Can you believe it’s been 1 year? The Orlando Bloggers chapter launched a year ago and has grown from 0 to close to 300 awesome members!
The Orlando Bloggers chapter is thriving and growing because of YOU! We believe in kind collaboration, never competition, and the Orlando creative community has spread the spirit of working together instead of against each other.
We celebrated our anniversary at the chic and delicious Bulla Gastrobar in Winter Park with their unique and tasty appetizers and cocktails.
The beautiful ladies behind Lil Epic Design provided a gorgeous flower backdrop perfect for photos to capture our momentous occasion.
We had a fun giveaway where each of you expressed words of inspiration on how the creative community in Orlando has helped shape where you are today.
The following are a few encouraging words from some of our winners of how The Orlando Bloggers (or other blogging communities) have inspired them:
“From being part of the Orlando Bloggers, I’ve learned – collaboration over competition. When I first started blogging, I thought I needed to compete, but I don’t! We are all here to help each other, which is AWESOME! – Hanny
“Learned how to incorporate personality with my blog and Instagram” – Shelly
“I’m a newbie blogger, but already seeing and meeting creative and passionate people makes me wanna continue.” – Lynnette
“You guys have done amazing! Thanks for putting this group together. I have learned so much, and it has been a great place to get motivation and meet like-minded people.” – Jenniffer
“Authentic community.” – Tiffany
Jeanette Johnson from Js Everyday Fashion was our honorary guest speaker and she shared her journey as an award-winning blogger, published author, speaker, and entrepreneur.
Jeanette’s words of wisdom were enlightening and we all left inspired to continue to follow our bliss and work hard to achieve our dreams.
Our celebration was bittersweet as I said “good-bye” as the senior chapter officer and passed the baton over to Jazmin Rojas, the Orlando Bloggers Senior Chapter officer for the 2018-2019 year.
The new chapter officer team, including Cassandra Culley and Alex Dimovski, shares the same passion for kind collaboration and it’s exciting to see how together they will help take The Orlando Bloggers chapter to new heights!
Thank you to all of our sponsors that helped make our 1 year anniversary be a true celebration!
And a special thank you to all of you for sharing in our growth as a group and as individuals!
“Alone we go fast, but together we go far”
