Share the Joy linky #23

Share the Joy linky #23


What happens when inspiration doesn’t knock?

I’ve just spent two days at a conference for bloggers who, like me, want to learn. In all honesty I wasn’t inspired by all the sessions I went to. A nugget of information here, a titbit I could use there… but not what I would call real INSPRIATION.

There were sessions that I loved and I’ll be writing about them soon, but most importantly I was blessed to be with an amazing group of women who are themselves inspiring and who encouraged me to take the next step, out of my comfort zone and into something amazing.

There are going to be some changes around here. I’m opening the door.

If inspiration doesn't knock build a door


Right, on to the link up!

Thank you so much to everyone that joined in last week and I’m sorry if in all the excitement of Britmums Live I haven’t gotten around to your post yet! I’m still loving reading all the joyful posts and I hope that sharing the joy brightens your day too.

I also want to say a huge thank you as well to Tinuke from Circus Mums who co-hosted with me last week! If you’d like to be a co-host just pop me an email at or leave a comment below.

Don’t forget that all genres are welcome here – new posts or old favourites. Posts that might have made you laugh out loud, opened your heart, raised your spirits or just made you smile!

Sharing my joy

Each week, I’ll pick a favorite post and feature it on the following week’s Share the Joy link up (I’ve also made a  where you’ll find all my favorites in one place).

Mum in a nutshell

Last week Mum in a Nutshell shared To Dream A Little Dream which is so exciting and fits my theme this week! Can’t wait to hear more about this from you Ali!

This week I’m sharing a post about one of my bucketlist destinations, Barbados and an introduction to the healthy habits app – NOOM – that I’m an Ambassador for in the UK (including a delicious recipe and a FREE blogger trial!)

Let’s Share the Joy!

1) Link up posts that have brought you JOY – Writing them might have made you laugh out loud, opened your heart, raised your spirits or just made you smile. All genres are welcome, new posts or old favourites and as many links as you like!

2) Link back to me either by including the Share the Joy badge (below) or a text link back to this Share the Joy linky page in your own post.

3) Please comment on one of my posts and a few others. Let’s Share the JOY through commenting as well as through our posts!

Share the Joy will run for a whole week until the following week’s linky is open, so you’ll never be too late. And don’t forget to tweet me the url to your post using the hashtag #sharethejoylinky so I can retweet it.

Feel free to invite your friends to join in – JOY is always better when it’s shared!

  1. Oh there were so many people at Britmums Live, I would’ve loved to have met you! For me as a relatively new blogger there was lots of information to get to grips with, the SEO advanced session being one of the most gripping even if I only understood every other word!! But what I did get out was the connection with other bloggers. The social aspect of it was so very special!
    Thanks for hosting the linky xx

  2. Love the door quote – and I’m rather partial to the actual door too. Looking forward to seeing what’s coming, I’m sure it’ll be a success -thanks for hosting too lovely x

  3. I think for some of the experienced bloggers there is less to be taken away from the sessions (its difficult to satisfy new and expert audience in one session) – Ive heard a few people saying what you have…but that they loved just hanging out. It was only my second time, and I got huge amounts from almost all the sessions I attended. That said, I enjoyed it so much more this year – I skipped a couple of sessions and hung out in the craft area.

  4. Though I am sorry that you didn’t find more inspiration at your Britmums session, I’m glad that you found your motivation through fellow bloggers. Sometimes that all it takes–no fancy seminar or tutorials–just the company of smart and inspiring people to get you started. I’m excited to see where this new open door leads you. Thanks for hosting! Lovely to be a part of the community you set up for us week after week. Have a fantastic Monday!
