Hey there awesome readers. I've written a post in answer to some of your blogging questions. Each day I receive several emails/twitter and fb messages asking me how to make a blog a business. Here I share a brief post that will hopefully offer some insight.

The Importance of Being More Tolerant and Kind

I want this post to be as positive as possible, really I do but I write this with a frustratingly sore, burnt leg after I spilt a cup of boiling hot tea down myself- and over my poor laptop (which has only just recovered from being swamped by water earlier this month enduring a trip to Google Android hospital) so the pain in my leg might just reveal itself in my words.

Right Where I Want to Be

It's so easy in life to be constantly chasing dreams, and believe me, I'm a big believer in dreaming big, working hard, and simply going for 'it' whatever 'it' might be, but recently I've had a little shift in thinking...

Compliments to Strangers-A Little Kindness Goes A Long Way

I know I'm incredibly lucky in so many ways: I have a strong, supportive, wise and loving husband; the smartest, fun and most encouraging folks you could ever wish for, and a big group of fiercely bright and brilliant female friends (and one male bestie too of course-Will, you rock).

5 Blogging Rules to Break

Rules, rules, rules. I get it, many, many rules when it comes to creativity, be it screenwriting to blogging and beyond, are incredibly useful for insight, guidance and inspiration but rules, my friends were made to be broken.

Be Your Own Best Publicist

I've worked with a Publicist for a while to help me with the load as my blogging business is rapidly expanding but I've always believed and practised promoting my own work whether that was filmmaking, my journalistic work to right now, as a full time professional blogger.

Why I’m Not a Superwoman

People keep referring to me (kindly) as Superwoman (if only I looked that good in lycra-wait-a-minute who my kidding, I'd NEVER wear lycra) but truth be told, I'm asked quite a bit 'How do you do it?' so I thought I'd blog exactly how!

My Top 10 Tips To Help Bloggers Go Pro

Oh the irony that this in itself is a commissioned post (!) but it is of value to you and my tips will hopefully help you too get work. You see, I'm a full time professional blogger and have been for over 2 1/2 years, working with clients and brands both big and small that fit my blog and importantly my audience: you.

My Career as a Professional Blogger

I'm often asked what my career is and although I'm a trained, award winning filmmaker and adore directing, the last few years have seen me become a full time blogger, a career that happened organically and is one I LOVE.

The Power of Putting it Down on Paper

At the end of last year, I anxiously scribbled a creative plan down on paper for myself and blogged about the process HERE. A liberating act and one that was utterly necessary in helping me to focus on what mattered when it came to my creative work goals and dreams.

Ladies-Male Friends, You Got Any?

Today, I met up with my wonderful friend Will (not Matt Damon, although striking resemblance that's for sure) for a late lunch at Carluccio's in Leeds as he was visiting from London for a meeting...
