The Selfie: I am "THAT MOM"

I am pretty pumped that I have the opportunity to attend the 10th anniversary BlogHER conference in San Jose, California this week. What makes this even more exciting is that I get to attend with some other Farm/Ag Friends from across the country and meet some blogging pros. This is the blogging conference of all blogging conferences!  I have always wanted to attend but have never taken the time. When you are a mom to kids or pets when is a good time to get away? NEVER.

The conference is using the hashtag #selfiebration to share selfies of attenders. Embrace your #selfie because we are the people behind the blog

name and a part of an entire community. Anyone who blogs takes a risk to share what they are passionate about. We put a lot of information out to the public and this can bring both positives and negatives. Regardless, we keep on blogging and generating conversation with our readers.  I have yet to embrace the selfie (not sure I ever will) but I will give it my best shot. Brace yourselves, you may be seeing some Kristin selfies this week in honor of the big conference.

What I have learned before I even step foot on an airplane to attend this event is that I don't have many personal selfies. I looked back through my photo stream and I realized I am "that mom" who takes a billion photos of their kids and shares them with the world. In general I take lots of photos of everything. I have developed quite the photo archive over the past few years. 
Since I am "That Mom" I will share some of my favorites.

This is my kind of selfie.
I have no idea what in the world I was doing in this photo. I am hoping
it was Christmas time.

I also issued a warning to my readers that the selfies were coming! I used to not take them-- ever. But now I'm becoming THAT GIRL.
