Last week I went to my first blogging conference, Blissdom.
I had a blast. Okay, maybe that is a slight exaggeration. Really I left feeling kind of really overwhelmed. It was a lot of women. And a lot of information.
But I would go again in a heartbeat.
I learned. I was inspired. And I met some amazing women. Amazing women…who blog. Amazing women…who blog and tweet.
Here are six you should follow. Right now. Go check them out. And don’t forget to tell them I sent you.
Follow her on twitter: @dedraherod
Read her blog: Just a Chick
Dedra rocks. Really, she does. Just ask anyone who has ever met her. They will tell you “she is sweet as pie.” And even those of us who typically “don’t do sweet” can’t get enough of this beautiful lady from Alabama.

Sarah I love. She is beautiful inside and out. I keep praying that she wants to be my post-blissdom friend. But truth be told, she doesn’t have much of a choice in the matter.
Follow her on twitter: @emilychats

Emily just signed a two book deal with Revell. (Congrats Emily.) She is smart. She is kind. She is a gifted writer and photographer, her blog incorporates both.

I first “met” Robin when Compassion took a trip to India last Spring. (She beautifully captured the people she met, the poverty she encountered. Not an easy thing to do.) So when our paths crossed at Blissdom, I was beyond excited. I expected Robin to be perfectly wonderful “in real life.” But I didn’t expect her to be larger than life. She is. Larger than life. Robin works a room like no one I have ever seen. And I love it.

Amber is gorgeous. Inside and out. Her writing is incredible. Guess there is a reason why sat on two of my favorite panels, Content is Queen and The Writer’s Craft. Oh, and her husband gave her this incredible gift, The Mother Letter Project. Have you heard of it? (Warning: If you are prone to husband envy, I’d stay away.)
Lindsey (I knew I liked her as soon as I read her nametag. She spells Lindsey correctly. Lindsey. Not Lindsay. Which is wrong.)
Follow her on twitter: @thepleatedpoppy

Buy her stuff: The Pleated Poppy Store
She brings new meaning to “crafty.” Her “poppies” were all the rage. All the rage. I can’t wait to accessorize with mine.
That’s all for now. I have several more women I want to introduce you to. But I will save that for another day, for another post.
Will each of you recommend one person for me to follow?
Please include twitter “handles”, blog addresses, and why they are follow-worthy.
