I was bestowed the honor to give away a ticket to the Las Vegas Lifestyle Blog Conference. Thrilled to be a part of this experience, I jumped at the chance, much like I hopped onto the back of the LLBloggers group on Facebook.
And let me tell you, it’s been the best piggy back ride ever!
How did it all begin for me? On a typical day, I logged onto Facebook and noticed I was added to a group. I rolled my eyes, expecting it to be another annoying forum where members bitch and moan about their days, or worse, post personality contests. Luckily, no “What type of movie star are you?” quizzes were posted. On the contrary, I found well written posts about beauty, fashion, food, entertainment, self-improvement, relationships, business and more.
Days soon turned to weeks and I found myself immersed and invested in the Latina Lifestyle Bloggers group. I joined conversations willingly and contributed daily, at times more than 4-5 times a day. LLBloggers had become my new addiction. One that filled a void stemming from childhood, where I had little support from others in regards to pursuing a creative career. Through comments on each others posts and general help regarding social media, pressures in the industry and how to increase brand opportunities, I found the support I had sought for years. I found willing Latinas who not only want to succeed but also want to lift each other up through collaboration and the sharing of resources.
These women have become my hermanas, which means only one thing: the LLBloggers group feels like home. And, just like I do my home, I want to help spruce it up!
So here I am: a member and now co-moderator of the LLBloggers group; a willing participant and eager collaborator; and a part of the Vegas Latina Lifestyle Blog Conference. But enough about me. Let’s get to that ticket giveaway!
