Bloggers Whose Positivity and Content Inspire Me ft. Cross Dimensional

A little while ago, I spoke about my desire to take part in more collaborative blogging. Milind from Cross Dimensional was one of the first people to contact me, suggesting that we talk about positivity. Today, Milind will be sharing positive things that are happening in society despite all the negative news – that should be super interesting so make sure to check that out as soon as it’s live! When the topic of positivity was first brought up, I started thinking about the support I felt as a newcomer to the blogging world, and how this has continued throughout my writing-on-the-internet journey; this is what I’ve decided to discuss over here on my blog.

My Thoughts Entering the Blogging World

Coming into the blogging world, I was a little apprehensive. Let’s face it, the internet doesn’t have the best reputation for friendliness. You hear about cyber bullying, trolls, and harsh comments being thrown around the world wide web like flyers at a promotional event for flyers. That was oddly specific, but I’m just going to go with it. The prospect of having all of that negative energy directly dumped on me sent tingles of fear up my spine.

Pressures of Growing Up Female ft. My 20s Taught Me

Growing up female comes with a whole host of challenges, much like a christmas chocolate selection box where an array of horrors disguised in tempting, shiny foil nestle inside. Of course, there are plenty of great things about being a woman, but this post is about the times when sadly that is not the case. More specifically, this post is going to focus on one of the most commonly discussed issues of growing up female: the pressure to look a certain way, or do certain things to be ‘beautiful’.

In a simple, kind world, we would be able to appreciate everyone’s differences, and also spend way less time thinking about them. What I think is even worse than the pressure to fit into a particular look, is the underlying concept that a woman’s worth can be based on her appearance; both how she naturally exists and through what she actively does or does not do with her body. Yes, it’s nice to acknowledge beauty, but do we really want to live in a society in which this is, so much of the time and evident across all media platforms, the most important aspect of being a woman?

Want To Be a Featured Writer?

Before we jump into the post… In celebration of hitting 700 blog followers, I thought I’d do something a little different. Publishing this is going to push me out of my comfort zone, and is really not something I’d ever have seen myself writing a post about. Yet, I feel some great things could come out of this, and it’s important to challenge ourselves if we can see positives on the other side. So, in the spirit of challenging comfort zones, here goes nothing…


The last two months I have been plagued by one of the most common blogger complaints: a lack of time and energy to dedicate proper attention to blogging. I have struggled to stay on top of blogging, having written only nine posts so far in April compared to the eighteen I wrote in January. I have had so much going on and so much uncertainty colouring my life that creativity and connection have fallen to the wayside. This saddens me.

I’m Blogger of the Month on Another Station, Another Mile by Rachel!

When Rachel, from Another Station, Another Mile, reached out to me a couple of weeks ago wondering if I’d like to be featured on her blog, I was delighted! This is her first post in a new series, ‘Blogger of the Month’ and I love the idea behind this. This kind of support for other people’s content is something I love to see in the blogging community and I will definitely be keeping up with her blogger recommendations over the coming months – it’s always exciting to read about writers I haven’t encountered before.
