I still have so much that I am digesting from the EVO ’10 conference back in June. I know it’s crazy. It’s been over a month and I still have notes I’m going through and setting plans in place to implement some things that I hope will better not just the blog but myself as well.
A major thing I did occurred at the closing party at the Park City Mountain Resort. I conquered my fears and went on the most thrilling ride of my life.
So let me set the stage for you..
See that arrow near the top of the picture? It’s pointing to a platform, I know you can barely see it. Well that’s because it’s ALL the way up the mountain! Mind you, I was zoomed in all the way or else you probably wouldn’t even be able to see it. So that little platform is where my journey began.
Did you hear that buzzing sound? Yep, that is the sound the cable makes when you are flying down a mountain at about 50MPH..
But more astounding than that flying ride was the opportunity to meet some more wonderful ladies! Two of them I have been watching with awe since I began blogging. Jenny, @jennyonthespot and Laurie, @tipjunkie were so much fun! Laurie and I bonded over our fear of going down that string in the sky. And I was SO appreciative of Crystal, @travlersbarista who was kind enough to offer to head down with me instead of making me go with just some random person.
I cannot put into words how much this conference really “evolved” me. I’m so much more conscious of my writing and being authentic for not just myself but my readers. I’ve realized that ultimately I’m writing for me. If I start writing for someone else then the passion I have dwindles.
