Blogger Bash 2015
This was my first year attending the full Blogger Bash conference! Last year I attended Sweet Suite and had a really great time. This year would be no exception.
Blogger Bash was held at the beautiful Chelsea Piers all the way on the west side of Manhattan. Pier 60 has always been one of my favorite areas because of the sheer space available. Plus, it’s also kinda nice to be so close to the water with incredible views!!
Bloggers came from near and far to learn, mix, mingle and get to know their favorite brands. Plus it helps that bloggers were offered one on one speed dating sessions with some top notch brands! Instead of begging for a business card at an overcrowded expo, bloggers had the chance to create genuinely authentic relationships with the companies they wanted to work with!
The Themed Meals
What I thought was super cool was the themed meals (especially the breakfasts!!) they really brought it this year! I mean, a Care Bears Breakfast?! Yes. Thank you. My inner little girl had all the squeals. Care Bears is such a timeless franchise and I’m so happy it never really left!
The Peanuts lunch was so awesome too!! I don’t really talk about swag but man they gave us the cutest Peanuts themed thermos and coffee mug. It is now my favorite things to drink out of!
Sweet Suite 2015
Just when you thought they couldn’t top last year’s event–they did!! They had SO many toy brands and fun in the room it was impossible not to enjoy yourself!
In addition to ALL of that there were a lot of amazing sessions on blogger education but to be honest my favorite session was a panel with Blogging powerhouses Jill Smokler from Scary Mommy, Rene Syler from Good Enuf Mother and Maria Bailey from BSM Media. Crazy good lineup right? We are talking crazy blogger power and millions of page views between these ladies. It was a total honor to not only hear from them but that they weren’t divas about it. They were all super down to earth and awesome.
The panel was moderated by Joey and discussed how bloggers should be working together and not apart. I could have gotten up and started praise dancing at this session because I LOVE the collaborative aspect of blogging. It feeds my soul to see another blogger WIN. It was awesome.
As a finale, the Blogger Bash Team pulled out all the stops at their Lentils Carnival Party. The room was like a REAL carnival. Every detail from the lighting to the games was so great! Plus all the food was infused with Lentils so there were Lentils Sliders, drinks and etc. I loved it!
Thank you so much to the Blogger Bash team for being so gracious and helpful every time I needed anything! It really was a flawless conference and I can’t wait until BBNYC 2016!!
