Go Blog Social x Chicago

I had the pleasure of attending Go Blog Social in Chicago last weekend (and stayed with one of my favorites, Maya)! I cherished the opportunity to catch up with familiar faces (& meet some sweet new friends) and soak up some words of wisdom from some of blogging's best.

The trip was a total whirlwind, but I had a lot of fun - and it was quite a relief not to have to speak for an audience- and instead could just indulge in lots of coffee and live tweeting. My favorite part was probably getting to meet a few of the ladies from my Social Media With Style workshop- Cait, Hillary & Elaine. I also adored hearing Danielle from the Everygirl speak- it's one of my favorite sites!

I'm sharing a few of my favorite snaps and moments from the event throughout the post!

I snapped this picture at sunrise out the window & it turned out looking more like a watercolor!

Here are five of my favorite quotes from Go Blog Social Chicago- right from the live tweets from the event attendees!

Have you ever been to a blogging conference, or would you like to?

I'm loving all of the recaps from you guys! I hope to see you back down here in KC this coming February :)

I haven't gone to one yet, but I'm hoping to this next year! My problem is I never hear about them until it's too late! I guess I'm going to have to be much more proactive about it!! :)

Thanks for the shout out, girl! As always, I enjoyed seeing you, and it was great to meet the other Social Media with Style girls! Sadly, this may be the last time we connect before I move, but let's stay in touch! And, of course, always let me know if you visit NYC!! XXOO

Thanks for including my tweet! It was great meeting you Saturday. This was my first blogger conference and I had a blast. So many insights for my job in marketing, too!

I love this: "The secret to doing it all is believing that you can do it all." So positive and so inspiring.
