The Hive, called the European Blog Conference in this year, took place for the very first time in Berlin, Germany.
We welcomed more than 170 bloggers mostly from Germany and The Netherlands to a great weekend. We had small expectations, stil trying to find our way. This was a lot of try and error.
After founding the conference via text message in November 2011, there were only five months to set up a design and a program to attract bloggers from all over Europe.
The set up was the same: Presentations and workshops by bloggers and people from the industry, who wanted to work with one another. Blogging was so different back then, don't you think?
Right from the start we had wonderful speakers and attendees and many have returned again and again
