You know the old saying “You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone”?
Well, I believe the reverse to be true too, you don’t know what you’re missing ’til it’s been found.
2013 was a pretty crazy year for me. An epically crazy year in fact, and even that is an understatement! Amongst the host of life changing events that took place that year, was losing my conference virginity. October 2013 – my blog was a mere year and a half old, I was just starting to figure out this whole blogging thing and I was at some conference 4 provinces away that I had been talked in to attending even though I knew virtually no one… No, I literally knew no one (with the exception of Julie and Shannon), I virtually knew a few fellow BluntMoms, but as online persona’s only.
I jumped out of my comfort zone, and in to Blissdom Canada. Immersed myself in a conference a couple hundred bloggers deep, full of sponsors, vendors, 3 roomies I had never met before, and of course some of the most amazing people to ever have touched my life, who unbeknownst to me at the time would become my sisters, my rocks, my friends, my community. There is a reason they call this conference “Bliss”. In three days I learned more than I ever could have imagined, I laughed so hard I cried, I cried so hard I laughed, I danced my tail off in a leopard print onesie, and I won a hockey stick signed by Bobby Orr!
I went to Ontario last year with few expectations on what the three days would have in store and I left counting down the days until I would be there again.
Blissdom Canada is taking place again this year in Mississauga, Ontario from October 2 – 4 and you can bet your leopard print onesie wearing ass that I’ll be there with all of the bells on. It is without question some of the best money I have ever spent, and continue to spend! If you’re a blogger, a wannabe blogger, social media enthusiast, brand, or just someone who likes to have a good time around amazing people – Bliss is where it’s at.
This year, the peeps at Blissdom Canada have a super awesome #ThisIsBliss share and win contest, giving you the opportunity to win your conference pass, as well as a Grand Prize contest that rivals being in the audience at Oprah during the taping of Oprah’s favorite things.

Hope to see you at Bliss this year!
