  • Online BlogCon has come to an end, and I want to thank so many of you for making it a success! I’ve been amazed over the weeks to see how these amazing bloggers have come together to form a supportive and tight knit community. I’m so impressed. If you didn’t attend Online BlogCon, you can still meet some of these fabulous bloggers! Follow their twitter and facebook pages by clicking through the Rafflecopter form found on this page.
