The importance of mental wellbeing

Mental health and wellbeing is not something that I feel has a big enough focus when it comes to being a digital content creator and influencer. So much of the job, which is as much that as a way of life, involves putting yourself out there online for others to see, hear, watch and interact […]

Working for Free is Bullsh*t!

“Don’t work for free”, “Free doesn’t pay my mortgage”, Are all phrases you’ll often heard spouted on a fairly regular basis by many in the blogging world.
