Yesterday was a very full day for me – a ton of shows, a LOT of inventory sorting, and a blogger meet-n-greet.
I almost forgot about the meeting but lucky for me, the fantastic hosts sent out a reminder!
The meet-n-greet was hosted by Monica Querrien and Ember Adored.
The first part of the meeting was an ice-breaker, with everyone introducing themselves, saying why they blog, and why they came to the meeting.
I think the general consensus was that we all came to the meeting to meet other bloggers 😀 and to hopefully learn something from each other.
It was interesting to see all the diverse people who blog.
We shared blog & Flickr links, so I think we all gained a few followers. 😛
The meeting was scheduled for two hours.
By the time everyone got done introducing themselves and sharing, over an hour of the time had been eaten up.
Some people might find that tedious, but it was interesting to see the variety of blogs and styles.
After all the introductions were complete, the discussion portion began.
Lots of ‘do’s and dont’s’ for blogging were discussed, though we didn’t have time to get into great detail.
I’m not a fashion blogger, so I am interested to see how other bloggers do things.
For instance, my LOTD posts are primarily a creative outlet for me, not necessarily a way to showcase the latest fashions on the grid.
I have discovered that I don’t have the time or energy (or the budget) to go dashing around to every event on the grid so that I can show off the newest shiny.
I don’t link every item from my LOTD, though I do credit them all (including poses).
However, I love reading the posts of others and finding some great items when I do. 😀
There are plans for future meet-n-greets, so if you couldn’t make it to this one, don’t worry.
I know that the time of the meeting was an issue for some; I’m hoping that future meetings will also have various times, so more people can attend.
A huge thank-you to Moni and Ember for hosting this!
