I recently spotted Trend Watching's June newsletter (thanks for the tip, @MyThink) about the HOT HOT HOT trend of Mass Mingling and we love it since....we do it! BOL is this. And, hey, apparently a year ahead of the curve.
As Blog Out Loud celebrates it's 1 year anniversary, we appreciate the incredible real world connections that have been fostered through our own little events. We definitely know that long gone are the days/nights of feeling "isolated" while typing away on the keypads. Now is a time where like-minded people are connecting online and meeting offline - YES! I often share with people who aren't into social media yet that it IS relating, just in a different form. While it starts online (yes, it does take a bit to get used to at first), it's really a vehicle for forming relationships, friendships, business-ships that can be taken offline and in-person
For me, the BOL 6 event will be special for a few reasons >>
- It's our 1 year anniversary of BLOG OUT LOUD
- Our first east coast event in my fave city!
- Our amazing guest list - all of you lovely RSVPs
- I am meeting some online friends - in person - finally! I've e-know Erin for almost 2 yrs, Amy and I met over twitter last year, Michelle has already been part of BOL w a fab interview, Meredith and I worked online together for an AT post and Alison and I met through @Etsy. All of these ladies are people that I e-met and now, well, will meet in life.
