Hello. This is one of my first blog events and I would be lying if I said I was excited. I mean, I’m really looking forward to it but at the forefront of my mind all I can think is ‘Holy crap I will have to speak to people. About blogging!’ I’m a very inexperienced blogger who is slowly navigating the blogosphere and learning everyday. This is why I mainly wanted to come. I need to push myself. To admit that blogging is something I am passionate about and not my dirty little secret. Enough waffle, here’s the answers to those get to know me questions before I turn you away from my over anxious, eager to please self!
Q1. What is the best thing about blogging?
