Strangers to Friends: MN Blog Con 2015 Recap

My favorite day of the year has come and gone. This was my fourth time attending the Minnesota Bloggers Conference and every year is better and better!

St Kates MBA MN Blog Con

This year I wasn’t able to attend until lunch time. I was bummed to miss the first sessions, but quickly feel into the conference rhythm tweeting and saying hi to friends that I don’t see as often as I would like.

Attending this year was a relief that I am doing exactly the things I should be. I’m not interested in monetizing my blog, but I am interested in meeting new people and experiencing new things, and that is ok. Therefore this year my recap doesn’t include some huge takeaways. Not because they weren’t available, they most definitely were, but because I just needed a day to see people I don’t get to see very often.

Urban Growler MN Blog Con After Party

New this year was an official after party at Urban Growler, which I loved! The upstairs room was packed and warm with all the body heat, but when you get a free beer, you don’t complain!

Urban Growler Beers

I heard amazing things about the cowbell cream ale, but picked the city day for myself, and loved it! As for the Delovely Porter, Urban Growler shares a roof with a coffee place, and apparently can add a shot of cold press if requested!

Thank you to Jen and Mykl for putting on an amazing event, and to all the volunteers and sponsors who assist them.

P.S. If you want to see my evolution as a blogger, here are my 2012, 2013 and 2014 recaps!

  1. Yes! I agree, I definitely was there more for the connections than anything else – it was definitely worth my time to be there! I’m bummed I didn’t get to see you longer, but I’m glad we bumped into each other for a few minutes!
