|Anita Hovey and I acting out|
I thought I would be spending the day with other business owners. I thought blogging was a marketing tool. I thought that swearing in public wasn’t nice.
None of these turned out to be true at BlogJam2015 at the Marriott in Halifax on October 4th. What I learned is that I make a lot of assumptions!
Yes, there were some other business bloggers, but most of the speakers and attendees were not there for business. Mommy bloggers and food bloggers ruled the panel discussions. The few assumptions I had left were completely shattered during the closing keynote by Kaleigh Trace. One of her blogging tips was to relax and go masturbate. I swear every time she said ‘vagina’ I felt my mother cringe… and my mother wasn’t there.
My biggest takeaway? Blogging is a tool for expressing our passions and prejudices. And ‘success’ means something different to every blogger.
