As written previously, I have decided to put more time and effort into my blog and that’s covering everything from a revamp of the landing page –which I will go into a bit later in the post– as well as making an exciting schedule of blog posts lined up for you. I want to be more consistent and cover more topics within my writing and show a bit more into the rollercoaster that is my life.
Two years ago this month, I wrote my first proper piece; Addison’s Disease and me. That one post was probably one of my most viewed pieces of work until a few months ago and I have come a long way since then. I have changed in personality; I became a mother and I managed to beat the disease that I had -more information regarding that will be coming in a future post… I promise, I won’t make you wait too long.- I also moved back to Essex and stopped studying a degree. Because of two amazing years writing sporadically and not really understanding my blog, I have taken the time to change it. To make it more current and worth visiting. You readers take time out of your busy days to read what I’ve written, so I want to show that it is worth it.
Starting off the updates with a better use of colours and pictures throughout my blog. Each month, I will be writing a post like this, to give you a rough insight into what is coming up and what posts are cannot miss! You’ll notice certain themes building such as my choice of using birthstones to represent my monthly updates. I thought there was no better way to represent each month with its own official stone as found on H Samuels Website and use them as a starting point. Originally, birthstones weren’t so much to do with birth, more so to do with the different months. Apparently wearing said gemstones during that month is supposed to enhance the characteristics. So, for August, we have Peridot which doesn’t have a lot of folklore attached to it but it’s still pretty and ‘is said to attract love and quieten feelings of anger, as well as soothing nerves and warding off negative emotions.’ If you have any of these gems laying around the house, this month would be the perfect time to add them to your wardrobe.
This is my first month where I will be dedicated to bringing out content every other day at 8PM (I think it’s GMT, but I fail at geography and time zones… it’s a weakness.) We have some posts that will be more frequent like ‘Mumma Life’ and ‘Mental Health’ and some that will only appear once a month like ‘An Open Letter’ and ‘This or That’. All because I want to give you guys more of a reason to want to read what I write. Towards the end of July, I was thankful to have one of my favourite singers, an International award-winning singer/songwriter agree to be my first ‘Interview with an Inspiration’. I will let out more details about that in the days to come with the piece hopefully making its way out for the 13th of this month! Are you excited? I know I am. Make sure you are following me on social media because it’s a piece I am really looking forward to writing and I get to interview someone who’s music has been in my playlist for years.
I want my readers to get to know me a little better because I am a lot more than my mental health and being a mum. I’m more than just a sister and an aunt. And considering many of you read every post I write, I figured it would be a way for you to understand who I am! I wrote a few months ago that I wanted to bring back the colour and I intend to do so. I want my blog to be a place where you can escape for a few minutes whilst you read what I write. I want you readers to be involved with posts inspired by you guys every month! Because I wouldn’t have an audience to write for if it wasn’t for you. So, I want you to have your say!
Within the next month I am looking at upgrading my package with WordPress which means putting in more hours and more dedication. I will have my own domain and much more ability to have my blog the way I want! So, you never know, you might look at my blog for two posts in three days and the website have changed dramatically. But it keeps things exciting.
Thank you for reading about what’s coming to you in August! I couldn’t do this without you guys and I truly appreciate it. If you head over to various platforms such as Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, I hope that wherever you are in the world, you’re happy and healthy and you keep smiling. Ferrari.
