Yesterday I told you that I attended the Discovering Mas blogging conference over the weekend. Because of this conference I have decided to overcome my resistance to Twitter and will begin”tweeting.” Another thing I took away from this conference was this:
The sponsors for this conference gave all of the attendees some really great stuff. I had a lot of fun going through my bag of “swag.” It was filled with beauty and health products, food items, and all kinds of great stuff. Thank you Proctor and Gamble, Que Rica Vida and Avocados from Mexico!
But I wasn’t the only one to get something out of the conference. My husband Juan got something out of it too. As I’ve said before, Juan is a gadget guy, and he absolutely loves his Iphone. During the conference I texted him that I thought I would need a smart phone to help me Tweet and stay on top of my blog. He texted me back:
“Do you want me to give you my Iphone and I’ll get the new Iphone 4?”
Hmm. ….I don’t really love the Iphone because I can’t seem to get my fat fingers to work the touch key pad. Still, there are features I like on his Iphone that I don’t have on my current phone. Juan has wanted the new Iphone since it launched, and has tried justifying the expense of upgrading to a new phone . This was just what he needed. So, it turns out that Discovering Mas has really worked out well for Juan. Maybe it should have been called Discovering Mas y Mas. (Discovering More and More).
Here’s what I got out of the conference:
- Valuable information
- New relationships with fellow Latina bloggers
- A whole lot of great stuff in the swag bag.

And two of his favorite picks from my swag bag:
This blogging thing is paying off!
