Like most good things, The Windy City Blogger Collective, came out of a night filled with wine and grilled cheese. Chicago’s first snow for the year in November 2013 provided the perfect background for Blair, Christine, Erin, Kit, and Lauren to put the wheels in motion. (Incidentally, the second official meeting was on Chicago’s second snowfall that season… we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we break this pattern by March.)
Our goal was, and still is, to create a community for Windy City Bloggers to connect with each other, interact with brands, and provide a platform for education and promotion!
The founders, only one of which is a native Chicagoan, recognize the powerful, positive, and supportive environment in the Chicagoland blogging community. We all adore Chicago and know we are lucky to call the Windy City home. As a collective, we will use our midwestern values to bring opportunities to our members.
We can’t wait to see you soon!
