Blogcademy Scholarship Entry


I really, really, really want to go to this blogging workshop in March, called the Blogcademy. Some of you have probably heard me talk about it on Facebook. It’s two days in Portland and is taught by some of my favorite bloggers, Gala Darling of, Kat Williams of Rock n’ Roll Bride and Shauna Haider of Nubby Twiglet. These ladies are all super talented and know the biz of blogging inside and out, as they have been doing it for years. Not to mention, they all look like they would be a lot of fun to meet and hang out with. So it’s a no-brainer for me, if I get to go to this, I am sure to learn a ton AND have fun.

Alas, my heater has broken AGAIN and the money I was going to spend to go to the Blogcademy (my tax return), now has to be spent fixing the furnace. I can’t let my boyfriend and pets freeze!

But all is not lost, there is an opportunity for a scholarship, so here is my video application for the Portland Blogcademy. I have to say, putting together this little slideshow was a really fun exercise and and a chance to reflect on all the cool things I have been so lucky to do and be a part of. Let’s hope that the Portland Blogcademy can be added to that list!
