Linking up with The Influence Conference
It's so hard to believe but The Influence Conference is in two weeks!!!! This will be my second year attending and I'm interested in seeing how this year compares to last. I am definitely an introvert, so anytime I attend a conference I'm always a bit nervous being around lots of people that I don't know and all the questions that go through my head such as ... will people like me?, will I say something stupid?, will I make any new friends? and on and on.
Thankfully, I have experience this year and I know that there's really no reason to be nervous and there are lots of things to be excited about such as ...
1) Meeting up with old friends and connecting with new ones: I was thankful to have made some sweet friends at last year's conference and am already planning some meet-ups with new faces I have yet to see in person.
2) Learning & Growing: There was so much good information at last year's conference not only about social media and blogging, but also about our relationship with Christ and how we live that out online. It's a lot to take in, but that's a good problem to have in this case. I'm already preparing to take lots of notes.
And as for what I'm packing ...
1) My phone charger: I learned from last year's conference that this is essential as I used my phone a lot to tweet memorable quotes from the sessions and to take photos.
2) Scarves: I love fashion scarves and given that Indiana weather in late September could be hot or cool, a scarf is a great piece to have along.
