On Saturday, I spent the day with over 250 other bloggers at the 2013 Blog Podium conference in Toronto. It was a great day filled with learning, laughter and new friends – and of course, the whole conference was adorable (what else would you expect from a bunch of lifestyle bloggers?)
There were some fabulous speakers throughout the day, including an expert panel (above) which included Emma Reddington, blogger-turned-Chatelaine-editor and the face behind the lovely Marion Housebook. I also got to hear from a Toronto blogger I love – Stephanie Sterjovski – and from the hilarious & talented Gabriel Coco of the Artful Desperado.
We also had a little afterparty which was tons of fun – and way too short!
Goofing off with Gabriel and Vanessa from Glimmer Glimmer Sparkle Shimmer. Fun fact: The three of us truly represent Canada from coast-to-coast! Gabriel lives in Vancouver, I live in Toronto, Vanessa is from Halifax. Totally proves the power of conferences – they really bring people together.
I’ll have Part 2 of this post up later in the week, with reflections on what I learned – stay tuned!
