May Scribblings: Adventures in Instagram and top networking

This month’s wins, recommendations and happenings…

In the press…

Talland Bay Hotel featured in the walk of the week in West magazine with the Western Morning News and Colwith Farm Distillery appeared both in the Western Morning News and on CornwallLive following a visit by Martin Hesp.

Bloggers checking in and reviewing Talland Bay Hotel included Sophie from The Wordrobe and Anna from The Cornish Life. Read our thoughts on working with bloggers and influencers.

Finally we were delighted to have helped realise a life-long dream for editor of Wanderlust magazine, Lyn Hughes, with a trip to the remote South Atlantic island of St Helena. Her article appears in the latest issue.

Doing…

Cornish summertime arrived in all its glory this month. We managed to sneak in a night camping down near Portscatho on the Roseland peninsula, including cooking some amazing prawns picked up from Curgurrell Farm Shop.

Progress continues at Colwith Farm Distillery, so we popped in to have a look.

May has also seen a flurry of networking events including a Cornish Creatives catch-up at Broken China in Truro and a lunch with the Samphire Club at Pentillie Castle. It’s been great to meet and speak to so many Cornish business folk, bloggers and entrepreneurs.

Learning…

We attended the excellent Instagram photography workshop organised by Barefoot Media and hosted by Matt Inwood at Appleton’s restaurant. Specifically geared at people working in the food, drink and hospitality industry, the session offered a brilliant overview of using Instagram for self-promotion along with practical tips on taking and editing photos on your phone. Our tip? Get yourself booked onto the next one, pronto. And book in for Sunday brunch at Appleton’s too.

Winning…

Anyone who freelances or runs a small business will appreciate that sometimes it can be lonely working in isolation. This month has seen a glut of brilliant face-to-face networking opportunities, coffees and catch-ups with other people in the industry. It’s been fabulous to put faces to names that have become familiar on social media. Thank you to everyone who inspires us on Instagram and beyond.
