5 Year Blog birthday!

500,000 Views!!!

My friend messaged me yesterday and asked if I wanted to go along with her as part of a large group […]

My 1 year blog-birthday!

A year ago this week I started my blog. I made my first post on 18th August 2013 and started out with 0 views, now here I am a year later with 125 posts and 190,000 views. It still amazes me that so many people are interested in what I write and my experiences. I’ve met some […]
