Hello lovely ladies, sorry for the delay in posting but I'm so busy and exited after the first Meet the Blogger event in Amsterdam. I hope you understand. Let me tell you the story behind the first Meet the Blogger event. It all started in January when I posted about my dream here. We envisioned a room full of lovely blogger together sharing ideas from the online world offline. I shared the idea on my blog, Twitter and Facebook. And soon after that I contacted Holly from Decor8 to see if she would be interested to be one of the guest speakers for the event. Soon after that she came back to me that she would love to join the event and wanted to be one of the sponsors and be part of the event team too and Janneke joined us to work on the PR & Communciations for the event. We expected an inspiring event with let's say 25 attendees but when we started to announce the event we knew it could become bigger than that.
VT Wonen, Flavourites, Kelly Hoppen, Lily's Cupcakes, Hotel V and the American Book Center and thanks to their support this event was free of charge for all the attendees and we also had a lovely goodie bag in place. We had a lot of work in the last few weeks before the event but it outcome is fantastic. We had over 100 bloggers together in Hotel V to join our event and the reactions after the event put a smile on our faces! What an inspiration and energy in one room! I personally love the fact that a small idea can grow easily with the use of social media and the internet and it's great to see how we can support eachother to live our dreams in the online and offline world. Last but not least I would like to thank you all for your endless encouragement and support!!! You made my day!!!
