So at about 5:20 today I was researching the Charlotte blogging scene for a project at work when I came across The Charlotte Social. This was exactly what i was looking for! A blogging group that links Charlotte bloggers and the social media savvy to each other and to local businesses. Now that I had found them I just had to attend the next event, which turned out to start 40 minuets later! Lydia (Boss) was kind enough to let me scoot off a bit early to catch up with this lovely group. We met at NoDa Brewing Co, had a few beers (well I had one. I'm a LIGHTWEIGHT), enjoyed some delicious tacos from the Tin Kitchen truck, and were, ya know, social. Or, I tried to be. I basically tripped all over myself for about 10 min before getting quiet and fumbling with my phone. After getting my beer (NoDahito) and my taco (potato and honey encrusted Halibut) I relaxed a good bit. I met some sweet ladies that I hope to see again and am quite excited about cross promotion possibilities.
This is my slightly terrified/ super awkward face.
Rushing out of work early, sweaty, gross, and not looking my best paid off. I met a super nice group that I look forward to future interactions with, both on and offline!
