Throughout the country bloggers are taking the initiative to create and run blogger meet ups- events where like-minded bloggers can meet, network and socialise together. There are new events popping up all the time, and we’ve picked a few for you to look over. All run by and for bloggers!
Plus North www.plusnorth.com run by http://theonlywayist.com/ and http://www.mrsbebeblog.co.uk/
Plus north is great not only for plus size bloggers, but for anyone into fashion. The event itself has grown and grown, and this years on had an incredible selection of well known fashion brands attending. It’s quickly becoming one of the best known blogger meet ups and is definitely worth attending if you not only want to meet other bloggers, but also if you’re interested in how brands worth with bloggers.

Creating a way for bloggers local to each other to network is a priceless idea- and Essex bloggers is the perfect example of this! Building relationships with like-minded bloggers is great for so many reasons. Blogging can be isolating, you’re on your computer alone a lot of the time so meeting with local bloggers will help you keep up to date with blogging trends and new ideas. With the second event set up by http://www.lilliesandlove.co.uk/ and a Christmas event organised by http://squibbvicious.com/ to come, the Essex bloggers group is definitely one to watch.

Another great regional meet up to keep an eye on. The first one went so well the girls are already planning another endeavour! They’re events are not just about networking- there is a great emphasis on relaxing and having fun. Something blogger meet ups can sometimes forget. Take a look at the first one here: http://www.feelingstylish.co.uk/the-eabloggerparty/
FABB Events https://www.facebook.com/fabbevents
The first thing we love about FABB events is the fact they cater for bloggers all over the country! Focusing on fashion and beauty, organisers Tor from www.thatspeachy.com and Ray from www.ohwhoisshe.com set up these regional events to help bloggers in their genre connect and meet- you can even suggest event destinations! We’ll be doing an interview with these guys in the near future so stay tuned for more information!
East Midlands Meet Up by Emma Louise of http://www.notyouraverage.co.uk
After feeling that the East Midlands was lacking in blogger events, Emma Louise decided to set up her own for the region! Uniquely you must be living and blogging in the area to attend this. Emma’s last event was held a couple of months ago- but there may be a Christmas event so keep an eye on her twitter account for info!
