You might have noticed that little button over in my sidebar that says I’m Going to the BlogHer 2010 conference. (yay!) I posted about how I won the opportunity to attend the conference for free provided I volunteer for BlogHer (double yay!). And I am so beyond excited about going that I have been thinking of every way I could get there. I still need to cover travel/lodging expenses and I don’t want it to cause any stress on my family or our budget, so I am trying to get creative.
I am actively seeking Sponsors for the conference and came across a contest hosted by the blog Hip As I Wanna Be and Seed! This post is an entry into that contest.
Seed is a natural products company that uses sustainable processes to create soaps and lotion from grape seeds! This is a business that is getting it right. While I am not writing a review of the company, I have to say that just in poking around their site, I really like what I see! The shampoo bar looks awesome and ever since having Oscar, I am on serious chemical patrol. Their philosophy is even better.
Everything begins with a seed.
Basically, we can’t do it all, but we can do our part. That idea is SO resonating with me right now. As a wife and mother, I just want to do it all. And on top of that, I would like to be thin and pretty and popular and also have a really successful blog, thank you very much. I mean really? Who needs that kind of pressure?!? What I need to do is my part and do it well. And that’s what a seed does. It does its own little share. That seed doesn’t know that one day it will be a beautiful grapevine. It just knows it is supposed to go down into the ground and absorb all the health the earth can give. Then it splits open and goes forth. The outcome is an amazing fruit!
One of the reasons I love BlogHer and all these businesses and blogs, is that it reminds me that everyone is getting there, one idea at a time. We all have our role to play in business, family, relationships, parenting….the list goes on. I would love to partner with Seed at BlogHer this year. Not only because they are offering a sponsorship, but also because they represent small beginnings.
And we all have to start somewhere.
