I just returned to Portland at midnight last night but I wanted to stop in and give you a quick recap! The first ever Blogcademy took place in New York over the weekend and since I’d never done a workshop before, I had no idea what to expect. On Friday, Kat, Gala and I saw each other for the first time face-to-face since February (crazy, huh?!) and we had a lot to catch up on in one day before the workshop! We ended up pulling days that lasted from 6 am until 12 am every day, making sure our content was in tip-top shape. And while hosting a workshop was some of the hardest work I’ve ever done, it was also the most rewarding. Bonding with 30 amazing, driven women with big dreams over the weekend was so inspiring in ways I can’t even put into words (the whole weekend is still sinking in). Sharing the strategy and insights we’d gathered was heavy at times — our presentation numbered nearly 150 pages and that can be a lot of content to absorb in just two days. But our attendees remained focused, scribbling down page after page of notes.
This first workshop is an experience I’ll never forget — we poured our hearts into the content and I hope that everyone walked away with a better understanding of how to take both their branding and blog content to the next level. Thank you to every single student who believed in our workshop; we feel like we’ve made some new friends and your questions and insights are what drive us to keep raising the bar.
Stay tuned for a full Blogcademy recap (I have a lot more to say once I’m settled in) as well as a thank you to our wonderful sponsors who helped make this event extra special.
