Most of you know that I attended the Type A Parent conference for bloggers last week. As promised, I’m going to share the highlights, low points and what I learned at my first blogging conference. This is kind of messy and just thrown together. So please forgive the structure (or rather the lack of). I’m giving a minor play-by-play and some random thoughts.
My weekend got off to a rough start, which I wrote about yesterday. Fortunately, I arrived at the hotel where the conference was, just in the nick-of-time.

I completed my 10 Day Manifesto Adventure - and many thanks to Katie Den Ouden for providing the spark I needed. I’m also excited and nervous about leaving tomorrow for my first ever blogger conference. All good stuff (well, except for the teacher conference). Why am I telling you all of this?
