Megan of Greetings from Texas
put on the whole thing – with some help from her friends and family. She is just as hilarious in person as she is on her blog.
On Friday night I attended the Kick Off Party at Langford Market
. Unfortunately my camera was out of commission for the weekend. 🙁
BUT at least I had my phone….
I may or may not have done some shopping.
A lovely Langford employee helped me style up a couple outfits.
Also? It was raining on and off all weekend. Can you tell?
Saturday morning was lovely. We all met for breakfast and panels at Hotel Zaza.
The blogger panel was up first. Megan asked great questions! And these ladies offered some excellent advice.
The sponsor panelists were also full of helpful information regarding what their businesses look for in a blog.
I took avid notes throughout and can’t wait to apply these things to my own blog and brand.
The bits that especially stood out to me were discussions about balancing blogger life with real life.
Don’t live your life behind a lens. – Kelly Garcia
Everyone who attended the Symposium received a couple swag bags.
How sweet and amazing is that??
Along with a variety of coupons, here are a few of the lovely goodies inside.
[also?? everyone received a couple articles of clothing!]
Every once in a while you need a little motivation in bloggyblog land, and this was perfect!
If you have the chance, I highly recommend you attend a blogger event in your city. 🙂
