San Francisco’s Blog Party: Recap

the Blog Party attendeesOn Friday evening Jessica and I drove to San Francisco for the Blog Party event that Jamie had organized for 30 bloggers. I wasn’t too sure what to except when I went there, but I knew I had to attend to meet more bloggers around the area. So glad I did, it was such a fun time.

Social Print Studio pupThe resident dog was pretty chilled out. I swear his head was the same size as Alfie’s entire body. He was a sweetie, playing with his santa hat toy.

Social Print Studio had a sweet set up where they let us print our instagram pictures using the hashtag #spsblogparty from this crazy fun printer. Here’s a few of our prints.

It was the first time I met Jamie, and the other bloggers. Most of them were from the Bay Area, but Suzanna drove two hours to get to the event, from beautiful Monterey. Reminds me of the days I commuted to Toronto for blog-events, however it wasn’t as far as she travelled.

Blog-Party-sponsorsAs the evening drew to an end, there were a few awesome door prizes such as letter–pressed business cards (!!!) kindly donated from Lilikoi Design — definitely going to use them once I figure out a logo for my website (or use the one in the banner that I created a few months ago), and create some business cards.

From all the photographers, fitness & beauty bloggers, and artists there were so many creative people at Blog Party. I have to say I’m itching to get painting again after talking to a few of them. I regret throwing away all my acrylic paints (to be honest they were dried up because they didn’t get loved).

If you’re into calligraphy (who isn’t?!), check out her site. Reminds me of the days I watched my Dad practice writing it.

I really loved Kait’s shoes that she wore to the party. Carla & Sarah, excited to see you at BlogHer. “Saving the best for last” oh Christine. So nice to meet, chat and laugh with you. And so many more other bloggers, that I’ve swapped business cards with. Happy to re-connect with a few familiar faces later on this month as a handful of the bloggers I met on Friday will be at the BlogHer conference.
