I am having all the feels this morning. I cannot think of a better thing to wake up to. Thank you Allison and to all of the attendees and speakers for sharing your thoughts about our annual conference. I could not be more grateful for this event, the people who make it what it is, and the thoughtfulness of including HippoCamp in this podcast.
I enjoyed not only the conversation with Kristen Arnett but also vicariously reliving HippoCamp through your “on the ground” interviews with speakers, attendees, and volunteers.
Reblogged this on Her Headache.
I enjoy Christmas music and podcasts. I am glad this event is covered. I hope to attend, after being blessed to be published with them this year. Maybe ext year I will be there to hear all the excellent speakers in person.
Until then, bring on both holiday tunes and this latest Brevity podcast.
