I belong to a number of blogging pages on Facebook, and for the past few days, people have been posting Secret Santa info. I’ve seen a craft one, a beauty one, and a general gift-giving one. I thought – how cool would it be to have a bookish one?! So, instead of waiting to see if one pops up, I thought I’d organise one myself!
On Saturday I spent a few hours in Cardiff at one of the busiest events I think Cardiff has ever seen. In case you don’t know, famous and respected children’s author Roald Dahl was born in Cardiff. To celebrate his 100th birthday, there was a massive two-day event that spanned the majority of the city centre. There were street performers, Mr Fox walking on a tightrope and even a giant peach!
The wonderful Aoife and I realised today that we currently live very near each other, so we thought it would be great to try and organise a little blogger meet-up!
So, as the banner says, if you’re from Cardiff or surrounding areas (Newport (where I’m from), Bristol, Hereford, the whole length of the UK, however far you’re willing to travel!) and fancy coming to say hi and grabbing a drink with us, please let us know and we can arrange a venue. It’ll be in the evening so if you’ve got work or exams, it’ll be a nice chilled evening for you!
I’ve never been to a bloggers meet-up before so it would be so much fun to be able to organise one and make some new blogging friends. Whether you’re a fellow book blogger, a food blogger, beauty, lifestyle, media or anything else blogger, you’re more than welcome to come along!
Tonight is World Book Night! According to the World Book Night website, “World Book Night is an annual celebration of reading and books that takes place on 23 April. It sees passionate volunteers give out hundreds of thousands of books in their communities to share their love of reading with people who don’t read regularly or own books. World Book Night is run by The Reading Agency, a national charity that inspires people to become confident and enthusiastic readers to help give them an equal chance in life.”
