How I started

This blog started because I needed to write for therapeutic reasons. Although I could have done this privately, I decided to write this public blog because I also wanted to get rid of the shame I felt due to my childhood experiences affecting me now as an adult.

This blog was my outlet to release what ever I was feeling inside, while having counselling sessions and my blog has continued still after these counselling sessions have finished. This blog now helps others and maybe also gives awareness to those that read it. My blog writing changing depending on how my mood is, but I like to keep my blog as positive as possible.

Advice to new bloggers

  1. Be you. Being you reflects in your blog posts, helping your readers to get to know you and vice versa. This then reflects in your posts.
  2. Passionate. Write something that is passionate to you, or what you like, whether it be something on a personal level or a hobby you would like to talk about and share. By writing about something you are passionate about, you will continue to write about it, without it feeling a chore and you will enjoy it. Blogging is fun after all.

  1. A Kinder Way
  2. Nichi Health
  3. Courage Coaching
  4. Summer Starts To Shine
  5. Letters To Life

I do hope the nominated blogs will join with the fun.

Why I started blogging

I started blogging as a releasing outlet for what I was feeling, which has now turned out to help others, or be an inspiration. My blog has reflected as I change accordingly, which I hope to keep my blog positive, but like anyone with depression, it could change on my down days etc…

Blogging became therapeutic for me and continues to do so and I have come across many lovely followers here since bringing my blog to WordPress.

Advice to any new bloggers

Advice I would give to a new blogger is to just be you, as this will reflect in your post.
