I’ve been planning blogger meetups in Vancouver for a couple of years now. One of my biggest dreams was to be able to organize a blogger-related conference, and this year that dream has finally come true! This fall, together with my fellow bloggers and good friends Jordana and Angela, we’ve put together a half-day mini conference for beauty and fashion bloggers based in Vancouver – Blog and the (Van)City. Our vision is simple – to bring together local bloggers and share experiences and tips on blogging, including how to grow audience and readership, how to start and maintain networks with companies and PR professionals, and anything else related to blogging. This year, the theme is non-professional bloggers. There are tons of smart, passionate non-professional bloggers in Vancouver who blog in addition to working or studying full time, and we feel that these bloggers work extra hard to be able to juggle both priorities. Beauty and fashion bloggers alike must take time out of their busy schedules to take photos, test and review products, which isn’t easy. The event will take place on Saturday, September 14th at 1:30PM at Metropolis at Metrotown. At the event, you will be able to network one-on-one with companies and PR professionals in an intimate environment. In addition, you will be able to ask all of your blogger-related questions to experienced bloggers and learn their tips on how to grow your audience. To register for Blog and the (Van)City, please visit here. Tickets are $10 and is to cover the cost of food and drinks at the event. Please register early as we are limiting the number of spots in order to create an intimate environment. If you’re not yet convinced, here are some more reasons why you should attend Blog and the (Van)City:
- Be able to speak to and learn from other bloggers
- Meet with company and PR representatives in a closely knit environment
- Ask all the questions you want with regards to blogging and people are open to sharing their tips with you
- Most beauty/fashion-related events take place in Toronto; Vancouverites want to have some fun too!
- The awesome-sauce goody bags that you will be getting
- Potentially meeting life-long friends, like what happened with me!
