So here’s the deal. I want to go to SNAP
. (SNAP is a craft and social media conference in Utah, targeting the best bloggers representing modern handmade, contemporary craft, mind-blowing events and home DIY). So then go, right? What’s the problem?
Well, you see, I’m shy. The thought of going and knowing no one scares me. I mean, obviously I’m going to be alone in the corner when everyone else in the room is bffs. Ok, I’m exaggerating. But honestly, the thought gives me anxiety.
Shyness and anxiety have been things I’ve dealt with my whole life. It takes me a while to open up and be myself around people (then why do you have a blog, weirdo?). Let’s just say it’s a lot less daunting for me to be myself on my blog, than to introduce myself to a bunch of people that I *may* know of, or that *may* know of me.
So I’ve been pondering and pondering this “dilemma” in my head and then I realized something. I need to get over it. Face it. Deal with it. Do it.
I’d be meetings hundreds of other girls. Girls who inspire me. Girls who share the same interests as me. Girls who understand the reason and work that goes into a blog. Networking will be done, but more importantly, friendships will be made. Why would I ever pass that opportunity up?
So. I’m going to go, officially. As long as you promise to say hi to me if you see me! ;] I still need to figure out the details as far as flights and hotels (anyone need a roomie?
) but I’m going to go. I can’t miss it!
If any past-conference-goers have advice or tips for this newbie, I’d love to hear what you have to say!
And……..are you going to SNAP?
What about Creative Estates?
