NC Bloggers Take Asheville, for Type-A-Mom 2010!

Many people have arrived at this post searching for information about Gina Carlin, a blogger who was supposed to attend the conference.  I found out the day of the conference that she had passed away, but didn’t know if I should post about it.  I never met Gina, but we have a mutual friend, and she was loved.  I just couldn’t leave this post without acknowledging such a loss and asking for prayer for her family.  Here is a message from her friends, who were “sponsoring” her to the conference:

From Heather:

Donna and I had “sponsored” Gina Carlin to attend this conference, which she was so excited about. We are completely in shock, but wanted you to please be in prayer for her family… Gina died unexpectedly on Sept. 21, and even her closest friends know few details.
She was a blessing to everyone who knew her. We created a FB memorial page, to honor her and create a community which will help her very young children to remember the extraordinary woman their mother was.

I am (obviously) so excited to be on my way to Type-A-Mom today! Not only for the conference awesomeness, but to see several of my dear friends and hug their necks!

I’m also excited to see the social media scene in North Carolina “kick it up a notch!”  I’m making it my goal to meet as many of these NC Bloggers and Social Media Folks as possible! LOOK how many of them there are!!

If you are an NC Blogger, I would love to have you sign up for NC Blog Buzz Network!  We are a PR Network for NC bloggers, and we’ve done some really fun campaigns so far!

Here’s the list!  I’m going to follow them all now!

    Heather, I don’t know how I missed your comment, but thank you for sharing. People are arriving here from Google looking for information about Gina, so I moved your message up to the top.

    I heard from an Asheville friend that she had passed away, but wasn’t sure whether to share yet or not, so thanks for taking the lead on that. I’m definitely praying for her family and friends.
