    Welcome back! We’ve just launched our brand new website. We hope you like it. This is already the 3rd website in our short history. It all started in 2011 with a simple idea: Let’s meet the online world offline. Blogging was a hobby for many of us. And online friends became offline friends via Meet the Blogger*. The first event took place in a small hotel in Amsterdam with Holly Becker from Decor8 as our fantastic key-note. vtwonen as our sponsor and we had so much fun.   Bloggers became brands A lot has changes since the start in 2011. Bloggers became brands & businesses and the Meet the Blogger team evolved as well. In the past 7 years we hosted more than 25 national and international blogger events in Amsterdam, London, Stockholm, Barcelona and Copenhagen. In addition to our events, we started to receive requests from brands on how to work with social influencers. We started to help them and discovered a new vertical for Meet the Blogger. We have introduced Social Influencer Programs and Blogger Engagement Programs for many brands and nowadays this Influencer Marketing practice is growing rapidly. The future of Meet the Blogger After a great meeting with our team last February we came to the conclusion that it was time for a change of direction for Meet the Blogger. We continue to meet the online world offline with Meet the Blogger events. And we will extend our business to connect brands with the best social influencers with influencer marketing programs. In addition we will start to develop Digital strategies for brands. Our business model is based on a lean and mean organization with a network of freelancers combined with an ever growing community of social influencers. Whether you are a social influencer or a brand, we hope we will meet you in the near future!

My head is still spinning off with so much excellent information we got from all the speakers and places we have seen. And I finally met in person some of the bloggers I always wanted to Starry Blue Sky “I do make a point of trying to get to one or two of these type of events every year. It shakes you out of your familiar environment and routine and I always come away feeling recharged and buzzing with new ideas.” HOP Interiors: “Meet the Blogger never fails to exite, inspire and exceeds in fun shenanigans.” Avenue Lifestyle: “I attended the event in London in March just in time for the launch of Avenue Lifestyle, so I was thrilled that the event would be held a little closer to home this time, taking me to beautiful Amsterdam for a few days of connecting and being inspired.” JustK “It was a great, inspiring day attended by 120 lifestyle and interior bloggers.” Finding Dutchland “Attending the Meet the Blogger Amsterdam conference was like getting “baptized” into the world of blogging from the perspective of interior, design and lifestyle bloggers. There’s something magical that happens when you surround yourself with creative types. “ Blog Miliees “Het was een superleuke en leerzame dag, ik zit weer vol inspiratie qua styling en heb helemaal zin om weer wat vaker te gaan bloggen!

It was a great experience and I learned a lot from Wendy (beeldSTEIL) and AnoukB. We had to build a set and make a picture of it.
