If you have just started a blog and are looking for advice on how to nurture it's growth, or if you are already an established blogger and feel the need to start optimising your potential, then listen up!
Handpicked Media are holding an event just for you... 'Handpicked Media Gets Social' is a one day event dedicated to everything social media. It is being held on Monday 21st November at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London and sponsored by Shu Uemura, Kiehls and Biotherm amongst others (Click here for the full list of sponsors).
The day is designed to offer you some of the best advice on encouraging the growth of your blog and how best to engage and form relationships with brands, coming from industry professionals and bloggers alike. You can see the full schedule here, with highlights including Rebecca Miskin from Hearst discussing the future of print in an online world, Jane Cunningham (aka BritishBeautyBlogger) putting forward her 'rules of engagement' for PRs and Bloggers and a session with Garry Davis focused on improving your blog traffic.
There will also be two blogger panel sessions discussing anything and everything you want to know about the blogging world: one for Fashion blogging and the other for Beauty. I'm very excited (and flattered!) to be taking part in the latter, along with the lovely Jen Riley from ABeautyJunkieinLondon, Emma from TheBeautyButton and Lee Kynaston aka 'TheGroomingGuru'.
The event is open to bloggers and agencies alike, so the day will also be the perfect opportunity to meet and get to know fellow bloggers, and network with brands.
If you'd like to attend, you can purchase tickets here (priced at £75 per person). I do however, have two tickets to giveaway to any budding bloggers out there. All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to leave a comment on this post telling me why you'd like to attend, and include a link to your blog. I will pick the winners based on their answers and blog content, and will announce them on the 20th October.
Entry closes on 19th October midnight GMT. One comment per blog entry please. Please ensure you are free to attend on the 21st November before you enter! (it's in the daytime). Image: graur codrin / FreeDigitalPhotos.net
