Building an Inspired Community!

So as you may {or may not} know, I spent my Friday and Saturday last week at the ProBlogger event in Melbourne.  It was 2 days of knowledge sharing, inspiration, fun, cocktails, great conversations, laughs, and meeting amazing bloggers from around Australia!

When you go to an event like this it reminds us that we're sharing a little piece of ourselves with the world and that it has value.  I've found the blogging community to be so supportive, encouraging and open to helping where ever they can.  It's so refreshing to be surrounded by people that want you to succeed and go out of their way to try and support you in your quest to achieve a life that if full, with ongoing challenges and learnings  in order to develop a life you love and a community that is truly special.

I started this blog when I was on maternity leave the first time around and was looking to connect with others.  It worked and over time it has evolved.  My blog has always been a place where I love to share the things that I love that include all things fashion, lifestyle and career but there has never been a designed destination or goal.  If there was one major point that came out of this weekend for me it was to have a goal.  A clear, defined goal so that you know if you're heading in the right direction.  This may be a work in progress for me! In the meantime I'm meeting amazing people, learning new lessons, develop my skills in different areas and building up my networks!

To the amazing chicks that made this weekend so great! I look forward to staying in touch and keeping up with all of your brilliants blogs, sharing experiences and hopefully collaborating in the future.

The Maha crew - thanks for a great night!
