I attended a superblogger's masterclass tonight and got some great insights and advice from people who have been doing this successfully for a long time. Mine started off as a sort of on-line diary with no expectations other than to share my experiences and inspire you to get out there and see the world, even if it's just in your own country. Travel really does broaden your horizons and allow you to appreciate other cultures.
I can't believe I started my blog two years ago now! It started as a suggestion from a photographer friend who said I should write one as I always seemed to be out of the country (I think it was supposed to be a bit of a joke!) I guess I do travel quite a bit and usually post a selection of my holiday snaps on facebook for my friends and family to see.
Who knew that once the seed had been planted in my mind it wasn't going to go away? I've noticed that when I get an idea that I like, I stick with it and it constantly evolves and excites me. I love to write and it's absolutely true too that my flip flops have been on every single trip from the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean to the hurricane flooded practice courts at Flushing Meadows for the US Open Tennis.
My next jaunt is to the mediterranean island of Crete next month so I look forward to sharing that trip with you. After the wintery weather we've been having here over the past few days it will be great to get away!
I now have a facebook page to coincide with my blog! Please feel free to join!
