How many of you have attended a blogger convention or a meetup? How amazing does it feel to meet other people who understand the trials and tribulations of all things internet related - pretty amazing to be honest. In fact after attending a few blogger conventions and meetups I met some pretty incredible ladies that I have been able to lean on time and time again. Whether for support, solid advice or simply to take a few #ootd snaps - my growing group of blogger besties has been a stellar experience. Which is why I encourage all of you, whether you blog or not, to get out there and sign up for a few meetups or conventions (if you can afford it) or even host your own blogger brunch and meet the other girls in your nabe.
In fact, this weekend I've organized a brunch for a few blogger friends I've been meaning to know on more intimate terms and am super excited for it. Creating your own network of bloggers has it benefits since everyone is always good at something and not to mention the support system you'll be able to build among your peers.
Think there's no one else in your neighborhood/county that blogs? Think again... Coming from the advertising side of things; there might be a smaller number of bloggers in certain areas but the market is saturated with blogs across the country. Trust, I've done a lot of research for blogger events and for towns in which you'd think blogging is obsolete but in turn have been surprised to find amazing bloggers instead. Which means, the likelihood of you meeting like-minded souls is high!
So, if there's anything you can take away from this post it's that networking with other bloggers is a good thing. You can find your support group and they can lift you up and give you some solid advice, have an exchange of ideas and vice versa.
A few places I tend to meet other amazing bloggers at:
IFB Conferences + Seminars
PR & Shopping Events
Also, don't rule out emailing other bloggers in your town for drinks!!
