Living arrows III







Being apart of Living arrows to a complete honour. I am contributing to the iheartsnapping website along side some of my blog crushes and with the most inspirational people/mothers/photographers.

Just over a year ago, i was blogging away and had no idea about any other UK bloggers or communities. I actually thought i must be one of the only ones as all my blog reads were american blogs. I came across Tots100 and went to a blog summit. From there, this whole new blogging community opened up right in front of me. I was completely overwhelmed at the blog summit but there were two bloggers who really made me feel at ease. Lucy and Katie. Lucy had tweeted me before the summit as i shared my handmade business cards and i, luckily, sat right next to them in one of the classes. I plucked up the courage to say hello at the end of the class and liked them both instantly (plus they both had the cutest little ladies with them!).

When i was asked by them to be apart of Living arrows and i heart snapping team, i was over the moon. It made me feel like i had something interesting to share and that my blog was somehow "good". I often felt and sometimes still do feel like i work so hard at my blog and never manage to get anywhere. But to know that other bloggers deem my blog good enough to be apart of something so wonderful keeps me going and makes me strive to be better. It has made me realise how much i completely love blogging and how i want to give working hard at it and make something of my little space in the corner of the internet.

  5. i have found some fantastic people and amazing blogs via blogging, but i've not actually met anyone yet. so many events and meetups are too far away from me so i can never afford travel and/or accommodation.

    anyway, you take the loveliest photos and i'm glad i found your blog :)
