I had a F to the A to the B time in Scottsdale, AZ for the mother of all blogging conferences – Mom 2.0. In fact, as usual, I’ve already purchased my ticket for Mom 2.0 2016. Can’t get enough.
This year was awesome because:
A) I didn’t bring a baby
C) I met the most amazing ladies whom I now call my friends.
I had SO MUCH FUN! Oh and I learned some things too – always a bonus!
So what do you do, Annie?
- I write a lot of sponsored content and don’t have enough time for my own content because I’m…
- TOO BUSY EDITING UP DAILY YOUTUBE VIDEOS ALL THE TIME!
- I take tons of pictures.
- I travel a lot.
- Proud owner of a selfie stick.
- I have four kids.
- I was a teacher first.
- I have an amazing husband who lets me do this crazy STUFF and he’s basically Mr. Mom – EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
What about you?
Ok, I met so many amazing women who also have four kids and also have hubbies that do it all – like cook and clean and stuff. Wow, how’s that for validation? I took a lot of selfies and made lots of videos on this trip – perhaps I should just introduce everyone that way. Ok, not everyone has four kids, but still. I was hanging out with amazing women from West LA, Miami, Canada, New York – all over! We laughed A LOT and took a few selfies.
Ok, so those are some pretty fun ladies you need to check out for so many reasons. I miss them a ton. My roomies brought “roomie gifts!” Who DOES that? Did you know roomie gifts were even a thing? Guess who didn’t bring roomie gifts? Totally making it up to them next year at Laguna Niguel. Luly’s a hot ticket – between her constant praises and self-esteem build up on the regular, combined with Aimee’s amazing YouTube secrets, I was hanging with the best of the best. Room 419 at the Ritz Carlton Scottsdale was like it’s own little mini-conference – not to mention all the laughs. Those girls taught me some Spanish!
So who am I anyway? Am I a YouTuber? Am I a blogger? Can I do both and do them both well? I feel like I’m obsessed with videos and photos – it’s probably what I do best. So perhaps I need to focus more – hone in – give you a weekly series of some sort. Who the heck am I?
Do you feel connected to me on the Tube? Am I entertaining? Do you like following our adventures? Please tell me you do. But do I need to do a video EVERY SINGLE DAY? Gahhh, what have I gotten myself into? I know no one cares that it’s happening daily except me. But some of you are surely watching it, right? Maybe? Sorta? Here and there? Maybe I’d have more time to write HERE if I was a little bit more focused over there. See what I’m getting at? Stretched thin on social too? Yup, I guess it’s a thing!
So I got a new bra and got to play with TOYS!
It was really an amazing time – full of great opportunities to partner with new brands and learn how to get better at all of it. Oh, and I had some time with Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy too.
So here’s what I do know. I love YouTube. I love taking pictures and I love to travel. What do I do now? I also know that I didn’t break my foot today like I did this time last year. That kinda sucked donkey balls.
See you at Mom 2.0 2016 – back to Laguna Niguel we go! Can’t wait.
Oh and by the way, I’m now the proud owner of THREE selfie sticks. Yup, that’s right. Be jealous. I think I’ll send the Stow Kids on the bus with them tomorrow.
