Like any conference or convention, there is always a need to have a place to sit down, recharge your phone and electronics, and have a cup of coffee. I thought it was genius of Folgers to offer the #FolgersLounge at BlogHer ’13 this year. Here, attendees could recharge their electronics as well as recharge with a cup of freshly brewed Folgers coffee and snack on the new Pillsbury Lil’ Donuts.
I was one of five “bold bloggers” chosen to work with Folgers to promote the lounge. I am being sponsored by Folgers, who is providing a promotional item in exchange for promoting their awesome ReCharge Lounge.
Set up like an inviting kitchen, the #FolgersLounge was welcoming and inviting to all, located at the center and front of the Expo center. In my home, our kitchen is the hub of everything on a daily basis and for parties. It is a welcoming place to sit, chat, and relax – the same went for the #FolgersLounge.
We all needed a break throughout the day to recharge ourselves and electronics. You wouldn’t believe how many tweets, texts, instagrams, facebook shares, and pinterest pins were made by the thousands of mom bloggers at the show! Bloggers like Parker Simmons from Everyday Runway stopped by to recharge throughout the show. It was so nice to meet fellow bloggers.
The #FolgersLounge was stocked full of freshly brewed coffee, k-cups of coffee, and the new new Pillsbury Lil’ Donuts #PillsburyLilDonuts. It was a much-needed break for all! I enjoyed my share of my favorite Folgers coffee – Mocha Swirl as well as the smooth Black Silk during BlogHer. Everyone loved stopping by to sample all the varieties and came back plenty of time!
You’ve gotta try the new Pillsbury Lil’ Donuts, everyone at the show loved them. They were so moist and the instructions on the box looked so easy to make.
I’ll be sharing more about the #FolgersLounge later this week. It was an incredible experience for me as a blogger. Partnering with Folgers was such a pleasure. Their parent company, Smucker’s is located right here in Ohio in Orrville, Ohio too.
