Portland Bloggers and Coffee
Portland is well known for its amazing coffee. This made World Cup Coffee and Tea the perfect place for the Portland Bloggers to meet up to discuss our blogging New Years Resolutions. Once again, it was so fun to get together with the ladies (and one guy this time!!!) to talk about our blogs and share our experiences in the crazy world of blogging. It's so fun to see how this little blog has created some amazing real life friendships that never would have been formed otherwise.
Jenni from A Well Crafted Party and Suzannah from Adventures in Dressmaking did such an amazing job organizing the event and made adorable blogging goal journals. They are incredible creative ladies! Kayla from Fit Life Forward and Bee from The Spicy Bee had great talks on how to make attainable goals and get them done. Thanks so much girls! It's so great seeing how women with such different passions (a party blog, a sewing blog, a fitness blog, and a food blog) can come together and make an amazing event happen. You ladies rock!
It was so fun hearing what different people with different sized blogs wanted to do to improve their blogs in the new year. The list ranged from taking a photography class to growing readership to learning how to take better advantage of other social media to promote their blogs. My goal for the year is to learn more of the behind the scene stuff that goes along with blogging. Hopefully the look of my blog will slowly be changing as I learn how to customize some aspects.
If any of you live in or around Portland we'd love to have you come to the next meetup. Head on over to the Portland Blogger's Blog to get the info on when and where the next one will be.
