I go to a lot of conferences, networking events, meet ups and panels. I’ve been to at least one every week and I have more coming up. I also have organized and helped organize events before but I have to say the Blog Better Boston Conference I went to on Saturday was hands down one of the most well put together event I’ve been to in a while.
The event, which was held at the Cambridge Google Office, had over 130 bloggers attending with a lot of awesome sponsors. Some of the sponsors included Lace Affair, Gemvara, WorkBar, Laura Preshong Jewelry, Bluefly, Roster and so much more! The event went smoothly, all the speakers and the panels were so informative and fun. I still get a little nervous when I attend events alone (I do that very often) but everybody at the event were super friendly and I made some great blogger friends! There are so many awesome bloggers in the Boston area and I wouldn’t have gotten the chance to get to know them if it wasn’t for the event. Kudos to Alana and Amy who put this together! I’m looking forward to the April Meetup next week, which if you haven’t signed up for yet, there are still few spots left! :)
The picture above was when I attended the food photography workshop with @KTEIG and attempted at taking one myself after the class but failed miserably. Haha Apart from that, I also attended the photo editing workshop with @ulandayphoto, Social Media Platforms with @Kristinapp, @Laceybean, @WorldLillie and @LaurenSleeper, and a WordPress workshop with @kurteng.
Some tips I learned?
Overall, I met some wonderful people, learned a lot, ate all day and had a really good time :) Check out some of the bloggers I met at the conference:
