I returned home yesterday after a five day trip to a social media conference in Utah. It will take me the next six months to implement just a portion of what I learned at Evo ’12. I guess it’s fair to warn you that you will start seeing some changes around here. I hope you like them because it would be a real drag if I spent the time and money to make changes, and you hated them. The end result, I hope, is a site that better serves my readers.
For now, I want to enumerate why I’m glad to be home:
- Hot water. The conference was at The Canyons resort in Park City, UT. It’s a great place with beautiful views, friendly service, and lots of amenities. But hot water was not one of them. The water wasn’t actually cold, but not really hot, either. I took a very long, very hot shower this morning. That’s probably more information than you wanted.
- My bed. No matter how comfortable the bed is in a hotel, it’s not my bed. Somehow, I don’t sleep as well without a snoring husband and a couple of kids draped across me.
- Wireless Internet. Yes, there is wireless service in Utah, but with 350+ women (and a few men) all trying to access it at the same time, it crawled along, or not at all in my case. I couldn’t stay online for more than five minutes at a time. So, my plans to work uninterrupted by kids while I was there didn’t quite work out as planned.
- My kids and my husband. They are mine, and I missed them. A lot.
Here are a few pictures from my trip. I really enjoyed the conference, and I highly recommend Evo ’12 if you are thinking about blogging or using social media for business. For now, I’ll leave you with a few pictures from The Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah.
