Recuperating from BlogHer16. Wondering if I want to go to NAMI California conference later this month. Prefer intimate get togethers where fellow writers support each other by sharing their knowledge. Do not get much from panel discussions. Plus, staying in hotels is expensive. Besides, I do not really want to monetize my blog. I identify as a writer and as a mental health advocate, not as a web-based entrepreneur.
Blessed to have met so many wonderful women in person, including the amazing and inspirational speaker Clementine Bihiga, Sarah Fader – who also rocked the stage, Julie Anderson, Hasty Words, Renee Robbins, Marla Carlton, Courtney Keesee, Gunmetal Geisha, and Ra (Rarasaur). Unfortunately, I didn’t have the opportunity to meet everyone I had hoped to connect with.
