We live in a melting pot of a world, and because of that it can at times feel like no one in your given zip code understands what the hell you’re talking about or who you are. People come and go and there are endless views and to do's that at times it can feel like a whirlwind. A big part of who I am revolves around this little gem of a blog you're reading right now. ;-) But sometimes its hard to meet people "IRL" who are also into the blogging community. Hell, sometimes it's hard to meet people that are dedicated to living with passion!

The League of Awesomeness – AKA: First Ever Coastal Blogger Round-Up!

We live in a melting pot of a world, and because of that it can at times feel like no one in your given zip code understands what the hell you’re talking about or who you are. People come and go and there are endless views and to do’s that at times it can feel like a whirlwind.

A big part of who I am revolves around this little gem of a blog you’re reading right now. 😉 But sometimes its hard to meet people “IRL” who are also into the blogging community. Hell, sometimes it’s hard to meet people that are dedicated to living with passion!

Blogging? …What’s an RSS? “Twitter?  …What the hell is Tweet? Location independence? …You mean you live in your car? Traveling? …Never got into it.  Entrepreneurship? …Too difficult. The lifestyle design of a Digital Nomad? …As in you stray from technology?”

Six months ago I packed up my things in my apartment that had a view of the Empire State Building and sat beside a city of millions and headed to a small beach town of thousands so I could live two blocks from the edge of the Atlantic. And while my location independence was able to bring me here, it has also made it a bit more difficult to spend time with follow bloggers, internet entrepreneurs, travelers, etc …with like-minded people in our “industry”, if you will.

THE COASTAL BLOGGER ROUNDUP!!!!

And so that’s why myself and the man with the plan Sal Greco over at Surfer Lifestyle Design have decided to take matters into our own hands and organize the first ever Coastal Bloggers Round-Up! – A Beach Master-Mind Event. I am so pumped!!! (PS – Are you in the area?! If you are, keep reading for more info!!!)

WHY THIS MEANS SO MUCH TO ME

I have to say that is especially important to me because as you may have read in my last post Your 85 Year-Old Smile Lines I’ve been making some pretty damn big changes lately. My life has been a whole lot of closing doors and opening new ones lately. This revolves around everything from my love life (wouldn’t you like to know! ;-P hehe), to a few upcoming websites I’ll be launching, to talks of doing a food & wine tour of Europe for a few months, to volunteering as a mentor for high school kids, to organizing a local TED talk event, to launching Wild World Creative, and a whole lot more.

This event represents a big part of my taking action to really grow as a blogger, entrepreneur, and savvy business women.  It’s an opportunity to build on relationships with fellow bloggers that are dedicated to living their lives in some amazing ways that revolve around their passions and talents. It’s going to be a weekend jam-packed with learning, sharing, and ridiculous amounts of fun.

CAN YOU COME?!?!?!

Hey, if you’re in the area you HAVE TO COME! It’s this weekend on the 5th & 6th of August and anyone in the area who is proud to be part of the community of blogging in general is welcome to come!!! If you are interested and want more info you can shoot me an email here!

A FEW THINGS US BLOGGING, TRAVELING, ENTREPRENEURS WILL BE DOING THIS WEEKEND:

You can check out the schedule right here on Sal’s Blog, but let me give you a heads up!

AUGUST 5th:

BLOGGERS ON THE BEACH” (8am – 2pm) : Creating the all time most badass beach posse ever – Beautiful Blogging Babes. We’ll be spending the day relaxing in the sun and waves while chatting about how awesome it is to be a blogger and how to be even better at it.

INTERNET MARKETING HAPPY HOUR” (4pm – 6:30pm) : Food + Drink + Bloggers = The Ultimate Cocktail of Goodness. This event will likely start out as a formal networking hour of sorts and then likely turn into a “Dude I love your blog let’s grab another beer!”.

NIGHT SHARK FISHING” (7pm – late) : Being that a lot of us bloggers are adventurists as well, we’ve planned a little adventure for the evening. Night Shark Fishing!

AUGUST 6th:

BLOGGER BREAKFAST” (10am – whenever) : We’ll start the day with some Banana Pancakes and then who knows!

PLAN A LOCAL BLOGGER MEETUP!

As I’m getting more and more excited for this event I keep thinking about just how important and inspiring it is to spend time with people that share your passions, interests, and goals. So, in the spirit of this upcoming weekend, this post’s Mad To Do Call To Action is to do the same in your town! It doesn’t need to be a big, huge, wedding-reception sized event or anything like that, but just something fun! Plan a TweetUp/MeetUp in your area and get to know some of your fellow bloggers that live in a few hour radius of you.

Start by simply putting out a Tweet asking if anyone is interested in doing it! From there, it’ll surely start to snowball. I mean, come on – I’m going shark fishing with fellow bloggers… how awesome is that! So, go plan something! 🙂

About Lauren Rains

Life gets pretty f*cking nuts sometimes, doesn't it? Every day I wake up more to myself and more to this world. This website is an expression of that.

Space Travelers is multi-layered exploration of our existence here on this rock we call Earth. We're going to talk about the matrix, UFOs, and astral travel, and explore our awakening into the divine masculine and feminine. We'll discover our bodies both the physical and subtle body. We'll contemplate the sacredness of mother earth and the concept of who/what the hell made this place in the first place?

I also aim to keep this website rooted and grounded, referring to topics that are effecting us in the here and now, such as fighting against the oppression of women worldwide, pealing away layers of social conditioning greedy capitalists are using to turn us into consumers, and navigating this insane technological revolution before the AI take over. I can geek out on consciousness up in space all day, but life happens here on the ground and this is the time we were born into.

This website is about integrating into our full human experience, aligning with ourselves and with each other, shedding skins and transcending into the unfolding layers of ourselves.

My wish for you, and for myself, is to unfold and evolve into our highest selves. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. We need not sell our souls to the status quo.

I'm on the journey too. I write this blog to speak to others who are waking up, or who desire to wake up. Because we can't do this alone.
