I attended the Type-A Parent Conference last week. I had some thoughts of how I feel about this conference that I would like to share. I know some of you are thinking I am bias because Kelby Carr (founder of the conference) is one of my bestest friends but I promise you. I live by my title Bona Fide.
I left this conference thinking that #Typeacon is the Feels Like Family Conference!
This is my second time at this conference. My first experience of any conference was Type-A last year. I have been to a few others within the last year and this year’s Type-A Conference showed me that this is indeed the best conference for many reasons. However I have to share, you know I spoke at this conference. Well look what I found in a pile just a few weeks ago that I put on a post it note after returning home from last years conference! Ha-Ha!
These next few thoughts are reasons why you should attend this particular conference!
You learn a TON of information. As a matter of fact, all the other conferences were mainly about networking and partying. Although there are still the networking and partying at Type-A, the learning is in abundance. They do an amazing job at lining up speakers and sessions. You will not leave this conference without some excellent knowledge to use!
You would be amazed for any conference what networking does for your online life. The friends you make who will think of you when an opportunity comes and they need more bloggers. The companies that you get to know are amazing. If they didn’t want to work with you in some way, they wouldn’t be there in the first place! Just like you will see in the next thought, there is a lot of time at this conference to get to know those you would like to know better!
There are so many that say that #typeacon is the place to make those amazing relationships. I agree! You have the time to embrace time with others while eating, going out on the town or sitting on the patio. There is time in between sessions to chat or even to relax the mind (which you may need at any conference, ha!). You have quality time to meet other bloggers and those who work for the sponsors. As well as, you get to know them on a personal level. That’s probably why I feel like I’m #consick right now. I miss my friends new and old! By the way, my definition for #consick is depressed or melancholy at being away from a conference or longing to go back.
All of these things combined are why #Typeacon is the Feels Like Family Conference! Like some of these sisters I never had who are in my Social Media Moms Group that I had the privilege to meet face to face or see again! Love them all like family!

Question: Am I the only one that feels this conference feels like family? Am I the only one that is #consick?
