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!)
I’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.
MORE ABOUT ME
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!
