Relevant Bound!

I'm not entirely sure but I think I registered for The Relevant Conference before I even published a single blog post.  If it was not before my first post, then it was soon after!  I couldn't help myself once I knew my two favorite bloggers in the blogosphere- Ann Voskamp and Angie Smith- were going to be speaking at the conference.  I asked my dear, IRL and online friend, Andrea if she would be interested in going together and when she enthusiastically agreed, we signed up on the day registration opened!

I am so excited for this conference!  Since registering, I have checked out the blogs of all the other speakers and many of the attendees as well.  I know it will be a blessing to learn from the speakers and attendees.   Gather Inspirit, whose vision is to "simply to inspire, encourage and uplift all bloggers in their journey and in life" has also helped me get to know many of the attendees.

I must admit, I have also had some anxiety about the conference since I am new to blogging and don't have a big "following" as it seems many of the attendees do.  I've wondered if it is the right place for a small voice like mine whose intent is simply to reflect on my walk with the Lord and live in community with others who love Him and read and comment here.  When the session topics were released, my anxiety was relieved as I realized they really do apply to all kinds of bloggers.  Oh and there's this!  Chocolate has always relieved my anxieties before so if I need an emergency fix, I'll be all set at Relevant ;)
"The Relevant Conference exists to offer a place of face to face interaction with Christian women bloggers who want to be relevant in the larger blog and social media world. Our goal is to go beyond the surface into intentional blogging and real life living. We support women turning their hearts toward home and using their blogs to bless their families while also engaging the world for the glory of God. Relevant is a one-of-a-kind conference that seeks to engage women by teaching blogging techniques and social media skill while also urging and encouraging women to live fully integrated lives with their faith and family."
 Won't you join me at Relevant?

Oh I wish I could go! Alas, I do not believe it will happen this year. I am also enjoying reading the blogs of some of the speakers. I pray you will be blessed at the conference! :)
