New Meet & Greet Venue!

Today we have some exciting news! Blogger Interactive has been growing. As more people get involved and spread the word, more attendees are hitting that RSVP button. Because of this, our original venue for the Friday night welcome mixer could not accommodate a group of our size. We do, however thank Swift’s Attic for being so open to working with us.

So where are we all going to meet for the first time? We are thrilled to announce that 508 Tequila Bar in downtown Austin will be welcoming us with open arms!

508 tequila barLocated on 8th & Red River, the site of 508 Tequila Bar and Pelon’s Tex Mex carries a rich history in the great city of Austin as it was formerly Jaime’s Spanish Village for over 40 years. 508 Tequila Bar specializes in unique craft Tequila cocktails, and it is the perfect place to taste a range of Mexican tequilas. With a casual atmosphere and outdoor seating, 508 is the perfect place for us to all hug it out when we arrive in Austin. They also have a street parking lot for those of you driving, and authentic Tex Mex eats at Pelon’s should you chose to grub while you mingle!

Be sure to check out 508 on Facebook for more photos and directions. Give them a thumbs up with the Like button for supporting Blogger Interactive and welcoming our bunch! And don’t worry if you can’t make it by 8 o’clock on Friday. We will have just as much fun getting to know one another on Saturday night as well at The Hangar Lounge.

Is everyone as excited as we are?

Blogger Interactive is in Full Force

Those of you who follow Becca from 25toFly and Jen from Sips of Jen and Tonic know that there has been some serious buzz about a blogger meetup going on for the past few months. The event was proposed, locations and dates were thrown out, and a vote was taken. Excitement ensued.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, the idea for an event like this came about after we kept seeing blog posts detailing meet ups between individual bloggers. That got us to wondering if there was a way to get all of our favorite people in the same place at the same time. It was then we decided to create a larger event to help more bloggers connect beyond their URLs.

In honor of the awesomeness of this event, we decided to give Blogger Summit (formerly Blogger Meetup) a major makeover, and are excited to announce the launch of the official Blogger Interactive site!

We created this space to house all information and updates regarding our first annual event in Austin, TX this October 25-27th. This is where attendees and supporters can come to keep updated on the who, what, when, where, and how of the big weekend. We also want to use this space to showcase our lovely participants; get acquainted through our forums, and give us suggestions and feedback on what you want to see at Blogger Interactive 2013 and future Blogger Interactive events.

This event is completely open to all bloggers, prospective bloggers, and friends and supporters of bloggers everywhere. Our attendee list is growing, but there is no cut off for the number of people who can attend. Just be sure to RSVP through our official E-vite so that we have an estimate of the number of people who plan on hanging out with us in Austin.

Don’t forget to:

  • Follow this blog (either through WordPress or by e-mail)
  • Fan us on Facebook
  • Follow us on Twitter
  • Show your support by grabbing the Blogger Interactive badge from the sidebar, and sharing it on your site

Check out our Event Details page for information and updates on lodging suggestions, and tentative itinerary plans. Feel free to leave comments or shoot us an e-mail through our Contact page for questions and/or suggestions, or if you are interested in getting involved as an official sponsor of Blogger Interactive.

Welcome again, and thanks for helping us make this the go-to blog event this year. We can’t wait to meet all of you!
