Blogalicious ATL!

I attended a wonderful Blogalicious Meetup event hosted by Lamar & Ronnie Tyler of BlackAndMarriedWithKids.  It was held at the Hudson Grille in midtown Atlanta. A precursor or teaser even for the major Blogalicious Weekend event that is being held this year in Washington D.C., it was the place to be if you are a blogger who is passionate about what you blog about and you like to mingle.  There was a panel of successful bloggers there to share their stories and to answer questions.  We were able to see part of a Be Blogalicious documentary. There were giveaways, information, good food & drink and much, much more.  It was a packed house full of fascinating people.

The panel included: Stacey of Justice Fergie; Danica Kombol of Be Everywhere, and Bren Herrera of Flanboyant Eats.   Lamar Tyler was the MC along with his lovely wife, Ronnie.  We learned about choosing a niche, determining your passion, when is the right time to call in a professional, promoting your brand, the importance of Networking and the list goes on.

This was an interesting, informative and very well put together mixer.  I really enjoyed myself and I learned so much.  I see a Blogalicious Weekend event in my future!!!  In the meantime, for more information on Blogalicious Weekend and how to register check out their website!

Thanks for reading :-)
