How it all began...

It’s fair to say that I was at a very low point in my life when I started this blog in April 2018. I had just started taking anti-depressants and quit my job in retail. I had no idea what I wanted to do next.

By the end of that same month, my medication had kicked in, the blog had been launched, and I had begun making a positive space online. The idea was to “revolt” against the voice in my head that was consistently tearing me down. The one that said I couldn’t write. The one that said I couldn’t really do anything.

In sharing my story, I wanted to encourage others to get help if they were struggling with their mental health. I suppose I wanted to use myself as an example of the world of possibilities that are available when you get the right treatment.

But blogging changed my life more than I ever expected it to.

From Lonely & Lost To Blogging boss

I needed direction in my life and that’s exactly what blogging gave me. What started as a way to document my mental health journey quickly transformed into one of the biggest passions in my life.

Since then, I have connected with so many amazing bloggers, worked with several companies, grown a Twitter following of over 14,000 people and (hopefully) brightened lots of lives along the way!

There have been highs and lows, but it’s been life-changing, which is why I love helping others on their blogging journey. By sharing tips, offering advice and creating resources, I am able to give others the opportunity to fall in love with blogging the same way I have. That’s truly a gift for me.

I love what I do and it’s only possible because of the support of people like you. So, thank you.
