Some of you may remember our local blogging event we first launched last year named Create Curate. Sitting in front of the computer is a lonely venture, and there was a need in my little city for bloggers to get together. We had such a blast at the first Create Curate that Reb and I knew it would become a regular thing.Sadly our summer event fell through due to busy blogger summer schedules. Then Christmas hit and we all know that season is a total write off. So, determined to get some of us together but knowing it would have to be low key, last weekend we got a few girls from the Create Curate group together for brunch.
The brunch was full of discussion on blogging politics, what we’ve done, how we did it and what we want to do. Ideas and advice flowed as smoothly as the coffee into our mugs. And that’s why we created Create Curate in the first place – because while one person can achieve a lot on their own, it’s nothing compared to what can be accomplished with a network to count on for advice and support. Regardless of your field, I feel it’s so important to get together with likeminded creatives, because let’s face it, it’s much more inspiring to talk to someone then to scan through pinterest.
If you’re a blogger and haven’t met any local bloggers in your town yet, I highly suggest you start making contacts. Ask around and search for blogs based in your city. Make your first meet up as simple as a brunch of coffee and let the conversation take over. You never know what will develop. Bouncing ideas off each other could just be the starting point to something incredible.
If not would you create one?
