I don’t think our paths have ever crossed but I’m a big fan of your blog. Your projects and personal story are inspiring.
(People are SO KIND!)
I wanted to reach out to you about BlogPodium, the conference I created for Canada’s design and lifestyle bloggers.
(Wait… there’s a blog conference in Canada?)
Now in our fourth year, our next conference will be happening on Saturday, September 13, 2014 in Toronto
(Fourth year? TORONTO!!! How did I not know this?!)
and I would love to have you as one of our Keynote Speakers.
Past keynote speakers have included Nicole at Making It Lovely and Sarah Richardson
(Are you kidding me? How did I fall into this category?)
and when I asked attendees who they’d like to hear from at this year’s conference, one main recommendation was you.
It would be fantastic if you graced our stage this year.
As one of Canada’s most successful bloggers,
(I read that line about 80 times)
Your consistent risk taking, belief in yourself, and excellence in blogging is a story I know will inspire our attendees.
I’d love to bring you to this side of Canada
I sat for about 30 seconds digesting the words and request. Disbelief and gratitude overwhelmed me.
You know that feeling you get when you question if you’re taking your life on the right course? This email diminished that doubt in an instant.
I was just gifted with another amazing opportunity to share my own dramatic life change, and how others can also change theirs, through their God given talents and personal passion. I will get to share blog secrets, how I continued to LOVE blogging through a changing blog world, and so much more.
And I would get to meet more bloggers I’ve only dreamed about meeting!
And take in Toronto!!
So I did the only thing I could…
Keynote speaker, BlogPodium, Toronto, Me? Yes!
Now you know what a keynote is, right? You help set the tone for the conference. You say your own thing, but you capture the essence of the entire weekend. Why are we here? What brought us to this point? And how do we move forward in meaningful ways?
And how on earth did I ever get to land on a stage at BlogPodium?! I’ll let you know as soon as I figure that one out!
I’m just sooooo grateful I get to share what’s on my heart in a whole new way!
And then I checked out where the the conference will be held. The Fairmont Royal York is jaw dropping amazing! LOVE a little history in the mix and this hotel does it.
Additionally, doesn’t this scene make you a little giddy for more? What’s to see and discover while in Toronto? With my curious mind at work, you KNOW I’ll be taking in that CN tower at the very least!
What brings me even more pleasure is the fact that my camera will be hard at work, capturing a beautiful city. If you’ve ever been curious about this area, you’re about to experience Toronto (and possibly more) in full colour! Giddy!
I love this. No, I LOVE THIS!
I just want to say I LOVE THIS I LOVE THIS I LOVE THIS all day long!
And yea, it goes without saying, if you are a blogger and would love to experience a one day blog conference in Toronto, click here for details. Because I would LOVE it if you’d join me! All of us! Come and play and learn and travel and be inspired!
Thank-you Jennifer, for including this west coast blogger into your mix. I cannot WAIT to step onto that plane in September and fire up this new adventure…
So… what do you suggest I see when visiting this area? I can’t wait to get lost all over again…
