Last weekend on November 6, 2010 I attended the Discovering Mas Los Angeles Latina Bloggers Luncheon. The luncheon was organized by Monique from Blogs By Latinas (also from Curves & Chaos). Although it was not a fashion related blog event, there were some fashion bloggers in attendance. I wanted to share this event because it was a great learning and networking experience. The day consistent of a lovely lunch at the Marie Callendar's in LA, 2 guest speakers, 40 awesome Latina bloggers and lots of swag. The speakers were Jennifer Vides and Wally Sabria who gave us tips for branding our selves and blogs, as well as how to use social media to help our blogs grow. Using social media tools and networking with fellow bloggers are the keys to a successful blog. Meeting other Latina bloggers was very insprining. Some ladies are doing amazing things with their blogs, brands and some have even made it their full time jobs! A few ladies were there to learn and wanting to start their blogs, it was nice to give them some advice on what I and other bloggers have learned. For me it has been a trial and error process and would have loved to have gotten some tips from more experienced bloggers. So I was more than happy to give some tips and advice to some of the new bloggers. I don't claim to be an expert but I think I have good info to share. Over all it was a successful event and so happy I was a part of it. Oh yeah and the sway bags rocked, they were so heavy and full of great products. I still haven't been able to go through it all!
Thank you to all the sponsors, the speakers Jennifer Vides & Wally Sabria and Monique of Blogs By Latinas for making all possible. Here's a little video I have to share of the event. For pictures from the event please check out my Flickr page here. Enjoy!
