The Network is about to go on a little holiday break. What does that mean? Well, we’ll still be reading and watching for all your amazing posts, but our own blog is going to be a little quiet for a few days.
Before we leave, though, to celebrate our holidays with family & friends, we wanted to share our own holiday wishes with you.
The past few months have been amazing as the Network has kicked off and grown to 50 active members so quickly. Our hearts grow ten times thinking of how amazing it has been to see bloggers across many regions come together and throw their support behind what we are doing.
We spent December working with our Regional Ambassadors to have Holiday Soirees around the state. Like the bloggers in the areas, each was unique and different. Here is what they looked like…
First up was our Asheville Blogger Event
held at Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar (in the Grove Arcade):
It isn’t Asheville without a dog, Jaime said, and our Western NC bloggers win hands-down with best food selection (look at that cheese plate).
The Triangle Area Bloggers held their event a few days later
at Boylan Bridge Brewpub:
Bloggers drove in from the Triad and Fayetteville to join our sold out Members-Only event. The owner of Boylan Bridge posed with our Co-Founders in a hysterical picture that should be framed somewhere and we enjoyed a private beer tasting.
Charlotte Bloggers had an event
held at The Secret Chocolatier (Ballantyne location):
This intimate group of about 10 bloggers got together to sample to-die for chocolate, speak candidly and honestly about issues affecting bloggers today, and were treated to some highly useful education by the business owner.
Then, rounding out our tour, was the Triad event held in High Point
at Liberty Steakhouse and Brewery:
With a beautiful setting a group of beautiful bloggers came together to network, laugh, and share.
We hope you were able to join us at one of our events, but, if not, stay tuned because we have some big things coming up for you in 2015, our most exciting so far being our Blogging Concentrated events in both Charlotte and Raleigh in March. Also, feel free to contact your Regional Ambassador directly (they all tweet!) to suggest ideas you may have.
Remember that if you received a discounted membership code as a holiday gift from us, it expires on January 2nd, so be sure to take advantage of your savings and join today!
Happy Holidays everyone, and happy blogging.
