Blog On MSI

A few weekends back I met up with friends AK and Sadie (who are fellow bloggers) and we travelled up to Manchester together. Why? A girly weekend you might ask? Shopping? Not quite! 

An overnight stay in Manchester ready for Blog On at the Museum of Science and Industry. Our second Blog On at that venue! 
Starting at 10am on the Sunday the drive up there on the day would have been too early for us, hence the night in Manchester the previous night. That meant we could meet up with other blogger's the night before for food and chat.
Blog On for me is mainly about getting together with like minded people who share a passion for blogging. It's about mingling with brands and chatting to them about their current opportunities, entering competitions and socialising! I do go to some of the sessions (if they are relevant to me) but they are not my top priority. 

This year I did attend the Vlogging session and both the opening speech and part of the final keynote. At all other times I was either eating the gorgeous Christmas food (as Blog On was all about Christmas this time), chatting to blogging friends and/or with the brands.
The Museum staff were very attentive with their topping up of food and drink (which was aplenty) and of course Laura and the Blog On organisers and helpers were busy making sure everything ran smoothly and everyone was happy! 
I entered the Tombola and raffle as usual which this year raised money for Team Cowley! A huge amount was raised which is fab. No raffle prizes were won here but at the end we all left with amazing goody bags and lots of new contacts. I even had a manicure and back massage! How cool is that! 

I truly feel this is the best Blog On I've been to. It was fun, festive and the brands were great (and very relevant for me). 

Thanks Laura, another great conference in the Bag! 

Thanks also to all the brands in attendance!
