My talented friend Jaclyn Carlson (of the Little Paper Trees blog) is launching a cool new concept called Blog Society and I was flattered when she asked me to speak on a panel at its launch. Even more exciting, this is happening as part of the fabulous Vivid Sydney festival (the one with the amazing light shows and fab events).
Jaclyn describes Blog Society as “a long awaited community for Australian bloggers, creatives and the endlessly curious to connect, collaborate and share.” The launch also includes an afternoon workshop, where you’re invited to join an ever growing community of Australian lifestyle/design bloggers to learn from and inspire one another.
Myself and Vivian Mansour of Ish & Chi blog, will be sharing our blogging stories before breaking into smaller groups to explore the art of digital storytelling. Then there’s a hands-on, informal styling and photography workshop by Natalie Hayllar from Eat Read Love blog, photographer Madeline Johnson from Mr & Mrs Johnson and photographer Emma Scamell.
Bring your camera, ask questions and enjoy a fun and casual setting perfect for collaboration, networking and inspiration.
Jaclyn adds: “Blog Society aims to nurture and encourage collaboration by bringing together a community of bloggers ready to reach out and share ideas through the art of digital story telling or, as we more commonly know it today, blogging.”
The event’s on 8 June at the MCA. Tickets are $45. Book now.
