Blogging community

I've only been blogging for around 2 months now, but already I feel welcomed by the blogging community. Through and their bloggers' group, and people who's blogs I've stumbled upon along the way, I've already 'met' some wonderful, inspiring bloggers who've offered me support, friendship and advice during my short time as a blogger, and for this I'm truly grateful. I started my blog during a time which has been quite emotionally difficult for me, in order for me to work through my feelings, and I think it's good for me to do this. I could've just written down my thoughts, problems and worries privately, but I'm so glad I decided to start a blog; my followers have made me realise that I'm not alone. You've also helped me take a step back and look for and write about the positive thank you!

In a similar vein, a couple of weeks ago, the lovely Rosie gave me a blog award. For this, I'm supposed to:

  1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
  2. Write a post about it.
  3. Pass it on to 12 blogs that you think really deserve it.
  4. Insert the link to their blog.
  5. Send them a message to tell them about it.

So a big thanks to Rosie for giving me this award! I started my blogging journey shortly after Rosie, and her blog is one of my favourite reads at the moment. She has a number of different features on the go (I don't know how she manages to keep track!) and always has something interesting and inspiring to say. She's also a really lovely person who I keep in touch with regularly, and is one of the bloggers I refer to above.

My favourite blogs at the moment are:
  1. Uncommon Sense 
  2. Assimilate This 
  3. 2nd chance @ life? 
  4. Infectiously Optimistic 
  5. What Sadie Did 
  6.  Chronically Creative
  7. Phylor's Blog 
  8. Creaky Girl 
  9. Living for Lucy 
  10.  Touch and Tickle
  11. A Lovely Little World 
  12. Welcome to my world 

How has everyone's weekend been? Unfortunately mine has been filled with a phonetics essay which is due in tomorrow. I finished it a couple of hours ago, so am just about to go back over it, do references etc. My first exam is a week tomorrow, in a weird way I'm actually looking forward to getting it out of the way!


  1. Omgoodness, this is the sweetest thing ever. Thank-you so much! Like, I feel all warm and fuzzy inside! :)

  2. why, thank you thank you thank you for mine! i thought that i had "followed" you but i haven't - must change that immediately... by the way, am liking the colour scheme!

  3. Oh no, I typed a comment and it disappeared! Here goes again..!

    Congrats on your award!! :D And thanks so much for passing it along. I love awards, it's great to share the love :)

    I have been blogging for about the same time as you and still love "meeting" new people from around the world and sharing an insight into their life. It's funny how you almost become 'friends' just through blogging alone. Well I am glad to count you as a new blogging friend and wish you many more months of blogging happiness!!

    Sadie xx

  4. oh my gosh thank you catherine - such a lovely post and i am smiling at the things you said :-)

    Hope essays are going ok. I am strangely calm today and being quite productive!

  5. Hi Catherine,
    Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. Another good thing about blogging is that as well as getting support from other bloggers, you will be helping other people by writing about your life. It helps raise a bit of awareness and people will be glad of the support they get from you.

    That chocolate cake in the last post looks yummy! Might have to give that a go.


  6. You are such a sweetheart, Catherine! Thank you for acknowledging us; I'm honored to be lumped into a group of such courageous, strong, talented individuals.

    Rock on, Catherine.



Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog. I love receiving comments, it's nice to know I'm not just talking to myself :)! So let me know you're out there: say hello, share similar experiences or let me know if you've any hints or tips!
