Mitten Moms
A few weeks ago {I am still recovering} I hosted a small blogging conference in my small town of Petoskey, Michigan called the Mitten Moms conference. The conference focus was to inspire local Michigan bloggers experienced and beginner to come together and learn from each other while supporting small business in Michigan. The conference attendees not only had educational sessions focusing on accounting, legal issues, monetization and photography but they were able to experience the small historical town of Petoskey through the nightlife, dinning, shopping and a ghost tour. A very eventful weekend that allowed for some down time to enjoy the beautiful surrounding but to also learn from each other, make new friends and learn about some Michigan products or companies supporting Michigan bloggers.


I’m very thankful to all the sponsors, speakers and attendees and the experience helped me to expand my own business and make some new decisions for growth. I’ve hired a bookkeeper, I’m Mitten Momslooking into updating my review policies, contracts and disclosures with a lawyer and yes, I’m hoping to have another Mitten Moms conference. I’m practicing my photography skills thanks to MenDale Glenn and some of the tips given by Dina Freeman with Baby Center, I’m taking to heart. I’ve also come to love a few new Michigan companies and brands and this October I’ve highlighted a few of them in my Mom Pulse October Haul video {see below}. Overall, the conference was a success and I’m glad Stacey from Stacey Says enjoyed the weekend with her kind of people, that Kalamazoo Rocks loved the Turbana Plantain Chips – they are delicious and Just a Bit of Magic made an amazing soup with her Randall’s beans!  I loved spending time with so many amazing bloggers with all different backgrounds, experiences and advice to share. The feedback from the attendees certainly tells me the conference was well worth the effort and sponsors contributions.

Why not? Great tips for free!
