Hi guys! Welcome back to another week of Post Comment Love where Stephanie and I give your posts that extra bit of love. Every week we look forward to seeing what posts get linked up and every week we have such a range of topics it's a pleasure to read. Thank you for coming back week after week to link up your posts, and if you're new here - welcome!

I have finally recovered from Blogfest '16, I think last night I managed to catch up on sleep and am feeling back to normal now. It's always tiring to go to the blogging conferences in London, I have to get to the train station at about 6:30am, spend a few hours travelling, then there's the conference itself and then back on train to go home. I usually get home after 9pm whenever I go to a conference in London so it's quite a long day.

It was a great day though, despite some questionable comments about men. I enjoyed listening to the sessions and learnt a lot from Emily Quinton in her photography session. I don't feel like I'm a terrible blogger for wanting to take all my photos with my phone because she said she takes the majority of her photos with her phone! Yay! Like I said, I learnt a lot in that session and hopefully that will show in the photos I take from now on.

Putting some tips into practise

Of course there were other sessions that helped too, from SEO to brand awareness, my head felt like it was going to explode by the end of the day. As I said in my post though the best bit about the whole day was meeting up with wonderful blogging buddies and meeting those people I've only ever spoken to online.

I was far more confident this year and it made such a difference to my enjoyment of the whole experience. I was able to walk around smiling and chatting to brands, I said hello to a few people who I never would have last time, I felt like I belonged.

A lot of people have mentioned that the panel's comments were a bit too much and they should've been more selective about their language and while I agree I have to say it was refreshing to listen to women bigging up women. I don't agree with what was said about men, not at all, and I don't think we need to big up women by dissing men, but I did enjoy the praise of women. It needs to be said more often. For that reason I'll be back next year.

The contents of the Blogfest goody bag!


As for the rest of the week, well, LP put a shoebox full of toys together for Operation Christmas Child and gave away one of his old favourite toys. He was so into it and couldn't wait to take the shoebox to the place we needed to drop it off (which we did on Tuesday), he had a huge smile on his face when the man thanked him.

Other than that it's been fairly quiet on the home front, lots of cooking and cleaning but not any events as such. BP has started watching Once Upon a Time and he LOVES it, but I wonder if that's more because of its rating rather than the content? I don't know, either way it keeps him good!

How was your week?
Did you attend Blogfest '16, did I see you there? If not, sorry I missed you!
