I’ll put the kettle on.
You know how I was studying how to be a better blogger by taking the Blog With Pip course? Well, I’ve graduated! The last month has been bloggergising*! I’ve learnt many new things about how my blog works in the back-end and how to keep my content interesting for you.
I’ve spent a lot of time reflected upon why and how I write – something I hadn’t really done since I finished university. I’ve rediscovered how joyful writing is.
One unexpected thing, was finding a bunch of new bloggy friends on this course. Though entirely virtual, Pip Lincolne, from Meet Me at Mikes, has created an entirely real-feel class environment. Let me introduce you to some of the characters from our class:
- There is Michelle from That Summer Feeling who hails from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast – one of my heart’s homes. Her blog makes me feel at home: a home by the seaside, during a relaxing summer. What more could anyone want?
- There is Annette, from I Give You The Verbs, who is the class social butterfly and always available for a chat and to link people together with positive words of encouragement.
- Then there is Sarah, from The Imperfect Crafter, who is perfectly delightful and entirely inspirational, just by being her sweet self.
- To the side of the classroom, I picture that I’d always sit with Jess from Are We There Yet? and Cat from That Bettie Thing. I feel like we really connected from day one of class and like we sat together each lunch trading lunchbox treats. We traded notes that made us giggle and we made doodles in our notepads about the blogs we had crushes on. They’ll be my #PipsterBestiesForever.
These class mates are pretty amazing finds, aren’t they? Talking about amazing finds – another of my class mates, Kitty from Polka Dots and Frocks, has recently posted about the ultimate unexpected amazing find: a new pet, you can check it out at this link, here, and add your own amazing find to her conversation about amazing finds!
Wanna see one of the cool things I’ve learnt in class? I’ve learnt how to make buttons that link to sites! Like the one below… go on… click on it – it will go somewhere! Cool, hey?
So, Pip suggested that each student writes a post entitled a cup of tea with me, so that we can sit down together with a cup of tea and you can learn a little more about me. Meanwhile, I’ve been rabbiting on about the course and the beautiful people I’ve met, instead – whoops!
If you want to read more about me, you can on my About Me page, but basically: I’m currently travelling full-time around Australia, in Sheila (a caravan) and I like cooking and eating, a LOT.
*Bloggergising: a fictitious word to describe the feeling of your bloggy self being energised.
Have you been energised by anything exciting lately? I’d love to hear about it!
