[April] Expat Blogger Brunch invite

As a blogger, I share my experiences online not only as a venue for telling stories and sharing ideas but also as a resource for making connections. While living abroad, I've made some wonderful contacts through social media. In fact, Kaitlin (Georgia Peach Abroad) and I met through our blogs
 and have gone on to become very close friends in real life!

From socializing to discovering new places around town and embarking on adventures together, meeting other expat bloggers has made me feel more connected as we offer support throughout our experiences abroad. In the mean time, I've also been contacted by other bloggers and expats who are looking to make a connection,
because that's what social media is all about, right?

Kaitlin and I have been brainstorming ideas for a fun, creative group that will bring expat bloggers in the Netherlands together for once a month meet-ups. There are so many bloggers out there and it's time we all met in person!

That's exactly why my pal Kaitlin and I are excited to announce our first ever Expat Blogger Brunch!

Are you looking to expand your social circle, just settling into life abroad or in need of a creative boost? Our aim for this group is primarily socializing, networking and exchanging ideas.

The idea behind Expat Blogger Brunch is to...

 -Expand your experience abroad through a network of expat bloggers in the Netherlands
-Exchange ideas, suggestions and support about and within the expat community
 -Cultivate social media contacts into real life connections 
-Inspire one another through topic discussions and special events

This group is open to anyone who is an expat and blogger in the Netherlands and those with encourage different backgrounds are encouraged to participate. We've got some really fun ideas lined and the only thing missing is YOU!
