Let’s hang out in Boulder.
I’ve recently found out about the Health and Fitness Bloggers’ Conference happening in my own backyard (Boulder Marriott). I’ve never been to a blogger’s conference before. I’m not sure if I know how to talk to people. I might just blog and have people go in the lobby and read it.
Can I tell you how excited I am? If you want to join me, it is going to be three days of learning about health/fitness topics, blogging issues, social media. A couple of dinners are included. One a farm table dinner at Whole Foods, guaranteed to be nutritious, yummy and to give you gas. The cost is $250, but there are full or partial scholarships available. Go HERE for more info.
