Brilliant Blog Posts

Bonjour all you brilliant bloggers and welcome to this week’s Brilliant Blog Posts.

This week I’m linking up to a pretty damn exciting post about my day filming at the Sky News for their Morning Stories segment.

Ecstatic doesn’t even come close!

I was filming an edited version of my popular article on Imposter Syndrome, which alludes to feeling like a fake when you have no reason to and although not exclusive to the female gender, it is more common in women than men.

You can read the article (with links to watch the video) HERE .

sky news morning storiesIt was such an amazing experience! I had so much fun filming in the studios and working with Cara the producer and the super crew – what an amazing bunch of people!

I made a behind-the-scenes vlog of my day too!

After years spent behind the camera as an award winning film director, it sometimes feel weird being in front of it, but I absolutely love it. It feels like ‘home’. Along with my regular vlogging and my presenting stint on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, I can’t wait to do more!

Watch out Holly Willoughby!! 😉

    Thanks again for hosting. Loving the behind the scenes vlog. It’s the first time I’ve heard your voice and for some reason I was expecting a Greek accent, lol!! Just had that in my head, funny how your brain works sometimes.

    Looks like you had a fab time with Sky, can’t wait to see the next one.

    I thought that your piece for Sky News was amazing! My mood and depression has been back down recently but this really did pick me up and make me believe in myself a little bit more so thank you for sharing xx

    Hi Vicki, I only heard the term Impostor Syndrome last Autumn, from my son who’d just started at Cambridge UNI. He found it truly crippling; it compromised his existence, and he’d lost so much weight by the time he returned home to Italy for Christmas. The break did him good and he began this term with a more serene perspective. I really hadn’t imagined this condition could also afflict affirmed Hollywood “greats”! Thank you for dedicating your energies to exposing this subject and therefore helping all who suffer due to it.

      Oh Sally that has made me so sad, I am relieved the break helped and he returned with greater confidence. Really touched by your comment x

    Loved your piece for Sky. Impostor Syndrome is such a fascinating subject and I can see why it affects women more than men. Very inspiring and glad you got to be on #MorningStories too! Off to watch your behind the scenes video now.

    Thanks for hosting! Look forward to watching your vlog. My post has a little link to imposter syndrome so it’s an apt choice for your linky (and 90% less miserable than my usual stuff!).

        Thank you! I enjoyed the ‘imposter’ blog particularly all the nods to the research and the odd double standards that get applied.

        Whilst imposter syndrome can be crippling and career limiting there may be some good that can come of it it means that you don’t get convinced of your expertise and keep the perspective that there is always something new or a new angle.

        It’s hard to keep it from being crushing though. Took a lot of work in an action learning set with others feeling the same to recognise we needed to give ourselves a break and that we wouldn’t be there if people didn’t think we were capable of learning the job. We were working on some bizarre belief that we were expected to grasp everything about a new job on the first day and that’s just madness!

        Thanks for your thought provoking post.

        We are so hard on ourselves and there is still a long way to go for equality, until we achieve it I think it will be a struggle for so many of us but it’s so important to remember how awesome we are.
