The Unexpected Benefits of Blogging


Since I started a couple of years ago, a lot of things have changed. I've met a lot of new people. I've learned lots about SEO, Social Media and content marketing, I've been invited to some fab events and trips, I've finally found a reason to start taking pictures again on my holidays. But the main thing that has changed is it that in my spare time, I now have a reason to switch off the TV and get my arse off my couch and explore this wonderful city I live in.

  •  I've been invited to join many a London city tour and seen the quirky side of London. I've learned about the history of drinking on a pub tour, I've seen the quirky side of London and even been taken around town to see a bunch of toilets on a London Loo Tour.

  • I've gone REALLY out of my way to eat around the world without leaving London for my foodie blog series. I probably never would've gone to Leytonstone or Barking, but you gotta do what you gotta do if you want Romanian or Ukrainian food.

  • Through the LDNBloggersTea networking meetups, I have had more afternoon teas than I’d ever had in my life ever. Thanks to the lovely Selena Jones and Melanie of Sunny in London, I've been to some pretty awesome afternoon tea spots and we've gotten especially sconed during the tea sessions created by Chef Ben.

  2. Hi there! You posted right after me in the link up so I thought I would come by and say hello! I totally agree -- having a blog has made me get out there and explore my own backyard. I love having an excuse to go out and explore, to eat good food, and drink more coffee!

  3. Can you believe I'd never been to a proper London tea before the London bloggers tea events? Blogging has opened up a whole new world of scrumptious delights for me.
