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:
“What if at Mass instead of being told to turn off your cell phones, we were told to post that you are at Mass on FB or Twitter? #CNMC”
“My initial reflections re: the amazing #CNMC 2013 in Boston - http://saskapriest.com/wordpress/2013/10/23/cnmc-boston/ …”

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!
