Why I don’t like calling myself a blogger – interesting stuff. I have to admit to feeling like this too sometimes. Usually when people I meet casually (ie taxi drivers, people at parties, check out staff at the supermarket) ask me what I do for a living I say I’m a writer, mainly because saying ‘blogger’ usually results in the dreaded “Huh? What’s that then?” conversation!

Have you found any useful or inspirational links online this week? I’d love to see them linked in the comments – don’t be shy!

  1. For me, I always find it strange introducing to some people I know as ‘a wedding photographer’ – like I need to educate them about how I do it differently and that I’m not some old bloke with a suit and a backpack. Funny that, as those in my wider friendship circle are those who are most likely to be in need of a non-trad photographer. 🙂 By the way, loving the business bites section each week – really inspiring.

  2. I found this so useful – thank you. I’ve had blogging experience in the past but never dedicated much thought to optimising it and making it the most fun it can be – and also the most refined.

    I particularly found the five easy ideas and apps links the most helpful.

    Thanks, Jen

  3. Great collection of inspiration as always – I just come here every week and it saves me so much time! So thanks 🙂

    Hmm, when people ask me what I do and I say ‘photographer’, often they look at me fondly like I’m a small girl with a disposable camera and a whim. Bless, her, eh?

  4. KAT! Thanks so much for featuring me here, you rock love! <3 Can't wait to check out these awesome resources AND might I add that your new blog design looks INCREDIBLE?!?!? How did I miss this?!?! Gorgeous, gorgeous and GORGEOUS.
