Last evening I attended a mini workshop organized by the lovely ladies of BLOG TALK KC. 40 plus KC Bloggers got together, with notebooks and pens in hand, to learn about how to make your blog your full time income. I have been blogging for over five years now, but honestly when it comes to monetization, I realized I have not been that worldly .

It was a super windy evening, but we were in an ancient stone castle sipping on our cocktails and soaking in all that our lovely speakers had to share with us. No, I am not kidding about the castle bit at all. Chef Renee Kelly hosted our lovely bunch at her amazing restaurant HARVEST . I had been to Harvest earlier and if you want to read about my experience, then click Here .

Huge Thank you to Chef Renee Kelly for all the tasty appetizers she sent for us. From a crazy good cheese platter, to truffle fries with aioli, to clams and braised rabbits, the plates kept coming up. Chef Kelly spoke to us about her culinary journey and mentioned that she would be contesting for the next Top Chef. Well, we would be rooting for you big time Chef. Its always a pleasure meeting her.

Mingling , with the clinking of our cocktail and champagne glasses carried on, as the storm raged outside. My spirit of choice for the night was Pimms and Gin.

Finally it was time for our Keynote speaker, Kelly Snyder of the blog Redefined Mom  She literally blew my brains away with her business ideas. I was surely living under a rock, when it came to earning money from my blog.She took us through the ropes of how to fine tune the approach of our blogs, how to prepare a proper media kit and finally make our blog, a better marketable product.

"Your Blog is the only startup in the US, with the least amount of capital involved." As I was crazily scribbling down, it was indeed a wake up call for me.

Last but not the least, as it was so chilly and windy last night, I went the typical skinny jeans and leather jacket route for my OOTD. Some pointy shoes and my powder blue top from Express was my pop of color for the outfit.

Thank you Blog Talk KC, Chef Renee Kelly and Kelly Snyder for such a wonderful evening. I have a lot of work to do on my blog for sure.
