I am so excited to introduce you guys to Rhiannon! She is newly self-hosted and has an incredible blog! I wanted you guys to get to know her a bit, so I`ve asked her some questions!
SO excited you`re here!!! Can you tell us a little bit about you?
Heyy!! Me too, Thank you for having me!! Well I’m Rhiannon, I’m 28 from South Wales in the UK. I live with my husband, 2 children and fur baby. I’m abit of a geek that loves to experiment with makeup and play GTA until I end up throwing the controller (psycho alert haha!). I have a passion for art and I’m that person who takes 20 photos of an old building because anything that has old school architecture is epic!!
How old is your blog/business and how did it come to be?
Its actually relatively new!! I’ve only had it a couple of months. I had been thinking about blogging for a very long time. Throughout my life I’ve had a lot of life changing events which when people hear about it I’ve always been told I should write a book. So after a long time of doubting myself I finally got the courage to start my blog.
How do you find it is managing life AND entrepreneurship/writing? Any tips?
For myself I find it not so bad to fit time in. My day to day life isn’t always busy. I always make sure though that I set myself a time to sit in quiet to write. I get what jobs around the house done that need doing and I try to write what I can while the kids are at school which would be my biggest tip!! When they’re home I don’t get 2 minutes peace so writing is impossible, which is why when they go to school I always make sure I set an hour or so aside.
Have you always enjoyed writing, or is it a newer hobby?
Oh I’ve always enjoyed writing. I started when I was around 9 writing stories, but before that I’d always make some up in my head and when I hit my teens I found writing feelings down on paper really helped my cope with my emotions.
What does the future look like for your blog/business?
I would love for it to be a place where people all over the world can come and not feel alone when it comes to mental health, chronic illness, abuse. I’d also like to branch out into beauty as playing with makeup is a big passion of mine!!
Where does the name of your blog/business come from?
Simple, It’s my last name. I knew that I wanted to keep things easy and simple and (soppiness alert!) when I married my husband we both decided to take each other’s last names and that what the most proudest moment in my life, combining his with mine.
Can you give one piece of blogging/writing advice before you go?
Never forget why you started doing it. I started it for me so when I may not get so many views or subscriptions, instead of being down over it, I’ll remember I’m doing this for me and that will be my motivation to keep going. Do what you love and take no notice of any judgement you may get.
