How and Why I’m Going to #BlogHer10

I hope that for my readers you don't get sick of me talking about BlogHer 10 for the next month.  In August I'll be celebrating my 3rd year Blog-iversary and this will be my very first blogging conference ever!  A little over a year ago my blog took a turn in a new direction when I decided to sign up for Twitter - and my life hasn't been the same since.  I've met so many wonderful readers, bloggers, companies, and more - I feel so blessed to be where I am today.  Why do I want to go to BlogHer?  I have had so much fun this past year with my blog, Twitter, and especially with the creation of Eco Chic Parties that I want to see what else is out there.  What am I doing 'wrong'?  What could I do better?  What are other bloggers doing?  In past years I've read blogs and tweets about others experience and the wildness that occurs when 2000 mom bloggers unite.  But doesn't it cost money to go?  Yes, it's not a cheap trip.  The conference ticket alone was a few hundred dollars + hotel ...

Site Maintenance and New Features

Ahhhh, Earth Day is over and I can finally breath just a little better.  While I absolutely love this time of year I often find myself buried under a mound of projects.  Today I finally took some time to update my blog features, pages, and sidebar.  I still have some more ideas to be on the look out for so visit often.  In addition, I have some awesome reviews/giveaways lined up for the next few weeks!    What's changed: 1.  Notice a NEW page at the top called 'Cloth Diapering.'  This is an archive of all my cloth diapering posts, reviews, and giveaways.  This is a great place to go if you are looking for something specific.  2.  GONE - Current contest and specials page.  I'm working on adding that to the sidebar.  3.  NEW social media follow tags.  You can now click the 'Follow Me' tab on the left of the page to find me on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and for my RSS Feed.  4.  NEW: I am now an affiliate with Kelly's Closet so when you shop from my affiliate link (on ...

Do You Have What it Takes to be Eco-Terrific?

Dear bloggers and businesses, Do you have what it takes to be Eco-Terrific? Each month of 2010 I will be featuring one lucky blogger or business for free under my sponsors section.
