Today this blog and my mug were featured in the local paper – the Gloucestershire Echo.
I tweeted on Wednesday about how I had spent the morning doing a phone interview and having my picture taken at my Uni. Well this morning I was the loon buying multiple copies of the same newspaper, good thing they each came with a free small can of ting today! Bonus!
In all seriousness it was lovely being asked to talk to the paper and I had fun having my picture taken by Michael. I cannot help but get sentimental at the moment, due to my imminent status as a university graduate, but it is exceptionally nice being recognised for something I have put a lot of time and effort into.
Since winning the blog awards 2 weeks ago, some exciting opportunities have come forward and it has made me very excited for the future of this blog and my own personal career! I am so grateful to Gemma and Becki for creating and running the awards, having a set-up that recognises a range of different blog topics has been fantastic in bringing together different bloggers.
So If you are thinking of starting a blog and are unsure about what you want to write about, I would say without a shadow of doubt – do it on something you are passionate and interested in!
Have any of you featured in your local paper before?
