I've got good news and bad news.
All of the Blog Podium organizers, panelists and my fellow attendees were lovely, and it was a pleasure to mix and mingle with them at my first bloggers event!
The discussion was lively, interesting and it was great to be surrounded by such unique yet like-minded people, who clearly appreciate creative expression as much as they do design.
Hours later, here are some of the many photos and impressions I walked away with...
Right off the bat it was clear - there was definitely no shortage of tangerine tango and other orangey hues across the floor. What else would you expect for Pantone's colour of the year?!
A number of times, as I wandered around taking my millions of photos and chatting up those working the show, a number of people asked me if I was a designer, to which I'd reply with a big fat "I WISH!"
Yet in saying that, I was actually surprised and delighted at the enthusiastic reception I got when I'd explain that I was there as accredited media, since I had just started my own blog back in September.
Some people even requested my brand spanking new NofW cards so they could check back and see if I featured them in a post. Score! :)
Since this post has already gone on far too long, I'll finish up by saying that it was a fantastic day and that good times were definitely had by all!
Thank you to everyone involved, especially to all those I had the pleasure of meeting at Blog Podium. See you next time!
