On Sunday, May 16, 2010, SV Moms Group and BitDefender
brought together 50 local New York City
Moms Blog, New Jersey Moms Blog and Philadelphia Moms Blog bloggers and 20
sponsoring companies to our fourth Brand-Blogger Meet-up at the hip and cozy Tribeca Cinemas (yes, where the renowned Tribeca
Cinemas Film Festival takes place each year). 20 sponsoring companies
joined us for the day.
The intent of our meet-ups is to connect brands targeted to women with
influential mom bloggers and to build community.
A huge thank you

The day started with an open and honest two-hour discussion in the theater, led by SV Moms Group partners Jill Asher
and Linsey Krolik and New York City Moms Blog blogger Beth Feldman, about how brands and bloggers are working together. We discussed the power of hyper-local blogging, social media tools and trends, and much more.
Following the two
hour round-table discussion, the brands and bloggers moved into the restaurant/bar area of Tribeca Cinemas for drinks, food, and one-on-one networking. Here is what a few of our
attendees had to share about their experiences meeting with brands,
networking and catching up (IN REAL LIFE) with fellow SV Mom
Group Bloggers in New York City.
