I'm Officially Official + Bloggy Boot Camp Dets

I'm Officially Official + Bloggy Boot Camp Dets

You guys may or may not have noticed that over the weekend, I officially became a dotcom!!! And to think, it only took a year and a half. Fail! I know. But every time I worked up the courage to take the plunge, I was instantly assaulted with images of accidentally deleting my entire blog, or all of my comments just suddenly disappearing.

I suppose it didn't help that I googled "problems with changing to a dotcom" or some nonsense like that. It was basically the equivalent to using WebMD when you're sick. We've all been there before. You just want to check to see if you're symptoms are consistent with a flu and then three pages in you're convinced that you have the Ebola virus. (Seriously guys, that site is evil. Stay. Away)!

Anyhow, as I mentioned last week, Bloggy Boot Camp is making it's way to Charlotte next month, so I wanted to be sure I had all my stuff together before then. In fact, I just ordered my new business cards to commemorate my dotcom status, and am already frantically tearing through my closet in search of that "perfect" outfit. BBC is two weeks out, so if I'm this anxious now, I'm probably going to be unbearable the day of. I've already apologized in advance to poor James.

I've also informed him that he will be the DD the night before since I will be attending the pre-party Friday night. I'm admittedly a terrible drinker. I seriously have the alcohol tolerance of a three year old child, so I typically don't indulge.  However, I'm planning on letting my hair down (so to speak) and having a wonderful time with you ladies, and considering Mirassou Winery is one of the sponsors, I decided it was better to be safe than sorry.

I've been connecting with some of you lovely BBCCers on twitter, but if I somehow missed you, be sure to leave me a little love in the comment section so we can link up. Also, if you've been planning on losing the "blogspot" part of your address, and are need some help, leave a comment and I'll walk you though the steps. It's super easy, super quick and super cheap. Fear not ;)

Until next time

    1. The best advice I have is be sure that you're serious about blogging. That's part of the reason it took me so long to get to it. I kept going back and forth trying to decide if I was planning on sticking this out through the years, but then I reflected on how active I've been this past year, and how much growth I've had and just decided to go for it. Good luck to you my dear!
