Even though I have been blogging for over 6 years (and this was actually my 5th BlogPodium conference!) I still find myself learning new things from the highly knowledgeable speakers! This year, my key learning were more inspirational than practical blogging advice:
1. Comparison Is Noise // Tiffany Pratt said it best: stop comparing yourself to others. It creates noise in your life that is hard to see through, so just don't do it. We all have our own secret sauce and there is enough to go around... you just need to find what your flavour is and embrace it!
2. Your Guts Know the Answer // Sometimes you just have to trust your gut, and if your gut tells you something you should go with it! I find myself needing to trust my gut more often. There have been sooo many times when I've said yes when I should've said no, or vise versa, and it left me feeling icky! Trust your gut, always!
3. Being a Supportive Part of the Community Will Get You Far! // As a blogger, nothing will get you turned down faster than being negative or mean. Remember, what you put out there will always come back to you, so if you are kind, helpful and supportive the community will reciprocate. Spread love!
If you could only pick one, what was your one most important take-away from BlogPodium?
