I'm back from a fabulous and very successful Food Blogger Connect (FBC) 2010. It was so nice seeing so many familiar faces from last years FBC09, being able to put many new faces to blogs I've been reading for a while, and meeting completely new food bloggers whose blogs I am yet to discover - very exciting! Even though the event spanned over 3 days, I unfortunately didn't get a chance to take a photo of (or chat to) everyone!
Leen, shortly making her food blogging debut (stay tuned!)
Meeta from What's For Lunch Honey
I was so nervous before talking with Meeta on our Food Styling & Photography presentation, but from the feedback I've had so far, it was very well received. If anyone has any questions about the talk, or anything that might have been unclear or a topic you would have wanted more information on, leave a comment below or email me and I'll be more than happy to help!
I learned so much from this weekend: how to be more focused about exact changes I need to make on my blog, new directions I need to explore, and I've also realised just how important social networking can be. A big thank you to all the speakers, you were all very motivating, inspiring and helpful!

Even though it may be the end of FBC10, we're already working on FBC11. For all the latest, see the FBC website. We've set up an FBC twitter handle (@bloggerconnect) for you to keep up to date with all FBC updates directly. We'll also be collating and updating the photo gallery with all the photos from the event. Plus, we're collecting all blog post links about the event and will add them to the site shortly so you don't miss any detail of the event.
You can share all your FBC blog post links in the comments section of the latest post on the FBC website HERE.
