Well Voices of 2013 has come to an end after an amazing year. It has been a year of firsts for me: first blogging competition, first time I have made a top 100 list, first time I have flown interstate for a blogging event, first time meeting some of my favourite bloggers, AND, first time I have won anything. More on the Voices event later (man Kidspot know how to throw a good soiree), but for those that have been following my little Voices travels, I was selected as Ford Australia Sponsor’s Choice winner of a Ford (yes, A CAR) to drive around for the next 12 months for my efforts in the Ford Choose Your Own Adventure Challenge. Still pinching myself. I’ll share all the details shortly, so much to tell you!
I travelled to Melbourne with the lovely Sash from inked in colour and Emma from My Darling Lemon Thyme. We walked, talked and photographed (boy did we photograph) our asses off. The great thing about travelling with likeminded creatives is, they don’t bat an eyelid at you constantly stopping to snap a gorgeous building or a cool person with pink hair or even a half eaten hotdog. As Emma has mentioned before about being around likeminded blogging folk, I think I “found my people”.
There are so many highlights from the weekend, the biggest of course being awarded a car for 12 months (seriously, you should see what I am driving now, this is a big deal!). Being in a room with people I have adored online for years and being able to spend the weekend talking about the creative things that get my heart pumping was sheer joy. Of course I have four million photographs (okay maybe not quite that many) to share with you, I will do them over a few posts so as not to bore you. Meanwhile: Melbourne through my lens.
