Today I went to the IFB Emerging Influence Conference where I heard from Mattias Swenson from Bloglovin’, Phil Oh from Streetpeeper, Yuri Lee from Lookbook, Gala Darling who changed her real name to Gala Darling, Susie Lau from Style Bubble, BryanBoy , Emily Schumann from Cupcakes and Cashmere, Amy Odell from The Cut, and Rumi Neely and her boyfriend Colin from Fashion Toast.
It was amazing. I met so many great people including Wendy Brandes, Deanne from Dream Sequins, and a slew of other bloggers that I either read about, talked to online, or met for the first time! I also got to speak with BryanBoy in person. It was so funny because we have spoken online off and on since 2005 and we never got to meet in person. When I told him who I was he just hugged me and we had so much fun having a quick chat. I am know I keep saying this on and offline, but I am really happy meeting the people that I have spoken with for one or more years online.
Some KEY highlights and blogging tips from the conference:
“Don’t do anything you don’t stand for.” -Mattias Swenson
“Every post should have something of value.” -Yuri Lee
“If I’m not passionate about it, I don’t write about it.” -Susie Lau
“Less is more.” -Emily Schuman
