As many of you may know, last month was the ACFW Annual Writer’s Conference. Once again, I couldn’t attend, so I once again hosted an online at-home conference for people like me. Previously I hosted in on a private, Midwest loop for ACFW members, but this year I decided to open it up to everyone.
To put it mildly – WOW!
The response was HUGE, and it overloaded my private blog. Less than a week before we were scheduled to start I had to choose – tell people they couldn’t attend, or find a new site. Since I was also working full time and writing part time, I didn’t have the time to do the research. I put out a desperate call, and found my hero.
Tiffany Colter, the Writing Career Coach, not only let us use her site (for free!), she also did all of the maintenance on her site so I wouldn’t have to worry about it. We had some bugs, but because of her generosity and help, the conference went on.

My other behind-the-scenes gal is my sister and blog manager, Camille Gabel, owner of Growing Up Gabel. A SAHM with two very active young children, she started homeschooling this year, cooks everything from scratch, and does some pretty awesome blogging (for me and herself).
I want to take time today to thank them again and let them know what an immense blessing they were to me and the attendees of the at-home conference. Please stop by their sites and get to know their work – you won’t regret it!
