I have had a fantastic couple of days, with speaking engagements at two blogging events. The first was on Friday and was a Bloggers Brunch put on by Christie from Kids Business. I was one of the five speakers who talked on the topic of goals and I focused on blogging goals. It was very inspiring to listen to the other speakers:
- Melinda Gainsford Taylor – spoke on health goals and her weight loss journey.
- Susan Jackson – Financial goals
- Heather James from Inspiring Mums– using goal setting
- Bernadette Black, 2009 Barnardos Australian Mother of the Year – spoke about overcoming adversity and achieving your dreams
After the talks it was lovely to spend time chatting with other bloggers who I have met before and meeting new bloggers. While we spend most of our time communicating on line, bloggers do love in real life meet ups and there is always so much hugging!
The event was held at Family Life in Grattan Street in Prahran. It is no longer open as a cafe but as a functions venue. It would be a great place to have family friendly event.
Nuffnang Blogopolis 2011
Then yesterday I had the pleasure to speak at Nuffnang Blogopolis. I spoke in the first session on Tools of the trade. You can see a full copy of my slides and notes on my other blog – Blog Coaching Boost.
Then I moderated the last session of the day which was a panel of amazing bloggers, Darren Rowse, Helen Yee, Eden Riley and Candice Deville discussing the past, present and future of Blogging In Australia.
Bree from The Blog Stylist live blogged the event and you can see all her notes on the sessions here. I will give you a photo based snap shot of the day!
Felt very grown up catching a train in on my own to Fed Square. The conference was held at Zinc and was a great venue.
A bit of caffeine to get me going!

Christie from Childhood 101 talking about Blogger Burnout in the Content session.

I made some Teacup Biscuits and added a business card to them to hand out at the conference. Thanks to Glowless for the photo!
The team at Nuffnang.
Fire display on Southbank as I make my way to post conference drinks.
Drinks were held at Showtime at South Wharf. Gorgeous venue, little tricky to find though!
Very funky communal wash taps in the toilets at Showtime!
I should now have a photo of very tired and a little fragile me! I had a great day at the conference and had so much fun dancing and partying with bloggers and the Nuffnang crew late into the night.
How was your weekend?
