I think I have finally had enough time to process BBC Dallas. I did one post here about the social aspect of the trip…meeting some of my fave bloggers, getting our hair done, everything we ate and drank…etc. Now I think I am finally ready to get to the “meat” of the conference, the speakers. I learned sooooo much in a two day span that it’s really hard to summarize it all into one blog post but I will try my best.
One of my lady crushes is none other than the fabulous Tiffany Romero. I have been fortunate enough to meet Tiffany twice in person now, once at BBC Charlotte and this time at BBC Dallas. I have to say that she makes me want to be a better blogger and just a better person in general. She keeps it real and just puts it all out there. I love her style.
Isn’t she beautiful?? Even if she has a flower growing out of her head…LOL!! This is one o fmy fave Tiff quotes. I truly believe it and need to pick one thing to really focus my attention on. I feel like I am spread too thin these days between school, work, blogging, and everything else I am into these days.
And what better way to share quotes than by e-cards, duh.
Another amazing woman that I had only “talked” to on Twitter a couple random times is Danielle Smith. Danielle is the Queen of Vlogging. I have read so much of her stuff and her list of accomplishments is intimidating to me, but she is honestly the sweetest most down to earth person ever!!
I bought her book, Social Media Engagement for Dummies and I can’t wait to read it over Christmas!!
My fave Danielle Smith quote is this…
I am really learning to embrace this. Sometimes I will take on something just because its offered to me. I need to learn to be more picky and only accept things that I am truly passionate about. Lesson learned.
Another quote I fell in love with is from Bill Cosby. I think Casey from Collective Bias shared it with us. Casey is super fun. He talked all about SEO and about the new Google platform, Hummingbird. I feel like I still have soooooo much to learn about SEO!!! Every time i think I get the hang of it something changes!!
Another speaker I fell in love with but didn’t get a pic with or a quote from (I know, I’m kicking myself as I type this) is Lisa Leonard. She was just so inspirational!! I knew about her jewelry line but that’s about all I knew about her. Turns out she is a true social media maven. She taught us some Instagram tricks and I can’t wait to start using them.
Another awesome blogger/author I had the pleasure of listening to is Fawn Weaver. Fawn is a Facebook genius. Fawn also has her first book, Happy Wives Club, coming out soon!! Fawn knows all about getting a book published and shared some of her wisdom with us. Maybe I will want to write a book one day?
Last but not least, I am leaving you with another Tiff favorite quote…
Do you know who YOU are??
