I hope you are all well? It is that time of the week again where I have miraculously found some time to sit down and write about a new experience.
This week was pretty special as I landed a place on the Norfolk Broads with lots of local influential people, including bloggers like myself. It was a beautiful summers evening as the #Broadstours left from Wroxham. We set sail at 7pm, the sun was shining, the gin was flowing and the live music was pouring out from top deck! My advice is that you must take every opportunity in life #Getonbroad
For me, it was an amazing chance to meet some like-minded people. I spoke to lots of local mums, who were blogging about all aspects of motherhood. We exchanged our writing experiences and the most common denominator was that we all struggle to actually find time to sit down and write. Posting a story on Instagram is a much quicker way of conveying a message. It is also a great opportunity to reach a higher number of people. You may be questioning why I am therefore so dedicated to my blog?
Well…one of the top answers includes improving my writing skills. In order to keep up in today’s competitive environment, we must all continually evolve and develop our skills. I am constantly analysing my writing with the view to improve. Instagram is not the forum for sharing knowledge and making a difference, although admittedly it can help build a brand.
Writing is a hobby and meeting such a great bunch of people at the ‘#norfolkbloggers event just accelerated it. I feel more motivated than ever.
We all admitted that we don’t sit and write in a purpose built studio, den or workroom. Infact, I usually write while on the sofa or sat up in bed. This is the place I feel most comfortable and relaxed.
Writing is often interrupted by children needing a drink. Or perhaps to break up a small fight as world war II unfolds! It is not always as relaxing as I once visualised but I am sure lots of you can relate 😉
I would like to give a special shout out to those on the #Broadstours who were promoting their local businesses. My top 3 included The Rainbow Glitter Bar, Lee Van (Norfolks one-man band) and The Garden Kitchen (Independent cafe). The Canopes were devine.
Flo turns 7 tomorrow so I must dash and get some rest before the celebrations commence.
Have a good week,
