I can’t believe that it is 6 months today since I launched Lisa’s Wedding World. Little did I think it would take off so well. For those of you who don’t know I had been doing #WeddingWednesday tweets on Twitter for about 6 months last year and had lots of people asking if I had a blog. It was something that was in the back of my mind but not really something I thought was realistic! But after some thought and a little research I decided I was going to give it a go.
Firstly I set about coming up with the name, with ideas being bounced off my family, friends and colleagues and eventually Lisa’s Wedding World was decided. I spent three months working on my site, teaching myself, researching, planning how I wanted it to look. I also worked with Cool & Co on the design of my logo and brand. It was so exciting seeing it come to life. On 29th October 2014, Lisa’s Wedding World went live and I haven’t looked back since.
I have been so lucky to have guest blogged on Hi! Magazine’s online weddings feature and also feature in Ask the Expert on Opsh.com talking about wedding trends for 2015. I have also spoken to PJ Coogan on 96FMs The Opinion Line twice discussing everything from the cost of weddings leading to divorce to Christmas engagements. Being invited to wedding fairs to meet local suppliers is fantastic too.
In such a short time I have been so overwhelmed with the positive feedback. Hearing stories of how people have used my ideas or recreated something at a cheaper version is wonderful. My Real Life Wedding feature has been a great hit with lots of couples wanting to be featured each month. Blogging is not as easy as you might think. It takes a lot of time but at the moment I eat, sleep and breathe it. I love it!
Thank you so much to all my followers and fingers crossed for bigger and brighter things to come on Lisa’s Wedding World in the next 6 months!
Love from my world,
