I’m back from Berlin and what a whirlwind weekend I’ve had! As you know I was attending The Hive Blog Conference 2012. This was the first Hive conference and I’m sure it won’t be the last as it seemed to be a great success.
We were treated to some wonderfully inspirational and informative talks on all manner of blogging topics. We also got to meet and network with a host of new and seasoned bloggers. I met some really lovely people – in particular Toni and Thea of Sister Mag, Clara of Taste Sheriff as well as Jeanette of Fryd og Design.
Jeanette gave an interesting presentation about Online Magazines. She talked with such grace about her own experiences and vision, whilst giving useful advice.
Thea and Toni of Sister Mag produced a dynamic talk called New and Traditional Media which left me feeling really inspired to make use of more technology and widen my creative ideas for blogging.
My favourite talk of the conference was by Deborah of Kickcan & Conkers. Finding New and Innovative Content was her topic – something she demonstrates with abundance on her blog. Like me, she strives to find small independent artists and designers to promote. I loved her enthusiasm for keeping things fresh.
I was also truly inspired by the ever-so-humble Gabrielle of Design Mom. She spoke about The Business of Blogging and described her journey from beginner to blogger-extraordinaire.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to all the great speakers at The Hive 2012. If you pop back tomorrow I’ll show you some more images from the event and venue.
