CONNECTING: At the Southern C Summit
When we’re young, our lives are filled with new experiences. One of the hallmarks of childhood is making new friends. Sadly, this can slow down as we get older. Some folks even take the stance that they already have enough friends in their lives and don’t seek to meet any new ones. Since I began blogging in 2009, I have met so many wonderful people and made some truly meaningful connections.
I can’t imagine what my life would be like without these interactions and friendships that have come to mean so much to me. One huge part of making connections in the blogging world comes with attending blogger events. This is why I’m so excited about the upcoming Southern C Summit on Jekyll Island. I’m sure I’ll come away from it with some great takeaways, some great information for my blog and brand. But the thing I’m most excited to come away with is the opportunity to create some lasting relationships.
These are the things that make blogging worth it, to me. No man is an island. We can’t do what we do alone. It’s so important to have people around you to bounce ideas off and inspire each other. Iron really does sharpen iron.
If you are still trying to decide whether or not to attend the Summit, I hope you will. Your next best friend could be there!
So ready for May! Look forward to seeing all of y’all at The Summit!
Kate, looking forward to meeting you at the Summit and sharing the stage, too! I’ve been following Southern Belle Simple and so enjoy your take on the south. See you soon. Mary Dell Harrington (Grown and Flown)
