I went to my first blog party here in San Francisco a couple weeks ago. Founded by Jamie Wong, Blog Party is a meet up for bloggers of all types. Parties are held once a month in San Francisco, but a party has been held in L.A. and I’ve heard the parties may expand to other cities in the future. It’s a great way for bloggers to connect, network, and build a community. Each party is held in a great space and there are lots of great bites and drinks to be had and you can score some great swag as well!
The morning after I met my tour group in Naples was Easter Sunday. And what better way to celebrate the holiday than to go visit Pompeii and see where once an entire city was covered completely in ash by a near by volcano! So I grabbed some chocolate easter eggs that the hotel staff had for us at breakfast and we were on our way.
I have so much to share from my trip to Italy in April. Like last year, I got to go to Bologna for work for the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, one of the biggest book fairs in the world for children’s books. And also like last year, I decided to take advantage of the work trip and add on some vacation days to travel.
