When I started this blog I had no idea quite how big a passion it would become in such a short space of time.
So although I feel like a bit of a fraud – seeing as I’ve only been blogging for three months – I’ve bought a ticket to BritMums Live.
I’m going to be hearing inspirational, motivational and educational talks from the best in the blogging business.
I am so excited about the agenda and getting the chance to meet lots of bloggers I’ve connected with online but not spoken to face to face yet. A glass of wine and a day without the kids make it quite appealing too.
So why do I feel like a fraud? This is a serious conference for actual bloggers, amazing people who have been at this for a hell of a lot longer than me.
I just don’t feel like I’ve earned the blogger title yet. I can probably call myself beginner blogger or wannabe blogger, but I’m not sure just a few weeks of blogging qualifies you as an actual blogger.
I’ve been trying my hand at blogging for about three months. I’m extremely proud of The Mummy Bubble and it’s become a bit like my third baby to be honest.
I work on it every single day writing new content, plugging my posts on social media and engaging with readers and other bloggers.
I’ve now published more than 200 posts, here’s some links to my favourites if you fancy a look:
Quiz: Are you ready for a toddler?
The 7 stages of sleep deprivation
Bringing up baby: Google is not right, you are
I absolutely love blogging, it is the perfect hobby for me. I love to write and I am thoroughly enjoying running my own website. I’m learning a lot too.
I want to keep on learning and grow my skill set, which will be completely transferable to my actual job as a journalist.
This is one of the things I love the most about blogging actually. So much of what I do and what I’m learning can be applied to careers such as journalism, marketing and communications. It’s a perfect fit for me.
This conference is packed with exciting workshops on SEO, YouTube, social media growth and much, much more.
The opportunity for networking and swapping tips with fellow bloggers is also immense.
But most importantly for me it’s a mental break from being stuck on the mummy treadmill 24/7.
It’s a chance to have grown-up conversation with fellow adults and talk about a shared hobby, or for some a career, that we’re all passionate about.
So I’m now counting down the days until BritMums Live 2017.
Do come and say hello if you’re there! I would love to meet you in person.
