Topic of the Week
Empathy with an awareness of the interdependence of all things,
and the strong desire to alleviate suffering.
My Topic this week is Compassion, as a parenting issue it is pretty obvious. We all have compassion for our kids, and I think hope to instill it in them. Today I will not be talking about that because I am all about Bloggy Love. After spending a terrific Saturday with 120 of my fellow bloggers I am just giddy with my appreciation for all the fabulous bloggers I met and for all the terrific things I learned.
Number one on my list, if you are a woman blogger, attending one of the Bloggy Boot Camps is one of the best things you can do for your blog. New bloggers get a ton of how tos and seasoned bloggers get an injection of new ideas and new found love for blogging. Since I can't consider myself strictly in one or the other of those two categories (My Everyday Bliss Blog is almost one year old, this one is just over three months old) I benefited from both things!
But don't just take my word for it. I've gathered up some of the first reviews of the event I could find (all garnered from my original Boot Camp Hop participants -- my thanks for your playing along!!) and I've started a hop for all Boot Camp review posts. If you have written about the San Francisco event please do link up so we can gather all the collective wisdom and share the love!
