Questions:

Do you like to read? If so, what is your favorite book genre?

I love to read. I used to think I was a fiction person, but I’m starting to realise more and more that I have the endurance for non-fiction. I really like to learn new skills and gain new knowledge and understanding from books. I’ve been reading about carnivorous plants, learning what they like to grow in and how to raise them. I’ve also been learning about fermenting my own foods, and developing my knowledge of the exciting world of digestive health. There is so much fascinating information out there, I’m soaking it up as fast as I can!

How much time do you put into your blog?

At the moment, I’m working full time at a job to make money to live and eat. I’d rather do this ALL THE TIME, but I really only get to do this a couple of times a week if I’m lucky and dependent on my energy levels. I’m hoping to do more and start to really streamline the takeoff of the blog! I want this to go places!

What is your favorite hobby (besides blogging or reading)?

I adore plants. I have a dangerously large collection of pot plants already and like I said already, I’m branching out into carnivorous species! I love watching them grow and learning about what they need to thrive. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction!

How long have you been blogging?

I’ve blogged intermittently for for a couple of years, but I’ve only recently been putting in more regular time on it. I know that you have to post regular exciting content to make progress.

If you could go back in time to one year ago, what advice would you give yourself?

Accept where you are now. A year ago was a rocky place for me. I was suffering from quite severe depression and had just started a new job. I am so proud of myself for pushing on regardless. So many people would have given up at that point, but I didn’t. Accepting my feelings, acknowledging that I need to allow myself to feel sad, and realising that it won’t always be like that, is exactly what I would tell myself.
