Where has the week gone? Seriously, wasn’t it just Monday yesterday? I feel like the weeks been a blur as once again my dear little J has been ill and at home (Winter please be over soon). Though I love him to bits and am forever thankful of every minute I get to spend with him, it also means that my time gets swallowed up in large chunks when he’s sick and unfortunately something always has to give. This week it’s been today’s post for the – 5 things I’ve learnt. But it’ll be back next week.
So, I’ll be off to Stockholm this afternoon for the Meet the Blogger convention where I will be able to meet lots of other lovely like minded people that share the same passion as me, Interiors and Blogging. Although I am glad to be going, part of me feels like I just want to recover from the week I’ve just had. I’m sure the feeling of excitement and trepidation will come to me once I get on the plane.
Why trepidation I hear you ask? Well to be honest, I feel like a fraud. I mean, I’m not a blogger am I? I’ve only been writing for a few months and I have no interesting mentionable experience that would be remotely interesting to anyone. There are so many super talented people that will be there, rock stars of the blogging world with a gazillion followers, well known interior designers and professional stylists who have done the rounds over and over again.
So this morning I ask myself why am I going to bother to get myself packed and board that plane? And the answer is, because through this blog, I’ve met some of the most unbelievably supportive and encouraging people. People like you who have taken the time to read, comment and email me with warm wishes and positive feedback. You have given me the strength to try new things and go out of my comfort zone. So even though I’m not a blogging rockstar or famous Interior Stylist, I’m damn well going to talk to them and everyone else and learn as much as I can from these people who have so much experience to share. Because, I have a lot to learn and I want to share it with you. And who knows, I might make a few friends along the way.
Have a lovely weekend. As I’ll be away there will be no post on Monday. Till Tuesday. xDoris
P.S. I’ll be on Instagram and Twitter over the weekend if you want to follow some of my adventures, just follow me through the social media buttons on the top right corner of this site. Till next week…
