my first networking event

This past Wednesday I attended my first networking event, ever!

I had recently decided to join the PHL Bloggers group (because I’m from Philly, duh), but wasn’t actively participating in any of their events. It’s one thing to engage with people on the internet in blogging Facebook groups, but another entirely to actually meet up with people in person! What if they didn’t think I was as cool as social media told them I was?!

I somehow convinced myself to actually attend the networking at The Baker’s Jar event I RSVP’d for ($5 for a mason jar of sweets and new friends?? sold). I biked to the location, and after locking my bike, almost immediately unlocked it to turn around and leave, because of a crazy fit of social anxiety. I’m so glad I forced myself through it though, because it was fun! View Post
