I cannot believe that I am in the midst of planning our 6th Haven Conference!!!
How is that possible?!!
Seven years ago, a group of bloggers got together with a dream, turned it into a reality, and now we are continuing to enjoy a dream come true!
We wanted a blog conference just for our special niche…women who love everything HOME and DIY!
So we put our heads and blog muscles together and Haven was born. And over the past 6 years, it has become one of the top blog conferences out in blog land!
Bloggers from all over the states and beyond, both big and small, come to Haven each year to celebrate and learn from each other!
It is truly humbling to see hundreds of ladies, (and a some men too,) show up to participate in a life changing few days. All of the business cards on hooks in the photo above represent all of the fabulous bloggers that show up from each state last year.
And then there are the amazing sponsors that come to work with bloggers each year. They knock it out of the park every time, and it is so incredible to have their support each year!
We have two days full of sessions to help bloggers learn about the latest tips and techniques to help grow their blogs and make money doing it. We also have many hands-on classes where bloggers can learn how to use different products for projects on their blog.
However, the very, very best part of Haven is the networking and fellowshipping with other bloggers. I get to hang out with some of my best friends that I have made through blogging, and then I get to meet new bloggers that always continue to inspire me.
The attendees make me love what I do!
Last year was the first year that we had Haven Maven Mentor groups. Top, seasoned bloggers facilitated small groups of bloggers to talk about all things blogging. It was a great way to network with other bloggers. Below is Marian, Miss Mustard Seed’s group…
Hanging out with the attendees is by far my favorite part of Haven!!
Now our Haven Planning Team is four-strong….
Me, Chris from Just a Girl, Rhoda from Southern Hospitality, and Kristin our event planner.
I love working with these ladies, and we truly love planning Haven each year for other bloggers. Blogging has changed my life, and we want to provide other ladies with the same opportunities and experiences that we have enjoyed through blogging.
So here is the good news!!!
Haven tickets go on sale Wednesday!!!
If you have a blog or want to start one, this is the conference for you! If you have any questions about Haven, feel free to ask me in the comment section!

Have a blessed day, friends!
