Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a fantastic week!

Have you ever done something totally crazy and irrational? This weekend I am all the way on the other side of the country, in Portland, Oregon, to attend at least a little bit of the World Domination Summit. I’ve heard it is a great conference, and I’m sure it will be inspiring, and I also get to hang out with my mom and sister for a couple of days while I am here, so it’s all good.

 But do you want to know the truth?

My main reason for traveling 3,000 miles was to get a chance to meet Darren Rowse of ProBlogger.

When I first started blogging, I must have read Darren’s book ProBlogger: Secrets to Blogging Your Way to a Six Figure Income at least 50 times, maybe even more. It taught me a lot, but even more than that, it inspired me, motivated me, and encouraged me that I really could make a living by blogging. And after I met that goal, it was what inspired me to write my own book on blogging. I wanted to be able to help others the way Darren helped me.

I don’t normally get star struck, but today I totally am. Wish me luck!
