Last night was the Sydney meet for Hello Blogger Events, held at the Pocket Bar in Darlo.

It was lovely to see Dani and Cait again and I met Tony and Christine for the first time. What a loverly bunch!

I lugged my D80 into town with my big fat 18-135mm on it… and the best photos I could get were on the AUTO setting. Can you believe it?

Pocket Bar is part of an art gallery, so the bar was… well, artistically decorated. Ahem. Cait was the first to say something about it!

Things pretty much went downhill once Dani produced the props.

You know you’re in a trendy bar when the cops make a routine visit. Thankfully feathers and plastic sunnies aren’t illegal substances.

You might find it hard to believe, but we did manage to talk about blogging amongst all this…

“What’s the best way to target your market with Facebook ads to ensure a high click-through rate?”

Bloggers are completely normal people who don’t stand out amongst the general public…

“What are your thoughts on your preferred ad network?”

“Is it true that moving from Blogger to WordPress could increase my traffic by 40%?”

(Not a great photo of Leigh, me and Tony, the one Dani took is way betterer!)

Leigh and I shared this jug of something Sangria-like. It cost us $50 and we got about 3 glasses each out of it. Very easy to drink. We may have bought another jug to share with Dani. AHEM!

Saucy minx!

Don’t ask why we were checking under the couch cushions… but we were impressed that it was a Brescia couch!

Thanks to Dani and Hello Events for a great night! There were lots of laughs amongst the blogging talk.

Though I must confess that I’m struggling to understand the notes I wrote down ;)

Are you gonna come along to the next one?

    1. $50 for about six serves makes it sound okay, though…. but they were small serves!!
