The 2:1 Conference that went beyond facebook and twitter...I have formed relationships with some of my girls that I know will last a lifetime!
So what's holding you back? Will you be joining us at The 2:1 Conference this year?
2. Size...This one is HUGE to me....I LOVE the fact that 2:1 is small and intimate. I have been to conferences of all sizes...(I mean come on my first ever blogging conference was BlogHer '10) Many people seem to LOVE the huge conferences, but to me there is nothing better than a nice small conferences where I am not just trading business cards with bloggers and companies I will never remember and see again, but actually see some of the same people as much as I want, and form lasting relationships...(see point 1) :D
3. We are all homeschoolers...you can go an entire weekend without ever once getting "the look" you know...the one that says "OH she's one of THOSE those weird, crazy, people who teach their kids at home and don't socialize them...you know the look...You won't get that look at ALL
over the weekend while at the conference. Actually it's the norm, and you will be getting the How many kids do you have, how old are they, type of questions instead.
8. There are no "untouchables" Ok seriously, I know, especially for those of you that have never been to a conference before, you may see some of the speakers, or other attendees planning to come and get a bit nervous...Let me tell you (This is in no way an actual guarantee) but can ALMOST assure you that none of the attendees, speakers, or even Cheryl (the awesomeness behind the conference) will bite. :) Seriously y'all, this is another benefit of a small conference...I mean, as attendees of last year's conference, we even have a Facebook Group to help us all keep in touch!
9. The Price...Seriously...I know that if you are thinking of going to The 2:1 Conference, you are most likely a homeschooler, and probably a blogger too...as we all know, that can translate into tight finances! The 2:1 Conference strives to keep prices as low as possible...The conference ticket is only $199, which includes entry to the conference, including ALL of the sessions and events, as well as dinner on Friday, breakfast, lunch, AND dinner on Saturday, and Breakfast and lunch on Sunday...PLUS snacks! If you need help with the ticket, feel free to scope out your own sponsor, or check out the partners page to get connected with sponsors!
"Our theme for 2013 is “Give HIM Room”. Imagine what could we accomplish if we followed God’s leading rather than our own! We will wholeheartedly explore the dynamics of that possibility while praising Him and growing our online space."
|Disclaimer on this one...It's actually from Allume 2012, but I didn't have pics with Cheryl and Aurie from 2:1 2012, and I couldn't fathom not including them!!|
