I’ve been blogging for bloody ages. Much longer in fact than this blog has existed. I had a couple of blogs before this one that totally sucked because they were too specific, so when I landed on the idea behind more about cat, I was on to a winner if you ask me. Anyway, as someone who would happily describe themselves as a blogger to other human beings that don’t blog, I was thinking recently about what blogging has actually taught me about myself. Let’s face it, any hobby that you lovelovelove is going to be a big part of… View Post

At this time of year, with the beginning of the shorter, greyer and colder days, it’s easy for anyone to feel low. The days where you don’t feel like you are your best self can become more and more frequent as we delve deeper into autumn and winter. The days where you feel productive and can climb into bed knowing you did the best and most you can become fewer. But bear with me here. It’s not all doom and gloom! In fact, it’s quite the opposite. At this time of year, there are a lot of simple things that… View Post

Quite often I blog about self-improvement, celebrating your successes and practicing self-care. I’ve always wanted this blog to be a haven for people to come to and get real, practical advice on feeling better and appreciating yourself.

But in that way where I can confidently say “what you see, is what you get”. If you don’t like what you see, then that’s fine but… View Post

I’m not entirely sure how we’re up to instalment number FOURTEEN of this series, but hey… here we are! Let’s dive in to the latest movies I’ve seen shall we? Happy Death Day So I knew this wasn’t exactly going to be my movie of the year, but Liam really wanted to see it and I was optimistic it might be comparable to It Follows or Get Out as a good modern horror flick. It wasn’t. I found the vast majority of the film to be boring, and the “twists” verged on stupid. It’s not a terrible movie – it’s… View Post

I am utterly obsessed with Google Analytics and have been for years, but it’s only more recently that I started comparing my blog stats month on month rather than just having a casual peek every damn day to see how I was doing. I decided to change tact after finding out that my other half Liam records the stats for his podcast every month. I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me before that this would be a good way to learn what works for my blog and social media channels on a more long term basis. My stats… View Post
