As we look back on the past decade, Elsieisy Blog has made a significant impact in the field of Impact Blogging. The anniversary lunch event was a chance for the founder, Elsie Godwin, and the community of friends, readers, and contributors to come together and celebrate this milestone.
The event took place at Maple Restaurant in Lekki, Lagos, and was an intimate gathering of close friends of the brand. According to Elsie, the guest list was carefully curated as she wanted to share this special moment with those who have been a part of her journey as a blogger. Some of the guests were guest contributors, some were readers who provided feedback that ultimately shaped the stories on the blog, and others were simply supporters who have been there from the beginning.
During the welcome speech, Elsie shared the significance of the anniversary lunch and reflected on the early days of the blog. She spoke of the challenges she faced, such as building an audience and establishing herself as an authority in the field, and the amount of growth which the blog has experienced. She went on to appreciate everyone for their contribution to the blog’s evolution, setting the tone for the speeches that followed.
One after the other, the guests shared their personal experiences with Elsie and the Elsieisy blog. Some spoke of the impact that the blog has had on their own lives and careers, while others shared how they have been able to connect with others through the blog’s content. The atmosphere was lively and celebratory, with everyone in high spirits and excited to mark this significant occasion.
The event also featured a little game, where guests had the opportunity to win gifts courtesy of the me. Did I mention that I was the host of the event? Yes, I was and it was an exciting way to end the event, as I recall everyone feeling happy.
As we say goodbye to the past decade and welcome a new one, we took a moment to reflect on the impact that Elsieisy Blog has had over the past 10 years. From its humble beginnings as a personal blog, Elsieisy has grown. The blog has helped to connect people, share ideas, and provide valuable resources.
The impact of the Elsieisy Blog goes beyond just the content itself. The community that has formed around the blog is what truly sets it apart. The readers, contributors, and supporters who make up this community are what make the blog so special. They are the ones who have helped to shape the blog into what it is today, and they are the ones who will continue to make it grow in the years to come.
