The #Hive15 – Berlin

Last weekend I and many other digital storytellers made our way to Berlin from all corners of the world (Literally!) to get together at The #Hive15 – a gathering of digital storytellers, tastemakers & bloggers.

Big and small blogs, company representatives, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, publishing companies…even Haribo and Lego were represented (which made me insanely happy, cos those two are probably my ALL TIME favourites)!

I met wonderful inspiring people, even tho I missed a few I wanted to meet (next year right?) We learnt about branding, social media strategies, building our readership, the creative process of publication houses, had very interesting talks during lunch time with the hands behind Baked it, and even played the role of “Editor in Chief” of a renowned German magazine. It was a exhilarating, inspiring, motivational, and ridiculously fun! 
Either way, I’m not here today to tell you all about my experience, because I think Kaffe und Kuchen and The Slow Pace have pretty much said everything I wanted to say in their awesome posts about #Hive15. 
Instead, I’ve decided to compile some of the most interesting and relevant tweets from the weekend, because what is a Digital Storytellers, Tastemakers, and Bloggers event without an ocean of tweets, instagrams, and the one or two Facebook and Google+ posts? Nothing! So, here we go!
