I’ve been looking forward to FitBlogNYC for over a month now – it was going to be my first “real” blogger/tweet-up event and I knew there would be oodles of twitter and FitFluential friends that I would FINALLY get to meet.
It did not disappoint.
A few highlights of the day:
- Got to catch up with some old friends (Leticia, Erica, and Christine) and meet so many that I’ve been chatting with for months (Nicole, Katie, Jessica, and Cat - to name only a few of the many, many girls that were there).
- Four fabulous FitFluential ladies chaired an informative, upbeat, and fun seminar on How To Turn Your Blog Into a Business. Two of them in particular have me SO much about social media, twitter, and blogging – Kelly Olexa (CEO/Founder of FitFluential) and Carla Birnberg. Being able to meet Kelly and Carla, in person, after months and months of interaction through social media felt surreal – but they are exactly as they portray themselves on their blogs and videos.
- Meeting Mia Hamm and getting an autographed mini-soccer ball for my son!!
- More SWAG than I ever could have imagined. The pictures don’t do it justice!
It was a well-organized and fun event to participate in – I think Fitness Magazine should try to host an event like this in other parts of the country to allow active females the opportunity to come together and socialize.
A special THANK YOU to my mom for babysitting my son for the entire day!! Thanks, Mom =)
Have you ever attended a blogger event?? Did you get some good swag??
