Blogging can be a lonely activity - for every fun event out and about, there is also the time needed planning, shooting, editing content which is, more often than not, a solo pursuit. As an introvert I wanted to create a space for folks to come together in a relaxed and informal way. While I love the work collaborations and friendships that spring up from more official networking events, the nature of these socials often leaves me feeling overwhelmed and nervous. By keeping the guest list to around 10-12 people, our socials allow for everyone to feel at ease. It was also a goal of mine to use the socials to grow my own friendship circle, and by partnering with a different blogger or creative for each event, we are putting collaboration and community right at the heart of it all.

Last year I hosted three wonderful socials with three amazing bloggers, and it was such a joy to have a peek into their worlds! A happy group meandered around Hastings with Jeska (Lobster & Swan), another group wandered the streets and shops of Brighton with Emma (A Quiet Style) and a smaller gang launched the whole idea of Gathered Cheer socials by enjoying a brunch with Teri (The Lovely Drawer).

Each social brought together a small group of friendly people, who were keen to venture out and explore a new area - finding treasures of shops, coffee shops and sights. Being guided by a local meant we got to see some otherwise hidden gems. By taking our time and allowing chance to walk, chat, shop, eat and drink the pace was relaxed and left us all feeling happy and topped up with creative ideas, having made new friends.

I'm thrilled that we now have two new social dates available to book onto now. Both are taking place in June, and promise to be wonderful, inspiring days. I've joined forces with some amazing bloggers/creatives and feel honoured that they are putting such a lot of time and hard work into making these socials brilliant.
