What inspired you to start blogging?
In all honesty loneliness and the need to have a outlet. I’d lost my job as a retail manager after suffering a miscarriage and was feeling very used up and irrelevant. It was the perfect way to organise my thoughts on how I felt and became a very therapeutic way to open myself up to entire communities of like-minded creatives.
What are your blogging plans for the next 12 months?
My biggest plan this year is to expand my reach and make my voice a little louder, despite the absence of events; which I miss like crazy! There will be a slight shift away from Instagram and a little more towards a full coverage of platforms namely Pinterest, TikTok and the #DontKeepMum Podcast.
Can you share the three most popular posts on your blog?
I tend to use my blog to raise awareness around postpartum issues and a need for increased care.
On Instagram I try to use light-hearted humour to be realistic and honest about parenting.
On TikTok the majority of my content is around my upcycle projects.
Can you share any tips for newer bloggers who would love to set up a parenting blog?
Just do it. Don’t get too focussed on being overly critical of yourself and let things build naturally, without stress or feeling you need to obsess over numbers. Reach out to other bloggers and collaborate. My biggest wins came from just being open to opportunities that and pinning absolutely everything I post to Pinterest!
If you could go back in time to when you first set up your blog would you do anything differently?

Which blogs do you love to read for inspiration?
My dirty little secret is my Poosh subscription, but I’ll never forget those original blogs that inspired me to first jump on the blog train:
