Last week I was invited to meet up with bloggers from around the city. It was the brainchild of Memphis Blogger, Gizell of Blueprint Black Ink, with hopes of creating a group of local bloggers where we can come together to network and collaborate. I think it’s something that will great for Memphis and the blogging community. We were greeted by sweet confections from Muddy’s Bake Shop & Phillip Ashley Chocolates. And of course, there was wine, which pretty much makes everything great!
The meeting was held in the Memphis Fashion Design Network building, which is a super cute space created to support and cultivate local designers.
It was a pleasure meeting other local bloggers from many different areas, including a vegan lifestyle blogger, parenting bloggers, and even a project management blogger there! We received an awesome pep talk from Mr. Willy Wonka himself, Phillip Ashley Rix, about branding as a creative.
According to Q, networking is essential to building businesses and brands. Being around like minded individuals who are as inspiring as they are cool will contribute to growth, both personally and professionally. Look out! ATQ, is on the move!
Cheers to building a brand and making new blogger buddies!
