“The first rule of Blog Club is, tell EVERYONE about Blog Club!” I remember when Bonjour Blogger mistress Hayley, first mentioned the prospect of a Blog Club. It’s something I’d had in the back of my mind since reading about the launch of The Apartment at LFW a few seasons ago.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if, once a month, you could hangout with like-minded souls who understand the frustration of learning HTML, who could help you photograph an outfit without the need for direction, and who would understand the need for punctuating an entire series of the Great British Bake Off with tweets and hashtags.
Bonjour Blogger has been helping bloggers weave their way through deciphering advertising rates, highlighting the best blogger apps and honing content ideas since its launch last year, and I’m excited to say earlier this month they took it to the next level with the launch of Blog Club, in conjunction with VAN.
Held in VAN’s HQ on Kings Street, Blog Club’s launch was celebrated with a plethora of homemade cupcakes, chocolate macaroons, fruit and sweets, laid out on a long workbench, surrounded by laptops, notepads and DSLRs. We (Laura, Josephine, Lily, Victoria and Jo and VAN’s Sammy, Sophie and Chrissy) sat around the bench eagerly chatting about our own blogs while discussing what we’d all like to get from regular Blog Club events. Hint – it’s really, really exciting!
Getting to chat to bloggers IRL and share a bit of blog love, as well as our own blogging tips and tricks, was the perfect way to spend an afternoon – here’s to the next one!
