To spend or not to spend: Making wise choices within your business *

Not many business owners have money to burn. Unless you have seen a massive upsurge in custom and in your profits, you do need to be careful. Make the wrong decision, and you may face the financial consequences. But make the right decision, and you might even see a financial upswing. It’s a balancing act, but to see you through, you need to implement more than a little wisdom.

5 health risks migraines can cause if not treated *

Migraines are severe, painful and recurring headaches that are usually accompanied or preceded by sensory warning signs and other symptoms. The threat of a migraine attack is constant and frustrating. But, the worst thing about migraine is that it has been linked with several other health issues.

Dealing with anxiety and mobility on holiday *

If you’re a regular reader of this blog or you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I suffer with anxiety. It’s quite obvious really, I’ve spoken about it enough and I’m always as open and honest as I can possibly be with my mental health because I know that so many other people suffer too. My anxiety journey has been a long, complicated and quite frankly, weird one. I won’t go into the details here but you can find out more about my personal anxiety journey throughout my Mental Health category if you wish to know more! Going about my day to day life has become increasingly more difficult since I developed this condition. I get anxious about almost everything but over the years I’ve pushed and pushed myself and I’d say I’m in a semi-decent place at the moment in regard to my mental health.

Blogging for business: Supplementing your on-site earnings in style *

There are many reasons for starting a blog and writing about your passions can be a truly incredible way to earn a living. Nonetheless, this is only made possible by the ability to generate revenue.

If you knew the date of your death, how would you live your life? *

This tag line is what instantly drew me to this book and I knew I had to get my hands on a copy. I’d seen the title floating around a bit and heard some good things but not too much to make my expectations soar. Which I think is the best way to go into a book – with little to no expectations. But what I did know is that I was intensely interested in the story and what lay beneath the cover because even from the cover alone, I had a feeling this book would be special.

Family friendly outdoor activities *

I love an outdoor activity. I would much rather spend the day outside in the fresh air than cooped up inside somewhere and almost all of my day out activities – and even holiday activities – will mostly be outside. When I was a kid, my parents took me on plenty of days out and the majority of them I remember (or know from photos) were also outside. I think I was brought up to just enjoy being in the open air, rather than cooped up somewhere warm and stuffy and enjoying what the outdoors has to offer. Which is a lot! I’m still a big kid at heart and I rarely do “grown up” things like go to posh restaurants, go to the theatre or even go shopping anymore! My shopping is done online and my days out are outside and I probably wouldn’t have it any other way.

The follow for follow mentality in blogging

I want to talk about something. Something which has become more and more prominent in the blogging world over the last few years. At least for me anyway – it’s probably been like this for far longer but perhaps I haven’t been paying attention. It’s something I see almost on a daily basis; on Twitter and even in blog comments on my own blog. I feel that we have a bit of a “follow for follow” problem in blogging and I wanna have… a little chat… about it today (chat = rant).
