So yesterday was the first first Sheffield Bloggers Meet up. To be honest, I had been shitting myself. Why, oh why did I put myself out there for this? What if no one turned up? What if it was awful??
But I do believe in it, I think it is good to try and get Sheffield Bloggers together to talk, network, discuss ideas and help each other out. I have had LOADS of positive feedback about the idea but many people said they couldn’t do day times.
I decided on a daytime as I thought it would be less intimidating for people to pop along to a day time event rather than go along to a pub for what would feel more like a social event. But the bloggers have spoken and I think I was wrong and an evening would be better for most people.
Annnnyway I turned up at the Great Gatsby yesterday, knocking on the door a few minutes before it opened. I assured the bar staff I wasnt a raging alcoholic but there for a meeting. Keri from Little Miss Hungry was the first to arrive, we eyed each other quietly before figuring out we were there for the same reason. Then came Corinne from Motherhood Journies with her two youngest boys (super cute kids!!)
We talked blogging, (obvz) stats, inspiration, recommendations, cliques, Sheffield, kids, work, life and lots more. It was a lovely relaxed meet up and though the numbers were only small I am definitely up for doing more…
Soooooo the next meet up is going to be on Tuesday 14th August at 7pm at The Great Gatsby on Division Street, Sheffield.
Please let any other Sheffield Bloggers know about it and if you have any questions then get in touch xx
