Hi there, lovelies! How have you been? I'm finally back to regular work routines after an amazing weekend in London. Food Blogger Connect gathered together a big group of wonderful food bloggers this year. The weekend was full of great conversations, lectures and of course food. I was happy to stay at Sari's, a very talented photographer from Cooking Your Dream, with two other lovely ladies, Giulia from Juls Kitchen and Pamela from Cooking Ninja. We had a great time exploring London together!
We started the conference weekend with wine tasting and cocktail dinner on Friday night. Jaden Hair from Steamy Kitchen started the lecture series with an inspiring conversation about developing the brand of the blog, finding a niche and being the best at it. Friday night continued late after midnight with wine and lots of laughter. On Saturday, we focused on content production with lectures about writing and photographing. And of course, a Pimm's cocktail hour was a part of the program - we were in London after all!
Julia Parsons from A Slice of Cherry Pie gave great tips about getting your work published and working as a freelancer. These experienced bloggers in addition to many more lovely speakers and fellow bloggers made a weekend of new ideas and great community. It was truly inspiring to talk with people who are, just like I am, following their passion.
Here are the blogs of some of those blogger friends I met during the conference weekend. I think you'll enjoy them as much as I do.
