A Multicultural Kid Blogger Retreat!

The first Multicultural Kid Bloggers retreat - in Silicon Valley, California

Members of the Multicultural Kid Bloggers Network met up earlier this month for a blogger retreat in Silicon Valley, California! Group founder Leanna of All Done Monkey led a visioning session where we discussed the future of this group, as well as individual blogs. We have some exciting things planned for this group – watch this space for notices about Google+ hangouts and more! What topics would you most like to see covered on this site? How can we help you raise multicultural world citizens?

Mia Wenjen of Pragmatic Mom shared her Twitter expertise (she wrote up some of her top Twitter tips for bloggers here), Kim Vij of The Educators’ Spin On It taught us about Pinterest (via Google Hangout, since she was in Florida!), and MaryAnne of Mama Smiles spoke about Google+ (you can find some of her top Google+ tips for bloggers here). We had a wonderful day together, and left with great ideas of how we want to make the most of this site and group, as well as how we can each improve our own blogs.

Are you a Europe-based multicultural kid blogger, or do you fancy a trip to France? Our next retreat is planned for Paris in two months, May 25th-26th! If you can’t make the Paris event but are interested in attending a retreat, let us know in the comments, along with what you would like to cover during a retreat and suggestions of locations that might work for you! We would love to see retreats for this group across the globe! How else can the MKB support your blogging journey?
