I first started out in the blogosphere 8 years ago when I started an anonymous Nanny/Child-care based blog. I loved writing and having a project I could work on while the kids were napping or had gone to bed. Staying anonymous was difficult but totally necessary with the style of my blog and before long I found the whole thing a little too hard to maintain.
The next year I started studying at uni and (more importantly) living on campus and I knew I needed a way to document it all. I had really enjoyed the process of blog ownership the year before and so the blog you're reading right now was born (though back then it was known as rinniez-rinniez).
Yep, that's right, I've been blogging about my life for a whole 7 years. Really, you'd think I'd have run out of things to say about myself by now (but apparently not). Over that time I have witnessed the growing blogosphere and the growing community of bloggers. I've read countless posts about Problogger events and Nuffnang Blogopolis and I've always wondered when I would finally get my ass into gear and attend a blogger workshop.
Well, I finally did it! Last Saturday I attended my first ever blog workshop in the form of the wonderful 'Little Blog Big'.
These women know their shit! Between them they seem to know everything you'd ever need to know to run a successful blog and/or social media account. Plus, they are genuinely lovely people who are so easy to talk to.
The day covered topics such as how to create content, how to manage your social media and how to avoid blogger burnout/be more productive. I feel like I have learnt so much and been given so many little projects from the day and I can't wait to see how that affects this space and improves my blogging. Keep your eyes peeled lovely readers!
Are you a blogger? Have you ever been to a workshop?
