Letter from the Editor: February

blogging tips uk

It feels like a while since I wrote one of these, huh? It’s nice to be back!

Just like that, February has rolled around, which can only mean one thing - the Blog and Beyond roadshow starts this month! In fact, it starts TOMORROW. That’s kind of terrifying. In a couple of hours I’ll be heading off to the airport to catch my flight to Birmingham for our first event tomorrow. I’m not going to lie, I’m really nervous, but it’s going to be amazing to meet so many amazing bloggers.

After Birmingham, I’ll be heading to Leeds and Manchester next week before wrapping up with Glasgow and Newcastle the week after. There are still some tickets available, but not many, so if you want to come along be sure to grab yours asap. If you want to find out more about what’s going on, be sure to head to the roadshow page and check out the lineup for each event!

It’s safe to say that I’m glad February is a short month, because I’m definitely going to need a rest when it’s over 😅

The events will be taking a bit of a back seat after the roadshow, partly because I’ll be in the final few weeks of my degree, and partly because I’ll need a bit of time to recover from the travelling. Instead, I’m going to spend a while focusing on creating more great resources for the site - so keep your eyes peeled for those.

Outside of the events we’ve got plenty of exciting things happening online. The February edition of the Blog & Beyond book club is kicking off shortly and we’ll be reading An Edited Life by Anna Newton. Our community section is growing all the time, with plenty for you to take part in! You can send us your blogging agony aunt letters, take part in the meet the blogger series or even submit a blogging diary to the site.

As always, we’re on the look out for submissions from brilliant bloggers like you to join our team of writers, so if you have any great ideas for posts about anything to do with blogging then please get in touch!

Otherwise, you can find us chatting away in the Facebook group every single day, retweeting your blog posts on Twitter and hanging out on Instagram too.

Hopefully, I’ll be seeing plenty of you this month at the roadshow events, and I’ll see you again for another catch up when March arrives!

Love, Charlotte x
