Bloggy Conference 2012 was an amazing opportunity to connect with other bloggers and learn more about all areas of blogging, from branding to social media and how to earn money on your site.

Here at the Cafe, part of telling this story is talking about special needs parenting, but a larger part of my work at the Cafe is making those special needs connections with all of you. Part of making those connections includes sharing information about the things that matter most to us, that move us, that inflame us, the defeat us, and sometimes, that wear us down.
Being real, being honest, being passionate here at Kat’s Cafe means that I get to share the ups and the downs with all of you guys, but I also (I hope!) get to make a difference as well.
One of my biggest challenges as I begin to build Kat’s Cafe and now Kat’s Media (my new business!) is that in our world, everything stops when a kid has a seizure, or a meltdown, or any of the million other kid-mergencies that we deal with every day.

Making it to Bloggy Con this year was a way for me to step out and step forward for myself, my blog, and my business. But I can’t leave those challenges behind. So what’s the answer to that?
I’m hoping some of you might have suggestions, but here I am going to list a few ways I am hoping to work around the challenges of this amazing life my family leads:
