Go Blog Social

This past weekend was filled with laughter, mentoring sessions, and blog tips at the Go Blog Social workshop in Chicago. The speakers were inspiring, and full of great advice! The event took place at City View Loft and we got off to a great start with breakfast from LM Catering. Then Melissa Jones, of theCEOofffice held mini mentor sessions and explained the power of creatives connecting.gbsxchi-schedule

Janet Mandell, of Fashionaholic reminded us to stay true to our brand, ensure our blogs are searchable by using SEO, and to post multiple times a day so we don’t leave out our international followers.

Hallie Wilson, of Corals + Cognacs taught us to grow our following by letting people into our lives and behind the scenes. She also left us armed with a cold emailing trick and reminded us that the dream is free, but the hustle is sold separately.

The Freebies

The prints from Curio Press left us feeling motivated, and the Vita Coco kept us hydrated. I can’t wait to try out all my other goodies! Thank you all for sponsoring so generously.

The Bloggers

It was so good to catch up with the ladies behind Katalina Girl, Sincerely Jennie, and With Grace And Gold.


And of course I made new friends! The day was so full so I’m sure I didn’t capture everything that took place, but I would love to answer any questions this leaves you with if you leave a comment below.


As always thank you for reading, commenting, and liking!

      Check your meet up groups and local blogger networks. Sometimes the person promoting it doesn’t do a good job of spreading the word so dig deep.
