MNBloggerBash started several years ago as a part of Hubbard Interactive with the idea to connect businesses to bloggers and influencers. We have hosted many events and the team behind those events decided it was time for a rebranding effort. Over the last 6 months they have built a new website, designed new logos and changed the whole color scheme, and even reframed the events themselves. In this episode we talk with a couple ladies from the MNBloggerBash team about the rebrand and what it will mean going forward.
