When we came up with this idea, we had no idea what to expect. And honestly, I thought we'd have maybe 5 - 7 people interested . . . Maybe we'll meet at a Starbucks. . or a park bench. . .
But I was wrong. And I had no idea how many bloggers lived in or around Raleigh.
We were stunned with the number of emails we received from interested bloggers. We so wish we could have made it a larger event (we hope to one day), but we needed to keep it manageable for our first one!
A few weeks before the event Carrie, Lauren and I got together to make little gifts for everyone coming to the meet up. We were so thrilled with the number of bloggers interested in coming and it was our way of thanking them for taking the time to come!
The night was filled with meet&greet and networking. Lauren, Carrie and I spent a few minutes introducing ourselves and explaining our blogs. But other than that, we left the conversation up to the women! It was a great opportunity to ask questions or just learn about what others bloggers write about.
Oh and everyone looked fantastic. Bloggers are pretty good looking, wouldn't you say?
We had so much fun and loved meeting all these great women! We are so excited to have another meet up! We will keep you posted on details as we figure them out!
Huge thanks to Benelux for letting us host such a fun night there!
