Highlights From Our LHJ Get Social Event

October 30, 2013 at 11:59 am , by

The team at LHJ recently hosted nearly 100 top bloggers for our first-annual LHJ Get Social event in New York City. We spent the day hearing from amazing speakers, learning lots of great tactics to boost our personal brands and businesses, and getting so inspired by the creative, talented, amazing women who joined us for the day. (And we can’t forget that our sponsors and partners shared some great info—and let’s be honest, fun swag—too.) We had such a great day we just had to share some highlights.

Our Editor-in-Chief Sally Lee kicked off the day.

Joy from Joy the Baker shared her secret recipe for blog success. (The not-so-secret ingredient truly was tons of hard work and persistence.)

Kendi from Kendi Everyday reminded us all to worry less about what’s next and focus more on what’s right now. (Plus she spilled the details on opening a brick-and-mortar store.)

Then after a delicious lunch we heard from our book panel, Lisa Cain aka Snack Girl (whose first book comes out in April), book agent Susanna Einstein and book editor Whitney Frick. They gave us some real behind-the-scenes info on how to get noticed by agents and publishers and the process of translating a blog to a book.

To end our day, Gabrielle Bernstein shared her inspiring story and some excellent advice for taking a blog business to the next level by building deep relationships with fans and followers.

And then we got to chat, share ideas, and swap business cards over wine and snacks!

It was such an inspiring day, we’re already thinking about ways to make it even better for next year. If you missed our live tweets and posts, check out all the social action at #LHJgetsocial on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. And stay tuned for information on next year’s event.
