I announced this yesterday on Twitter but I thought it deserved an entire blog post too. A few months ago I met with Steph and Rachel (fellow Columbus bloggers) about creating a blogging community in REAL life here in our lovely city. The idea slowly crept into my head early in 2012 out of a desire to teach and share. I still see that happening as this concept evolves but for now – we just want to meet, discuss and share a meal together. Rachel wrote the copy on our website and I just love it:
You eat meals, snacks, and coffee. You’re a blogger, Instagrammer, Pinner, or Twitterer. You want to marry your personal and Internet lives.
Our casual group grew from a desire to connect the central Ohio online personalities we converse with via social media in real life. We enjoy the collective experience of dining with new friends who don’t think a thing of interrupting a meal to snap an Instagram or organize a mentor relationship via DMs. Let’s Do Brunch welcomes the vibrant energy of newer bloggers, the leadership of experienced social media users, and everyone in between.
This is open to anyone in the area that wants to meet real, authentic people….while eating delicious brunch-y food. You are welcome – no matter who you are. Female, male, new to blogging or an experienced writer. Our first kickoff event will take place on Sunday, November 18th at 11am at Brothers Drake Meadery. Bring a meal to share and some ideas too. RSVP here so we know how many to accommodate for.
Let’s Do Brunch, Columbus!
