Two weeks ago I was in Amsterdam for Meet the Blogger 2012, and since then I’ve been trying to write a post about it whilst travelling in Italy, begging for votes for my headboard design and trying to squeeze in some time for the blogging your way course.
Yesterday I realised that I was pretty much regurgitating the same stuff my two friends and companions for the trip, Sam and Mary had already written about beautifully on their blogs. So rather than writing a full post, when I’m so keen to tell you all about the other fun stuff I’ve been up to since then, I decided to do an overview post.
Meet the blogger was held at the impressive Conservatorium Hotel. I’m not sure it was the best venue for a conference, but would definitely stay there in the future. Sam wrote the following post about the hotel, her fabulous photos really capture the mood of the place.
The event itself was only half a day, which was a shame, but they packed lots in. The highlight for me was the keynote speaker Frida Ramstedt of Trendenser. I’m completely in awe of, and inspired by Frida, she is living proof of what can be done if you put your mind to it. This quote, taken from one of her slides is the main thing I took away with me.

The rest of the weekend was spent exploring the city, mostly by Segway! Mr S has been trying to get me on a Segway for years, but it took the peer pressure of the group to finally get me to try it. Here’s a little video that Mr S made, for you to laugh at :) Hope you had a great weekend everyone!
