The kit looks amazing and is very easy to assemble. However, as is the case with most mobile phone gadgets, this kit is not compatible with my Cubot X16. I tried the lenses with a Nokia Lumia smartphone and saw no difference in the picture scope/quality. I'll have friends and family try it too and tweet [if I remember to] about how they find it.
Despite now blogging for six years, this was the first time I had attended a bloggers event [conflicting schedules in the past meant I've not been able to] and I did so because, I think it's important to gain as much insight as possible into your field irrespective of how much you already 'know' and the 'level' at which you 'rank', so to speak....
Finch's Pub is a really nice venue, which I didn't expect [due to it being a place where folks go to indulge in alcohol] and the vintage feel gave it a very chilled, laid back vibe. Everyone I met was pleasant, friendly, chatty and the businesses exhibiting were unique and new to me which was both exciting and fun! - Look out for La Miela on my radio show in 2017, God willing.
Would be awesome to see bloggers and vloggers supporting one another more, as well as being more about the force behind the 'talents' we showcase. Sampling freebies is amazing and helpful for companies but, taking the time to get to know the creator behind the product, or the company pushing a campaign, or brand etc is far more rewarding and no doubt better for boosting product awareness and the profile of content creators reviewing the products/services. One of the awesome companies I connected with was Journo Link - make sure you check them out!
The best discovery, for me, was BLOGOSPHERE MAGAZINE, frigging luv it!! Whether you've been blogging for centuries, a day, or are thinking about starting a blog, this mag is to be your blogging 'bible'.... Go subscribe!
Leaving the bloggers event with some goodies was great, the complimentary food [not nibbles, I might add, edible, filling food] was a grand touch and I think the organisers did a really good job of creating a 'hub' for bloggers and brands to connect, network and initiate partnerships. My friend and I had a lovely time.. #bloggersxmas
Note to fellow bloggers and vloggers:
Blogging/vlogging needs to be [and remain] authentic, consistent and supportive otherwise what's the point? Never allow money to be the motivation. Be driven positively by your passion and enthusiasm to discover new businesses etc.
If you're a blogger, or vlogger, let's connect!!
