Stockholm 01 + Meet the Blogger

As I may have mentioned in a previous post, I spent last weekend in Stockholm attending Meet The Blogger– a conference where bloggers get together to meet and learn from other bloggers and talk about blogger things.  You might think I’m joking here, but it was really nice to be in a room with so many like minded people from in and around Europe.

Let’s get personal for a second:  I”ve been blogging since 2008.  Blogging is a creative outlet and a window into a person’s head.  I absolutely love sharing what I find, what I like, and where I travel.

While there is a virtual community around blogging, for the most part it is a rather solitary endeavour.  In reality, most of the people in my life do not blog.  I could probably count on one hand how many bloggers I know in person.

Attending Meet the Blogger in Stockholm turned my virtual community of bloggers into reality. I put faces to  “words,” “images,” and “recipes” of the blogs I read and I also got to meet a slew of new people.   It was a really cool experience (a first for me).

I took a lot of pictures over the weekend (too many to process all at once) so I will break them up into smaller, more digestible themes in future posts.

Here is a birds eye view of my 48 hour adventure.

Stockholm MTBS and CPH4

{The architecture in Stockholm was quite diverse and different to Copenhagen}  Next time I return, I want to go on an architecture tour to learn more about the time periods and design in which the buildings were constructed.

Stockholm MTBS and CPH5

{There are a lot of sweets in Stockholm- From candy, and chocolate covered things to cinnamon buns, you don’t have to walk very far to find sugar!!}

Stockholm MTBS and CPH6

{This is a city is cold- but beautiful in February!  Particularly with all the water running throughout the islands.  Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr}

Stockholm MTBS and CPH1

{These pictures were taken at the conference on Saturday- you’ll see the welcome screen, Will from Bright Bazaar and Toni and Thea from Sister Mag}

Stockholm MTBS and CPH2

{This was one of the washroom interiors in my hotel (Scandic Hotel Grand Central, which I thought was neat as well as a shot of some of the wall art on our floor}

Stockholm MTBS and CPH3

{Lots of awesome design stores to discover in Stockholm- you definitely need more than 48 hours to walk around and explore}

More to come on the design and the food but for now- it was a pleasure to meet: JoelixStylizimo, Kickcan & Conkers, Vosges Paris, IDA Interior Lifestyle, Bloesem, Sister Mag. ElceStockholm, Arianna Interiors, Swoon Worthy, Eclectic Trends, Haus Stylish, It’s a House, and Just Kirsten (so many others……)

Have a great weekend, whatever you are doing.

Oh yeah- I forgot to mention, if you aren’t following over on Countlan magazine– Issue 03 is well underway and due out in April!  I am very excited and happy to work with so many enthusiastic new contributors.
