After about a year of me blogging, I really wanted to get to meet other bloggers that lived in Southampton and become more connected to the blogging community and get to know them face to face not just over a screen and after going on Google looking for blogging events all over Southampton I come across Southampton Bloggers Instagram page.
After doing a bit of research about Southampton Bloggers and having a look at their social media pages I then decided to follow them and start tagging them in things relatable to blogging and photos I’ve taken in Southampton and uploaded onto my social media pages. A few weeks later I looked on their Instagram page and story to find that they also do blogging events what I thought was amazing so after getting in contact with them and asking them how I come along to their blogging events that they do and gave them my email and other info they needed I then go added to their event list. A few weeks later I got an email about an event in Southampton to Stakks pancakes I then got back to their email and told them that I’d loved to come I then added the date into my calendar.
The day of the event got closer and closer what meant I was getting more never and I told some of my friends and family this and they said “Jack you’ve been blogging for a long time you will be fine” what I was but like I said its completely different talking to blogger over a screen, on your blog and on social media then it is face to face.
I then turned up to the event at Stakks Pancakes and met the lovely Southampton Bloggers team, Ellish Jade “The Southampton Girl” and all the amazing bloggers and it was such a lovely event and I’m definitely going to try and go to other ones when I can. The staff at Stakks Pancakes wear all lovely and all the bloggers, the Southampton Bloggers team and Ellish Jade wear all so kind.
We then had to pick what pancakes and drink we wanted and they all looked so yummy and it was hard to choose what one but after looking at the menu I went for the Blueberry pancake with chocolate and ice cream and it was so yummy and it looked amazing I also had a strawberry milkshake and that was so yummy. All of the pancakes that Southampton Bloggers, Ellish Jade and the bloggers chosen all looked so yummy and of course bloggers being bloggers we all ended up taking so many photos but hey its a life of a blogger so what do you suspect and to the amazing team at Southampton Bloggers, Ellish Jade and the bloggers who attended the event you made my first blogging event one to remember and I loved it also I really didn’t want it to end and I can’t wait for the next one and to any bloggers who are thinking about going to bloggers events I highly recommended you. Happy Blogging
