This has been one CRAZY year!
It never ceases to amaze me how much can happen in the space of just a few months and I often wonder why we look forward at the year ahead often just assuming it’s going to be the same old same old.
At the end of 2010 I could never have imagined the things that would happen to me this year and I say that realizing we still have two full months of the year left!
Here’s a quick summary of the year so far:
- I spoke at my first conference, the Type-A bloggers conference
- Our car got stolen
- We bought a minivan… brand new!
- Our client base has expanded dramatically.
- I’ve designed a dozen or more websites and have been paid for them for the first time
- We have reached our goal and can pay for a well to be built in Africa
- I’m about to go speak at the biggest blog conference anywhere in the world!
- and I’ve met some AMAZING new people!
As I write this, I’m just thirty hours away from getting in my car to drive down to L.A. to visit and speak at the biggest event of my life so far!
BlogWorld is HUGE!
A few statistics:
… and I’m a part of it.
It’s a huge honor and a very exciting opportunity but I’m beginning to get a touch nervous now.
I’m not a big people person. I’m very shy and introverted and when you go to an event that 4000 people are attending where one of the main aims is to network and meet new people, the prospect can be a little, let’s say, daunting!
I’m sure it’s going to be fine and the session I’m doing will go well (although my preparation run-throughs have not been so good thus far).
But the prospect of it looming on the near horizon is definitely making me nervous!
If you’re going to be at BlogWorld, I’d love to meet you. It might not look that way because I’ll be the shy little mouse cowering in the corner, but I’d love it if you came up and said HI!
