Last weekend I and many other digital storytellers made our way to Berlin from all corners of the world (Literally!) to get together at The #Hive15 - a gathering of digital storytellers, tastemakers & bloggers.
Big and small blogs, company representatives, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, publishing companies...even Haribo and Lego were represented (which made me insanely happy, cos those two are probably my ALL TIME favourites)!
I met wonderful inspiring people, even tho I missed a few I wanted to meet (next year right?) We learnt about branding, social media strategies, building our readership, the creative process of publication houses, had very interesting talks during lunch time with the hands behind Baked it
, and even played the role of "Editor in Chief" of a renowned German magazine. It was a exhilarating, inspiring, motivational, and ridiculously fun!
Either way, I'm not here today to tell you all about my experience, because I think Kaffe und Kuchen
and The Slow Pace
have pretty much said everything I wanted to say in their awesome posts about #Hive15.
Instead, I've decided to compile some of the most interesting and relevant tweets from the weekend, because what is a Digital Storytellers, Tastemakers, and Bloggers event without an ocean of tweets, instagrams, and the one or two Facebook and Google+ posts? Nothing! So, here we go!
After a successful date, you don't want your blog readers to sneak away in the morning. You want them to stay for breakfast. #hive15
Find your best competitors. Compare & spark your passion. Don't get discouraged but learn from them. Get inspired. - @cocorrina #Hive15
As women of the internet we have to be courageous and spread good energy. Inspirational closing words from @heynataliejean #hive15
Did I miss any? do you have any other blogging tips? Please share them with me down in the comments section! :) Now, all I have left to say is:
BE CONSISTENT, BE DIFFERENT, BE FRIENDLY, and BE YOURSELF
That being said, I leave you with a beautiful sunset by the Brandenburger Tor I took on Friday!
