Our featured blogger this month will be Lisa Corriveau from Spokemama who will share about her blog and what lessons she has learned from blogging. Leeann Froese from Town Hall will be sharing How to build your Media Kit - an essential if you are a blogger wanting to work with PR companies and get sponsored posts and advertisers. Plus, Victoria Clements will be singing some Christmas songs to get us into the holiday mood!

This event will have light snacks, door prizes, and some awesome swag for all of our bloggers to take home! We'll also have Justin Ruscheinski as Santa there taking pictures so feel free to bring your kids and please bring a donation for the Salvation Army. We'll also be collecting clothes, scarfs, jackets, and warm socks to give to the homeless this Christmas.

      I used to work as a hair stylist for Suki's 1982-1990. Does that count. I also sell edible collagen, which makes your wrinkles disappear and I would love to tell that story to your readers!

    That was great! Some of the information is things I already do (which makes me feel like I'm on track), things I've gotten lazy about (that has to change) and things I've never thought of (which excites me!) Thank you to the panelists and speakers for sharing
