Yesterday I had a great day at BlogJam Atlantic in Halifax, NS. When preparing to attend Blog Jam this year I knew I really wanted to take advantage of meeting other bloggers, learning from them and especially getting to know them. So to hold myself accountable and make sure I did exactly that I decided to make sure I met (and photographed) at least 5 Bloggers and asked them two short questions so we could get a quick snapshot about them.
I photographed their shoes (you knew I would!) and asked them their favourite something and a would you rather question.
Elayna was the first speaker of the morning and she really set the bar for everyone else. She spoke about writing for one person, being vulnerable and provided excellent tips for the group (as fellow Bloggers) to take advantage of in order to make small changes on our own blogs but see big differences. Elayna was a delight to meet and had on some pretty amazing heels! Ladies and gentlemen, meet Elayna:

What is your favourite movie? The Lion King
Would you rather eat cake or cookies? Cake!
I have been following Jenna and her blog for about a year now and was so happy to finally meet her in person. She is just as lovely “in real life” as she is online… and, her sneakers are absolutely amazing! They are her family tartan… super fun eh?!
Jenna Morton (@pickleplanetmoncton)
What is your favourite toy? Vintage Fisher Price playhouse
Would you rather stay up all night or sleep all day? Stay up all night
A few weeks ago I asked you on on twitter what you were drinking for the weekend and an overwhelming number of you answered with “Beer”. So this blog is for all of you – pleasure to introduce you to Todd:
Todd Beal (@maritimebeerrpt)
What is your favourite song? Crazy by Patsy Kline
Would you rather have ketchup or mustard? Ketchup
This was the first time I met Stephanie in person, but you might remember her from the easter egg hop she and I both participated in a few months ago. Well, she was just as lovely in person as her easter egg transformation was online. Be sure to check out her blog for home decor, some DIY and more:

What is your favourite holiday? Christmas
Would you rather eat a bug or a worm? A cruchy bug
As it turns out, Lori and I both have similar approaches to blogging. We both blog for fun, we both have full time careers outside of blogging and we are both labeled as “creative” people by our peers. One of my all time favourite posts from Lori is about barn quilts. Never heard of a barn quilt?! Find them on her blog and you’ll see what I mean!
Lori Byrne (@farmfreshstyle)
What is your favourite animal? A baby lamb
Would you rather live where its hot or cold? Cold
Beautiful rooms, home decor and more is what you can expect if you follow Lauren on instagram. I shared her post about her son’s bedroom not too long ago and love the idea of a grown up, but still fun space for all of the Little Dude’s in our lives. Meet Lauren:

What is your favourite game? Cranium
Would you rather be able to read minds or be invisible? Read minds (without hesitation!)
Last, but certainly not least, I met Brittany who has recently started her blog. Her blog is a behind the scenes look into graphic design… kind of like a modern day Mad Men! The design process has always intrigued me and so I can’t wait to see what really goes on behind the scenes.

What is your favourite book?“Built to Sell”
Would you rather give up pizza for a year or tv for a year? TV
There were of course, MANY other bloggers with fantastic blogs at the event this year – If you’d like more introductions or have a topic in particular you would like to find a blog about comments below and I will be happy to recommend my fellow bloggers to you.
Have fun checking out all of these bloggers and their blogs!
