Me and My Blog - Day Fourteen

Hello all, I hope your having a good weekend?
I went to my friends wedding yesterday and it was the most wonderful day and so much fun! It was in a converted barn out in the country, the sun was shining and the whole thing went really well.


There was lots of laughs and everybody had great day so mine and Dale's holiday week started with a bang! Today we are just chilling out before we go on holiday tomorrow....can't wait!!!!!!!!

Right todays challenge is to talk about when and why we started blogging, I don't want to sound like a broken record as I have already said when and why here, so for this challenge I'm going to share what I have gained from blogging thus far and where I hope to take my from here. 


I have been blogging now for 5 years this November and with what started as a hobby has slowly grown into so much more than that. At first I just wanted a place of my own to document what I got up to, the highs and lows of life and something I could look back on in the future to see how I have changed. I did this in the form of a blog because I also wanted to find like minded people to talk and share things with. Not many of my friends like to go out for a meal and take a picture of what they're eating, many find it odd but the blogging community totally get it so here I am not strange at all....well maybe a little but its not because I take pictures of food! 


Blogging has given me so many opportunities, I have met some wonderful people and got to do some amazing things. For example when I got to go to London for the day and do a master class with Florence Knight and when I did the Rice Dream You Tube Ad both of these would never of happened if I hadn't started my blog.

I have got to try some amazing products from food to kitchen gadgets to sports wear you can see all my reviews here. I am so grateful to all of those companies that have been kind enough to send samples for me to try, I am aware I'm very lucky and I feel honoured they want to know my thoughts.


Where do I want to go from here?

Gosh where don't I want to go! I have come to realise this last year my blog has been a little erratic with posts and such so I have given myself a talking to and have promised to get organised and really spend some time getting my blog where I want it to be. I would like to give it a facelift maybe move to a new host and give more through my posts. I am toying with idea of maybe doing some vlogs, I think getting to know someone through video is a great thing when blogging so you may see me on film sooner rather then later! Basically I want my blog to grow and become more then it is right now so stay tuned for bigger and better things from me!

  3. Love your moustache! :P
    Although I love reading blogs I've recently starting watching some vlogs whilst getting ready for work in the morning. It's so interesting seeing a blogger in 'real life' and knowing how they act and what their accent sounds like. :)
