Finding My Bliss At Blissdom Canada

It is the time of year many Canadian bloggers look forward to. Blissdom Canada has arrived and we all descend on Toronto to meet new friends, reconnect with our friends and find our Bliss.

I am not going to lie. Last year as I attended Blissdom Canada 2012 as a community leader I was ready to quit blogging. I had lost my voice, lost my drive and no longer had love for blogging. In fact I left Blissdom Canada thinking though I was always a devoted Blissdom girl I may not be back in 2013.

Thankfully about 4 months ago I found my love again. I am sure you may have noticed personal posts becoming more the main type of posts around here. This is my new focus. Yes I will still bring you great reviews of some fabulous products but I am no longer a product review blog as my main focus. I never even intended for that to be my focus but it happened.

Today is the end of day 1 of Blissdom Canada. I am so happy I have returned. I am still a 100% devoted Bliss chick and I am finding my Bliss. We had an AMAZING interactive and inspiring keynote by Eric Alper. We even had a few sing alongs led by Matt Dusk.

There were great sessions throughout the day that inspired me and reminded me why I do what I do. The main theme I found ringing through out the day was to find your voice and never lose it. That and write every day. You don’t have to publish but at least write something. Writing helps us improve our craft and find our creativity. Something that stuck with me today was “If you are human, you are creative”. We are all creative, you just need to find your creativity.

The most moving session of the day though was the social etiquette workshop. That session deserves it’s own post. I will get that to you when I am back home next week. It was very moving, gave us all a huge gut check and had many of us in tears.

I am so happy to be here at Blissdom Canada. I am truly finding my bliss and the Bliss Chicks have done an AMAZING job at bringing us a fantastic conference.

  1. So happy to hear your having a great time. I hope one day I will be able to attend with you and find my Bliss. :)

  2. I did a one day conference in Boston once and it was so overwhelming that I swore off blogging conferences for life. I know a lot of people go to Blissdom here in the US, but I won’t be going. Ever.

  3. I can’t wait to read your next post! And I’m so glad your having a great time, I wish Blissdom was still in the states. I’ve never been to a conference yet and I am really want to go to one!

  4. I’m hoping I can make it to Blissdom next year. Like you, I’ve had to balance reviews on my blog as I find that too many make me tired of blogging. I do try to write every day and so far, I really love what I do and I haven’t ever seriously considered quitting. :) Thanks for sharing!
