All About You – #Blogtober17 – Day 1

Hello-and welcome to the first day of #Blogtober17!  If you didn’t catch my Facebook post yesterday, then you may not have the first idea about what’s happening right now.

Blogtober is basically a-blog-a-day!  I’ll be blogging about a variety of random subjects, every day throughout this month-but don’t worry-there will still be the usual reviews and ramblings of my mind!

Today’s theme, as the title suggests, is, All About You. (Which is All About ME!)


#Blogtober17I’m Mrs Mayflower-of Mayflower Blogs fame (haha-as if I’m even slightly famous!)

In real, non internet, life, I’m Jemma (with a ‘J’).

I’m 31, I have two children-Kye and Olivia-May, and a Husband of 8 years-Keiron.

We live in the tiniest corner of Kent, and live a pretty normal(ish) life.



I started blogging a few years ago on and off, but seriously over a year ago-mainly using writing as a diary-not really bothering about who read my ramblings, or whether they were any good.

After a couple of blogs were noticed by people, I realised I really enjoyed writing, and I was good at it-so decided to start blogging properly.


I began blogging about two main subjects-mental health, and baby loss.  Having experience with both is massively unfortunate-but at the same time, the loneliness I was feeling while battling these issues, is something I wanted to help others avoid.

Since beginning blogging, I’ve worked with so many companies and businesses, and to date haven’t had one piece of negative feedback from any.  I now review products, days out, events etc for businesses-while also making sure I find time to write about my original passions, and new ones!

The writing thing has become a bit of my life now-and juggling the increasing workload, that’s rising monthly along with my stats, as well as the kids, the house, the husband and every day life, sometimes takes it toll.  I just kick myself into gear and remind myself how lucky I am to get to do something I not only enjoy, but that I’m good at!

Who knows where I’ll be this time next year-but for now, I’m happy-and that’s all that matters!


Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for Day 2 of #Blogtober17!

    I started blogging as a diary for my ramblings, and am overwhelmed by just how much my blog has changed. I can fully sympathise with babyloss as I have experienced it,and have a little section about my journey to become a Mum, which I share every year throughout babyloss awareness x

    Blogging does like to take over, doesn’t it?! I’ve lost my mojo a bit lately, so I’m hoping blogtober might kick start the love again 🙂

    I honestly don’t know how I find the time to blog… or how I’m going to find the time to do Blogtober! But it’ll be fun! Looking forward to reading more of your posts!

    I also write mainly about mental health, it’s such a difficult but much needed topic to write about isn’t it? I definitely find it quite releasing though! Interested to read more of your posts over the next month! #Blogtober17

    I’ve been blogging since 2009 – sometimes I write a lot and other times I don’t, I definitely think it can take over if you let it! #Blogtober

    Welcome to #Blogtober17, so lovely to have you on board! I am looking forward to finding out more about you. I love that you are blogging, not only to record your life but to help others with subjects that are not talked about very much x
