As I type this, (back at home in Adelaide, Yay), the weather outside is cold and grey, much like Sydney was for the four days I was there. But without the rain, although I suspect that isn't far away.
The washing machine is chugging away, the laptop is behaving itself, unlike last night, when all I could access was emails. Grrrr. You're history, lappie, I'm looking at all the options available out there with much more memory.....
Anyway, today I'm spending time uploading all the photos from my camera, sorting them into separate folders, and typing up my notes and trying to make some sort of story out of them.
I enjoyed my time in Sydney, AusBlogCon was a success, the conference itself was a good experience, listening to the women speaking about their blogs and lives was really interesting and I learned a few things that I should look into; like how to watermark my photos.
More importantly, I'd like to know how would I know if someone was taking content and photos from my blog and using it for their own purposes? I should have asked this question at the appropriate time during the session, but I'm not brave enough to get up by a microphone in front of alll those people.
I think the real highlight of BlogCon, for most of the women there, was the socialising at the dinner dance on the Saturday night. Not for the food especially, which was excellent, by the way, but for the party atmosphere. The DJ did a great job, and once the music started the dance floor filled pretty quickly. Boy, can those women dance! Unable to dance myself, (back, neck, hips-all would never forgive me), I really enjoyed watching them enjoy themselves. Lifted my spirits enormously.
For now, I'd better get on with the sorting and typing. I should be out shopping for bread and vegetables, but heck, there's a pizza in the freezer, plus several other options, the shopping can wait.
I’M SORRY, BUT I NEVER APOLOGIZE
