Welcome to Our One Year Anniversary Week!

Welcome everyone to our big one year anniversary celebration week!  This week we are going all out with tons of give aways, special post and an "anything goes" social media link up party!  I am also sharing my thoughts in a blogging first- my first ever vlog!  I hope you'll watch below and then scroll down after the video for a super awesome giveaway from our State Reps!

Northeast Bloggers was started in February of 2013 after a short brainstorming session driving home from brunch with my husband!  I was explaining to him what blogging networks are and how there are so many networks for Southern Bloggers, Texas bloggers, Florida bloggers, etc, but none that I knew of for North-easterners!  And he simply said "why don't you start one yourself?"  And so the Northeast Bloggers Network was born!  After we got home I immediately went to work on the blog layout, our first header, buttons and brainstorming ideas of how it might all work.

I am happy to say that after a year we are 500+ members strong, with an very active Facebook community,  and tons of great networking opportunities for everyone each week!  If you don't read our monthly newsletter (check your "promotions" tab!) I highly recommend you do, because that's where we promote all the fun things going on that month!

A big thank you to everyone for being an awesome member of our network!  I hope you are finding it useful and having fun meeting other bloggers in your region!

And now on to the vlog....
