After weeks of waiting, the day finally came to head down to London for the Cosmo Superblogger Masterclass event. Excited, was not the word. I previously had been to an Editors Talk with Louise Court from Cosmo, and also the editors of Zest, Company and Red. I found it enjoyable, however I thought this would be more up my street. The fact that one of my favourite YouTubers/bloggers was going to be there (Fleur De Force), made it even better.
The chat was fairly informal and lasted around 1 1/2 hours. Hosted by Kate Lucey from Cosmo, she fired questions at the panel. Everything talked about was geared towards blogging. Ways to improve your blog, market and monetise. The talk I had been to before seemed to be more relevant to those wanting to work within the magazine industry and journalism, however this was Blog Central! Perfect.
RocknRoll Bride (Kat; the lady with the pink hair) was very entertaining and inspiring. She has a wedding blog and also runs a ‘BlogAcademy’ Home School course, you register and each course is around $20. I cannot wait to get stuck into some of the courses; they range from basic to more advanced, so there is something for everyone. I met some really great bloggers, some who I tweet all the time, it was lovely to put a face to each blog, especially as they all seemed so nice. Check out Little Miss Katy and Jasmin.
It was a great evening, starting with bubbly and leaving with a jam-packed goodie bag, lots of tips and new websites to check out, to help us progress our blogs. I even got a little star-struck when I met Fleur. I have watched her YouTube channel for years and am an avid reader of her blog. I really admire how she has turned her little space on the internet into such a successful job. She seems as nice in person, as she does when you are watching her channel in your front room. She must have thought I was a complete moron!
It was a great evening, enjoyed by everyone and a roaring success, I just wish it could have lasted a little longer. I cannot wait until the next one!
