Getting More Real

I wrote a post last week on which direction do I take next and how 'I want to get more real', not only in my personal life but also online too. I've had a good think on where I want to take my blog and am ready to get my -typing- on.

I have had a read through some of my latest posts and they just seem to be lacking my personality or any personality at all for that matter. No wonder I've been finding it difficult to stay motivated.  I've been down a rocky road to get me to where I am today - a twenty-five year old, living as an independent adult, having made mistakes (maybe the odd good decision) with a penchant for all kinds of tea and a new found lover of gin.

I once explored a dating series on my blog called Love, Lust & Laughter, unfortunately I deleted the posts because an ex's Dad was stalking my blog, LinkedIn and social media... (weirdo). I know I'm putting myself out there by being online but that was an invasion of my privacy as I hadn't even met him and already he was able to 'get to know me' and pass judgement on me before being introduced to me.

Oh, the perils of the internet, hey?

I had written about previous dating experiences which I didn't expect him to find, let alone want to read! Since then I've kept my blog PC and clear of anything I might be afraid of my future in-laws, family, next door neighbours or colleagues finding out about me. Until now. 

That's right. I've stopped giving a f*ck. I want my writing and my content to reflect ME, not a quietened down version of me. I have a lot of opinions on mental health and relationships and I'm gona voice them, right here on my corner of the internet.

I really enjoyed writing about personal things that I had learnt from and thought I was passing on invaluable advice to my fellow millennial's, so here I am, about to open up and let you get to know me, whether you are my next door neighbour or not.

I would love to get to know you too, so please leave me a comment on this post with something interesting about you. It could be anything, the weirder the better ;)


  1. I love this post!, why should you filter yourself on your own blog etc!.
