Having never been on a cruise before, I thought it best to step on board with no expectations.
Sure, I was excited to get away and spend some much needed kid free time with awesome bloggers.
But a boat? Would I get sea sick? Would I be heaving over starboard? Would my diet through the entire 3 and a half days consist of ginger pills, herbal tea and not much else?
None of it happened. But I did do a lot of laughing. Like serious, bowling over in stitches, not being able to catch my breath, my core muscles haven’t had such a work out since that time I tried to plank for 60 seconds.
And what’s a cruise without a Jack and Rose moment?
Wait. That’s right. It was a conference.
Alongside the continuous giggles, we had some fantastic keynote speakers who spoke straight from the heart and with lots of passion. Sharing some great tips from Debs at Learn To Play At Home on how to be a Pinterest Queen to Kelly at Be a Fun Mum on how to find the “Why” to your blog.
With no brands in sight, there were only open and frank discussions on how to find your authentic voice and using it efficiently among your community.
It was truly a conference of bloggers for bloggers.
It took a bit of explaining, letting him know how awesome we all were but eventually, even the captain got it.
