Who wants to party? And a giveaway!

I've been thinking.  Wouldn't it be great to get a bunch of bloggers together?  To talk shop.  To teach each other things we learned the hard way.  To share the wealth.  Over the last few months I have met some incredible women, and to meet them in person would be awesome!

Then I saw an ad for a blogger meet up in Southern California.  I'm too late for that party, but it got my wheels turning.  What if we could get some bloggers together from both NorCal and SoCal?  What if we could meet somewhere in the middle?  What if bloggers from Nevada or Oregon or maybe Arizona want to come?  What if?

Think about it friends.  We could eat, drink, and be bloggy.  Someone could lead a session on buttons, ads, gadgets, or giveaways.  Someone else could teach a session on crafts, opening an Etsy shop, or how to manage one.  Maybe a session on using social media to get our name out there.  You see where I'm going with this?

I've decided this needs to be a poll, and if you aren't in California, please don't feel left out.  If we are going to do this you are invited too.  The best part is that this is a suggestion to grow on.  If we get a lot of interest we could do a sleep over.  I know I will have to stay in a hotel for this, even if it's for a day.  If we get enough bloggers together, we may be able to have the event somewhere and stay there too.  It's open to suggestion so please take the poll and leave comments.

Now here is the hilarious part.  I have no idea how to do anything techie on my blog.  Those ads you see over there took me like a day to install.  I messed them up.  Twice.  So I went in search in how to install a poll on the blog.  And it looked greek to me, so instead I'm using Rafflecopter.  That's right, I'm turning this into a giveaway for a $15 Starbucks gift card.  Don't like Starbucks, well I don't speak that language, but enter anyway, and I'll switch it to $15 to the store of your choice.

I hope you all want to party with me.  If not I'll just eat an entire gluten free cake to fill the hole where the love is supposed to go.

Happy Blogging,
Megan
