CT Blogger Meet Up & Etsy Sponsor Love

This weekend was amazing: visits with family, a wedding shower, and right in the middle - a fantastic Connecticut blogger meet up!  Kallie and I planned this event for the past couple of months and were so happy to spend Saturday afternoon with 5 other beautiful ladies!


Left to right:
Natasha [One Woman's Style]
Annie [New England Romance]
Znara [Hot Mama Hikers]
Kallie [But First, Coffee]
Amanda [RIP MandaLoves]
Me!

At Black-Eyed Sally's in Hartford, we ate delicious barbecue, tried some great cocktails, and discussed everything blogging: why we blog, time and money budgeting, Blogger vs. Wordpress, how to create the best posts, what readers are looking for, social media effectiveness, and how to create effective blog growth.  

Also, thank you to the following event sponsors for making this meet up even more fun:
I highly suggest you check out some of these fantastic Etsy shops!  On the left is what each lady received in her goodie bag thanks to the top three sponsors, and on the right are all of our door prizes from the bottom five sponsors [yes, some overlap - thank you all for your generosity]:

Thank you to each of the ladies who attended as well as Northeast Bloggers Network and Connecticut Bloggers for your support!  If you're a CT blogger or even a New England blogger who is interested in traveling to CT for a meet up, we want to hear from you!  We are always looking for new meet up locations, ideas, and sponsors!
