Weekend in Review: Portland Bloggers’ Meetup, goal making, blog design

Ahhh… what a weekend! I was BUSY, as usual… but, it was such fun and so refreshing! This weekend I enjoyed a Girls Night with some old friends, met up with the Portland Bloggers’ group, helped a friend refresh her blog design, and did some major blog planning for my own blogs. While I am now EXHAUSTED I am also feeling super excited about all my goals and plans.

Saturday’s Portland Bloggers’ Meet-Up was better than I could have imagined. I actually anticipated the meet-up to be a smaller one because it is the first one of the year… but, we had double the people I guessed we would. There were old faces and new faces… lots of great input on our theme, “Give Your Blog a Buzz in 2013!” I’ll be posting a full review on the Portland Bloggers’ website later this week. I’ll also be posting some free printable blogging planners that I created. Speaking of…

I used the printables to FINALLY work on some plans and lists for my blogs. I’ve got a lot of changes in store for this little blog. I promise they will be grand though! I’m getting around to resolutions late this Β year. I’m still recovering from the holidays. But, as I finally have the next few weeks planned out… let me tell you that you’ll be seeing some fun Valentine’s Day items coming soon!

Finally, I helped my lovely friend Sam from Sam Rosen refresh her blog design. She has fabulous tastes and I loved that she went with such a simple design so that her images and posts really stand out. If you love a little sparkle in your life, some really great outfit ideas, and some fun party images then head on over to Sam’s blog and FOLLOW!

So, friends… what did YOU do this weekend?

If you do a weekend in review post then I’d love to see it! Feel free to link it up here:

    This is great, I just “came” from another blog talking about this event and I’m so jealous!!! Its great to put a “face” to the IG likes too! So Hi Jennibost nice to “meet” you! πŸ™‚ Love the printable calendar. I really need to get more organized. Most of the time my blog is just random musings of things I want to do but I never have any rhyme or reason.
