I have been walking on air since Monday night — when I received some pixie dust in my inbox. The coveted Disney Social Media Moms Celebration invite came. I had been in the city at work all day and then gotten a message from my dear friend Esti Berkowitz of Primetime Parenting that emails were going out. I quickly braced myself. Every year I wait patiently and hope it’s my turn. I didn’t think I would be invited yet again and I didn’t want to be upset if I didn’t get the email. A few minutes later I checked my email and my heart just stopped. I had been invited. And then my emotions came out and I just welled up in happy tears.
Here’s my vlog about it, that I made the next day. And yes, I got emotional.
So why did I get invited? I don’t know. I may never know. But I will tell you this. I did change my attitude last year. Instead of thinking, “Why wasn’t I invited?” — I decided to think about bettering myself and my blog so I would have more to offer as a whole — not just to get Disney’s attention. How could I be better to my readers? What do they want to see? What did I want to do to make things better.
My friend Melody designed a new logo for my site and we changed the colors. I also changed the look of functionality of this blog. I joined blogger groups on facebook to discuss blogging – one of my favorite’s is Brandi Jeter’s Courage to Earn group. The members inspire me daily to do better and to make my blog the best it can be. I spoke to friends like Esti Berkowitz of Primetime Parenting and Divina Rodriguez of Dancing Hotdogs who also inspired me. I got great instagram advice from Kristin Strange of My Strange Family.
I can’t wait to take my family to Disney Social Media Celebration. Hit me up with your best Disney Social Media Moms Celebration memories and going Disney World Tips!
