Back from an amazing weekend in Berlin, where I attended the awesome blogging conference The Hive. If you’re a blogger and you haven’t heard of it, you need to check it out! It’s full of inspirational talks and workshops - all dealing with central blogging themes
After teaching a food photography workshop last year, I decided to take it easy this year and check out what others have to share.
I really enjoyed the energetic “How to monetize your blog” talk by Desiree of Vosgesparis, a real rockstar on stage – not only because of her ace leather jacket. It was also nice to hear Deborah Beau of Kickcan & Conkers talk about how to grow your community. But foremost it was amazing meeting the inspiring Dietlind Wolf, who gave us an insight into her styling workflow. It was really nice to see how playful, yet organized, she approaches every shoot.
The real pleasure of returning to The Hive was to reconnect with some great bloggers though, some of whom have become real friends by now. On that note a big wave to Thea and Toni of Sistermag, Yvonne who’s organized The Hive, Ina - the best media law specialist out there, Anna Sternthaler, Jillian of Jillian in Italy, Jenni Fuchs of Museum Diary and also nice to meet Mia, who I’ve been following on Instagram for a while. Oh and a big hola to Jael of The Sweetest Brunch, who was my partner in crime for the entire weekend!
