Blank Space – A Bad Case Of Writers Block

When you find yourself googling the phrase ‘how to overcome writers block’, you know you are in trouble. You may, or may not have noticed that I haven’t been around much recently. I’ve been struggling to write anything for almost a month, and my blog is suffering for it. Yes, I’ve posted a few photography posts here and there, but nothing with a substantial amount of writing. I have spent many an evening staring at the blank space on my blogger screen, wondering what to do with myself. In June, I attended Britmums Live. I had been dreaming about it […]

I’m Going to BritMums Live 2015

In less than three weeks time I will be heading to London for the first time to attend a blogging and social media conference, BritMums Live. I booked my tickets a few months ago, and at the time it felt like ages away. It has really crept up on me, I’ve been sitting tonight planning my travel around London, and it suddenly sunk in that I’m actually doing this!  I’ve left it pretty late, but here is my ‘I’m going to Britmums Live’ meme, so those of you that are going can decide if you want to hug me or avoid […]

BiBs Nominations Fever

Forget the Oscars and the Baftas, right now it is all about the BiBs. Yes, it is award season in the blogging world. The Brilliance in Blogging awards, or the BiBs for short, is a parenting blog awards from Britmums, and with over 200,000 votes last year it is one of the largest blogger awards in the UK. Last year I was a new blogger when the nomination stage began, and I watched on with awe and wonder as bloggers began asking for nominations and exchanging tips on who to vote for. ‘Wow’, I thought, ‘this looks amazing, I can’t […]
