It’s been a whirlwind of a last few days, y’all.
On Friday, it was announced that I’d be the new TBEX Community Manager, an opportunity I couldn’t be happier about. If you’re outside the travel bloggy world, I’ll remind you that TBEX is the Travel Blog Exchange, a blogging community and conference I’ve attended every year since it began in 2009. I made quick last-minute arrangements to attend this year’s conference in Colorado, which I gushed about later, and I’m positively giddy at the prospect of being the advocate for a community I adore so very much.
Today’s my first official day with TBEX, and in practical terms it’s a part-time gig – which means I still get to do freelancing and my own projects, although it also means I’ll have a much shorter client list than I thought I might need when I started freelancing in early June.
But really, it’s nearly impossible for me to stay practical when I think about this position. It’s community – y’all know how much value I place on community. It’s a community I know, love, and have been actively engaged with for more than six years. Plus? It’s a community that has already given so much to me over the years, it feels like this is my chance to give back.
If you are part of the travel bloggy world, I am excited to serve you – I am bursting with ideas, and eager to hear yours. I look forward to meeting you (online and in person)!
