Food Bloggers Connect (aka #fbc5)

With such a jam-packed 3 days of lectures, girl-crushes, networking, eating scrummy food and talking incessantly about blogging, I’m not sure I will be fully recovered for another week or so. At least.

I’ve never really been to Battersea/Clapham properly (bar to nose around the Battersea power station, run around the park in neon and go to the Foodie festival) so it was great to have a proper, daytime look around. Our venue was the Battersea Arts Centre, and it made my little heart swoon.

 

 

  

 

 

 

My favourite thing about the conference? Meeting so many lovely fellow bloggers, who totally understand the all-encompassing world that is deciding to start a blog, and learning lots of stuff.

 This is two hours AFTER the last lecture of the evening…

 

Our keynote Speaker David Lebovitz was hilarious and so much mischief, photographer Penny de Los Santos was just amazing, and I made so many new blog friends.

The theme for the year was community, and we certainly formed a multi-nation, multi-topic blog selection including the below ladies;

Nicky – Baking Beardy / Morgan – Peaches Please / Dannii – Hungry Happy Healthy

Hannah – The Littlest Bake House / Magda – Midnight Spoon

Claire – Claire Bakes / Laura – Foodie Laura / Ceri – Natural Kitchen

Iris – Whatever Gets You Through The Day

 

There were hiccups, yes, and it felt a little brand heavy at times but overall it was such a positive experience that I’m really glad I got over my initial nervousness at meeting everyone and went.

Unsurprising as it was a Foodie conference it felt like we nibbled from sun-down to sun-up. Every time we had a break there was another new delectation to enjoy.

There may have also been a few beverages, but who’s counting?

I’m almost becoming a little bit English, and in a perverse way enjoyed the queueing – it was another opportunity to meet more bloggers.

Can’t wait until next year.
