This post is a bit late considering I attended this event a few weeks ago now, but better late than never right?
So I attended the #bloggerswhobrunch launch event a few weeks ago.
I had said to myself that I really wanted to attend a bloggers event this year and even though it was a real push, I am glad I did it.
It was in London so I really wanted to make the effort and attend because I live and work in London so really I should have zero problems getting to and from the event.
The location itself was stunning, it was a penthouse and the views were pretty good, even if it was a pretty dreary rainy day!
But I didn’t have the best time, I personally felt really quite lonely. I know loads of people met up beforehand but I didn’t know about that and plus I was a bit late getting to the event so I think that would’ve been pretty annoying for people to have to wait for me.
I generally felt like there were cliques, now don’t get me wrong, I love the blogging community and I have always been met with nothing but support and love, but on this occasion I didn’t really feel a part of it. It perhaps was my fault too because I didn’t know anyone and I could’ve spoken to people and made some effort, but it was a hard time because I was in a room with so many people and it was overwhelming.
I think perhaps there should’ve been more ways of interacting and getting to know people better, maybe with start-up games etc? I don’t know and I’m not criticizing, I have never organised this type of event before so I don’t doubt that it is a lot of hard work but I have to be honest and this is genuinely how I felt.
I didn’t want to write this post because I didn’t want to come across negative but I did want to post my pictures somewhere and even though I want my blog to be a positive place, I will always be true and honest to myself and my readers.
Have you ever been to a bloggers event before? Did you enjoy it?
