Over the Teacups #1

Under certain circumstances there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.

Blogging is an interesting world, millions of people take to their computers daily to write about whatever takes their fancy. Subjects from Motherhood to Financial Management, Beauty, Influencers, Lifestylers, Foodies, Mental Illness, Fitness, Travel, Novelists, Crafts, and the list goes on…and on…don’t forget Tea as well 😉 Strangely, or maybe not so strangely there aren’t very many Tea Bloggers, which for me is a good thing. I love the thought of bringing something new to the mix. A niche blog if you like. Along this blogging journey I have ‘met’ a wonderful bunch of people who are truly inspirational in the way they manage the demands of their everyday lives and blogging. Now you may wonder, how hard is it to blog? Well I can tell you it is a lot harder than you may think. Most of us work full time either out of the home or in the home with families, travel for work or pleasure, and navigate time zones, drafting, editing, promoting blogs, deadlines, guest blogging, supporting and administrating blogging pages…it’s exhausting! But SO much fun and I can guarantee every blogger would say you learn something new all the time just by having the courage to share.

I really like the idea of bringing together all of my blogging buddies and having a tea party. Now logistically and geographically this is nigh on impossible, so I thought I would introduce my followers to my fellow bloggers who are not only inspirational but also super supportive, uplifting and really interesting. This is the first in this series as I would like to continue to share the love as much as possible.

Have a look at these blog pages – there is something for everyone ♥

  • Amelia is rocking her blog You Can Always Start Now, she has a natural flow about the way she portrays events and things she wants to share. If you like the sound of Angel cards, meditation, real life antics and seasonal explosions then this is the place for you.
  • Kim‘s DIY Tribe is lovingly created by Kim Davis Berry and filled to the brim with crafts, rubber stamping (which is how we met) and recipes and is effectively a digital lifestyle magazine…she’s all about the glitter!

  5. This is so cool. Even though I prefer a “spot of coffee,” I love the way of pulling together a group like this works together for the good of all. Thank you for the introduction to SIBP. I have filled out the info. Hopefully they will let me in.

    1. I love the idea of a tea-themed blog. Usually, food talk bores me, but tea is a different story. I also love the blog recommendations. I’m going to check out the ones I’m not already following. Really good idea.

  6. Great post! I subscribe to a couple of those blogs and look forward to getting to know more. Love your tea blog, and yes, as a novelist with a day job, I know how challenging regular blogging can be. One a week is daunting enough for me these days 🙂
