Houston Blogger Symposium

This past weekend I attended the Houston Blogger Symposium put on by the amazing Megan from Greetings from Texas. The first night was spent at Langford Market getting to know all my fellow bloggers.

I am deep in thought while listening to the many speakers on the panels. I learned so much about blogging, sponsorship, and PR. I was so inspired after the symposium, it was awesome!!

Meg! It was so great meeting you too! I can't wait to hang out again. And thanks for the sweet comments about my outfit.

Ana, it really is great knowing there's such a supportive group of bloggers here in Houston.

Wallee, we did not have BBQ, I still haven't tried true Texas BBQ...yes I know I'm a horrible newbie Texan!
