To Conference Or Not

by Houndstooth on

It’s not much of a secret that I was away at a blog conference this weekend put on by BlogPaws. Often, the question comes up as to whether going to the conference is worth it. I can’t speak for everyone, I can only speak for myself. I don’t know everything there is to know about […]

If you’ve been a long time reader of the blog, you might remember that I was extremely surprised to win an award last year at BlogPaws for Best Blog Photo.  I was very surprised to be nominated, even more surprised to become a finalist and shocked when they said my name at the awards ceremony. […]

Even after going to […]
