I’ve been sitting on a bit of news! Last week, I was selected to be on a special panel at The Niche Mommy Conference currently taking place in New Orleans. The panel is called Moms Matter in 2012: Discussing the 2012 Election. As someone who does discuss politics from time to time on my social networks (and as a fangirl of Michelle Obama, which has been showcased many times on my blog), I felt that I had a lot of lend in this area.
I will be a panelist with several other moms, some who discuss politics on their websites and others who shy away from it. The goal of our session is to bring attention to the next election and the importance of our voices as a collective unit expressing our needs, no matter what political side we happen to be on. The session is being moderated by Lindsay Ferrier and Cafe Mom, which will be recording video of the session for their website.
Political affiliation and the presidential election can be sticky topic to discuss on any platform, and I know a lot of my colleagues don’t like to blog about the current political climate. This will be a dynamic and interesting session discussing all sides, and I feel very proud be a part of it.
The panel will take place on Saturday, and I am hoping I will be able to bring you pictures and tid-bits from the discussion, and furnish you with a link to the video when it is live!
