Relevant 2010


About a month and a half ago, I was exploring several different blogs and I noticed that they all had the similar buttons on their sidebar. They looked something like this....

I had to check out what this conference was all about. I went to the Relevant Conference website to explore. I was immediately intrigued. It is not just a conference for super experienced bloggers (which I am not!), but also for those who are just starting their blogging journey (that's me!). I closed the page and went to take care of my little munchkin. Meanwhile, I kept wondering what it would be like to learn from and be encouraged by other bloggers just like me.


The next day, I found my way back to the same website to explore a little bit more. This time, I read about the purpose of the conference (here). Wow! This conference was not just for any bloggers, but those who want to glorify the Lord through their blogging!! That was me! Again, I clicked to another page and tried to forget about it.


I returned to the website one more time, and noticed that it was being held only a couple of hours away from where we live. I just had to mention it to my husband. After hearing the details, he said that he would really like me to go! In fact, he urged me to go ahead and register that evening. I was so excited that I could barely concentrate in worship practice that night. I couldn't wait to get home and register!!!

The Lord provided finances for me to go and learn more about the in's and out's of blogging, and I am so excited!! I am looking forward to the time to enhance my blogging ministry, and meet some amazing women at the same time!! See you soon!!

I went to Blissdom which was my first conference in Feb. and really enjoyed it. I would love to go to Relevant but that is still to be decided.

I'm so happy you will get to experience something like this!

So exciting! I had very similar feelings of curiosity and excitement - and I'm also fairly new to blogging, and Relevant will be my first conference too! Looking forward to meeting you there!

Rachel,
That's so cool about your husband wanting you to go and encouraging you to register. It's nice that Gather Inspirit is hosting this Relevant Attendees tour - it will make all the new faces seem much less intimidating. I too found that this blogging conference felt so different from so many other blogging conferences and that was one of the main reasons I wanted to attend.

That is fabulous that you get to attend the Relevant Conference! This is something that I would love to be able to do; however finances and 4 children to care for, as well as a full-time job prevent me from doing it now. Bring back lots of tips for me! Blessings!
