Catholic New Media Conference, Part 1: Twitter Style #CNMC


I was so blessed that this year’s Catholic New Media Conference was held in Boston, my own backyard – although I splurged and stayed at the hotel, and even took a Duck Tour with the other VIP participants on Sunday.

The presenters were informative, eager to share their experiences and knowledge, and faithful followers of the Church – which translated into encouragement and inspiration for those blessed to be in attendance.


Here are some of my favorite #CNMC Tweets that will give you the “like I was there” feel:

It was the first time I didn’t feel guilty looking at (and using) my phone during a public event. It was actually expected and encouraged! #WICKEDAWESOME!

  1. Allison I’m so glad I got to enjoy the CNMC through this post and your shared tweets. I’m thrilled that you had such a great time. Next year, God willing, I want to definitely have a huge presence at the event, and your sharing of your terrific experience will encourage others to go, I’m sure. Also, who is the fourth blogger in your picture with my sisters??
