For those that don’t know, my husband is a personal finance blogger. He’s a Certified Financial Planner but he ALSO blogs about personal finance. Make sense? You get the point. He’s OBSESSED with any thing financial. Kind of like I am obsessed with shopping. Except I think his hobby is less destructive than mine. Ahem.
This past weekend we attended the very first Financial Blogger Conference! I really had no idea what I was getting myself in to. I mean, yes I love to blog, but NOT about finance! And finance bloggers and mommy bloggers just seem like two totally different worlds.
I was pleasantly surprised when I learned that Matt from Debt Free Adventure and Bob from ChristianPF brought their wives too! We immediately hit it off! They both have blogs (and not about finance). Betsy blogs at DIY Natural about how to make all-natural products! Linda has a style blog called Rose A La Mode!
This is our red carpet pose! Haha!
I seriously fell in love with these girls! Do you ever just meet people that you have an immediate connection with? That is exactly how I felt when I met these two. By day 2 of the conference you would have thought we were long lost best friends!
I must admit, personal finance bloggers…are freaking COOL people! I don’t think I met anyone that I didn’t like. I had the chance to meet PT from PT Money (he was the mastermind behind making the conference happen), JD Roth from Get Rich Slowly, J Money from Budgets Are Sexy, Ryan from Cash Money Life, Pete from Bible Money Matters, Jeremy from Gen X Finance, Tim from Faith and Finance, Adam from ManVs. Debt, Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income, Kevin from KMull.com and so many more great people!
My husband was in networking heaven!
I think I almost cried when it was time to go. I wanted to take the girls home with me! No lie!
Linda, Betsy, and I are already planning a reunion soon! 🙂
