This week has been a busy one for blogger events; I managed to make it along to three different events including Rainbow Room International where I got my hair curled vintage-style, Snuggle Muffin (you can read the full post here!) where I stuffed my face with delicious cake, and the #EdinBlog event organised by Digitas LBi where I learnt all about SEO, analytics, advertising and branding your blog, working with brands and all sorts of other blog-related things. I’d like to think I have a basic grasp of all that kinda thing, but hearing talks from experts in the blogging and digital marketing world has made me realise there’s so much more I could be doing. I’m feeling super inspired now and have added a few things to my to-do list to improve my blog and aid in my quest for world domination. Or something like that. I really enjoyed the day and have picked up lots of little tips which I’m sure will come in handy and – as always – it was nice to have a chat about blogging with people who actually understand what blogging is.
After some drinks with the LBi team (they even have their own kind of beer!), Laura, Lynsey, Roisin and I headed round to the Roseleaf for some food and drinks. I’ve been pretty good at eating healthily this week (and even doing some exercise, what is the world coming to?!) but had to give in to my cravings for a burger and chips. Yum. I took some photos so hopefully I’ll get round to writing up a full post about the Roseleaf soon!
I’m determined to stick to Youtubing regularly this year and have kicked things off with my January Favourites video. Head over to my channel to subscribe and keep up to date with future videos! I think I’m going to invest in some kind of lighting as it seems to be permanently dark here which can make finding time to film pretty difficult – any suggestions for something reasonably priced and not ridiculously huge? Oh and if you have any particular requests for videos you’d like to see from me, leave me a comment and let me know!
What have you been up to this week?
