San Francisco in September: Workshop, Drinks, Photowalk

2 Posted by - June 26, 2013 - Life

Okay, I’m almost never in the US — but this September I will be for about three weeks. So I decided to schedule a few events while I was there, namely: a workshop on blogging, a travel meetup which involves drinks, and a photowalk around the city. Want to join me? Yes? OMG yay!

It’ll be crazy, like oh god, we met online and now we’re in the same room, but then, I suspect, it’ll be really cool, because there will be wine. Or phototaking. Or workshopping. Plus it’s San Francisco which has been on my top 5, “If we move back home where would it be” list for at least three years running.

Workshop: Sept 14-15, 2013

This is my two-day workshop in San Francisco through BlogBrilliantly.com. I’m teaching about overcoming blogging plateaus and how you can use your creative energy to burst into a more productive and successful place. There is a fee for the event, see the link below for registering. I love teaching these workshops because it’s so important as a creative person to get out there and engage with other people and to just talk shop with folks who get it. If that’s you, I’d love to see you there. Email me with questions if you have them, otherwise, come to our travel meetup or photowalk happening thurs/fri before this weekend!

I’d love to do a travel meetup — location to be determined based on how many RSVPs we get (but if you have a suggestion, happy to hear it!). Come join me for a drink, let’s swap tales, and meet other travelers. Free event.

Photowalk: Sept 13, 2013 4PM

I’d love to shoot some photos with you around the city. I’ll announce the meeting location closer to the date. You don’t have to have a fancy camera, just bring what you have, come along and let’s take some pics. I love taking photos in this city, but I’d love suggestions on places to hit. We’ll probably walk around for 2-3 hours, then maybe stop for coffee, depending on how the group feels. Free event.

RSVP: here

I hope to see you guys! Any suggestions on venues or locations welcome!

    Christine, this sounds like such a fabulous workshop on blogging, and I’m so bummed I will miss it. I’m in Southern Oregon Sept 13 – 15 to run the Pine to Palm 100. I would really like to meet you in person while you’re in the Bay Area. Please feel free to contact me — I could give you a tour of Oakland/Berkeley if you want to check out the East Bay — and maybe we could practice Spanish :-)

      Hi Sarah, I would love to finally meet you after all these years! I will probably be in the area outside of those dates, so we’ll figure something out. I’vr never seen the East Bay so that would be great!

    Please take a photo of the red sour cherry candies at the candy shop at Fisherman’s Wharf:) My favorite memory of San Francisco (aside from hanging on the back of a trolley car just like in the movies:) is eating cherry sours while walking around with my 13-year old daughter. That was 16 years ago and to this day I equate San Francisco with cherry sours!
    PS Should you happen to have a diversion to the Portland area, I’m across the river from the airport and mi casa es su casa:)

    I’m new to the site but love what I’m reading. I’m in the bay area and wondering about the photo tour. I also have two small children and was wondering, will it be child friendly and will your children be with you? Thank you!
