I was lucky to take part in the first New England Bloggers breakfast this past Saturday (June 23, 2012) at McDonald’s in Concord, New Hampshire. Originally we hoped for ten bloggers. We knew there were a couple of bloggers who couldn’t make it. In the end there were only five of us. Other than there only being a few of us, it was still a great time! Not only did we have fun, it was nice to meet the faces behind the blogs.
The bloggers who attended (in addition to myself) were:
Ellen from Confessions of an Overworked Mom (who drove over 2 hours from Vermont and provided the pictures)
Susan from Finger Click Saver
Pam from Mom Does Reviews
Erika from Musings From a Stay at Home Mom
Not only did we talk and share ideas, we had some yummy treats! How can anyone be at McDonalds for three hours and not enjoy the treats?
We look forward to another meeting after the busy summer and hope more of our fellow bloggers are able to join us (I totally understand how busy summer can be!). Our goals we came up with for the future are to have future meetings, put together networking events with a New England focus, and share other learning opportunities to improve our blogs. In return, this benefits our readers. We would love for you to join us. If you are a New England blogger please feel free to request to join our New England Bloggers Facebook group. If you are a brand interested in working with us, we want to hear from you as well. Please feel free to fill out our contact form here.
Finally, I (and my fellow bloggers) am very thankful to McDonalds for being kind enough to be our major sponsor (Please check them out on Twitter @McDEasternNE). I would also like to thank Charmingfare Farm in Candia, NH for providing a review for one of our bloggers (more about that in the near future). Last but far from least, a HUGE thanks to Kate (the awesome PR woman behind helping us make this happen)!
