I had the pleasure of attending the first Gleek Retreat, a small blogging conference/retreat for bloggers organized by bloggers! It was held at the beautiful Into The Woods Retreat. Honestly the retreat was a treat in it’s self. Hidden with in Michigan’s beautiful woods we were pampered in a relaxing setting, offered massages and treated to delicious home made food. That was in addition to the awesome company us bloggers bring to any gathering!
It was great to meet some new blogging friends and to reconnect with some I haven’t seen in way too long. For a list of attendees visit the Gleek Retreat blog <a href=”http://www.gleekretreat.com/2010/05/meet-the-attendees-thats-you/” target=_blank”>here.
Also at Gleek Retreat, Stacey and Jodi did a great job at putting together the sessions that offered top notch panelist. The FTC, developing your brand, and photography were just a few topics that were touched on and discussed over the weekend. Done so well that even the most experienced blogger was sure to gain knowledge and walk away with some fresh and new ideas. I know I did!
I am happy to have been a part of this blogging conference and can not wait to see what Gleek Retreat has in store for us next year. Not that there is much to improve on.
