1. My anxiety and fears were unfounded
Yall I was so nervous to go to Bloggy Boot Camp. I had never been to a conference or driven alone in Dallas. [Hello nerve wrecking!] I felt like everyone was going to stare and point at me when I walked in. [I know.. its dumb!] My fears were completely unfounded! Everyone was so nice and I got to meet some amazing people! I had a few people even recognize me.. talk about rock star moment!
2. Have one main purpose
One of the things that all the speakers seemed to repeat was to have one main purpose for your blog. My main purpose for blogging is to help others. That seems like a broad topic to cover in one blog! Im trying to revamp my blog and its purpose to be able to reach more people. My main purpose is NOT to make money but I feel like its ok to be compensated for my efforts.
3. Set business hours
I now have official business hours for my blog! I am not making thousands of dollars off my blog but sometimes I feel like Im spending thousands of dollars worth of time working on it. [Does that make sense?] I am first and foremost a stay at home mom and thats not fair to my kids or myself. So starting today my business hours are:
-[Lovely September Sponsor]-
- Easy Crock Pot Chicken Tacos - May 4, 2023
- Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino - May 1, 2023
- Easy Churro Bars - April 24, 2023

Love the idea of setting business hours. I'm first and foremost a stay at home mom as well…GREAT ADVICE my friend! It sounds like you had a blast! This makes me so excited/anxious to go to SNAP! :o)
