      I would like to thank the  Sincere Traveler  for my nomination. It’s really made my week start with a spring. I love reading other bloggers post, and it’s great to get recognition for your own. Check out their European adventures The  sincere traveler .  Why I started blogging    I’ve spent years travelling the world, but never thought I would write about my travels. After a terrible start to 2018 I moved from London to Brighton and started working for a travel company.    I was asked if I could write about my time in Chicago for their website as they had no blogs on this wonderful city. I was given a guide line to follow and found so much joy from putting my experiences down on paper (well the keyboard)! And so my passion began.    Starting a blog has felt like such an achievement through a dark year. I can’t begin to explain the pleasure writing has bought to my life. Having a new purpose and excitement. It makes me explore even more and soak up my surroundings so I can share with others.    Advice for those starting out.    1. Think about what brings joy to your life and focus on that for your posts. When your enthusiastic about your subject it shows to your readers. Don’t just write for the sake of it.    2.  Get a good computer and camera. I currently do everything on my phone and it is harder when your researching and reading on a small phone. Quality pictures on your post will also grab your readers attention. Both these items are on my Christmas list!    The bloggers that have inspired me along my brief writing journey that I would like to nominate are...   @vibeslifeus  https://vibeslifeus.com/   @theyellowbills  https://theyellowbills.com/   @travelersincer  https://sinceretraveler.com/    @yvonnewabai   https://yvonnewairimuwabai.weebly.com/   @rinakay   https://rinakay.wordpress.com/   @wheresmytent  https://wheresmytent.com/    @womenwithgifts   https://womenwithgifts.org/    I look forward to connecting with so many others in this wonderful community xx

Why I started blogging  

I’ve spent years travelling the world, but never thought I would write about my travels. After a terrible start to 2018 I moved from London to Brighton and started working for a travel company.  

I was asked if I could write about my time in Chicago for their website as they had no blogs on this wonderful city. I was given a guide line to follow and found so much joy from putting my experiences down on paper (well the keyboard)! And so my passion began.  

Starting a blog has felt like such an achievement through a dark year. I can’t begin to explain the pleasure writing has bought to my life. Having a new purpose and excitement. It makes me explore even more and soak up my surroundings so I can share with others.
