Megaphone Summit 2019!

What is Megaphone Summit?

Megaphone Summit is an annual conference held in Bentonville, Arkansas for bloggers, vloggers, podcasters and social media rockstars presented by Soapbox Influence. Megaphone is entering its 9th year, the event will gather 150 – 250 influencers from every niche: lifestyle, parenting, food, fashion, travel, decor, health, fitness and beyond.

If you are someone who works in to create content for a particular audience, whether that be for a blog or social media content this conference is for you. How fun would it be to meet other online creators who share the same interests as you, in person! As online creators we don’t always get to connect with other people in person who get our lifestyle. When you attend this type of conference you have a chance to meet new friends and have someone in your corner who understands what you do, and why you love it! We work very hard to build our online following and reputation and sometimes people in our “real-life” may not get exactly what it is we “do”.

Breast Cancer…My Journey

Breast Cancer…My Journey

 

It’s October again, and I have decided it is time to share my journey. I guess it is more my story of my battle against breast cancer.

I recently connected with a follower on Instagram who fighting her own fight with cancer. Cancer sucks, plain and simple it is something that makes my heart-sick. I have had a heavy heart the last few weeks worrying about this individual. She is also a mother and a new breastie. She talked to me about being someone who has always been strong and has never backed down from anything. But I can relate to her broken spirit. I can relate to her sadness and her anger. I can relate to feeling defeated.

Rae Dunn Insanity

So I stopped by my local Marshall’s yesterday since I was at Target next door. I have pretty much gave up on looking for Rae Dunn on a regular basis anymore. I spent  most of the summer as we relocated with the Army from North Carolina to Kansas stopping at every TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Marshall’s I could find with zero to no luck. Not so much as even a mug, and my frustration was getting the best of me. The final straw that broke the camel’s back so to speak was an altercation I got in with another RD Buyer in a Home Goods in the middle of who know’s where.
