FitBlogNYC: Friends + Inspiration + Awesome Swag = Day to Remember

Oakley's newest sunglasses - designed for the active, yet stylish woman!

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 (LeticiaErica, and Christine) and meet so many that I’ve been chatting with for months (NicoleKatie, 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.
