Event: Cape Town Blog Meet Up

Hi everyone,

The first Saturday of the month of June, I was invited to a blog meetup planned by the Blog Addict. We met up at the gorgeous four-star Onze Rust Guesthouse in Stellenbosch.

The aim of these blogger meets is for bloggers to interact with each other face to face and not just virtually. I must admit that I stuck to my normal "blogger clique", which was really terrible of me, but I did meet some bloggers that I haven't met in person before.

On arrival, we were greeted by the lovely Fathima. We briefly chatted while she gave us our name tags and showed us towards the sparkling white grape juice and cheese platter.

Kayli Vee, Siyaam and Zahrah took us through their blogging experience over the years that they've been blogging. It was interesting to hear someone elses journey. What I collected from them was that blogging isn't an easy thing and that you really have to be committed so that you can deliver good content to your readers.

We were taken around the guesthouse by the humble, Esther Bezuidenhout, where she shared the background of the guesthouse and some fun facts as well. I gathered that Esther is a very humble and caring individual. 

After we failed a mirror selfie, we were treated to yummy snacks, desserts and gifts. Blog Addict and the amazing sponsors really spoiled us with gorgeous gifts! I could not stop going back to the mini chocolate fountain because chocolate hugs my insides with love.

The highlight of the day was bloggers coming together and giving back to a good cause. We were asked to donate items to the Saartjie Baartman Center and it was so good to see bloggers carrying boxes and carrier bags FULL of goodies for the ladies and children at the Saartjie Baartman Center. There will be a handover on the 23rd of August 2014 and if you would like to contribute anything then please DM Blog Addict on Twitter and let them know :)
