As a new blogger I am often overwhelmed by the support and kindness that I have received from the blogging community. I have been nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger award by the beautiful and talented Maria; please take the time to visit her fantastic blog http://mariabrinkley.com/ and explore Australia from the comfort of her backyard to yours 😉 I love these awards because they give me the opportunity to discover new blogs and corners of cyberspace previously unexplored.
I started my blog this year, as I have always dreamt about writing, or as people who know me may eloquently put it “She always has a lot to say..” In my early twenties I was the website editor for a major record company and so got to experience the joy of writing, interviewing and reviewing. Although a fun experience, the reality was that the publication’s ultimate goal was to promote and market the corporation’s artists and interests, so in many ways my writing lost its voice whilst my marketing skills flourished.
Fast forward ten something years and we are in the age of hashtags, tweets and selfies, EVERYONE has a voice (and maybe we are now all products of self promotion?). To me, the beauty of blogging is the freedom to express your view and opinions and share and find out opinions, experiences and perspectives of others. I love it… Just this morning, I had tea in Turkey and looked at foliage in Devon. I guess, welcome to the age of voyeurism… Feel free to take a peek into the delights and tribulations of a thirty something living in Brixton, London xx
