I went to the Alt SF conference last year, but I attended my first blogger meetup on Friday. It was hosted by the craft-fabulous Brit + Co in their new space which is two blocks away from my home. So convenient for me as I took a very short bus ride from work, then walked home. Brit + Co received more than $6 million in funding last summer.
The event was very well-organized by J for Jamie and Of Trees & Hues. What I liked about it was that it was small and intimate. I get totally overwhelmed in large groups, which was why attending Alt SF kinda made me hyperventilate.
I also just finished up a really tough week at work, including a 4am start on Tuesday. Plus I was up until 9pm the night before troubleshooting a major issue. Shoot me! All that said, I was the first person to leave the blogger meetup because this pregnant lady was exhausted. Queue the song ‘She Works Hard for the Money.’
I got to meet great women at the event and I’m looking forward to tapping into their businesses/blogs. And check out the generous schwag.
