Our third Y’all Connect is a success, not thanks to one person but to a giant community.
Our volunteer coordinator Rebecca Dobrinski takes time out of her super busy schedule to keep this event running smoothly. Her team of volunteers is second to none. Be sure to thank them before you go.
Our sponsors are loyal and generous, and we could ask for none better: John O. Hudson III, Ike Pigott, Jennifer Greene Rhodes and Houston Smith at Alabama Power; Lorrie Greer at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama; Lain Shakespeare at MailChimp; and Audrey Atkins at WBHM 90.3 FM.
Special thanks to Cal Morris at Church Street Coffee and Books.
Kudos and applause for our wonderful speakers Laura, Kary, Stacey, Kerry, David G., Shaun, Wendy, Ike, Taylor and David W.
We owe a debt of gratitude to our friends in the media for their snappy coverage of our humble affair. Thanks to ABC 33/40, al.com/the Huntsville Times, the Birmingham Business Journal, Mommy Blog Expert and Social Media Examiner. Thanks to all the professional organizations and user groups who shared our conference with their members.
These bloggers went way beyond the call of duty in helping spread the word: Javacia Harris Bowser of See Jane Write; C.A. Marks, Kathryn C. Lang and Libby Webb of Rocket City Bloggers; Molly Moon, Beth Branch and Meredith Davis of Birmingham Bloggers; and Sheree Martin of the Birmingham Shines podcast. Honorable mention to our friend Rachel Callahan of Alabama Bloggers, who we hope to see next year, if not sooner.
And finally, thank you to all of our guests! We are humbled by your awesomeness.
