My Friday Five

I am starting a little series called “My Friday Five”!

Each Friday, I will create a list of five things…please feel free to join in if you want to…the more the merrier!

As I have just finished taking part in a blogging course, and thoroughly enjoyed it, it seem pertinent to make this week’s topic “Five Things I love About Blogging”!

And I have to admit in the end, I found I had many more than five, but I have been good and narrowed it down to the required number.

So here goes….and please note, these are in no particular order…




The joy of having my own corner of the world, which is totally mine…I can write what I like, when I like.  There is something like 500.000 new blog posts created every day…and that’s only on WordPress… so I am only a very, very, very small voice, but this is mine and I am proud of it!




Getting to know other bloggers through visiting their blogs, and joining in conversations. I am honoured to have “met” three fabulous bloggers this way…Ronnie from Pink Ronnie, Sonia from Life Love and Hiccups and Bron from Maxabella Loves.

And recently, I have been lucky to actually meet some fellow bloggers face to face…I did this for the first time last week and was totally nervous…but it turned out to be a wonderful morning, and I can’t wait to do it again!

I am the one with the glasses…

Blogging Group




Keeps my mind active – this works on two levels…I find now I am always on the look out for blog topics..have learned to carry a notebook with me at all times… plus it allows me to learn the mechanics of how a blog works! I am not afraid to look “under the hood” and get my hands dirty with a little coding!




It gives me the excuse to go shopping, drink tea and go out for brunch…oh I mean do some research…I always love finding new things that interest me, and I am enjoying discovering wonderful shops such as Elise Designs and Shopsui.

I am getting braver at eating out…I have severe lactose intolerance…and have discovered wonderful cafes such as Fussy Pots!

And well, I never turn down a good cup of tea!




I have a reason to continue to take photos…constantly…at least some of them now have a home, and will be seen by others, not just hide on my hard drive…

Tea and Camera

So that’s my Friday Five for this week!

I am very much a newbie in the blogging world, but hopefully over time, my voice will be heard amongst the crowd!

Are you a blogger? Let me know what the five things you love about blogging are  – I would love to know!
