Blogst 2013 - Speaking At The German Blogger Conference



It seems that the weeks before the festive holidays need to be pretty busy and packed with schedules, not only gift shopping. In between all my trips I'm trying to take you with me and share some precious moments of happiness with you. Thus, I want to share with you my participation as a speaker at the German blogger conference Blogst two weekends ago. I was invited to speak on the topic of 'Social Media Personality' and I was thrilled and a bit nervous to speak in front of 180 passionate bloggers. But from the very first moment at the conference it proved that my nervousness was absolutely out of place. And if you wonder what my presentation was all about, check out the fabulous impromptu sketch note made by blogger Frau Hölle during my presentation. So fab!





Blogst is an annual blogger conference founded and organized by my two blogger friends Ricarda and Clara and has received high appraisal among the German lifestyle blogger crowd - Blogst is most popular among interior design, DIY, and food bloggers. 



This year's conference was held in the Western German city of Essen in a pretty urban and artsy event location called Unperfekthaus. It had a sort of rough Berlin edge to it. Everything was perfectly organized and supported by numerous sponsors, I met some good old blogger friends as well as charming new ones. But I was not only speaking there, I was also there to learn from other experienced bloggers. I listened carefully to the keynote by the ever charming sisters Thea and Toni of Sister Magazine, I attended a Photoshop breakout session taught by Trixi and enjoyed every single presentation of the other speakers. 


The overall feeling that still lingers on is that Germany has a very warmhearted and inspiring lifestyle blogger community which is why the entire Blogst conference felt like a big annual blogger family meeting. The only question that remains: Will I see you next year at Blogst, too?

  6. Dein Vortrag war wirklich toll, ich hatte schon länger das Gefühl, ich muss diese ganzen Social Media Kanäle irgendwie besser ordnen und da hast Du mir sehr geholfen, langsam auf den richtigen Weg zu kommen. :)

    Und klar, ich bin 2014 auch dabei. Ich verpass doch keine Familientreffen. :)

    Liebe Grüße!
