Food Blogger Connect 2014 - food, drink and friends

Last year I attended my first Food Blogger Connect conference for food bloggers.

Due to the high cost and the fact that not only did I not have any money spare but also could never have justified the expense to Mr R, I went as a helper.  

The experience convinced me that I wanted to attend this year as a full attendee. The fact that it was over the three days of my birthday weekend didn't go down well with the family however I made the decision to attend.

Every year they push the boundaries and invite speakers and well known bloggers and cook book writers to pass on their vast wealth of knowledge to us. For this I would like to say "thank you"!

What do we do all weekend? We eat ....
We drink ....
More eating and drinking .....
 
 
 
  
 



And we learn our craft and network with each other!




I would like to thank the organisers and helpers for making this a great weekend and look forward to knowing the dates for next year asap!

I was not paid to write this post and all opinions and photos are my own.
