This week, BritMums are asking bloggers ‘What is the best thing that has happened to you as a result of blogging?’ This is quite easy for me to answer. It is all the wonderful people I have got to meet through blogging.
I have had the opportunity to meet fellow bloggers and celebrities at such events as the BBC Good Food Show (not once but twice!), attend a cookbook launch and I have (with a great deal of help from Louise of Comida Y Vida) been able to set up the Midlands Food Bloggers. A group to help support and promote everything to do with the Midlands and its food. I would not have been able to do any of this without having started my food blog. I am very lucky and I now have many more friends through blogging than I ever thought was possible.
One of the main reasons for me setting up a pregnancy/parenting blog was to meet new people in a similar situation to me and I have been very lucky to have met lots of fantastic people. People like Wholesome Cook, Cafe Bebe, Simply Hayley and many more who are always there if I have a pregnancy niggle that is concerning me. I know they will be there for me as I embark on the next stage of the adventure: parenthood and looking after a newborn. This is quite simply the best thing about blogging for me and it is the people you get to meet. I look forward to meeting many more people in the coming years 🙂
