NC Blogger Buzz Conference

Last Friday I went to my first blogger meet-up/conference. I was so nervous. Whenever I'm around people I don't know, in an environment completely new to me, I become the most awkward person ever. Luckily after the first 30 minutes or so I was able to calm down and be a normal person again, but for someone who is normally an extrovert among their friends, put me in a new environment and its automatic introvert.

The meet-up was held at Bevello in downtown Raleigh. It's one of the cutest little boutiques I've ever been to! I was impressed at all the hard work that went into setting up the event, and all the amazing sponsors that provided an unforgettable evening for a bunch of local bloggers.

I left the meeting with the confidence and motivation that I needed to help kick start this blog to the next level. I really have some big and exciting things that I want to do with this blog over the next year or so, and I felt like I left the event with a large portion of the knowledge that I need to get me there! Also, a big thanks to Sara Logan Photography for capturing all the details of this evening! PS. Who knew that someone who has spent zero time in a sorority would be so great at doing the "sorority squat"? 

Hopefully with this blogging event under my belt, I'll be a lot more comfortable next Saturday at my next blogging event with the Southern Blog Society's NC chapter as part of their quarterly meet-up! I'm getting excited to meet even more fabulous local bloggers!


  1. I'm glad you were able to come. Wasn't it fun? Ashley and Angela did such a good job putting it all together! Hope to see you next time and I look forward to following your blog!

  2. I'm glad you had a great time!! and I'll be at the meet-up on Saturday too :)


  3. Looks like it was a great event. I'm the same way when it comes to meeting new people at first. But, after a few minutes I start to warm up :)

  5. This looks like so much fun! I totally understand what you mean - I would get so nervous and anxious going to blogger meetups :\ But for the most part it's a really sweet community! Great sorority squat, too ;)

  6. Wow, what a fabulous looking event. It is so wonderful to have blogger friends all around the world, but connecting with local bloggers in person is very special indeed!

  7. That does look pretty special. . . not sure we can top that. I hear you may be coming to our Blogging Concentrated event in Asheville next month. We'll provide you the best education on the planet. . . just not sure it will be nearly as cute as the one you just went to. I don't even need to guess. Those gals have style.

  8. That is so awesome! I live in NC and I wish I had heard about this conference. Bummer. Maybe next time!
