I planned on writing a summary of what I got out of GodBlogCon, but then I read what Lores wrote on her Just A Woman blog about Excellence, Tone, and the Bork/Miers Lesson, so I won't reinvent that wheel. She nailed it.
When I decided to attend the conference, it was for what I could learn, so I can correct the stupid mistakes I don't know I'm making, or so I can learn other ways to do this better.
But the best part of the conference for me turned out not to be what I learned. It was meeting the other bloggers. In the end, people are what matter.
It's one thing to get to know someone by reading what he or she has written--and we can get to know them this way. But it's something entirely different to meet them in person. I've now put a face, a voice, a sense of humor (or not) to the words I've read. And I've met other people whose words I haven't read before but now want to. Sharing a common faith and a common interest with them has started me on the path to new friendships.
I'm glad I went. And I expect that I'll be back next year.
