Bloggers Who Brunch

A lot of us start blogging to share our views and connect with like-minded people around the globe, but somewhere along the way we can start to feel isolated if we don’t meet up in person. That’s why I decided to get a group of bloggers together. So what happens when bloggers go out for brunch? There’s a lots of laughter, support, and a TON of photos of course! Imagine no one rushing you as you tirelessly try for the perfect shot of your pretty plate, because in this social circle it’s not only accepted, but expected.

The Venue

Our first stop on the blogger brunch tour was The Allis inside Soho House. We couldn’t ask for better lighting because every cozy corner is a bloggers dream.  Plus this is one of the very few places that serve afternoon tea everyday. the-allisIMG_8477IMG_8470

The Food

The menu is limited and budget friendly with all of the choices under $15, but keep in mind this is only one dining option inside Soho House. I suggest arriving as early as possible because this popular spot uses fresh ingredients and they tend to sell out on weekends.PSX_20160412_094110IMG_8461image-3-1

The Bloggers

Meet the bloggers who brunch! From left to right in the photo below we have Jalpa of Samosa Pop, Michaela of The Deep End Review, Dannie of Stile.Foto.Cibo., Sabrina of Styles By Sab, Lindsey of Butter & Type and Dasha of Windy City Wardrobe.PSX_20160412_094442 20160409_134511-1

Takeaways

I quickly learned that we all blog for different reasons, about multiple topics, for varying audiences. But what we all have in common is we love what we do, and we couldn’t do it well without the support of family, friends, and each of you who take time out of the day to connect with us.  We stay up late on workdays and get up early on weekends to test recipes, and bare the brunt of bitter cold days as we pile our cars full of clothes to hop around town styling photo shoots. Some of our family members think our blogs are modeling portfolios, while others nod and grin as the idea of blogging is completely lost on them. There’s even mothers who shall remain nameless, that print out each blog post and bind them in a scrap book.  So even though each blog is different, there are more similarities than differences among the blogosphere.IMG_8478

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

With LOVE,

    How fun!! I just recently started meeting up with other bloggers too! It’s so much better to have a community of strong woman around you rather than doing it on your own. Plus, what a great venue to host it at, love the blue plates!!

  18. Awesome Post! How can I be apart of the Bloggers who Brunch club?

    1. Dāsha says:

      Thanks girl, overjoyed by the positive feedback! There are two options in Chicagoland. You can forge your on blogger brunch club like we did or become a member of the Windy City Blogger Collective and join the brunches, and holiday dinners hosted by the founders. They actually have one this Saturday. I’m a bit of an overachiever these days so I do both 😉

        Try meetup groups or do a Google search on blogger networks, and collectives in your city or the closest major city to you. If there’s no such luck look for a blogger conference or connect with bloggers on social media. I’ve met some of my best local blogging buddies on instagram! Good luck 👍
