Blogapalooza Meet and Greet Update


Hi everyone! Some bloggers have reached out to me regarding the U.S. Blogapalooza event. The event will be happening on Saturday, August 26 in the Chicago area. Thank you to those who signed up and helped pay the deposit over the past few weeks. The money was used to reserve the location. There is still lots of room for others who may want to attend. If you have any questions, please reach out to me at: Dinner is $30-40 per person. You are also welcome to bring guests. The meal can be paid for at the restaurant. We will have guest speakers and fun! Although this is a smaller event, I know it’s still going to be a blast! Unfortunately, a few bloggers had to cancel or couldn’t go this year. This will most likely be the last post regarding Blogapalooza. The list of attendees so far includes:

Marci from What’s for Dinner Moms

Van from Van by the River

Linda from Nutsrok + 1 guest

Sylvester from Syl65

Tracy from A Joyful Process + 1 guest

Phil from The Phil Factor

Erika Kind

April E. Sutton from April’s Prospective

Lisa from Life of an El Paso Woman

A few other maybes

Please let me know if I forgot anyone ASAP!

Event Info

Our dinner will be held at Chicago Prime Italian in Schaumburg, Illinois on Saturday Aug. 26, 2017 at 6 p.m. for about three hours. Depending on traffic, Schaumburg is around 40 minutes away from Chicago using public transportation or a taxi. You may even be able to stay in Schaumburg. We (the Blogapalooza Committee) decided on Schaumburg because costs were more reasonable than Chicago. The meal includes an appetizer, soup or salad, Italian entrée, drinks (non-alcoholic is a separate cost) and dessert. Please feel free to share this by reblogging and/or social media. 









  1. So, let’s hope that someone takes over because it was fantastic to have an annual meeting on each continent. We will see. I am already very thankful that you are making the effort this year, Lisa!!

  2. Reblogged this on Erika Kind and commented:
    The U.S. Blogapalooza is coming closer and closer! I can hardly wait to meet more bloggers who already feel like old friends.
    For the ones of you who live in the Chicago area or who are able and would love to visit the windy city, hey, don’t think twice! It is still time to register!
