I have so many fantastic ideas from the past few days going through my head I am not sure where to start. ProBlogger for 2015 has been and gone, after all that anticipation. And let me tell you my friends, it didn’t disappoint. I am now back in Mt Isa, on my way home to reality. But here is a bit of a wrap up from my few days down at RACV Royal Pines for ProBlogger…
Firstly lets talk about the food… these photos certainly don’t do it justice but, wow! The food was amazing. I am pretty sure that Royal Pines went above and beyond what ProBlogger asked for. I thought it was going to be hard to top the food from last year at the trendy QT Hotel but I was wrong. It was amazing. I am pretty sure feeding 700 fussy photo taking bloggers wouldn’t be easy but they did it. Of course we were all there taking photos before we ate anything.
And what about the people. Wow again. I am still gobsmacked by how many people there were. I feel a bit disappointed that I didn’t get more of a chance to catch up with many people but it was just so hard to find anyone. I did my best to track down the people you asked for and have a photo… so here they are, my faces from ProBlogger 2015
Below we have Heidi from Between You and Me, Sue from Cozzies Swimwear and Me!
And Felicity, I found Kirsty from 4 Kids, 20 Suitcases and a Beagle. Not to mention the face behind my favourite podcast Two Fat Expats. It was so wonderful to say hi Kirsty. Have I mentioned that Kirsty lives over in Qatar in the Middle East? Have a good trip home, you are amazing!
Here she is again, had to get this photo when I noticed her sitting behind me during one of the sessions.
Of course I had to track down Nikki from Styling You. Here she is at the Cocktail Party on Friday night. It was so great to catch up Nikki!
I noticed Mrs Woog from Woogsworld, Heather Armstrong from Dooce and Vanessa from Style and Shenanigans having their photo taken so I whipped out my phone and took a quick snap. If It weren’t for Vanessa I would be nothing, I have bought so many clothes on her blog recommendations and I suggest you get on board. If you are after a good laugh then check out Mrs Woog, although if you are any sort of blog reader I am guessing you are already on board with this funny lady. Dooce was one of the guest speakers who travelled over from the USA, have any of you read her blog?
And of course a bit of stalking action wouldn’t be complete without tracking down Ainsley – From The Verandah. Turns out the Bushies are slowly starting to come to the party with this whole PBEvent thing. Ainsley lives on a cattle station and I suggest you head on over and have a look because I am pretty sure if you are a reader of Miss Chardy you will LOVE Ainsley’s blog. Her’s was one of the first blogs I ever read along with Baby Mac (who unfortunately wasn’t there this year). You should see her gorgeous family and home, amazing!
Here are my Roomies – Heidi and Annabelle – god you guys rock, I had so much fun, it was such a shame you couldn’t stay on Saturday night Annabelle, we really missed you.
Another gorgeous lady I finally met was Danielle from Zamamabakes. So glad we finally managed to get a photo together, I am pretty sure we might actually even be twins, same name too! Danielle has a gorgeous blog with stunning photos, she lives on the prettiest farm and I just love seeing all of her photos… oh she is pretty good with the odd recipe too!
Now when you have so many people staying in the one place things get a big clogged up and the Bar wasn’t the only packed place… it was that hard to get a lift that wasn’t completely chockers… sometimes we had to wait for 4 lifts to open and shut and go again before we found one to squeeze into.
I decided to take part is Styling You’s #Everydaystyle on Friday, even though it isn’t my “everyday style” ha ha ha…
Yesterday it was time to say sad goodbyes to most people for another year. I will be back ProBlogger and thanks so much for everything. It was a fabulous few days.
Check out this tiny car we saw on the way back to Brisbane, I couldn’t stop laughing and the fact that it was pulling a trailer was even funnier. I am petty sure Kel Knight – Purveyor of Fine Meats – was driving it.
Heids dropped me off at the airport quite early and my plane didn’t leave until 4pm, so I thought there was only one thing to do: head to the DFO. It was a bit of a let down but I did manage to find another pair of shoes and also some swimmers. I then went back to the airport and decided to make the most of my time, so I went through the limited notes I took from the conference and started to think about my action plan for this blog – my baby!
Then it was onto the plane and off to Mt Isa. They threw us on the dud plane – just because we are going “out” to Mount Isa doesn’t mean we should get the dodgy plane…. not even a screen. Felt like we were back in 1997 – lucky I had a book to read.
Right I had best get cracking and out of this hotel. I have a few jobs to do, a quick Woolworths shop and then the last leg of my trip home – the drive. See you on the flip side friends.
So tell me – Did I see you at ProBogger? Please remind me and feel free to link to your blog in the comments.
What was your favourite part of the conference?
If you weren’t at the conference, what did you do on the weekend?
