California Here We Come!
We are so excited to tell you that Mid-Atlantic Mom’s, Kristi and Rachel, will be attending the first-ever Geekly Retreat this November in California. What!? That’s right! California here we come!
What Is The Geekly Retreat?
In short, The Geekly Retreat is an invite-only event being put on by the super amazing and talented women of The Geekly Show. (Tessa, Tania, Amanda, Amiyrah, and Sarah.) It will include sessions with established entertainment writers, agencies, and brands. We cannot tell you how excited we are to be invited. There were only 15 spots available for this retreat and Kristi and I were selected for 2 of them. We will be flying to California in early November to learning from the best in the entertainment industry. Kristi and I really hope you will follow along with us during our adventure both on our personal pages, the Mid-Atlantic Mom’s page, and via the hashtag #thegeeklyretreat. You can read a little about our blogging journeys below as well as find links to our social media!
Rachel – Pretty in Baby Food
I started blogging around 3 years ago. As a new mom, I needed a creative outlet, and I also wanted to help other parents who were just like me. It may surprise you but I started out writing about cloth diapers. Haha! As my blog grew, and I grew as a blogger, I branched out into more topics such as lifestyle, travel, and entertainment.
Through the years my blog has expanded and now I am apart of the Mid-Atlantic Mom’s and also an entertainment writer for Geek For E. My goal as a writer is still to help parents whether that be through travel and movie reviews or just talking about life. One day I hope to be invited to a Disney Social Media Moms On-The-Road Celebration as Kristi has and to continue to work with amazing brands as I have been. I am so humbled and excited about this Geekly Retreat opportunity, and I hope you will follow along with me over on my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
Kristi – Running on Pixie Dust
“My blogging journey began almost 6 years ago (can that possibly be right?!?) and I never thought it would take me this far. I began sharing as Adventures of a Disney Loving Mom in 2014 where I really created this space as purely a spot to share Disney vacation planning information and reviews of hotels, restaurants, and attractions at Disney Parks locations. The first big boost for my blog was in 2015 when I was invited to a Disney Social Media Moms On-The-Road Celebration in New York City. It was here that I heard from social media experts and met with a number of like-minded men and women who helped me see a bigger future for myself.
I decided to re-brand my blog as Running on Pixie Dust as my content began expanding to more than just Disney vacations which has brought me to where I am today – sharing all of my favorite details related to family, travel, fitness, and Disney! Of course, entertainment content is a part of what I share and I look forward to learning more at this retreat to grow that area of my coverage even more!” Make sure to follow along with Kristi on her blog, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
