On Wednesday, I went to the Blogging Seminar at the Portland Home & Garden Show and had the best time. The PHGS included this group photo on their Facebook Page which made me laugh. That’s my arm on the far left… just my arm.

Here’s a better one of all of us… yay!

John & Sherry Petersik from Young House Love led the blogging seminar and I’m so grateful to have been included in it. They shared a ton of great information about blogging.

If you haven’t had an opportunity to read Young House Love, I highly recommend it. They are a home, DIY, decor and life blog that is beautiful and informative. Also, they are two of the most authentic people you could meet… on their site AND in person. What you see is what you get. And they’re adorable too!

They were sweet and generous with their time and with sharing what they’ve learned over the last 4+ years of blogging. Not only did I leave with tons of notes, I was completely encouraged to follow my passion, be true to myself and give the process of blogging time.

They wrapped the discussion with autographed postcards and photos with attendees.

Definitely an inspiring afternoon!
