I'm so thrilled to have hosted my first blogger meet-up! This event was on my vision board for 2015, and I made it happen.
As I grow the Thirty Plus Mom Community my goal is to bring together women on a mission to inspire, encourage, and help each other reach our goals. What better way to do this than to host a meet-up?
We had the opportunity to get out of our normal routines, share the latest with our blogs and discuss new goals. And as a bonus we enjoyed trying on new fall fashion and even provided a Mini-Mom Makeover with the help of The Diva Inc's Editor in Chief, Crystal-Marie Mitchell.
Overall the meet-up was a success. Our location was chic, spacious, and welcoming. While this first meet-up was an intimate group of 3 I know in the future other bloggers will certainly join. The biggest challenge with events is finding a date that works for most.
What I learned from hosting my first blogger meet-up:
Collecting emails worked well.
Adding folks to my email list made updates and check-ins easy as 1-2-3. As the event grows Eventbrite will be my go to.
Focus more on photos
Multi-tasking isn't the best route so having an assigned colleague to take photos will help capture more of the event. Thank you Crystal-Marie for taking the reigns on the photography.
Connecting with likeminded people is a #winwin
The goal for this meet-up was simple. Connect. Inspire. Learn. Mission accomplished.
Looking forward to hosting a similar event in 2016. Interested? Want to sponsor or partner on an event, if so sign up for my email list and drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I promise to never SPAM.
