Mayflower Blogs is 1 today! A little round-up and celebratory giveaway!


1 whole year, of blogs, reviews, comments, shares, editing, learning, vlogging and everything in between!


I genuinely never assumed I’d get to this point-I worried at the beginning that I’d not be very good at this writing lark, and maybe my unorganised mind would mean I wouldn’t cope.

A year on and I look back at all I’ve achieved-not seeing stress and unorganised chaos (not most of the time anyway), but with pride and happiness at the goals I’ve set and achieved, and the opportunities I’ve been given.

In the last year I’ve written 235 blog posts (this is number 236), worked with 59 companies, businesses and PR’s, and attended a good few events and days out.


I’ve written about everything and anything-bullying, alcoholism, miscarriage, mental health, my kids, my health, lifestyle, parenting, home life, reviews, and complete randomness.
I’ve been asked more times than I can remember, what my niche is-and still now, a year on, I don’t have an answer, and will hopefully never have one-I genuinely think your work and style speak for themselves.  If I can write about everything and anything-I will!

I’ve been featured in a national magazine, discussing my miscarriages and my PTSD, my children have had magical experiences, and we were gifted our first family holiday.

Because of all of this, and regardless of all of this-nothing changes the reason I began writing, and the reason I’ll continue to write.

I want to help others feel less alone in their lives, when faced with similar issues to mine.  I want to make people laugh with my writing, to cheer people up.  I want to feature other incredible bloggers-those I speak to, follow and look up to every single day.

I have no idea what the next year holds-but as I clicked the purchase button on the domain renewal screen for my website, I knew that I loved what I do so much, that right now I never want to stop.

As I mentioned above, I’ve worked with some pretty incredible companies and businesses-so incredible, that when I mentioned my website was turning one, they offered to help me out with a giveaway bundle for my readers.

Finally, it’s just left for me to thank everyone-anyone I’ve worked with/for, those who have supported me from the beginning and continue to do so now, as Mayflower Blogs enters it’s second year.
A special thanks has to go to my husband, for supporting me the most, moving work shifts, and doing school pickups when I was swanning around London at an event, comforting me when I had a banging headache after working for 5 hours solidly on the laptop, and congratulating me every time I hit another milestone on social media, or my views increase on blog posts.

Here’s to another year of, well, this!

Happy Birthday Mayflower Blogs!!!!!!
