To help celebrate our first year, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at our year of firsts!
Northeast Bloggers officially opened our virtual "doors" on February 25th, 2013 with our first post: Welcome!
We quickly began accepting members and our first member was Vicki, who writes the blog My Vicklicious Life! I asked Vicki to give us her thoughts for our anniversary and she said:
"How has it been a year already?! I was so excited when Rachel first told me about her plans to start "NorthEast Bloggers" and was honored to be its first member! I've loved how we've grown and it's been so much fun getting to know everyone!"
Thanks Vicki! Vicki was also our first ever Blog of the Week!
In April 2013 we started our Photography Challenge and the first theme was Family!
In June we started our Pinterest page and opened up community pages for our members to pin their post to!
In July we reached 200 members and had our very first giveaway!
Then in August we had our first meet up at the Field House in Philadelphia! We also started offering upgraded memberships, so members could be featured on our side bar (along with other perks throughout the year)
In September we had our first theme week which was also our first Fashion Week!
In October we hosted our first Twitter Chat!
November brought us our first Foodie Week (yum!)
Finally, in January we hosted our first Pin Committee link up!
It's been such a great year of firsts, with more to come!
