My First Bloggers Workshop

My first bloggers workshop! On Saturday I attended my first bloggers workshop with Olerato Pharasi from House of OP.It was so much fun meeting fellow bloggers, getting to know them personally and hearing about their experience in the blogging world .

The workshop was held at the Protea Hotel in Port Elizabeth.  Olerato took time to familiarize herself with our blogs and each blogger. She gave each one of us specific tips on things we can improve and things she liked about our blogs.

We also talked about what type of blogger we are and what make us different. She even had some tips for those who would like to monetize their blogs and turn it into a business. Needless to say after 2 hours we were ready for coffee and some eats and treats. We each got to take home a booklet with everything we discussed and more.

During the workshop we also had the opportunity to write down some blogging goals for 2017. So I decided this year  I want to:

  1. Collaborate with a fellow blogger.
  2. Post more.
  3. Improve on my blog photography.
  4. Attend more bloggers events.

I was pretty excited for my first bloggers workshop. We do not have a lot of bloggers events in Port Elizabeth and I feel like during events like these you really get to know your fellow bloggers and learn from them. A big thank you to Olerato for hosting such a fun event. I am looking forward to the next one.  Let me know in the comments if you’ve attended any bloggers events recently.
