Back to School with Portland Bloggers Event Recap

Back to School with Portland Bloggers Event RecapToday, in the midst of strong thunderstorms, high gusts of wind, and a record-setting amount of rainfall this weekend, I ventured out to attend the Portland Bloggers September Meetup: Back to School with Portland Bloggers.

Back to School with Portland Bloggers Event RecapWe took over Studio Space in SW Portland for the 2-and-a-half hour presentation on Making Money Blogging (#makemoneyblogging, which you might have seen mentioned on @PDXBloggers Twitter feed throughout ;-)       Back to School with Portland Bloggers Event RecapWith drinks sponsored by Black Rock Coffee Bar and yummy snacks, we were treated to presentations from Jenni, the founder of Portland Bloggers (from AWellCraftedParty.com), Suzannah (AdventuresinDressmaking.com) and Bee (TheSpicyBee.com). We also had the pleasure of hosting CPA Jackie Wheatley from Rainbow Tax & Accounting who offered up some great advice about accounting for bloggers, Kim from Todays Creative Blog who shared her own story of success in becoming a full-time professional blogger, and Tarun and Pepper from Recomonk who introduced Recomonk as a way to help consolidate affiliate links and recommended products into a single interface. (I jotted down a ton of great info to implement on my blog!)Back to School with Portland Bloggers Event RecapBack to School with Portland Bloggers Event RecapBack to School with Portland Bloggers Event RecapBack to School with Portland Bloggers Event RecapBack to School with Portland Bloggers Event RecapBack to School with Portland Bloggers Event RecapBack to School with Portland Bloggers Event RecapThere was so much useful information, “class photos” taken which will be turned into a “yearbook” online (and available for download soon from the Portland Bloggers website), free patterned notebooks, pencils, and M&M packs, delicious snacks (YUMM prosciutto and provolone rolls and dark chocolate almond bark!) and valuable time networking with other fellow bloggers (over 30 in all!). Overall it was a huge success as an event – and hopefully something we can repeat again later in the year for those who weren’t able to make it this time around.

Check out PDXBloggers.com/blog for the Powerpoint slides from the event in case you missed it (will be uploaded soon!) – or would like the information to have at your fingertips to review and keep on hand.

So glad to meet up with my fellow bloggers and Portland creatives – and hope to see you all again at the next event!

I volunteer with Portland Bloggers to do their graphic design, website design/maintenance, and video work, as well as attend events when they mesh with my schedule. Have any questions about blog-related branding/graphics/visual stuff? Send them my way and they can be addressed on the Portland Bloggers blog or in a future video tutorial!
