Breaking Busy with Alli Worthington {an Author Interview}

In January 2016, a friend of Blissfully Domestic wrote her first book. I'm honored to have had the opportunity to interview Alli Worthington and discover the in's and out's of how Breaking Busy went from paper to publication. I'm happy to know Alli Worthington as a personal friend, and I'm excited to introduce her and her new book, Breaking Busy, to you. I had so much fun reading Breaking Busy. It reads as if you are sitting in a coffee shop, with Alli, and enjoying each others company and conversation. The way Breaking Busy is written is so conversational…it's just like having the best talk between girlfriends. Without further ado, Alli Worthington, ladies, and gentlemen. {My questions/comments are in bold.} What made you want to write Breaking Busy? I wanted to help other women get … [Read more...]

Planning A Girls Getaway at Blissdom

We all know that, besides being the best conference for women bloggers who want to learn more about their craft, BlissDom is the one chance we get each year to reunite with our online friends IRL.  To sit and enjoy time with other ladies who “get” us and mix geek talk, life talk and blog talk together in a mish-mash that the majority of our friends at home just don’t understand.

Here’s my solution: Plan a Pre-BlissDom Girls Getaway! Instead of arriving the day events begin, why not come in a day early?  You’ll get the conference room rate and have a day to … [Read more...]
