MEET THE BLOGGER STOCKHOLM
On saturday february the 2nd, about 75 bloggers from all over Europe gathered at the Scandic Grand Central hotel for the Stockholm edition of Meet the Blogger.
BrightBazaar. I've been reading his blog for a while now, so I was very excited to hear him talk about how to build a bright and successful blogging brand and how he turned blogging into a full time job. He even created a super cute and super handy Guide to blogging infographic with all his tips for us to take with us. I'll be putting them into practice on my own blog. My favorite tip? "Be a creator, not a curator!"
The second presentation came from the sisters Thea and Toni (left photo: middle and right), the founders and editors of online magazine SistersMAG. They talked us through their creative process and shared with us their passion for online magazines. According to these sisters from Germany, the online magazine market will grown tremendously and that is why they recently launched their digital publishing company Carry-On Publishing. Impressive. After the lunch break it was time for a presentation from the editors of Heart Home Magazine (right) talking to us about how three passionate bloggers came to produce an online decor magazine.
I also got to attend the workshop on photography and styling for your blog by Jeanette Lunde (left) of the popular photography blog By Fryd. My favorite workshop was by Kirsten Jassies (right) of Sanoma's bloggersnetwork Blog Today. She talked about the rise of visual content. Loved it. Great examples and tips! You'll find her presentation on SlideShare.
Scandic Grand Central hotel! Not only did it look beautiful, it tasted fantastic as well!
