It’s been an action-packed week — with multiple events that have provided much-needed distractions from work craziness and dating doldrums.
The post-nine to five fun kicked off Tuesday, with Single Edition Media’s Bloggers Break-Night Out at Rare hair salon in Tribeca. While sipping some delicious pisco cocktails, I joined a few dozen fabulous fellow bloggers – including Jess Downey, Taylor Cast and Liza of Off Market Girl – in watching Rare’s talented team transform @nesbizzle.
Liza told me what she doesn’t miss about being in single in her native South Carolina (the trend of going from college to marriage), while Single Edition founder Sherri Langburt told everyone about all of the company’s resources available to bloggers. Members of Single Edition’s blogger network have access to workshops in advertising, PR and media training, not to mention plenty of fabulous networking opportunities. It’s a great community to be a part of, so if you’re a single blogger, check it out.
Sherri talked about how much the network has grown since launching about a year ago, with big brands finally beginning to recognize that single consumers are just as valuable as any other demographic.
The event’s yummy sponsors clearly know that. Rustic Crust teamed up with American Flatbread to serve delicious pizzas that tasted anything but pre-made. Antioxidant-loaded energy drink Bai offered a boost with samples of three different flavors (peach was my favorite).
Up next…inside Urban Girl Squad’s latest mingling event and a college mini-reunion to remember.
