I had the pleasure of attending The Next Blogger Network Workshop this week and what a treat it was. It was hosted at the the very trendy Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch. I have never been in the hotel before but I will definitely pay it another visit, it is cooler than cool! All the bloggers arrived and were greeted with a delicious breakfast of pastries, fruit, tea and coffee. During this time I had the pleasure of meeting our lovely host Gemma Glover ( from Jam, who helped to organise the event. Along with lots of other great bloggers who were attending.

After breakfast we split into groups and we each started our first session of the three we would be attending throughout the day (see below). Lunch was served after session one.. oh my! There was enough food to feed an army. I had my polaroid picture taken with Elle ( Definitely check out her blog for all you need to know about health and fitness. We all grabbed ourselves a bag of retro sweets and promptly headed to session 2. This was followed by afternoon tea and a chance to catch up with same great people we had met throughout the day. Sadly I had to leave before session 3 started as I had other commitments :-(. I’d had a brilliant day so far and left the venue on a high. I couldn’t wait to get started and put what I have learnt into practise! I hope you guys can notice some changes on my blog coming soon.

Session 1. SEO & Web Design
This was a very insightful session for new and old bloggers alike. Faye Marie ( talked about do’s and don’ts for web design and her top tips to success. Faye is completly self taught and now works professionally as a web deigner.. she certainly knows her stuff.

Session 2. Brand & Advertising
This session was hosted by Abi Marvel ( and Emily Johnstone ( what an inspiring pair. They have taken their blogs to another level and are now out there conquering the world.. quite literally. I could of sat and listen to their stories all day. What better people to give their help and advise on how to step up your blog. Just brilliant!

Session 3. Photography & Film
I am hoping my new found blogger friends will be able to fill me in on what I missed.

Oh and I forgot to mention (how could I) The Next Blogger Network goodie bags that were handed out as we arrived. I can’t wait to try out my angora socks and scented candle, they are just what the doctor ordered in this gloomy and cold weather.

Thank you Next and everybody that helped to organise the event. It was a great success and I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for an invite next year.

Happy Friday everyone xxxx
