It may seem strange that the first meet up of Oxfordshire Bloggers took place in London, but then it was unplanned. Britmums Live is such a big event it is not really a surprise that lots of bloggers based in Oxfordshire decided to attend, and it was by chance that I met some of them among the 700 attendees.
I love meeting other bloggers, but I doubly love meeting local bloggers. The bloggers in Oxfordshire cover a wide range of topics so it is great to be able to chat across several niches over some drink or food; and to meet an award winning blogger based in the county – Caroline at My daughter won’t sleep.
With Susanna, Co-Founder of BritMums Live (if you’re wondering I’m looking at Susanna’s phone and not just gaze into the distance)
Here are some posts describing the event from some Oxfordshire bloggers:

Planning an Oxfordshire event
Oxfordshire Bloggers hasn’t been around for long, but we are already promoting over 40 blogs through our twitter account, so that means there are many more local bloggers to meet. And next time, we want to meet locally.
We have already started discussing ideas, so if you are a blogger in Oxfordshire please come and join the Facebook group so you can get involved as well. And don’t forget to register on this site as well as it is open for guest posts from all Oxfordshire based bloggers.
We are also happy to hear from organisations who maybe able to help us arrange our event, such as a venue, we are happy to consider all suggestions (well as long as they are in Oxfordshire).
P.S. I remember telling several people that I’m going to be nominated for the Brilliance in Blogging Social Media award, for Oxfordshire Bloggers. Yes I’d had some wine, but hey if I start my campaign with a year to go, maybe it will happen!
