One, as of March 1st, Google Friend Connect became nonexistent as of March 1st (four days ago—I’m slow as usual). If GFC is the only way you follow my site, you will need to subscribe via the RSS feed or email. I’m also on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.
And two, this is the last you’ll hear from me on ITRML this week. Friday and Saturday is the Story@Home conference and I’ll be busy making sure all loose ends are tied, all giveaway winners are registered and I’m fully stocked on Depends. I’m doing a bit of emceeing Friday afternoon and Saturday and I’ve about wet my pants about it multiple times.
If you’re going, I can’t wait to see you there! My friend Rachael is one of the keynotes on Friday and my friends Tauni and Jenny are presenting in workshops on Saturday. Of course, there’s a fab lineup of speakers and presenters, but those three are my faves. (Friends are always faves.)
Here are just a few fun updates about the conference:
- Story@Home will feature iTell, a comfortable lounge with a professional videographer who will record your 15-minute story. They will have interview questions and topic ideas on hand if you’d like to tell your own story, or you can snag your conference buddy and interview her (and maybe even learn something new!). You’ll receive a disk of the session right then and there, or you can opt receive an MP3 version after the conference. And it’s FREE with your conference ticket! Check out the link for more details and snag a time before it fills up!
- Though you choose a track when registering, feel free to hop off track as much as you’d like! We’d love for you to mix things up a bit!
- The Lower Lights will be doing a pre-show Friday night before the big Story Slam. You can buy extra tickets for $7 if you’d like family and/or friends to attend the pre-show and Story Slam competition that evening (think cheap date night!). For more info on the Family Story Slam, click on the link above.
- We are offering a Boxed Lunch Bonus on Saturday featuring two of my most favorite people, Kim Orlandini and Lindsey Redfern. For $10 you can enjoy a delicious boxed lunch (I’m 99% sure it will be catered by the Garden restaurant) and be inspired/amazed/uplifted by these beautiful women. I just bought mine! All you do is go to the registration page and choose the Boxed Lunch Bonus option from the drop-down menu. Then you follow the prompts to register and pay and you’re done!
For info on the types of classes offered, check out the Story@Home agenda. Don’t miss out on this super local, super affordable, super awesome conference (and me making a fool of myself on stage Friday!
Wait, you can totally miss that, I won’t mind. Feel free to get a nice, long drink or use the restroom between keynote speakers.
If you’d like to see photos of the venue and a sneak peek of the ultimate in swag bags, check out the Story@Home Facebook page.
Don’t you think it’s about time to tell your story in all its fabulous glory?
