Wednesday: The stage was set at The Southern C with the marque outside and a beautifully decorated stage. My two favorite sessions of the entire event started the conference off with a bang: Eddie Ross showed us many beautiful before and afters from Better Homes & Gardens. After that, four fantastic bloggers (Chassity Evans, Grace Atwood, Liz Adams, and Caroline Harper Knapp) shared everything about branding, collaboration, and strategic growth. The Vine decorated the whole William Aiken House courtyard, and all attendees enjoyed an array of drinks and snacks from local food and drink vendors like Food for the Southern Soul, King Bean Coffee Roasters, Proper Pepper Pimento Cheese, and Cathead Vodka.

After a few cocktails, I headed over to Zero George to meet up with some fellow bloggers for even more drinks and snacks. Afterwards, a few of us went to Cru Cafe, and I will be sharing my whole experience there later in the week. Thanks so much to Erin for setting it all up!

I had a great time meeting new bloggers, companies, and spending time with my fellow Charleston Blog Society members. I look forward to many new collaborations in the future!
