Walking into my first Alt Summit event last week, I knew at one look…oh yes…I had arrived. Glancing through the crowd at the Hello Social, it was a smattering of sparkles, polka dots, curls, and lipstick gathered together in conversation clusters. And it was a little intimidating. But after investing in my conference ticket, flying solo from San Francisco to Salt Lake, trekking across town in my trusty little rental car, with
business blog cards in hand, there was nothing left to do but take a deep breath and dive right in…and so I did.
For those who are not familiar, Alt Summit is a conference for like-minded bloggers and design-folk who gather in Salt Lake annually to learn and get inspired together. It’s a highly coveted ticket in the blogging world, and now I know why. I can only describe the three days I spent there as a life-changing event. I don’t mean that to sound cheesy…I hope it doesn’t…it’s just the truth.
I’ve never been around so many positive people looking for ways to collaborate together, learn from one another, and help each other out. It was truly inspiring. Aside from the incredibly informative sessions I attended, I can’t even begin to tell you how friendly and open every single person was that I met. What was it that I was afraid of again?
My head is still swirling from the magnitude of information, but keep a close eye on this here blog because I plan to put it to good use! Dreaming big over here thanks to Alt!
PS…the lovely ladies of Alt, Gabby and Sara, announced the most exciting news in Salt Lake…Alt Summit is planning to do a one-day conference right here in San Francisco on July 18th at GAP headquarters!!! Um, yeah, I will be there!
