Why I set up LDN Laptop Club

Why I set up LDN Laptop Club

As I'm sure you've noticed, I've been a pretty bad blogger recently. Ever since I moved to work in London two years ago, I've found it harder and harder to find the time to blog. Now I really don't want to be one of those people who says 'I'm so busy' 24/7 (as we all know that's boring to listen to), but it can be hard to motivate yourself to use any spare time you do have to actually put your thoughts down. After asking around, I realised that I am not the only one who has this issue, so I tried to work out how we can alleviate the problem. Then a few months ago I found a solution! I don't know about you, but I personally think it is way more fun to do things with other people around, so I decided to set up a monthly group to meet up and write blog posts at the same time. 

Every month 2 or 3 people come along, buy a cup of tea or coffee (and maybe a slice of cake), and get their laptops out to blog or work on a creative project. We chat about our lives, work and blogs, and come up with ideas for what each of us could write about. Sometimes your passion is there, but writers block has got in the way and you just don't know how to begin starting your post - so it's amazing to have friendly faces around who can help you to see some direction. 

LDN Laptop Club began earlier in the year when I was feeling especially uninspired and I'm so pleased that it's still running now. I've met some incredible people, (who I now hang out with outside of the club) and actually started to blog! Yes, it may only be once or twice a month, but it is a hell of a lot more than I would be if I was left to do it on my own. Every single time I leave laptop club I feel fulfilled, like the pressure of blogging has diminished and I feel like I can tackle it head on. I look forward to attending and seeing people who have felt exactly the same as me, and I like the idea that I can go along and no one judge me that I've not even looked at my blog since the last time we met.

The next club is tomorrow (23rd August) and then the following ones are 26th Sept, 25th Oct, 29th Nov and 20th Dec (which may be a Christmas do). So if you are in London and you have ever struggled with the same feeling as me and want to meet some new faces, then let me know! If you're not from London, then why not set up your own laptop club in your area? All you need is Twitter to find people and a lovely location that stays open late!
