THE BLOGCADEMY: A SHORT NOTE
Monday night I flew back to Toronto from New York City—eyes wide with excitement and ideas flowing. I attended The Blogcademy over the weekend. This is the first ever blogging workshop founded by Shauna Haider, Gala Darling and Kat Williams (the Headmistresses). What a weekend!
I had been following graphic designer, Shauna Haider and absolutely admire her as a designer and blogger. She is a major inspiration behind me wanting to start blogging. I was done with my website being a static portfolio and unsatisfied with only micro-blogging—Twitter, I still love you! I wanted another medium to express myself more in-depth. All summer I had been contemplating the idea.
Through Shauna, I had learned about Kat Williams of Rock n Roll Bride and Gala Darling—both kickass, inspiring women! Back in August when Shauna posted about the Blogcademy, I knew that I needed to be part of it. First, I danced around the room and jumped about. Then, I signed up almost immediately. I was eager—but did not have a blog yet! It would be the momentum I needed to get started. I love throwing myself into challenging situations.
The Silk Studio in NOHO, Manhattan was full of enthusiasm. 30 Blogcademy attendees packed the room along with a bunch of helpers, decorations and tons of swag! The days to follow were full of insight and big laughs. Shauna, Gala and Kat offered their blogging insight, inspiration and tons of humour.
That’s all for now. More details and eye candy to come later this week! //
