have you heard of blog brunch? when i discovered it via august empress, i thought, how fun! in a nut shell, blog brunch is a live question and answer chat that takes place on twitter every first saturday of each month. hosted by two lovely bloggers, megan and ms. pink, people from all over the globe meet to discuss our favorite subject – blogging!
each month, they spotlight a different hot topic which allows bloggers of all sorts to network, ask questions, share information and most importantly- build relationships.
if you missed last month’s, you can catch up with this handy recap right here.
the next brunch is this saturday, may 5th at 1pm EST and 10 am PST. mark your calendars and join in- i’ll meet you there! and don’t forget to use the tag #blogbrunch
