About a month ago, I attended #SharingbytheShore, an intimate food blogger retreat held in Traverse City, Michigan. Over the past year, I’ve been to a few blogging retreats and always had a positive experience; this trip was no different.
You might be wondering why food bloggers have retreats. Well, it gives us the chance to connect, learn more about one another on a more personal level, laugh, eat, and share our blogging skills/experiences. Every one has a different work style, reason they blog and what they’re passionate about. Like any other industry, it’s important to get together and learn from one another (similar like you would at a conference).
I loved this retreat in particular because we were in such a gorgeous destination. Before attending, I had never been to Michigan before (except the Detroit airport). It was a five hour drive from Chicago and couldn’t have been more beautiful. And, the entire retreat was sponsored by Milk Means More — we couldn’t be more thankful for having such a kind, generous sponsor help us learn from one another.
