So, I just got back from Blissdom in Nashville. Have y'all heard of it? Blissdom is a conference for (mostly) women bloggers. It's a blast and it's made possible by the generous sponsors. So, excuse me please while I take a moment to love on Johnson & Johnson and Don't Fret the Sweat.
You may not know this. Okay, unless you know me personally, you probably don't know this, but I have a sweating problem. I don't mean, 'oh, ha, I sweat a lot,' I mean I sweat so much, it's a medical condition. I know, gross. But you can imagine how pleased I was to learn that two of the companies sponsoring Blissdom had the purposeful goals of keeping me sweat free and sweet smelling!
Don't Fret the Sweat (Unilever) had a booth in the expo hall where they were available to chat about the products and their company, additionally they gave everyone who attended the conference samples of their products. Yay, deodorant!!! I know it seems silly, but this genuinely made me happy.
Johnson & Johnson had a suite upstairs above the expo hall where you could relax and pick up snacks and drinks when you were ready to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all. They were also filming bloggers talking about what it means to give back. As someone who is pretty much incapable of saying 'no' to a charitable cause, I think this was awesome.
So, sponsors? Thanks! Thank you for providing such a great experience to so many wonderful women. (And a few men, too).
