Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged - Recapped

Recently, I attended my very first blogger conference, right here in my own state.

When I first started blogging, for some crazy reason, I thought I was the lone Arkansas blogger. Soon I found out there were more, many more! I met a few last year at Little Rock CheeseburgHer, and even more at the Arkansas Womens Bloggers Meetup in December. And you guessed it, I met even more bloggers fom Arkansas, along with a few from out of state at this mini-conference.

Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged was hosted by the Ozark Natural Science Center, (an absolutely beautiful place, in what appeared in the dark as, the middle of no where!

I learned so much, and took pages, and pages of notes. I would have Tweeted some of the great information, but because of our remote location, we were truly unplugged. Following is information that should have been Tweets.

Sounds like you learned a lot. But it does sound strange that a Blogging conference would leave you all with no technology. I think I'd go crazy if I couldn't tweet, blog, etc. Glad you had a great time.
