If I have learned anything over the past year, it’s that I really enjoy meeting and being with other bloggers. It’s fabulous to have the opportunity to be with other women like myself. It’s not often that I run into a blogger in southwestern Virginia (although, I know that we exist). It is with that in mind that I am applying (and sincerely hoping to be chosen) to win a ticket and lodging plus $100 for Brandcation.
I am excited about this one because it is located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. I have been there several times and it is just a few hours away from me. This means I could get there in just a few hours by car. It is happening the first weekend in October. Since I hope to be teaching by then (fingers crossed), this would be a much welcomed break from it all. I know that this first year will be super hard and I will probably need something to look forward to in the fall. Attending Brandcation would be a little personal vacation which every special educator needs from time to time. It would mean that I would have the ability to connect with bloggers I know online and would love to meet (Hello Trisha from Mom Dot) as well as re-connecting with awesome bloggers I already know, like Candace from Serendipity Mommy.
Also, let’s be honest. I would love the chance to connect with more brands (which blogger wouldn’t). I also think the posted activities for the weekend sound fun. I mean they’ve already scheduled a trip to the Titanic Museum (which you already know has my heart). Not to mention the fabulous cabin they are staying in. I want to attend Brandcation to have fun, meet other ladies that I can connect with and who understand why I do what I do online, and to get away by myself for a weekend. Plus, I’m lots of fun, laughter (obviously), and I have a sweet southwestern VA accent.
Disclosure: I am posting this to be entered to win a free pass, lodging, and $100 for transportation/food for Brandcation which is being given away by MomDot, Minnesota blogger Life with Levi, and Toni from Just Stop Screaming. I really hope I win. Fingers crossed. The opinions expressed are my own, obviously.
