Hi dear #byLily readers! Today I want to reflect on my interesting and oh so exciting Saturday afternoon! Because as you may know, I attended a blog class event hosted by lovely Yara from the successful blog ‘This Chick’s got style’.
I think I am speaking for everyone (75 young ladies) who attended this class that it turned out to be one of those afternoons that you will always remember, because it will probably take your passion to the next level by getting inspired in so many ways. At least.. that was in my case! ;)
Let’s start at the beginning. The blog class was held at a very hip and nice location, the Westergasterras, in Amsterdam. We were welcomed with a healthy smoothie to start the day (I was really happy with this smoothie, as I didn’t have time to have a decent breakfast). Just before the presentation started, I met Yara for a brief sec, wishing her good luck (which she obviously didn’t need :D)!
Then the presentation started. The most important subjects for a blog were covered, with some really nice tips and tricks. It even got interactive with a small exercise to make her words even more substantial.
I have been making many practical notes, such as keeping an editorial calendar (planning your posts) and always add the ‘alt image tag’ to your pictures (for SEO purposes). You can say that it was a very useful presentation, especially for starting bloggers.
Yara nailed the presentation like no other. Besides the well-structured content of the presentation, it was her confidence and passion that inspired me. On top of that, she is such a sweetheart! She took her time to have a chat and pictures with her followers. I gotta say that ‘this chick is awesome’!
So, the other great thing about this is event was meeting fellow bloggers! It is so nice to chat with them, since we are in the same boat trying to reach for the stars. Now you might think that we are competitors, but on the contrary, everyone sincerely tries to help each other out! For example, I was always wondering what lens to use for shooting the perfect outfit photos (the 50mm lens I have heard twice that day, so I need to do this investment hihi). I love this world!
Now I come to the end of my reflection. I want to thank Yara and her dream team (Kelly & Karen) for this well-organized delightful afternoon. Closing this with a funny fact: afterwards I found out that Yara and I have danced together when we were very young :D
Together with miss Yara
A well packed goodiebag to take home <3
