Thoughts From CPAC Day 1

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Let me start by saying that I look forward to CPAC every year. This is my sixth year of going, and I always have a great time. There are great people in the conservative movement, there are great speeches, and other great events. But the great thing about CPAC is not the politician’s speeches, but the ability to meet and network with so many great people from across the country. I love being able to meet and talk with folks from all over about what is important to them.

After CPAC ends for the evening, the fun continues at the great parties. I was able to finally meet some of my blogger friends; it is always great to put a face to a name or twitter handle. Tonight I was fortunate to attend the IJ Review party and then Blog Bash. I got some great tips from fellow bloggers that I will be sure to incorporate.

Well that’s all for tonight, Day 2 of CPAC starts awfully early. Keep on fighting the good fight!
