Quotes - Inspriation

I’ve taken a proactive step towards my personal and professional development by enrolling in the Edinburgh Long Life Learning course. This unique program offers the flexibility of part-time study, allowing me to select courses that align with my interests and accumulate credits towards earning a certificate.

While the course provides valuable learning materials, I’ve always held the belief that the most effective way to truly grasp a subject is to immerse oneself in practical application. Theory is essential, but the transformative power of hands-on experience cannot be underestimated.

By combining the theoretical knowledge gained through the course with real-world practice, I’m confident that I can enhance my skills and understanding in a meaningful way. This approach not only enriches my learning journey but also equips me with the practical expertise necessary to excel in my chosen field.

So, as I embark on this educational adventure, I’m excited to embrace the blend of classroom knowledge and practical application, knowing that it will shape me into a well-rounded and capable learner. With each step forward, I am confident that I’m paving the way for personal growth and success.

When I arrived in Edinburgh back in June 2012, I was uncertain about my career path and going through a challenging time that left me lacking motivation. It was during this period of uncertainty that I made a bold decision to start my own blog.

With no prior knowledge or experience in blogging, I turned to my trusty tutor, Google, to guide me through the process. In the beginning, I’m sure people wondered what on earth I was talking about!

But now, I’m thrilled to share that my blog has amassed over 12K followers, opening doors to collaborations with brands and companies I never thought possible. All of this simply by being true to myself, embracing honesty, and taking that leap of faith. You never know until you try!

Many of us have experienced jobs where our talents were underappreciated or felt we were progressing slower than others. However, I firmly believe that with true determination and hard work, we can achieve our goals. Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re not good enough for that promotion or not creative or academic enough. Remember, even Walt Disney was once told he lacked creativity!

Introducing the Edinburgh Bloggers Conference—a project that started like many others, with me, my laptop, and of course, my cats. With a clear vision in mind and the guidance of Colin from Social Tailor, we brainstormed and planned at the Edinburgh Apple store in May.

As the pieces of the puzzle came together, I reached out to companies I had previous work experience with, and their support along the way was invaluable. However, I soon realized that I couldn’t do it all alone, and that’s when I assembled an incredible team to work alongside me.

It goes to show that success isn’t solely determined by intelligence or the number of certificates one holds. Put in the effort, and it will undoubtedly pay off.

After countless hours of hard work, fueled by coffee and the occasional cat cuddle, I’m proud to announce that we now have over 17 sponsors supporting us on the event day. Additionally, we’ve gathered an impressive lineup of 13 speakers, two of whom have graciously taken time out of their busy schedules to join us at the fabulous venue, Whitespace, located in the heart of Edinburgh.

So, join us on this exciting journey, and let’s prove that passion, dedication, and a sprinkle of Scottish charm can pave the way to incredible achievements. The Edinburgh Bloggers Conference is set to be an unforgettable event, and we can’t wait to see you there!


The event itself involves panel workshops, a ‘talk show’, keynote speakers, Irn-Bru pink pong, an open bar, workshops, and fantastic attendance!
