Are You Thinking Of Starting A Blog?

Some people start a blog as a hobby. Some down to fear of missing out. Others do it to get noticed as an influencer in their category. Lots intend on becoming bigger than their blog, noticed as an aspirational figure, a consultant or minor 'celebrity'. Whatever the reason at the heart is context and curation.

How Blogging Full Time Has Changed Me As A Person

Occupation? “Blogger”…. Daniel and I recently went to give notice on our wedding and met with a wedding registrar to go through all the legalities for the big day. They asked are we related? “Hope not”. Am I already married? “Not that I’m aware of?”… It’s when it came to my occupation that I hesitated. I’ve been blogging for around 5 months full time and this is only the second time I’ve been asked what I…

An Honest Insight Into Blogging & Bullying

This Post Might Just Save Your Life

You’ll have seen me write about my family experience with Cancer before. It’s been in my family past and present. My late grandmother died four years ago.

Cancer affects family, friends and the person who has it. I’d give my right arm to have her back with us or…

The 5 Minute Mind Workout

& Why Every Busy Person Needs This Being ‘in the moment’, being present and being aware. Having purpose, having a realisation, gaining clarity. Considering our deliberate actions, considering our body and thinking about our emotions. We could be here all day talking about this couldn’t we. But there’s a reason I’m mentioning it on the blog. Additionally, I’m conscious that once we’re actually aware of what mindfulness is, it makes us all the more patient and tolerant when…
