My 2018 Blogger Xchange Experience
This past weekend I attended the Inaugural Blogger Xchange Expo here in Nashville and it was nothing short of an amazing event! An entire weekend of networking with other bloggers, learning what’s new in the world of blogging, being introduced to some great brands I wasn’t previously familiar with……and all of this taking place in some great venues ( George Jones Restaurant/Bar/Museum, Redpepper Creative Agency, and Industrious Co-working office space in The Gulch)
I’ve been blogging since around 2012 and in that time, so many doors have been opened and opportunities afforded to me because of it. I’ve met many other creatives, content creators, restaurant owners, Chefs, appeared on a couple of TV food shows, been able to share my full-time career work as a Podiatrist, inspirational posts, service to my community, and……life in general etc. It’s been an AMAZING creative outlet for me!
Just as I attend medical conferences regularly to keep up with everything new in the medical world, I find it important to meet with other bloggers and creatives to stay in the know in this arena as well!
The masterminds behind Blogger Xchange are two lovely ladies, Leigh Love and Kay Elle, who orchestrated the event to a “T”! Everyone was speaking of how lovely it was!
Head on over to my Instagram feed ( @DinnerWithNerds ) for more pics with links to the Blogger Xchange Instagram feed as well as the other businesses/brands I discovered during the weekend.
Since this is the “Inaugural Expo”I assume there are more to come and I’m certainly looking forward to next year!
