I never expected to be a “woman in tech” when I sat down with my toddler on my lap in 2013 and bought the BLUNTmoms domain.   I had no idea what I “didn’t know” (and there was a lot of it” but I blindly went ahead and created this platform.

I was never a technology sort of person, I had no idea how to build a website, I was a terrible editor, but I had an idea that I thought people would like.  It was just my good fortune that the BLUNTmoms team found me, and together we have created a community of writers sharing stories for almost 10 years.

Technology, internet marketing, content creation; all of it has developed and evolved so much in the decade we have been here and it has been through countless hours spent learning that our team has grown too.

Our kids are now entering  High school and University, no longer babies on our laps, and our grey hairs have gotten bolder and harder to hide (not that we would) and we like to think that we have gotten smarter through the years as well.

From in person conferences (where we tended to dance more than learn some times), meeting new writers and seeing them achieve success, to all of us growing into our skills and passions, it has been a journey, and we aren’t done yet.

There is still time for us to learn more, and still loads of time for all of you to join us-  if you want to learn a little more about how to run a business online, or understand a few more things about the tech and content industry?  Join us at the Make it Big conference in September- Online, and FREE to attend and did we say “ONLINE”  Which means you can keep your jammie bottoms on, and have endless cups of coffee without judgment.

The speakers are the “thought leaders” of NOW.  There are sessions on how to sell on Tiktok, guided sessions on hot ecommerce topics like Crypto, NFTs, Metaverse, Reaching Gen Z and everything geared to the goal of “don’t just keep up, Get ahead”

In business we have a choice…  we can watch what others are doing and replicate it, or we can be there, in the room, having the conversations that start to create new ideas, and new ways to be online….   We can join communities, or create them. We can change our direction… sometimes we just need a chance to explore a new path!

Register today and join us at the FREE AND ONLINE Make it Big Conference SEPT 13/14 and maybe we will see you around the inter web in the future!
