5 Cool Ideas from ALT SLC Summer ’14 #altsummit


The ALT conference just ended and it will take a few days for me to sort business cards and photos and thoughts BUT I wanted to get these ideas out before I forgot them. This conference is two straight days of pure creative energy and ultimately I can never remember whose idea was what so I apologize for not tagging the people who came up with the brilliance below. Just know that I think you’re a genius!

PS – Some of these are blog focused, but most of this stuff is pretty applicable to life in general!

1 /// Don’t be a passive consumer of media that you enjoy. If you would be sad to see it fade away, you need to take an active role in keeping it around (by sharing, commenting, etc.). It’s easy to just flip through the Internet quickly, but it’s all real people behind the scenes and they need to feel the love.

2 /// It makes sense to master the really small details in your life, regardless of what your ultimate goals are. Creating beautiful spaces at home, learning which foods make you feel the best, finding the personal style that energizes you…all of those details prime you to succeed on a day to day basis.

3 /// Blogger home swapping! We’re from all over and most of us find travel inspiring. We need to start taking turns exploring each other’s hometowns!

4 /// Glitter macarons. I didn’t even get to try one, but now I’m a little obsessed with finding them.

5 /// ALT alumni meetups in Salt Lake City. We always say we’re going to get together between conferences. We’re making this happen!

    I didn’t hear the first three insights you shared. If you ever want to come out to SF, with or without kids, I’d love to host you. (I’d have to look into how to clear our house of cat hair first because I’d hate to set off Eva’s asthma.) I wish our paths had crossed a little more this conference (thoroughly enjoyed hanging out in January), but really appreciated the wisdom you shared with me in our brief exchange.

      Oh, I’m planning on making an epic blogger trip out to SF as soon as this fall because almost half the people I chatted with at Alt are out there and good times must be had! You should pop out to San Jose for BlogHer next month and we’ll play!

        I may need to figure out how to make BlogHer happen. It’s not in the budget but another opportunity to hang out with you, I may just need to do it.
