Little Blog Big Workshop

Carly & Christina

I wasn’t planning to write a blog post on this, but its been over 24 hours and I’m still pumped from yesterday’s Little Blog Big workshop, so I had to jot it all down.

I’ve said it here before… this blogging community I’ve found myself part of is pretty damn amazing. Its like nothing I’ve ever experienced. In particular, the Aussie blogging community is the most friendly, non-competitive, creative, fun, inspiring environment, full of support.

Yesterday’s Little Blog Big workshop was run by two of Australia’s most awesome bloggers, Christina from blogs, Hair Romance and Mr and Mrs Romance and Carly from Smaggle.

From the minute I walked into the room, I felt inspired and knew we were in for something special. Christina and Carly were so down to earth. They greeted every one personally with a big hug. Carly even knew my blog! Yay! They were both completely authentic, exactly as I expected them to be like, from years spent reading their blogs.

They had all the details covered…there were gold foil balloons spelling out ‘BLOG’, which made for perfect piccies, a sweets table, awesome catering, goodie bags, they had even thought to cover the fluro lights so not to ruin our photos. Who even thinks to do that?!

BLOG

After going around the room to introduce ourselves and give our blog elevator pitch {and work out which bloggers to stalk later} it was straight into the first session. There were 4 sessions covering:

1. Finding Your Blogging Groove
2. Getting The Most Out Of Social Media
3. Planning and Productivity With Your Blog
4. Media Kit Basics and Dealing With PRs

They covered it all and then some… taking turns to run the sessions, they shared their wisdom honestly, with energy, passion and humour. Right down to the nitty gritty day to day things they do to win at blogging the way they do so beautifully. There were many laughs along the way and lovely new connections made.

24 hours later, my mind is still boggling with all the STUFF and I’ve written an action list longer than my left arm so I don’t forget the absolute gold they taught us. It was a great follow on from the Clever Cookie School of Blog course I took last year when I first started my blog, with a bunch of new tools to now implement and build upon.

Carly and Christina have just released new dates for the next round of workshops and they’ve also updated the content so you’re in for a real treat!
