So what is SweetUP exactly? WELL....... It's a community of Jewish bloggers and brands who use social media to connect, learn, and share ideas with each other online and in person.
My other facebook "friends" and I felt that there was a great need for an organization like this - there just wasn't a place where we could all come together and meet. So on a beautiful summer's day, Sharon Langert, Esti Berkowitz, Sarah Lasry, and I met to discuss our first event for SweetUP "A Shmoozefest for bloggers and brands!"

On the day of the event Esti and I manned the registration table, while Sarah and Sharon put the finishing touches to our decor.
