you may have seen me twittering on about #blogtournyc recently, and wondered what on earth all the fuss was about?
well, i’m very excited to be one of a very lucky group of 15 bloggers who have been chosen to attend blogtour2012, the brainchild of the super talented veronika miller from american interior design platform modenus!
the first ever blogtour was held last september when a group of bloggers from the states visited london during the design festival, where i was lucky enough to meet up with the group and share the wonderful world of london design with them.
following the success of blogtour2011 further trips have been planned in 2012; to the architectural digest home design show in new york city in march, as well as to milan and paris before returning back to london in september.
the mission of blogtour is “to further the understanding and awareness of design in the us, uk and europe and support networking and information exchange between design bloggers, designers, artisans and manufacturers while providing more exposure for international design events.”
“we organised blogtour in response to the extraordinary amount of digital buzz we saw coming from the bloggers we had worked with in the past and we wanted to create an initiative that would bring bloggers to the main trade shows,” says veronika, “but also to allow enough space for them to explore the wealth of design on display at smaller venues, so they can provide their readers and social media following with a first hand look at the festival, in what is a bloggers signature style: enthusiastic, vibrant and chock full of personality.”
here are my lovely fellow new york city bound bloggers – i can’t wait to meet y’all, we are going to have so.much.fun!
