What inspires me to Blog?

What Inspires me to Blog?

This week I’m attending my first blogging conference, ProBlogger. I’m so excited to attend the event, to meet other bloggers and to learn a lot while I’m there.

It’s on the Gold Coast so means a little kid-free trip away – double the excitement! I’m also looking forward to meeting some of my blogging buddies too.

Since I started blogging in 2013, I’ve learned so much about what I like to write about, the technical side of blogging, how to grow a blog and more.

I have so much more still to learn though!

I’m also sooo excited that I have been sponsored to attend ProBlogger by a fantastic brand that I’ve worked with numerous times in the UK and Australia – more on that to come!

I didn’t think I’d be able to attend ProBlogger. When the tickets were released I was in the middle of my treatment for breast cancer, feeling awful and not knowing if I’d be well enough to go. I had no idea what my situation would be at all actually. I put off booking but every time I saw other bloggers talking about booking tickets and what they were looking forward to, I was so envious. I really started to regret not going.

The more I read about the event, the speakers and the sessions, the more I really wanted to go.

Treatment ended and thankfully I’m feeling amazing! I’ve finished chemo and radiation and everything is going so well!

So I booked tickets last minute and I’m going on Thursday.

ProBlogger have challenged us to talk about what inspires us to blog. I’ve talked before about why I started blogging and how my blog has changed over the years but what I loved about this challenge is that we got to try out Shoebox Timelines! It’s such an easy way to create your own slideshow with slides, music, photos and videos.

I’ve created my own short slideshow which sums up nicely why I blog.

You can view it here:

You can create your own Shoebox timeline and slideshow here.

This is my entry to an AWESOME competition that ProBlogger and Shoebox are running. The winner will receive an ‘Ultimate Blogger Kit’ valued at $6,000 – can you imagine?! The prize pack includes the most amazing photography equipment that I would love to have.

I hope you like my little slideshow and I’ll be posting more on my ProBlogger sponsor very soon so watch this space!

If you’re a blogger, what inspires you to blog?
