Last weekend I went to my first blogging event, the announcement of the Top 100 online creatives for Kidspot’s Voices of 2015. I was more than a bit nervous and was very glad that my friend Olga was coming along too.
It was held at Leonda By The Yarra and the day kicked off with a lovely breakfast sponsored by Garnier Australia. There were some really good tips about how to build the relationship between bloggers and brands and it was a great chance to meet some of the bloggers I have been following over the past months. Oh and the product showbag was a nice little bonus too!
Breakfast was followed by a blogging master class which featured inspiring speakers from Etsy, Olgivy PR and some very successful Australian bloggers. During a break, I bumped into an old friend who I used to do dancing with almost 25 years ago, such a small world!
After the master class we all raised a glass of bubbly for the official announcement of the Top 100. Out of 3000+ bloggers from all around the country, Me&MyGirl made it to the Top 100 within the Parenting & Style category. I was so chuffed to see my name and photo up on the big screen and I had little (happy) tears forming in my eyes. After only eight months of blogging, my dedication and hard work has paid off.
What an amazing day it was and I’m so glad to have met some really lovely like-minded ladies, full of fun and loads of interesting stories. When I started blogging, I had no idea I would make such lovely connections and be part of an incredibly supportive community. Feeling very lucky and blessed and I’m so excited to see where this journey can take me.

Oh and how gorgeous are those flowers? I’m now following the floral creator, Floretta, on IG. Have a look at her beautiful work here.
