Next week I will be packing up my stuff and heading to the Influence Conference with 300 other bloggers, but in the meantime here’s a quick online introduction!
A Little About Me
I’m Kristen, a Spunky Southern girl and a native Nashvillian. I’m a single mama to the sweetest 15-month-old bumbling baby boy I lovingly call “Baby J.” I’m walking out of the hardest few years of my life after the crumbling of my marriage and a hard divorce. But right now, I’m in an amazing season of watching God REDEEM hard, messy things.
I’m what I like to call a multi-passionate creative entrepreneur! By day I’m the Digital Publicist at B&H Publishing and I absolutely love it. I get to oversee the social media and email marketing for our amazing books that we publish by some of your favorite authors like Angie Smith, Priscilla Shirer, Beth Moore and Candace Cameron Bure. I get to manage Selma Wilson’s blog, our awesome President. But the part that YOU will want to know about is I manage our BH Bloggers program. More about that below…
I also blog here on Graciously Authentic about faith, motherhood/co-parenting, technology and more! I’m the Co-Founder of Graciously Authentic Media, a Rodan+Fields skincare consultant and a photographer. I love all of my passions and they all (somehow!) mesh together in my head well!
I started blogging years ago, then I kept writing because it helped me journey through a really hard time, and now I’m in a new season of analyzing. I love writing, but now my motives are different. I’m excited to hear from the incredible speakers and know I’ll get some wisdom about what my next steps should be.
What am are you most excited about?
I’m most excited about manning the B&H Publishing booth and getting to meet all of YOU! I’ve been a member of the Influence network’s forums for a while now and cannot WAIT to get to hug all of you in person (I’m TOTALLY a hugger!!) and share about how through the BH Bloggers program you can get books for your blog to review and giveaway. (So awesome, right??)
I’m coming by myself and other than a couple of friends, I don’t know ANYONE. So don’t be a stranger – reach out. I absolutely love meeting new friends!
I love that as part of the conference they have included a time on Saturday for meetups with other bloggers from your area. I have organized an event for any Nashville/Middle TN area bloggers OR anyone who’s from an area that doesn’t have an organized meetup. Come join us!!
What wouldn’t you leave home without?
I wouldn’t leave home without my iPad with its keyboard. It’s so easy to bring around with me and I type so much faster than I write out in my notebook. But I sure do love my moleskine notebook too!
I also won’t leave home without my miracle-working eye cream. Traveling always takes a toll on you, and after that late night black + white party, I’ll need it!
