Boca Raton Train Museum Holiday Photo Shoot

My favorite part about the holiday season is getting all of the fabulous photo cards in the mail from our family and friends! We literally cover an entire door in our family room with all of the cards we receive and leave them up through January…maybe even February. 😉 Last year, we ordered gorgeous foil stamped holiday cards from minted. This year, I decided I wanted to create less waste (sans envelopes) and send out holiday postcards. So, I went ahead and scheduled an October shoot with Sweet Memories Photography so I could get them out right after Thanksgiving. Are you ready to see the photos from our 2018 Boca Raton Train Museum holiday photo shoot?

Are Blog Retreats & Conferences Worth It for a Hyperlocal Blogger?

I’m not made of money. I know– I’m sure it’s an absolute shocker coming from a fellow Boca Raton resident. Especially with our town’s stellar reputation for financial success… 😉 But as a small business owner and mom of one, money tends to walk out the door quickly these days. Even though I 100% believe in investing in myself and my business, I have to be rather choosy about what events and conferences I attend on behalf of Modern Boca Mom. After all, I’m “just” a hyperlocal blogger.

A hyperlocal blogger with Palm Beach style… 😉

If you’re not familiar with the blogging world (and I certainly don’t expect you to be), there are tons of blog conference options out there for you to learn, grow and connect with potential sponsors. If you’re a blogger with a large or growing national audience, it definitely makes sense to find a conference or two in your niche (parenting, lifestyle, health, design, the list goes on…) to become more visible in your industry and increase your bottom line.
