Hey everyone and welcome to anyone new here at Steph’s World. This is a just little update to say that I’m a guest blogger now! I am so excited to have this opportunity!
I’m A Guest Blogger! – My Story
One day back in June I was scrolling through my Twitter feed of thousands of post about Bullet Journals, Cats, The EU Referendum and Twitter chats; one particular tweet stood out to me. One by a fellow blogger looking for some Guest Bloggers to keep her blog nicely topped-up while she was on holiday.
I jumped in quickly seeing that there was only one place left to fill and tweeted Gwennan to see if I could have the last slot. As I have only been blogging since March, just over a month and half, I thought she would say no and offer the slot to someone with more experience. I was thrilled when I got a message to say I managed to get a slot on the blog! I was literally smiling from ear-to-ear. A blog and blogger which I admire was going to let me write for her blog! I was thrilled!
Then the dread set in! What the heck was I supposed to write?
I wrote down some idea’s and dismissed most of them. I didn’t want to propose writing anything that had already been done on Gwennan’s blog and I didn’t want to write something boring. I am happy with the topic I chose and even enjoyed writing the post, even if I had nervous hands.
I sent it off to Gwennan along with some images and then I waited in anticipation. I waited a whole 8 minutes for Gwennan to reply! 8 minutes people! This woman is a whizz at replying! I couldn’t of been happier with her response. She enjoyed what I wrote and was happy with the images I supplied. From a blogger I admire, this was a huge thing for me!
My Guest Blogpost
The post I decided to write includes a little bit about my blog and also focuses around the fact that I was and still am a Newbie Blogger.
The post is called ‘10 Things I Learned As A New Blogger‘ and will be live on Saturday 16th July 2016. There is an introduction now live to Gwennan’s Guest Bloggers on her blog which you should check out.
I have also created a post on my top 5 Tips for Guest Blogging which can be found on my blog.

Another Guest Blogging Opportunity
I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to also write another 2 Guest Blogposts for the lovely Sarah from Writing & Rambling since this one, which will hopefully go live soon. As soon as I know; I will let everyone know via Twitter, Instagram and my blog.
Also, another recent opportunity to Guest Blog is with Food & Baker. Jessica and James are a Food/Lifestyle blog and I will be getting involved with their new series. More information about this will be come very soon. If you want to get involved, please message them via twitter.
