Patty & I attended this years Reviewer’s Retreat 2012 at The Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, NC.

We really wanted to know what bloggers would need from us to do their jobs spreading the word about College Savings Dolls. The “Mommy Blogger’s” hailed from all over the USA & most brought their families to enjoy the water park while the “Mom’s” attended the conference.

We were first greeted by a carved rock entrance & mammoth doors. Seated at the table next to the doors was one of our hosts, Bridgette of Double Duty Divas. Patty & I were both given our lanyard, itinerary & a huge bag of swag.

We went to our beautiful room & planned who would go to which class, with two classes going on at once, it worked well that we had two people to take notes. The classes were awesome & we learned a lot about both sides; the brand vs. the blogger.

There were great parties to attend each night & when we left we felt like many of the women were old friends of ours.

I’m going to include links to our YouTube video of the swag bag & a great blog with pictures from the event by Sherry Aikens of the Super Exhausted blog.

If you are able, try to go to a blog conference & start your own blog. I am not creative but, it really is a great outlet for stress.
