Weekend Scoop: Conference Videos, Giveaways and More!

by Kay Lynn

I’m going to get this post published before the night is over so it’s still technically the weekend scoop. What a weekend! It kicked off with deadly storms in the South which had to share media coverage with the wedding across the pond.  Then as I write this breaking news is that Osama Bin Laden is dead.

I’ve been glued to the television for news on all these events. What a wide range of emotions they bring as well.

Conference News

You might remember I attended the local Bloggy Boot Camp in March. Find out why I blog in this video taped at the event. I’m in there around 1 minute 45 seconds.

This next video is promoting the first ever Financial Blogger Conference coming up this Fall in Chicago. I am registered and looking forward to meeting so many of my friends and colleagues.
