Join us in welcoming her to her very first FBC and find out more about her blog here!
What are you looking forward to learning and enjoying at FBC this year?
There are so many great speakers at FBC.
I don’t have particular expectations, I find conferences really inspiring! There are so many different angles you can look at for the same thing.
Is blogging your full time job? If not, what is your day job?
Blogging is not my full time job, I work as UX designer in an advertising agency. I think that probably every blogger at least once thought about turning their blogs into a career, but lately it got me thinking about how all those tips on becoming a better blogger puts a lot of pressure on bloggers. With our busy life we should remember what got us into blogging in the first place; usually it was about having fun, learning new things and meeting new people.
Blogging changed my life in a way that it made my move to Ireland easier. I was blogging for a while in Polish and I followed a lot of blogs in English, so when we moved – at least the food vocabulary was not a problem. Also, before coming to Ireland I got in touch with Clare from An American in Ireland and she introduced me to the Irish Food Blogger Association! From there, I’ve met other Irish bloggers, it gave me sense of community. Also, Clare’s posts were both hilarious and informative and set my expectations. It was a great relief to know that even native English speakers may struggle with understanding the Irish accent!
I would love to say cheesecake, but I need to say mulled beer, it got so much buzz this winter and it’s a perfect treat for long, cold evenings.
I follow probably far too many blogs. Just to name few: Joy the Baker – one of the first food blogs I’ve followed, Farmette – for beautiful, atmospheric photos from Ireland, Strawberries from Poland – inspiring blog in Polish with great writing and nice photography, What should I have for breakfast – for great photos and breakfast inspiration, Humming Bird High and … I could go on and on!
The blogs that I find the most interesting are the ones that have a real voice. Most blogs I read are a mix of food, lifestyle and travel but probably because the food has a much wider context, it never exists on its own. The books we read, the places we visit, people we meet, even the weather influences how and what we eat.
