Hi, I’m Val Robus and I’m a photographer and blogger based in Sligo. I’m also interested in Social Media. You’ll usually find me behind a camera or a computer somewhere.
I’m passionate about Sligo and Ireland. I’m also very interested in adventures, food, exploring and events for both tourists and locals to enjoy. If you have something of interest that you’d like me to cover on the blog, or if you’d like to collaborate just drop me an email: email@example.com
I’ve had mental health issues this year including anxiety and depression. They appeared out of the blue and knocked me for six. I’ve written a lot about it in the blog. If you are suffering don’t feel alone, I’m at the end of an email: firstname.lastname@example.org I can’t promise to make you feel better but I know what a lonely place it can be.
I won the #Tweetiepic award at the Inaugural RaboTweetie awards and was in the final of the Blog Awards Ireland in 2012 and the Irish Blog Awards in 2010. I was listed in the DailyEdge 25 Irish Instagram Accounts that should be followed in 2015. I was runner-up in the Biodiversity Smartphone Snapper photography competition in 2015 and 2016. I’ve had my photography featured on National TV and in National Newspapers. I’ve had articles published in Woman’s Way, Go Wild Magazine and Ireland Before You Die
