The Week I Broke One Of My Resolutions

I usually start the year with resolutions. In the past I was very good at keeping them, then I gradually got worse at it, and for the past couple of years I’ve been kind of hit-and-miss about it. This year I began with only two actual resolutions, both of which I’ve kept, but I also made some promises to myself, which I haven’t.

Introducing Freelance Fridays!

Some of my favourite features on other people’s blogs are interviews with various people. Sarah does her ‘True Stories’ series, where people share interesting things about themselves. Caitlin does her ‘Vegan Traveller’ series, which documents people who travel whilst following a vegan diet.

Why Being A Bit Of A Quirky Weirdo Can Actually Be Good For Business

I have always been paranoid about interviews.

Doesn’t everyone get paranoid about interviews?

I think so.

The thing is, they’re so artificial.
