Purpose, Intention and Great Blogging

Let me tell you about the neatness that was Blog Savannah UnConference ’08. I got to meet some of the best and brightest in Savannah

And connect with some I already knew

It was a phenom time. I was most excited to be able to connect with other mommy bloggers during the the working mommy blogger breakout session. I had the opportunity to discuss purpose and intention with some wonderful smart mommies.

The neat thing about an UnConference is you can just discuss. As the UnSpeakers, Ginger introduced herself and I introduced myself. We discovered that we blogged with different purpose and intention – and both were good. As the discussion took off around the room, you found a lot of different intentions and purposes – and they were all good.

Some of us were blogging with a scrapbook feel. Others were looking for teachable moments. Some were supporting other bloggers as a research. All were concerned about our kids and their privacy. We talked a lot about how much is too much and where do you draw the line.

The moral of the story is that they all blogged with integrity. They focused on purpose and they lived by their own intention. It was a great opportunity to be reminded of the importance of these things in blogging.

I would love to hear how you keep them integrated into your blog…

  3. I had an UNbelieveable time at the UNconference. Thanks for your contribution. Your blog is so awesome — it was nice to finally meet the brains behind it! I wish that I been able to mingle with the mommy-bloggers since that is really what I am. I heard you did a fabulous job! There were too many great sessions to choose from! If you ever need anything in Statesboro, even if it is just a lunch date — let me know!
