I don’t know if it’s because it has felt like the longest winter ever, or the fact that I’ve been blogging for four years now, or the arrival of the new social media app Vero, or that Lottie has been waking again early — or all four of these things — but lately I have been struggling to think of new content.

I have already read a lot of blog posts from a variety of bloggers this side of 2018 in which the word authentic has appeared. Which has got me wondering recently whether this is going to be THE big deal within blogging and influencing this year? And I believe that it will.

I write about being a blogger a lot. I guess it’s because I love it so much and it genuinely is a real passion of mine. In the last 4 years I have always felt the desire to want to sit down and write, and have personally got so much out of it all. But – as I often say – even though there are…

I have noticed in the last few years the rising popularity of female entrepreneurs, especially during maternity leave and beyond. The digital industry (blogging, marketing, PR, web design, social media etc) has made it even easier than ever to start your own enterprise and earn an income from it.
