Now, I don't mind these posts, I love reading about what makes a blogger happy and little insights into their lives. But a part of me does feel sort of left out. When I go through my reader, it really is only the "big" bloggers that are going. None of my favorite, smaller bloggers are going. Granted the big bloggers make money off their blogs and their blog revenue probably paid for the tickets, so they could afford to go no problem. But I feel like even if I could afford to go, I would end up just feeling like the girl that got invited to the popular girl's party only because she accidentally overheard them talking about it.
(That's me on the right. Not REALLY, figuratively) Maybe it's my own insecurities talking, I do have quite a few of them. I don't know. Maybe this really is my shyness shining through, and in reality I would just be utterly terrified to try to talk to all these women I don't actually know and who have seemingly perfect lives. Way too intimidated, how can I compete with bloggers who have massively successful shops, huge blogs, thousands of admirers, and who always look like a million bucks? (I'm still in my jammies with a cat in my lap.)
I think I would love the opportunity to network. To learn how to be successful and to love your handmade business. But I don't think I would ever go to a blog conference, I just don't think I'm the type of person that could truly benefit from it/enjoy myself.
What about you? Are you in my boat where you would feel totally intimidated and left out? Or would absolutely love to go? Or, are you actually going to SNAP this weekend? Share with me! :)
