In March 2014 our meet-up revolved all around networking with other bloggers. The Speed Networking Meet-Up was hosted by the amazing owners of Cyril’s at Clay Pigeon Winery. Over the past couple of months we shared a few things that we learned from the meet-up, including “Blogging Quick Tip: Following Up After a Networking Event” and “Crafting Your Brand Statement & Free Printable!” But, we aren’t the only ones who shared about the event! Check out the awesome posts below by Portland Bloggers who attended the Speed Networking Meet-Up!
