Last Sunday saw well over a hundred bloggers descend on Manchester Museum of Science and Industry right in the heart of Manchester, I was lucky enough to be one of them. We had come from all over the country to catch up with each other, meet brands, learn and share ideas all around the wonderful world of blogging.
I took a break from blogging last year after my father became seriously ill, and Blog On MSI was exactly what I needed to get myself back into blogging and feeling inspired again. It was so good to catch up with blogging friends like Tracey and to introduce Jon from JonThePhotographyBaker to the wonderful world of BlogOn.
It was lovely to speak to brands who recognise bloggers and are willing to work with them, and actively seek them out. I really enjoyed chatting to the folks from Esdevium Games, and the ladies from Swizzels and Get More Drinks. They have some really great products that I cannot wait to share with you. I really enjoyed the demo game Jon and I played from Esdevium…and my competitive side may have come out a little. I did win though.
The day was a huge hit, and a big thanks has to go to Laura, the MSI team and all of the brands and speakers that made it such a great event. I learnt so much from the Pinterest 101 and the SEO 101 classes – and I have so much more learning to do. There was a mix of speakers and something for everyone. My Pinterest notebook is already full of ideas for blog posts, collaborations and things to work on.
I came away from the event with so many ideas to share with you, and with lots of goodies from the goody bags to try out. I’ll be letting you know which products were my favourites and where you can get them from soon.
