So yesterday I attended and helped out at Bloggers Festival set up by the fantastic Scarlett! I had such an amazing time and it was great to see some fab brands and meet amazing new bloggers too. I had attended and helped out Scarlett last year and thought I would lend a hand this year as I really enjoyed it.
The blogging world has really changed from the days of LiveJournal and MySpace (God I sound so OLD). Now it is more about getting noticed and being rewarded for your efforts. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but I think you should blog because you love it and have something to say rather than ‘OH BRANDS GIVE ME FREE STUFF’. Fortunately, I really liked a few of the brands at #BloggersFestival, in particular Jewellerybox.co.uk, Nanshy, Cloud 9 and Simply Be. There were many others there but these were just a few of the ones I really liked.
All in all it – it was a fantastic day and my arm is killing me from carrying the goody bag home. I can’t wait to attend more events like this and I look forward to next year’s #BloggersFestival too!
