Ooh, my first ever blog post. Is that what they’re called? How exciting. I was reading lots of blogs on how to start mine off (I like to do my research) and discovered a good one that suggested I answer the following questions (it might not have meant to follow them so explicitly):
Who are you?
Hi, I’m Kathryn, I’m 33, I live in London and work as a Business Development Executive. Also, I really love hen dos – both organising and just attending. I had my hen do exactly 3 years ago today! So it’s the perfect day to launch my blog.
Why you are blogging?
I am blogging because when I was planning my hen do I found it difficult to find unusual/unique activities to do. Also, when I have been planning other people’s (I have fully organised seven, and partially organised four) I found it difficult to come up with dares, ideas, games, themes etc. I’m hoping to provide ideas for hen dos that, at present, aren’t readily available in one place, and to make things a bit easier for people who haven’t organised one before.
What will you be blogging about?
I’m basically going to have several different kinds of posts:
- Activities – I have searched on the internet for activities that would be great for a hen do, but you wouldn’t normally think of straight away.
- Hen dos that have happened – I’ll write about hen dos I have organised/been on, with details of the day, how it was personalised to the bride, costs, and good/bad points. Hopefully this will be useful for other organisers.
- Games/Dares – I know from speaking to loads of people and looking on forums that people struggle with thinking of games to play and dares for people to do. I have LOADS of ideas and will be sharing these. None of my suggestions will involve removal of anyone’s underwear.
- Hints/Tips – Anything I have learned from organising hen dos, or that other people tell me about that I think is useful.
- General – If I think of anything to blog about that doesn’t come under the above headings!
In theory, my blog should provide all the components you need to organise a brilliant hen do. Let’s see if that works in practice!
