MORE than 25 bloggers from all over Northern Ireland recently met up in Ballymena to discuss their social media journey to success.
The Jingle Mingle, which was held in the Smoking Monkey, was organised by Joahnna, creator of Rose Fabric Design, and Kirstie, owner of the Pyjama Mama.
Speaking to the Ballymena Guardian, Johanna said she had wanted to hold an event so everyone could meet face to face.
"Since Kirstie and I created our businesses we have got to know a lot of people through Instagram and on other social media platforms but we had never met the,," Johanna explained.
"I wanted to hold the event so everyone could put a name to the face and just for them to have a casual chat.
"It was very informal but it went exceptionally well.
“Everyone who attended was delighted with the opportunity to meet up, the feedback we got was fantastic."
The Mayor was also in attendance showing her support for locals who have started up their own business online and who are excelling in it.
Some of those who were in attendance are creators of new products and bloggers about their daily lives.
Everyone who was there also received a goodie bag filled with contents like popcorn, gin filled Christmas baubles, vegan drinks and much more.
Johanna and Kirstie plan to host another event in the very near future.
