5B: Believers in Better Beer, Bites, and Blogging
Last weekend I attended the first Cincinnati blogging conference called 5B: Believers in Better Beer, Bites, and Blogging. It was an inclusive event open to beer bloggers, food bloggers, and general lifestyle bloggers. I had only met two people in real life who were attending the event, and I was a little nervous. Would I bring anything to the table? Would the other attendees have much more advanced blogs than my own? It turns out most of the other attendees had the same concerns as me. We were all pleasantly surprised by what the conference offered us.
The word that lingers with me, even several days after the conference has wrapped, is community. I hope that feeling of being a part of something stays with me as I work to improve my blog and my presence in the food blog community.
Looking for some new blogs to follow? Might I recommend: Hounds in the Kitchen, Eat, Drink, and Be Married, Taste and See Cincinnati, Udandi.com, wine me dine me (in Cincinnati), Ginny Tonic's musings on the Charlie Tonic Hour website, The World in my Kitchen, What's Cookin' Now radio show, Fake Food Free, Eggplant To Go, Cookerati, and Hoperatives. There were even more bloggers in attendance that I really enjoyed meeting and I hope we all meet again soon!
