So baby Ellie and I are home hanging out and working on finishing up some TPT products while I’m home on my “parenthood leave.” We like to listen as we work.

So far we have our number 1 FAVE podcast, which is Ear Biscuits with Rhett and Link (who also host our favorite youtube morning show). This listening is definitely entertaining and fun to listen to, but we’re all caught up and are looking for some new podcast fun.

My first TPT Unconference

Have you ever heard of an “unconference”?

I hadn’t either. In fact, I hadn’t even wondered what one was because I had never heard of one at all, until I registered for my first one!

My awesome teacher friend Tara ( @myfirstgradezoo) invited me to the Spring TPT Unconference.

Here’s what I knew when I agreed to go:

1. I would get to hang out with my friend for the day

2.We would spend the day in NYC

3. I have been home on Maternity leave for three months and I could use a day away.
What I learned while I was there was so much more than I could have ever imagined!

First of all I learned that an unconference is an amazing thing! It’s a participant driven gathering of people who come together to learn and share. There are no presenters, although there was a facilitator to get the conversations going and there are no slideshows.

Here’s What I loved about the unconference:

1. I got to ask questions and receive tips from highly successful (the MOST successful) TPT authors to get their input on future steps.

2. I was able to share what is working for me to help other new-ish authors.

3. Everyone was valued and respected.

4. The TPT office in NYC is amazing and I need a Bevi machine in my life!

It was definitely a milestone for me. I feel like “First TPT Unconference” is worthy of baby book status (hah).

I took away several awesome ideas and have some amazing next steps so stay tuned as we continue on this fabulous journey!
