Whenever I see the #altnyc or #altsf hashtags start to show up in my social media feeds, I always feel a pang of envy. The Alt Summits have become the hot ticket for rookie and established bloggers alike. Given that tickets to the Alt Summits in New York, San Francisco and Salt Lake City are notoriously hard to get (they cap attendance at about 300) and since my budget is a little lean these days, I jumped at the chance to sign up for Alt for Everyone. For the first time Alt was taking their summit online. Over the course of three days I had the chance to hear from some of my favourite lifestyle bloggers and connect with other bloggers from around North America.

It was so perfectly timed! I've recently cut back my hours as Director of Communications at Theatre New Brunswick in order to pursue other communications consulting work as well as my own projects. Continuing to build and develop The Glad Girl is definitely part of that plan. I can't wait to work on the tips I got!
I'm also working my through the blog roll of the participants - so many lovely blogs to check out and I hope to share some of my favourites here with you. I have to give a special shout-out to Crystal from A Bunch of Britts who included The Glad Girl in her Alt roundup. She's a designer, Starbucks addict and new mom. Go check out her blog!
