Next weekend I am going to be attending the Camp Blogaway Food Blogger Bootcamp, which is taking place at Camp de Benneville Pines in Angelus Oaks, California. That is in the mountains east of Los Angeles and I will be enjoying all of the activities planned by Patti Londre of Worth the Whisk from Friday afternoon through Sunday brunch. We will be staying in cabins and sleeping on bunk beds in sleeping bags.
Patti has planned three days jam-packed with activities for food bloggers, such as a Hands-On Wilton Decorating Workshop and Competition, workshops on Photography with Art Ramirez, Recipe Writing with Barbara Ostman, Food Styling with Denise Vivaldo, Running Your Blog like a Business with Patti Londre and Search Engine Optimization with Danny Jauregui. There will be Panel Discussions with Public Relations Pros and a Mad Housewife Wine Tasting.
Then for fun there will be Sunrise Hikes, Karaoke, Massages, S’Mores, Fireside Lodge Lounging, Cinematherapy, a Prop Swap and Golden Pinecone Award!
But the best thing will be the opportunity to get to know 50 other food bloggers, to share stories and tips, to learn what their blog focus is, how they did it. I am really looking forward to that!
Here are some photos we received from Patti Londre of the Camp area to boost our enthusiasm. Three days away from Los Angeles and our real lives to being immersed in the forest and food blogging. Yea!
OH, and it has been highly recommended we bring heavy duty ear plugs, a flash light with extra batteries and to always walk with a buddy after sundown. If we bring snax, they need to be stored in the lodge, as there are bears that may break in if they smell food in the cabins or cars. Oh my!
So I will be giving you a day by day report when I return. Expect the unexpected!
