Yesterday evening Jenn and I got the train through to Glasgow for a meetup with some other Scottish bloggers. Huge thank you to Karris for organising the whole thing and getting everyone together! I had met some of the bloggers at previous meetups but there were also lots of new faces too. It was so nice to see everyone, even if I didn’t quite have time to get round and chat to you all! After the initial 5 minutes of awkwardness when you’re all introducing yourselves, it genuinely is just like you’re chatting to friends you’ve known for ages. If you’re thinking of going to a meetup but are a bit scared then honestly just go, I guarantee you will love it!
The event was held in Kuta, a really nice bar on Bath Street. I’d never been before but would definitely go back if I was looking for somewhere to go in Glasgow. They had lots of cheap cocktails – definitely the way to my heart! I’m all about the French Martinis these days. We all spent the evening chatting about blog-related stuff which our “real life” friends just don’t understand, as well as beauty, fashion, general life and twitter gossip! In one way I’m a little bit jealous of bloggers who live in London and get invited to lots of press events/product launches etc. but on the other hand I think I prefer these type of informal meetups which are organised by other bloggers and we just get to sit around all night chatting and drinking!
I’m going to attempt to link everyone who was there but I’m sure I will have missed a couple of people (unintentionally!) so please leave a comment if you were there too and I will add you in. For those of you who are non-Scottish bloggers, hopefully this will introduce you to a few new great blogs to follow!
I can’t wait for the next meetup; us Edinburgh bloggers will need to get our act together and organise an east-coast meetup soon!
Have you been to a blogger meet up before?
