Next week, I will be presenting my Blogging Your Way Through Grief at the Bereaved Parents of the USA 2015 National Gathering in Hartford, CT. I’ve presented similar presentations in Costa Mesa, CA and Boston, MA, for The Compassionate Friends, but this is my first time being part of the Bereaved Parents of the USA conference. I’m super excited!
Although my presentation is similar to years past, I feel that with each year, I learn a bit more about grief, and a bit more about myself. Now, I can speak from a bit more experience; my pain is not as sharp, my cuts are not as deep, and my heart is not as heavy.
I’m hoping for a great turn out, and can’t wait to meet everyone in attendance!
Look for me at Workshop Three!
Jacqueline will explain the benefits of writing to cope with grief, and demonstrate how to set up a blog and maintain it.
Attendees will take home the step-by-step guide and create their own free blogs at home, and use some of the suggested topics as inspiration for their own writing.
