Pre-World Tea Expo Prep
I am counting the days before boarding my flight to the World Tea Expo for now the second year in a row. Making sure not forget the important documents of course. This year is going to be a bit more challenging on my feet while pregnant but I am sure with the help of my husband and business partner I will make it through, not to mention the cups and cups of tea at hand.
Currently, I am working on a game plan. Making sure I know which booths I want to be sure I visit and write about. As many of you know my main focus is finding the most unique teas and accessories. I will leave the ordinary to my other blogger friends. Not that there is anything wrong with traditional teas, it just isn’t my niche.
My plan is to tweet a lot about the blogging side on my personal account @RachelKCarter so if you are not following me there yet you may want to for the latest updates. Business related mentions will be limited to @iHeartTeas unless the two coincide. I will also post numerous blogs here on @TeaTrade on my blog www.iHeartTeasTheBlog.com. With links that can be found on my personal Google+ account and my business account on Google+.
Please let me know if there is anything specific you would like for me to report for you. A comment here would be perfect and I will do my best to gather the information you are requesting.
It is going to be so much fun meeting old friends and new friends a like. Plus this year I will be wearing two hats as “Media” and a “Buyer” I promise not to intermingle and of course keep all opinions genuine and unbiased. I will also be participating the in the first ever “Tea Bloggers Roundtable” on Friday night as a panalist. It is a casual event where bloggers of any skill level are welcome to join us and ask questions about blogging about tea.
