What is Haven?

Well, it is the most amazing DIY blog conference IN THE WORLD! 

It started in 2012, and was officially the VERY FIRST DIY Blog Conference ever held.  No one had ever done anything like it, and there will never be another one as fabulous as Haven.  {Can you tell I am a little bias?} Smile

In 2012, there were 7 of us bloggers trying to make a dream come true.  We had all been to a bunch of other conferences, but we always felt like something was missing.

We wanted a conference related to all things HOME and DIY, just for our niche.

After a lot of planning and working hard, Haven happened!

And it was amazing!

There is nothing like hanging out with your online friends and making them your real life friends.  These women “get” me. Smile

Haven 2012 was such a HUGE success, that we immediately began planning Haven 2013.

Our planning team was a little smaller, but that didn’t stop us from putting together another amazing event.

This conference was even more special to me because I had my sister with me.

She makes everything better in my life. Smile She is a fashion blogger, but learned a TON from our blogging sessions, like advertising and SEO, etc.  Let’s just say that she didn’t go to the power tools class that I was helping with…no big surprise there.  hee.hee.  And I don’t think she went to any of the painting classes either….go figure.  But she enjoyed the sessions on decorating your home.

Another highlight for me was being able to teach everyone the DIY Shuffle that I created.  This little dance was TOO MUCH FUN!  If you missed it, you can see the video HERE.1098302_10151576782511134_2027206086_n

The Shanty Sisters were there, and we had a little scuffle at the opening party.  I weigh more than the two of them combined, so it was an easy win. Smile

Our speaker list last year was PHENOMENAL!  If you want to take a look at last year’s line up, click HERE.

This year, we are super excited to have HGTV’s Chip Wade as our Key Note speaker!

How cool is that?!

So why should you come to Haven, besides to get a picture with Chip Wade?

If you want to learn to use power tools, try new painting techniques, learn to style your home décor, or find out how to take better pictures, then you will love Haven.

If you want to learn to grow your blog, how to make money blogging, why SEO is important, and how to work with brands, Haven has got your covered!

And that’s just the half of it!

The very BEST part of Haven is meeting and connecting with other bloggers…hands down!

So do you want to come to Haven 2014?  I sure hope you do!
