I was recently inspired by a company called Eventbrite, which is a ticket selling platform for event planners. I wanted to share what my dream panel would be if I were ever to hold a blogger conference.
Who would be on my panel?
It`s hard to choose as there are obviously so many amazing bloggers out there. Obviously I had to narrow it down and I figured that four is a good number. You get in some variation, but it`s not chaos. You know? So these are my choices.
Sophie Elise- http://sophieelise.blogg.no/
This is the biggest blogger in Norway. At just age 22 she is a known household name all over the country and she makes a really good living of her blog and is frequently seen in nation vide commercials as well as on our reality show “the bloggers” (bloggerne). The reason I would love to have her at my panel is that I would love to ask her more about her political views, as she supports a different party than me, yet has many views I agree on. She is also known for having had a lot of plastic surgery and I would really want to ask her about what made her do it and if it`s made her any happier. Also if she has any advice for others who are considering getting something done and what questions she thinks you should ask yourself before going through with it.
Aleali (Uh-lay-lee) May– http://www.alealimay.com/
This image consultant and model is not just incredibly gorgeous and stylish, she is also a young successful entrepreneur and local LA celebrity. Since her blog is purely style based with pictures and descriptions, I have so many topics and questions that need answers from her. Like, what is it like going to Columbia business school? Was styling Kedrick Lamar or Wiz Khalifa the most fun? What is racial identity like when you`re half african-american and half Filipino? But what I would most like to get out of having her on the panel, is spreading the idea that it`s not only possible to have a style that`s both high-end and street, it`s can also be 100 % amazing. Talk about best of both world.
When I first got asked to do this post, the first person I was sure I was going to include in my panel, was Jasmine. I have read her blog ever since I joined WP, and I am continually impressed by her. At only fourteen she is such a good writer and deep thinker, and her blog is basically what I tried to do when I was her age and failed at. And her style is A+! I would love to have her at my panel because “the young perspective” in so many situations means under 35, but really there is a whole group of people who are not being heard and are seeing the world in a totally different way that we should listen more to. Young teenagers have the curiosity and innocence of children, but also some life experience, knowledge and vocabulary that makes them able to present their views.
There are two things in life I`ll never get enough of (okay there are many, but here`s two of them), clothes and travels. Krystals blog is full of inspiration regarding both of these subjects. This is the go to blog for outfit ideas, travelling reviews and boosting about the 90s generation. Obviously all of these topics would be discussed, but even more important. East Coast vs West Coast! When will this ever not be a relevant and heated topic? Well, never, that`s when. Krystal has a lot of experience from both. Tell us all the inside secrets, Krystal! Also, she worked for google for five years! I`m sorry for rambling guys, but I can`t help that she`s both stylish and impossibly interesting. After watching “the interns”, we all want to no if working at google really is like that. Anyone who denies is is definitely lying.
What would I ask them?
I`ve already talked about some things that I want to know about them individually, but obviously the whole point of a panel is to get different views on the same topic. And to get to know interesting people and public figures of course. So here are some of the main questions I`d ask them.
- If you could only wear one designer for the rest of your life, who and why?
- Do you believe that you can change the world through blogging? How?
- What do you love most about your city?
- Do you believe in pink?
- What makes you unique as a blogger?
- Where should our main focus be in the womens rights issue?
- Subscribe and comment? haha
Where would it take place?
Probably at some really cool mall in London where all the under aged fashionistas would come in rain soaked and fan girl.
So there you go. That is my fantasy blog panel. Check out Eventbrite and the services they offer – it’s pretty cool!
