The Salon is a meetup for bloggers and influencers where there are no barriers to attend, no obligations to meet for brands and no pressure. We hope to share knowledge and information within the group, as well as having fun and making friends!
The origins of the Salon come from an event series held in the UK called #blogclub. #blogclub was set up in January 2014 to bring bloggers together without any requirements from them – a space where they could get together, discuss important topics, ask questions and learn from each other. Some events were held in conjunction with companies who were happy to provide some educational details, and attendees learnt about running their own small business, how to use Google Analytics and how to use SEO to attract readers to their site.
Events typically took place after work during in the week or at the weekends, making it more accessible to those bloggers and influencers who do this in their spare time. The average number of attendees was between 15-25 per event – purposefully kept small to encourage more meaningful connections.
We hope to do the same in Seattle, bringing together bloggers and influencers for events to educate them and to bring the community together in real life, because we all recognise that is one of the most useful things to do!
