Parkin’ It in Hollywood

Why Going to #BlogHer16 Alone Worked in My Favor

When I heard #BlogHer16 would be held minutes down the road from me I was excited, but immediately shut down once I realized I would be heading there alone. I don’t mention this often in my blog, but I suffer greatly from social anxiety. I’m…
