Houston Blogger Symposium 2012

I know I don’t normally post this much in one week, but I didn’t want to wait until next week to share this one! This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the first annual Houston Blogger Symposium, and I thought I would share some pictures πŸ™‚ The event was put together by the wonderful Megan of Greetings From Texas, and she did such an awesome job! The weekend started on Friday night with a meet and greet at Langford Market in Rice Village (thanks, Langford!), where we could all mingle amongst lovely clothes, accessories, and wine – perfection! Saturday morning we reconvened at Hotel ZaZa, a gorgeous hotel near the Museum District. While eating a delicious brunch, we listened to a panel of successful local bloggers who were so sweet and filled with insight and advice for us. We also had the chance to hear from reps from Langford Market, Francesca’s Collections, and Reward Style to learn how to build positive and beneficial relationships with brands. The symposium finished up with a talk from the elegant Lisa O’Neil of Newton O’Neil Communications with some helpful PR tips. I walked away with so much information and a greater appreciation for the Houston community of bloggers, but most importantly, I left with many new friends (I know, SO cheesy, but seriously, it was one of my greatest weekends in Houston so far)!
