I've been running this blog for just over two years now.
It started on a bit of a whim; I have always been creative whether it be through art, drama or words but in recent years it is words that have been my particular preference.
The power of the word is almighty whether it's the lyrics to a song that remind you of a special time or place or the reading at a the funeral of a loved one.
The written word is amazing; it can make you laugh, cry, gasp, wince..... the list is endless.
Over the last two years I have spent post after post trying to establish who I am as a blogger. Who I am as a writer and how I feel most comfortable adressing my readers.
Blogging is both a pleasure and hard work. To compete with all the other fabulous bloggers out there to get noticed (if that is what you want) you need to keep your posts fresh, interesting and of an engaging topic, then you need to proofread, take eye catching photos and promote, promote, PROMOTE.
I have never kept it secret that it would be my dream to be a full time writer. Who wouldn't want to do what they love most as a job?
If you read and enjoy my lifestyle blog then it would mean so much to me for you to nominate me for the 'Best Lifestyle Blog' award in this years Cosmopolitan Blog Awards (in association with NEXT). I saw all the hype surrounding these amazing awards last year but wouldn't dare consider entering my little blog and did feel the same this year when suddenly I thought "What the hell?! You can only but try!"
If you do or have nominated me then thank you from the bottom of my heart! It really means the world to me.
