  3. Hey Rhoda,
    I’m excited you took on this whole conference idea, what a way ro give back to your readers and others who want to learn more about DIY & blogging. For me, continuing to learn the technical aspects of photography, WordPress.org, which plug-ins are really necessary, & how to get more readers/commenters are some things I am interested in. What are the dates & when will you have a schedule of events up?
    Thank you!

  33. I so need this free ticket……..you see I’ve been writing a blog in my head for 25 years just didn’t know it actually had a name. I’m one of those over 50 gals who just isn’t up on the latest lingo. Didn’t know that what I’ve been doing for years and years should actually be written down for all to see and read. So what would I do if I won a free ticket…………….I would attend each and every session and soak up all the fabulous tips, dos and dont’s, etc. and I would get myself up and running. This over 50 gal has lots to say and still lots to do and share. Hope to see you there and thank you!!!!!!! Lynn

    I plan on attending Haven this year! Can’t wait to meet all of the folks that I feel like I already know! :-) I look forward to hearing John and Sherry as well as the other speakers.

  48. To meet you of course!

  49. I really want to go to Haven for so many reasons!! I am a new blogger and I still find it a little intimadating … my husband and I are going to be putting our house on the market at the end of summer and I would love a few pointers with that … I am really embracing the DIY attitude and I want to learn more … my baby just turned one and I feel like I have been hibernating for a year!!! :)

  50. Hi Rhoda! Thanks so much for this opportunity! I’m a new home owner, and newer blogger. I’ve never been to a blogging conference, and would love to go and just be a complete creative sponge that absorbs everything all these talented women have to offer! I have been planning on coming to this, and was about to buy the ticket but saw this great giveaway on Havens FB page and figured I’d try my luck first :) God Bless!

  51. I would so love to come and learn from you “biggies”. Attending the conference would be HUGE for me. It would make my year.

  52. I would love to have a free ticket to the “Haven”. I’ve been hoping to go since it’s in Atlanta but was sure about all the cost. After 4 years of blogging, it would be a really big treat to meet everyone.


  53. I’d love to go. Thanks so much.

  54. Having the opportunity to meet John and Sherry from Young House Love would be an awesome experience! I’ve been following their blog for years and they are so inspiring. I’d also love to attend the thrifting class with Mr. Goodwill Hunting!

    I work for a company in Atlanta who blogs for small businesses and manages their web presence, specifically home contractors, and going to this conference would be so inspiring for me and ultimately, for my clients! I’m hoping to attend the conference anyway, but a free ticket would definitely find me there and ready to soak up all the knowledge!

    Thanks so much for offering this giveaway!

  55. Honestly I am looking forward to ALL OF IT, this will be my first blogging conference. I’m a big ball of nervous and excited rolled all into one! The line up you all have is incredible!

  56. Hope it’s not too late to enter to win a ticket to Haven! I would absolutely LOVE to attend!

  57. Oh how much I want this! I am the proud mama of an independent little business and I am doing everything I can to take it to the next level. These ladies that are hosting/speaking are the exact ones that inspired me and gave me the confidence to actually start Sweet Vintage Decor. I admire them and would live nothing more than the chance to meet them and hear them speak! I can only imagine the loads of information and inspiration that will come from Haven. If I don’t get to go, I can’t lie, I’ll be sitting at home pouting and crying. With tears and everything. Jealousy will ensue and it won’t be pretty! 😉

  58. Oh I would so love to go and meet all my blogging icons and make new friends, what a fantastic giveaway!
