If you’re reading this, then firstly congratulations, hehe (!) and secondly, thank you from the bottom of my heart for returning back to my blog despite me harping on online, for thirteen years now!
I truly appreciate you whether you’ve been here from day dot or have just discovered me today!
I was a TV director, screenwriter, filmmaker and lecturer before starting up this blog after the traumatic birth of my first baby which led to me building an accidental, brand new, digital career.
Over these past thirteen years, I’ve had three children, moved countless of times and to different cities (we’ve just bought a house in Harrogate), written a book, Mumboss on how to survive and thrive as a mum and digital creator (titled, The Working Mom in the US and Canada) and I’ve candidly shared my ups and downs with you, with a little advice along the way (mostly picked up by those, far wiser than me).
I regularly appear on TV and the radio, most recently guest-editing a BBC 5 Live show on what it means to be in your 40s as well as being the Parenting Expert for Bored Panda who reach a whopping 121 million views a month.
I’ve worked with everyone from global brands to small parent-owned businesses and I’m proud of features I’ve created here, most so my Wonderful Women series which shines a spotlight on brilliant women impacting the world with their work.
I’m developing some new book ideas whilst continuing to collaborate with brands I’ve always loved. Most importantly, I am able to work part time, flexibly and remotely whilst raising my children which was exactly why I embraced a blogging and digital career in the first place.
I started this blog (you can read my first blog post here) not knowing it would quickly lead to a career change, but when that opportunity presented itself, I felt like the luckiest mama in the world and I still feel that way today. Long may it continue.
Happy blogiversary to me!
