An Interview with Kat of Rock N Roll Bride

Blogging, Brides & Tattoos – Rock N Roll Bride is dead cool.

Whether you’re looking for wedding inspiration, expert advice on blogging, or running your own business, Kat Williams‘ blog is the definitive go to.

Initially starting out as an outlet to chronicle her own adventures in matrimony, Rock N Roll Bride has since become the sorely needed breath of fresh of air in the wedding industry for many women about to wed – be they ‘Punk Rock Girls’ or ‘Glamour Girls’ (and lets be honest, many of us would identify as both).

Kat curates with care and detail on Rock N Roll Bride some of the most beautiful and unique weddings around, breaking free of traditional modes to celebrate the individual.

Witty, glamorous and well inked – Kat Williams is also one of the brains behind the Blogcademy, a blogging workshop that has been taking the world by storm, selling out classes across the globe. Continue Reading

The Blogcademy – A Whirlwind Weekend of Awesome

NYC Blogcademy

I’ve just returned home from a whirlwind weekend in NYC where I attended the first ever Blogcademy – a Blogging workshop guaranteed to sharpen your skills and up your game.

NYC Blogcademy in SessionThe Blogcademy, is the brainchild of three talented women: Shauna Haider, Gala Darling and Kat Williams. With additional segments over the weekend taught by Paige of BlogAds and Lisa Devlin, Photographer extraordinaire, it was a quite jam packed two days to say the least.

Rocking Bloggerface in NYCWith only 30 spots available on the course, I’m really glad that Andrea pushed me to go, knowing how much I wanted to. Only two weekends prior my boyfriend and I had to cancel our annual Thanksgiving trip to NYC because of illness. I was pretty gutted about that, and also feeling really guilty I’d be swanning off to The Blogcademy only a few weeks later, and he’d be stuck on kitty watching duty. The weekend though made up for the loss of our getaway, and this was clear when I came home beaming (and it didn’t hurt that I brought him back some duty free Gin either!)

Getting Schooled at the BlogcademyThe workshops were insightful and practical, taught with refreshing openness and candour from the Headmistresses, who fielded a variety of questions on Blog related subjects in addition to the set curriculum.

Autumn Leaves in NYCIt was particularly energizing to take part in a course run by strong, successful young women (and with such rocking styles and personalities to boot!) Regardless of the celebrity they each have in their respective fields, the Headmistresses were very approachable, down to earth and genuine in wanting to disseminate and share their Blogging knowledge which was plentiful!

So what next?

There was a lot to takeaway from this weekend (besides the killer swag bags from the sponsors), and I’m still in the midst of processing all the information from the class and beginning to apply this new knowledge.

Most importantly, this past weekend has really uplifted and reinvigorated me. I’m feeling more grounded, with a fantastic base and structure to begin to develop further. The enthusiasm and excitement shared by all the women in the class, as well as that of Shauna, Gala and Kat was very infectious and a sorely needed breathe of fresh air.

Early morning birds taking flight in BrooklynI hope to continue to carry that sense and feeling with me in this Blogging endeavour, and in all my other creative projects I’m currently working on, and in future.

SO – Focus. Discipline. and Determination!

Thank you Blogcademy for a most excellent weekend!
