Day 1 - Colorado Family History Expo

Day One at the Colorado Family History Expo in Loveland, Colorado began for me with registration as speaker and Blogger of Honor - and receiving lots of gifts and goodie bags!  Thanks to Holly Hansen, Christine Sharbough and the rest of the crew at Family History Expos for taking care of me and the rest of the bloggers.

My first class - Facebook for Genealogists - wasn't until 10:00 am which gave me a moment to set up at the Blogger's Lounge in the Exhibit Hall.  While there, I was able to meet some wonderful bloggers for the first time: Becky Jamison - Grace and Glory, Gayle Gresham - Colorado Reflections, and Terri Kallio - The Ties That Bind. It is amazing that I've know most of them for close to two years and it has taken this long to meet in person!

After my class - which went very well - I hung out again at the Blogger's Lounge for a bit before coming up to the room for a little lunch and hopefully a nap!

Later today I have my Twitter class - Twitter: It’s Not Just “What I Had for Breakfast” Anymore - and then it is Movie Night when the movie Forgotten Ellis Island will be shown and we'll be treated to snacks and root beer floats.

I'll have another report tomorrow!
