Britmums is today!
Liz was asking me on Twitter how many Britmums/Cybermummy conferences we have attended so far and although I am pretty sure it is 4, the safe bet is to say ALL of them!
I feel like this year has a big blogging revolution in store for me. Since Cybher I have had to do a lot of rethink and I am almost where I want to be now. But more on that another time.
As I sat at the hairdresser yesterday I started thinking about the whole blogging thing and then I realised that it is almost 5 years that one day I received an email from Susanna asking me if I wanted to join a brand new blogging community called British Mummy Bloggers. I joined not knowing what to expect and boy I was in for a big surprise. Five years down the line and this community is now counting thousands of bloggers and I feel very lucky to have been on this journey from the beginning.
Blogging has enhanced my life, and has opened opportunities for my family and me in ways I would have never dreamt of.
I will be part of a panel at Britmums, with the very talented Robin Houghton and Emily Quinton talking about making your blog look amazing. This is what blogging and joining a blogging community has done for me. I now work with small business owners designing their sites and teaching them how to. I give social media talks and trainings and I am loving every single minute of it.
When this started I simply needed a personal outlet. Somewhere I felt I connected to like minded parents, especially the ones who had made the decision, by choice or not, to take a career break to look after their children. I wasn’t sure where I was heading professionally and I attempted many things but all ended up leading me to sharing what I had learnt in social media and blog, web and graphic design.
I tip toed around it not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with it until now.
Five years ago, I was a mummy bloggers by chance, living my life according to two little human beings, and nurturing a blog that became like a limb to me. Today I have grown into a confident blog designer and social media coach and that’s thanks to Blogging.
