Eye spy an event that had been posted on Facebook about expecting moms and moms w/ children under the age of 6 months to attend Baby Bloggy Boot Camp. An instant email went out to the SIT GIRLS for more deets.
A mother of 2 now with the newest addition at the time being 2 months; I figured this was the perfect event to continue with my networking and socializing for 2014. Not to mention the event hitting home run; Baby Bloggy Boot Camp touched on many topics from creating compelling content for moms, tips on sponsorship(s), and becoming a mommy blogger. Great topics, right! I thought so. I mean I am a mommy and a blogger.
ABOUT THE EVENT
Baby Bloggy Boot Camp was held in San Diego, Ca, at the Bahia Resort Hotel February 28th. Not only was this a perfect opportunity to keep on a socializing pace but we, my family and I, were all able to head up to Diego to visit my sister and her family throughout the weekend. In all honesty I had no idea what to expect as this was my 1st conference I would be attending.
An agenda to start at 9:30-12:30pm in what you would have expected to be a sunny day was not so shiny. Rain rain go away but that didn’t happen as it was here to stay but this was not to stop me from attending.
I walked into a room with ladies ready to check us in and an even bigger room filled with mothers, some expecting, some with their child, and chandeliers. This was not your typical boot camp running and being screamed at by Sargent’s. LOL.
My table consisted of 6 ladies including myself. Katie @overflowinbrain to my left and Meghan @crazycasak to my right. Intrigued by Shara @palmsandpigs who came down all the way from Charleston had me beat. Thinking my Orange County to San Diego drive was aways to go was definitely no match to Shara whatsoever.
Baby Bloggy Boot Camp was a definite success. I left with a ton of information, met some lovely ladies, including Amy, a blogger at Amy Corbett Storch. Amy shared her testimony to her successful blog and switching over to now a mommy blogger. Her story was surreal and really authentic. It was such a pleasure meeting her. I have to say it was the highlight for me to speak with her after the event. Amy was definitely down to earth and didn’t mind providing me a few pointers.
Starting my day with this event left me feeling secure that I was meant to do this. With effort, confidence, and most importantly originality this was my brand to perfect. Not being alone as I too was surrounded with many mommy bloggers who were there to strengthen their knowledge.
Not only were we able to take home a great deal of information to help out with blogging but we received some awesome take homes as well for our sweet babies. This was definitely a great treat for my little Miss Olivia and I.
The products provided included a Liz Lange maternity dress, honest diapers that included a compact lotion, detergent, and body wash to name a few, and three very well needed products: Ergobaby swaddler, 360 carrier, and wrap carrier. Awesome right?
The Liz Lange dress was a bit large for me but that didn’t stop me from rocking out in it. This is what happens when you’re socializing, the common sizes are taken. Nonetheless, I went as far as heading down to Target to search for the maternity wear as it can be figure flattering, offering affordable luxury, and did I mention you can locate it at Target too. Although I’m no longer pregnant the selection and styles are awesome.
The honest collection was oh so new to me as it was the 1st time hearing about it at the event. The Eco friendly diapers were just the cutest thing ever. Due to the diapers being a bit big in size for Olivia now; I decided to go on the site in get the right size. It was so nice to see they have a discovery kit which includes your 1st set of 10 stylish diapers & wipes (10 count) at no charge. The only responsibility you had was shipping and handling cost that may vary depending on where you reside. I fell sooo in love with the diapers that I ordered a bundle.

The 360 carrier has been my all time favorite. This piece has been everywhere. Grocery store, pretend city “museum”, park, walking…Let’s just say where hasn’t it been. The wrap carrier and swaddler were very useful items as well. If it was not for the live tutorial of the wrap carrier, I would have been lost. Thank you thank you thank you for this demonstration it certainly made things easier.
