I haven’t blogged in days because I flew to Altlanta for the Haven conference, the conference for DIY bloggers.
I was so busy the whole time that I just didn’t have time to blog. The three days were filled with catching flights, taking notes in sessions, tweeting, and Instagram.
But now I’m home and can’t wait to blog about the conference. Gosh, I learned so much again.
Blog conferences are good for my soul because only bloggers understand what it takes to be a blogger. And they are so important for learning more about the next steps I need to take to grow Dagmar’s Home.
Thanks again to my sponsor ClosetMaid for paying part of the conference costs.
When I arrived, I met up with my roommate Lynn Fern, got freshened up, and we went to the Ballard Designs Haven Newbie reception. It was hot and muggy and I asked the bartender for the perfect refreshing summer drink — a Radler (half a beer with lemon soda, try it!).
The next morning, we had to get up early to grab some breakfast before the opening talk at 8:30. After meeting Rhoda two years ago, it was wonderful to finally make it to her conference!

Lynn and I are definitely motivated and ambitious, both bloggers, DIYers and small business owners with a booth at the Newburgh Vintage Emporium.
I had spotted a Maggiano’s across the street when I arrived, and Lynn and I had dinner there. This was one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles, Don and I went there several times before we moved to New York, and it was like a walk down memory lane.
Did you go to the Haven conference this year? How did you like it?
