Next Blogger Network Workshop

Yesterday I had the pleasure of being invited to the Next Blogger Network Workshop in the beautiful Apartment at The Hoxton Hotel! This was an amazing opportunity to meet fellow bloggers, mingle with Next and check out their Christmas Collection and learn how to improve our own platforms with the help of some famous online faces! I love the relationship that Next has with the blogging community so this was a lovely event to be a part of! It was also my first blogger event, so I was a tiny bit nervous but so excited!

After meeting everyone (and getting a lovely goody bag!) we split up for our blogger masterclasses! First up, I had a Photography and Film workshop with Kit from Style Slicker, Lily Pebbles and and Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup. Next was SEO & Web Design with Faye Kent and Diego Puglisi and lastly, Brand and Advertising with Emily from Fashion Foie Gras and Abi Marvel.

The workshops gave a great insight into the history of each speaker's blog and invaluable tips on how to make mine better. I have to say that I was particularly impressed with the Brand and Advertising workshop, in particular, the success of Abi Marvel at only 21! For those that don't know, Abi started her blog in 2008 and has progressed to a fashion and media icon and entrepreneur - through her events company  The Apartment. It goes to show that if you have no limits and give it your everything, you can achieve anything you want.

In between each workshop, we were treated to some beautiful food and a tuck shop (which was pretty much raided by the time I got to it!)

There were also a series of competitions running through the day and I actually won one! Thanks to some Snapchat Bingo I have a £100 gift card to spend in Next! Be sure to keep reading my page to see what I bought!

The workshop was amazing and I learned so much! My page is probably going to be a bit of a mess in the next few days as I take on board all the advice I was given and give my blog a big face lift! There is a huge list of edits that I planned on the train home in my goody bag notebook!

Thank you so much Next for an amazing day and I definitely think you should host another workshop soon!
