Eat, Write, Retreat Preview Post

Last weekend I attended a food conference called Eat, Write, Retreat. This conference took place in Washington, DC and was held over 3 days.

As a scholarship winner with Canadian Beef, I will be writing a post about the fantastic weekend I had and sharing as many pictures as I can. I hope you will check it out when it is posted.

If you are new to my blog please check out my post about Eat, Write, Retreat and Canadian Beef. I was a lucky winner in their contest to win a conference ticket sponsored by Canadian Beef. I entered a few beef recipes and was chosen as one of three!

I want to also say this was a super huge step for me as I have never been on a plane and haven’t really traveled alone before. The plane made me extremely nervous and it wasn’t because I am afraid of it crashes. It was everything else about planes – ears popping, the turbulence, landing, being air sick.

As a new food blogger I was very excited to learn all about photography and food styling, writing, tasting new and different foods and the biggest for me – meeting other food bloggers and the pros. I love to network and pick peoples brains. I learn best by talking with people and believe me I learned a ton of new things. One thing that was included in our conference package was a critique of our blogs and where we can improve, what we are doing well on. I knew there would be a lot to learn as I have only been working on my blog for a few months. I hope to improve it much more between now and next year’s conference.

I was super excited when I heard we would get to use great OXO products and Calphalon was there with some great items to raffle off! I have been dying to try their products. This conference was a lot smaller than the other conferences I attended last fall for social media which made it easier to network with bloggers and the pros all weekend. Also if this is your first food conference it is a great size to not feel totally intimidated.

As I am writing this post my mind is all over the place. I know I want to break everything down into smaller posts so that I wont have you here all day. I will leave you today with some photos as a sort of preview for posts to come.
