Event | #HullBloggersMeet 2016

Our most recent event was held at Liquid Jade, a tea bar nestled away in Zebedee's Yard, just of Whitefriargate in Hull. With over 15 bloggers attending, the meet up focused on networking, making friends and learning new things (as well as consuming lots of tea and cake). We introduced a few new ideas, such as blogger bucket lists and a workshop hour, where bloggers could share the top tricks of their trade, whilst keeping with the #HullBloggers tradition of a raffle, small goodie bag and lots of photo opportunities.

Needless to say, the event was a huge success, raising £60 for local women's charity Purple House, as well as collecting a small truck load of material donations such as clothes, beauty products and bric-a-brac.

But don't just take our word for it, read what our bloggers had to say!

"It was so wonderful to meet so many new faces - who knew we'd grown so much in the past three and a half years?! - and catch up with some old ones." - Charley, Charley Lucy.

"The idea of the lists was to help us meet new people and give us an idea of all the things we could be doing to be active on social media, I found it really useful and totally love the idea but maybe that’s the organiser in me loving lists?" - Maria, Baby Bee and Mummy Me.

"Each table was then transformed into different headed sections, enabling bloggers to ask questions and discuss topics such as social media, photography and so on, which I think is such a great idea for both newbie bloggers and older bloggers, as things change so often in this industry that you can always learn something new." - Kat, The Kats Paws.

"It was great to discuss any struggles we face with these (including my bad habit of not scheduling posts!!) and some tips that would go on to help us massively."  - Emma, - The Pin Picker

"I met some lovely people who didn't even judge me when I stood up to get a flat lay of my tea and cake!" - Amy, Call Me Amy
