how are we doing today? I’ve been itching to share this post with you because you know I don’t hold back on a good experience. Last week Sunday was the 2017 edition of The Blogger Point’s bloggers brunch and as the pictures suggest, I had a fantastic time. The coming together of creatives in Abuja this year had a different aura. A lot more guards were down (as compared to last year’s where we came together for the first time and everyone was a bit stiff – and being that it was the first of its kind, i really cant complain), everyone was enthusiastic about the games we played, we shouted at the top of our voices when a familiar face on Instagram walked in, there was a lot to eat and drink…I could go on and on..but it was super fun.
I also haven’t gotten over the location where the event held. It was like something out of a summer destinations brochure. I’ve got to hand it to the founders and planners because they did good and if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that my locations are a huge deal to me. There were palm trees everywhere, white chiffon curtains, rattan chairs, a pool that accentuated the aesthetics of my pictures *wide grin*, to sum it up, it was a picturesque location.
One of the reasons I looked forward to this year’s brunch was to network. It was at last year’s brunch that I got to know Rhoda of AdohrKush and we are blogger buds. I also met Demi last year, Aisha of AishazKitchen and so this year, i looked forward to making new blogger friends.
Every time I think about the community of bloggers that has been formed, I smile because this is a movement that breeds togetherness, partnership, encouragement, motivation and love. There’s no bad blood or ill-feelings and that’s what I hope we maintain in the coming years. A community of bloggers that have genuine regard for one another and genuinely look out for the one next to them. One may say that we are essentially competitors but no one ever got greater by walking alone. It’s only one that is above another that can pull him or her up.
I formed friendships, committed to collaborations and cannot wait to see what the future holds for me as a result of this brunch. Thanks for reading guys!
