I had the pleasure of attending the Alt Design Summit in snowy Salt Lake City last weekend. The conference aimed at creative ways design bloggers could improve upon their blog, increase readership, and how one could actually make money doing this. This was a bigger deal for my wife, as she has recently ventured out on her own running her blog & stationery shop full time. I had made up my mind from the onset to treat the trip more as a vacation than a work conference. This ended up being the right mindset for me, because if I had taken everything too seriously I’d have been in poor shape.
