First Beyond The Screens Athens Blogger Meetup

Sunday afternoon I went to the first Beyond the Screens Athens blogger meetup. It was really cool to meet the real life people behind some of the Athens-based blogs I read. It was a mix of all types of bloggers from lifestyle to book blogs.


Bloggers are a strange group of people because most people aren't bloggers - at least most don't intend on building a reader base or pumping out regular content. Only bloggers really understand blogging, that's why it was so neat to actually meet some in real life! I had no idea there were so many of us in Athens. There still aren't all that many style bloggers here, but maybe having this group will inspire some people to start a blog!

Here's Alex Laughlin, the girl who came up with this fantastic idea and organized everything. Check out her post about the meetup.

Me creeping and then I stopped because I wanted to pay attention to what people were saying instead of sneak photographing.


Avid Bookshop was such a great venue for this. There are so many nice local shops in Athens that I haven't visited yet. I'll definitely be going back to browse over all the books. We even had snacks, which included pumpkin cupcakes, so that was pretty great. 

Anyway, Alex did a great job getting this group started and I'm excited for the next meetup!
