the best of 2013

With a relaunch in July, Where is June took on a whole new look.  It has been a year full of growth and creativity.  With over 200 posts, it was fun to look back and decide on nine to highlight as favorites.  Some were reader favorites, while others are my personal favorites.  Thank you so much for your continued support.  I truly love writing and creating this blog.  After taking a couple weeks off to rest and celebrate with my boys, I will be back here ready for a brand new year!  I hope 2013 closes with your hearts full and 2014 brings you nothing but happiness.

LESSONS FROM ALT

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

lessons from alt

I have been working up to writing a recap of my time at the Altitude Design Summit {ALT} in San Francisco.  When my friends eagerly asked about my trip, I instantly answered great!  Everyone has been so incredibly supportive and interested in how it went.  It was great, but it was also overwhelming.  The message I received {loud and clear} was ….I am going to need to work harder than ever.  No one is going to hand you anything and it won’t happen over night.

Granted, I didn’t think I would receive a folder labeled, “10 Easy Steps to a Wildly Popular and Successful Blog”.  However, my trip revealed that the pathway isn’t a clear straight path. There is no right or wrong way.  Just my way.  While exciting, that is also a bit daunting.  As the fun of summer with my kids is in full swing, I have found that carrying the momentum from ALT home has been difficult.  I have a ton of ideas, but not a ton of time to execute.  Like any new venture it is one step forward and a few steps backward.

Now for the conference itself!  Amazing.  Cathie Tosach with Bing shared, “Emotion is in the details.”  At ALT they take the details very seriously.  From the location {The Fairmont. San Francisco} and hosted dinners and parties, to the sponsors booths and goodie bags. The conference speakers and the attendees inspired me to be creative, driven, dedicated and fearless. While I am not all of those things yet, the message is clear.

Good things come to those who {don’t} wait.

You should always have a few good take-aways from any new experience and this trip is no exception:

1.  Cocktail parties are a very intimidating place- even for an extrovert!  It helps immensely to have girlfriends by your side,  even if you just met them an hour before at dinner.

2.  Even established bloggers {Jordan Ferney and Victoria Smith} face the challenge of continually creating inspired and original content.

3.  A room full of exceptionally talented and motivated women always makes me smile.  {And proud to be a girl!}

4.  Pretty sure I want a neon sign in my house.  {This one is pure awesome!}

5. If I wasn’t at home full time, I am pretty sure I would want to work at Pinterest.  Their headquarters is the coolest space ever.
