The great bloggers event - Blognix 2014

This was my first bloggers event which I signed up to attend. I was pretty nervous but because it was in Birmingham I just could not miss it! So holding my nerves back, I booked my ticket and before I knew it, the time was here. I stayed over at the Bloc hotel the night before as the event started at 9.30am and it just would of been too much for me to get a train very early in the morning from my place. Bloc hotel gave a discount code for Blognix attendees so it was definitely an offer to accept. The hotel itself was lovely, the room was small but very modern and I really liked the colourful ceiling lights they had. I also had no noise problem or any trouble staying there over night considering it was a Friday! So great choice Blognix! 

Now when I reached Blognix at The Custard Factory, I met up with the lovely Yasmin from Yazzys Corner. I already knew she was going so it was nice to put a face to her blog! Once we went in, I signed in and received my goodie bag! 

At 10am the event started, Elizabeth Seller is the founder of Blognix and runs her own blog called Rosalilium. I have been following her blog for a while now, before I even started blogging and it was really nice to see her in person as she is such a lovely person and absolutely beautiful inside and out. She welcomed everyone and then through out the day there were various talks and workshops. 

Here is a list of speakers and the topics they discussed. 

  • Kim Lawler - Beyond Advertising: Kick Ass Ways to Profit from Your Blog – Kim Lawler Creative
  • Emma Cossey - The Truth About Freelancing – The Freelance Lifestyle
  • Rosie Slosek - Why Cake is the Key Tool for Your Tax Return – One Man Band Accounting
  • Sam and Lea - Pump Up The Volume: How to tell a story with your voice – The High Tea Cast
  • Lucy Heath - Finding Happiness in Everyday: Photography workshop – Capture by Lucy
  • Cathy Presland - How To Monetise Your Blog With a Book – The Big Book Project
  • Hayley Carr - How to Negotiate Brand Collaborations – London Beauty Queen
  • Hayley Constantine - Disclosure: Not a dirty word – Bonjour Blogger
  • Elizabeth Sellers - Brand Like You Mean It: Actionable steps to building a strong brand – Rosalilium
  • Ahmed Ahmed - How to boost your blog with an offline event – Dine Birmingham
  • Justice Williams MBE - Passion, Purpose and Profit: How something you love can make you an entrepreneurCity and Style Magazine

I really enjoyed the whole event and found every speaker to be very informative about what they had to say. The question and answer session at the end of each talk was really useful and helpful too.  

We were provided with a free lunch and loads of cake which were baked by bloggers and then a winner was picked at the end. 

I met loads of lovely bloggers throughout this event and it was just nice to be able to go to an event which I knew I would enjoy from the start! It was also nice that you could talk about the blogging world with people who were actually interested in the same topic as well. 
I would definitely recommend everyone to attend the next one as there are many things which I have learnt and hopefully will be putting it to action on my blog. 

Let me know if you also attended as I would love to check your blog out!

  2. It was a great day - I learnt so much! Now I have to put all my new knowledge to action on my blog. Hopefully, I'll be able to go again next year and learn even more. I stayed at Bloc Hotel too, it was a great choice I thought.
