#BlissDom #DigitalSisterhood Moments

Conference booklet

What happens when hundreds of women bloggers spend a weekend at the BlissDom Conference held in February at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee?  Digital Sisterhood in real life (IRL)!

So what is digital sisterhood IRL at BlissDom? I am sure its many things to many people, but here’s what I witnessed.

Digital sisterhood IRL at BlissDom 2012 was women bloggers

  • Connecting, collaborating, inspiring, learning, sharing expertise and experiences, growing together as they build community.
  • Celebrating each other.
  • Supporting social good causes they believe in.
  • Networking with each other and sponsors.
  • Developing their entrepreneurial and writing skills.
  • Shopping for books and handmade goods created by fellow women bloggers.
  • Taking tons of photos and recording videos.
  • Tweeting and texting from their smartphones.
  • Smiling, hugging, laughing, and crying.
  • Eating great food.
  • Singing, dancing, and listening to music.
  • Wearing sparkles and expressing their authentic selves!

Check out photos of some of my favorite digital sisterhood moments below.  If you are like me, you probably want to see more photos.  So visit the BlissDom Flickr photo group here.

#DSFierceLiving is coming to #BLISSDOM12 on February 24@2:30 pm

Great News!  Digital Sisterhood Network (DSN) founder Ananda Leeke is headed to BLISSDOM to speak about #DSFierceLiving (DSN’s 2012 theme) during her writing session, “Fierce Living from Your Creative Heart”  on February 24 from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm.  See the description below.


Calling all creative women!  You know who you are Ms. Artist, Collage Maker, Crafter, Dancer, Dramatic Performer, Musician, Painter, Photographer, Poet, Sculptor, and Ms. Writer.  When’s the last time you allowed yourself the space to dream, imagine, and create something that inspired a deep feeling of peace, play, and fulfillment?  Wait no more. During this session, you will have an opportunity to explore your inner women (also known as archetypes or personalities) and the role they play in your creativity through mindful writing exercises and discussion.  The takeaways include ways to tap into your inner women’s intuition, imagination, and nurturing energy as “fierce living” growth opportunities for 2012 and beyond.

FYI — Join #DSFierce Living Conversations on #DigitalSisterhood Wednesdays

“Fierce Living” is the DSN’s 2012 theme.  DSN founder Ananda Leeke defines Fierce Living as,

“the mindful practice of unplugging, understanding, and unifying who I am online and offline from the inside out so I am able to express myself fully in my healthy living journey, Digital Sisterhood book writing, art, and work as a coach, digital media producer, yoga teacher, and innerpreneur.”

DSN recognizes that Fierce Living means different things to different people. That’s why we are hosting #DSFierceLiving conversations on Facebook, Pinterest, Survey Monkey, and Twitter on #DigitalSisterhood Wednesdays in 2012.
