Blog Podium Part 2

Me with Sundeep & Liz having fun at the Homesense photo booth
I had such a fantastic time at Blod Podium over the weekend. It was such a whirlwind of an experience, I have much to learn in this vast world of blogging!! It was really awesome meeting bloggers I have followed for some time and getting to know them. Meeting with vendors, and pushing myself out of my comfort zone, it really is a whole new area for me to discover. I was on such a high after I left, I really felt empowered by the information that was shared, and although I still feel sometimes I am not sure what the journey is for Gracefully Searching- I know that I love being apart of it!

1. Beautiful flowers were provided throughout the venue and each table by We Create Hoopla
2. Amahhhzing food was served by Oliver and Bonacini- I ate way too much!!
3. Bloggers feasting away!!
4. A group of panellist shared there success stories, along with some industry experts.
5. Goody bags from West Elm
6.Keynote speaker Nicole of Making it Lovely- gave a fantastic speech about monetizing your blog- and what it takes to make it shine! It was great to hear what her journey was and how her blog came to be what it is today. 
7. A sea of bloggers taking in the wisdom of the speakers, and diligently taking notes!!
