How long have you been blogging?
It feels like forever, can’t imagine my life without it! But I think around 5-6 years.
Why did you decide to start your blog?
I blog about positive lifestyle topics like personal development, health and goal setting. I’m all about encouraging others to prioritise themselves, their own health and happiness.
What do you hope to achieve for your blog in 2017?
2017 is all about strengthening my community and making sure I’m connecting with more people.
I’m also going to be working 1-on-1 with women online, helping them to achieve their goals and make positive change in their lives.
What is your favourite social media channel & why?
I have to say Youtube! I feel like it’s the easiest way to truly connect with your audience. You can put your personality, image and message across in a much more tangible way, so people really feel like they know you.
Who is your blogging inspiration?
There are so many! I’m always really inspired by Zanna van Dijk, as she has a refreshingly balanced and laid back approach to health and fitness. In a community that can be quite pressurised and image obsessed at times, she is all about appreciating your body, enjoying life and ignoring the diet fads.
I also LOVE Grace Victory. Her efforts to raise awareness of important issues such as mental health and body image are so admirable. I wish her videos had been around when I was a teenager going through those types of struggles!
What is the one piece of advice you’d give other bloggers & aspiring bloggers?
“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard” 🙂
AKA even if you feel like you’re not the most knowledgeable in your niche, or you don’t have the best photography skills. Hard work, willingness to learn and consistency will get you there.
Fun/Random fact about you:
I am the ultimate crazy cat lady.
