10 Reasons I'm Excited About the 2:1 Conference

Top Ten Tuesday at Many Little BlessingsI will admit that after the day that I’ve had (coupled with the week that I’ve had from this time last week), the idea of the 2:1 Conference coming so soon is kind of overwhelming.  But, I’m still really excited about it too!

Reasons I’m Excited to Go to the 2:1 Conference

1. It’s only 38 days away!  It’s from April 27th – 29th.

2. I’m speaking at the 2:1 Conference.  This kind of sounds like one of those things where I’m full of myself because this excites me.  But, those that know me will know how much I like to talk and (hopefully) be entertaining.

3. It’s a chance for me to share what I’ve learned the hard way.  I really love when I can help people.  Hopefully my talk will help some people avoid some of the mistakes I may have made in my blogging journey.  Then again, it also may make some people realize that they don’t really have any desire to manage multiple sites.  But, that’s a learning opportunity too.

4. I’ll be rooming with Kris from Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.  Kris and I have been friends for quite a few years, but we’ve never met in person.  So, I’m excited to get to spend some extra time getting to know her by rooming with her.

5. The scheduled talks are amazing!  Since the 2:1 Conference is for Christian homeschool bloggers, there is such a great variety of scheduled talks.  (Really, I think there are enough talks that are specific to blogging that even non-homeschoolers would enjoy it.)  It makes me excited to be included with such amazing speakers and topics.

6. I can go listen to those amazing talks.  I’m definitely planning to go listen to talks when I’m not speaking.  But, I really think I’m going to need to talk someone into taking notes for me at Carisa and Jolanthe’s talk about organizing your homeschool day (since I’ll be speaking at the same time).  I really need that.

7. Ummm…Blogging with Amy, yo.  I bet that if I looked through all of my “Many Little Links” weekend link round ups, Blogging with Amy is probably my most linked to site.  Since Amy is speaking, I’m very pleased.

8. Making new friends.  I love having the chance to meet new people, so I always think it’s fun to go to conferences and make new connections and friendships.

9. Really great sponsors.  The 2:1 Conference has some really awesome sponsors.  I think it will be great to meet them and get to know more about them.

10. I don’t have to cook the meals.  It’s always nice to eat a hot meal that I don’t have to make!

    This conference sounds like so much fun! I would love to do something like this someday. Is this the very first 2:1 conference? I didn’t see any reference to “past conferences” on their site. Please tell me it will be an annual event! I couldn’t get the cute little graphic to work today (user error, I’m sure). I did add a link to your site, though. I went with a photo post today . . . now I know why I don’t do these very often: wow, that is a lot of work. Happy spring!

    It sounds like it will be a great conference! I would love to hear your talk :) I agree about the meals, nice to have someone else do the planning, prep and execution for a few days.

      Who knows if I’ll have anything earth shattering to say, but hopefully it will help some people. (And, everyone will find out that I like to talk with my hands. LOL)

    I really wanted to attend the 2:1 conf but it just does not work in our schedule this year :( Sounds like wonderful reasons to attend though!

  4. says

    I’m excited to attend as well :) Totally looking forward to an amazing conference with wonderful speakers!

    I heard Amy talk at Relevant last year and I’m looking forward to hearing her again. Her tips are wonderful!!

    And…it will be lovely to meet you!!

      It will be wonderful to meet you too! I just realized today (I think it was today) that I wasn’t following you on Twitter, so I made sure to rectify that situation. 😉

  5. says

    Well, here’s a reason I’m excited — I’ll be meeting you IRL as well! It feels as if I already know you. And let me tell you, I’ve been so blessed by you and your friendship.

    Thanks for doing the Top Ten Tuesday. I’ve linked again….this is addicting!

    love ya.

    You are going to have so much fun! Dianna’s SO excited about going! I have to say if I had to pick just one speaker at a blog conference it’d be Blogging With Amy – hands down.

    • says

      Yeah, I’m really excited to hear Amy speak (obviously).

      I’m also excited that Dianna is going to be able to come. I think it will be great to meet her in person finally.

  7. says

    Can’t wait to see you again {just got my ticket last week}!!! I’m definitely excited about learning more about the sponsors & looking forward to hearing the speakers, too! And of COURSE, seeing my online friends in person and making some great new friends, too!!

    • says

      I’ll be excited to see you in person again too, Ashley! It’s silly for as close as we live that we keep meeting up in places like Colorado and Pennsylvania. 😉

  8. says

    Oh, I’m going to Amy’s talk for sure. I’m seriously stuck though — during Angie’s talk, there’s Carisa and Jolanthe, and then a talk about preschoolers ….. I need to be in 3 places at once.


  1. […] now here’s where it gets really fun! I want you to make your own post, and link up with Angie at Many Little Blessings. She’s the new host of the Top Ten Tuesday carnival, and it’s a lot of fun. Hope to see […]
