I am delighted to say I am going to Britmums!!! 

BritMums is the BIGGEST Lifestyle social media event for Bloggers in the UK, possibly the World! I am very proud and super lucky to say I have been sponsored by Top CashBack a Great Cashback site, currently taking the Nation by storm. Thank you SO SO MUCH TOP CASHBACK!
Top CashBack announced on Twitter they will be sponsoring me, someone rightly asked what is that?

BLOGGING - MY STORY


I opened a blogger account back in 2009, sadly I didn't write my first blog post until late 2011.  I always had a feeling inside that I wouldn't be good enough.  Following others bloggers I realised there were actual rules; do's and don'ts to blogging .  Where would I find out all the answers?



However, I kept having flashes of writing interesting subjects I wanted to share, I wanted to get on my soap box and tell the world what I thought and how I feel.  Well, eventually I overcame my fear and the rest is history.

Over the last couple of years I have met some very interesting people, been to some great events all because of my passion for writing.

The otherside of blogging is writing for other people and brands/companies. Blogging has given me great opportunities to work with wonderful companies, test products, attend events and sharing my experiences to an audience, you guys.  Its been an amazing journey so far.

BRITMUMS

Last year a few friends in my social network attended Britmums, they came back raving about how awesome it is. They attended workshops for beginners (I definitely need this in my life), writers and storytellers.  Listen to talks from influential bloggers, people who have been writing for yonks, people in the biz so to say, sharing their stories and offering first hand advice.

There will also be PR/Marketing people there wanting to interact with bloggers to give their brands a platform to share their stories and promote their goods and services. 


BritMums is an awesome opportunity to get yourself out there, I can be a fairly shy person but I want to experience this for myself.  Blogging is amazing, its feels great when a total strangers leaves me a fantastic message and says I enjoyed that post, thank you.  My blog is online, its out there in cyberspace, my states ( thats right I have states) show I have readers, people from all around the world.  Russia, America, Europe, Australia the list if endless.


My advice is you want to scream, shout, laugh, cry, if you have something to share, don't be shy trying blogging.  Its has opened doors for me, there is space for everyone.  I am learning and have learnt times have changed and we live in a digital world.
