Disclaimer: I’m not trying to be controversial and I’m definitely not ‘complaining’, i’m just speaking from my recent observations, conversations with other bloggers and my mind!
Now i’m not sure about other bloggers/readers, but I feel as if the BB community is way too cliqued, with the most popular bloggers/gurus sorta segregating themselves away from those with ‘less’ followers/traffic etc, not to say they do it on purpose; I hope they don’t, but it’s just a trend i’ve been noticing on twitter/blogs etc and I think this causes a lot of upcoming bloggers to be a bit intimidated by them.
Not intimidated in regards to “omg they are really powerful and scary” but I have been talking to quite a few bloggers on this issue and a lot do feel a bit… hesitant to introduce themselves or talk to some of the popular bloggers because to be quite frank, it does sort of seem like some sort of secret club.
I’ve been blogging for nearly 2 years now and i’ve definately felt this way, sometimes still do; there are a few bloggers who i feel i’d really get on with and hang out with because they are just full of awesome..but I tend to feel a bit left out of the loop so I kind of back off I suppose (contrary to popular belief, I’m a bit shy lmao!) , which is why I think it’s AWESOME that London Beauty Queen has set up ‘The Only Way is Blogging’ event for ALL bloggers-regardless of popularity, whether you get invited to industry events or not, traffic etc, to come out for the day and meet other bloggers, chill, laugh and just have a gay ole’ time!
I was thinking about planning an event like this for lesser known bloggers but LBQ beat me to it haha!
The event will be taking place on the 16th of July in Holborn at noon! For further details and to RSVP, click here.
