It's Blogtober Baby

It's Blogtober Baby.

Only I would start a blog the day before Blogtober! I've been meaning to give blogging a go for a while now and after hearing about it from some lovely blogger friends I've met online, I thought I would take the plunge, throw myself into the deep end and see if it's for me. And what better way to start than with Blogtober...

For anyone who hasn't heard of or taken part in Blogtober before, its ultimately a challenge for bloggers to publish a blog post every single day during the month of October. There are no strict rules on topics to cover, its just there to encourage more writing and creativity. 

Some people like to map out what each days blog post will cover before hand, others publish their topic lists on their Day One post, but I will be winging it. I have a few ideas, but haven't actually written anything in advance, giving myself an even bigger challenge, but hey, that's what makes it fun right! 

Love Sophie, MMC x

  7. Welcome to Blogtober! I have been blogging for many years and, even if I give up at times, I always start again. I'd never heard of Blogtober until a few days ago either, but I think it's just the challenge I need. Good luck on yours! Like you, I also haven't written anything in advance.

Baby Loss Awareness Week: Guest Post with Booberrit’s Naomi

Baby Loss Awareness Week, which takes place from 9th - 15th October aims to raise awareness about pregnancy and baby loss in the UK. We are joined by Booberrit's Naomi who has been kind enough to share her story with us.  * TRIGGER WARNING* OUR STORY For us it was late September when what started as spotting (at work) ended in a week of harrowing physical and emotional pain (in hospital) which turned us from ‘parents to be’ (with hopes and dreams ) into a statistic. In the UK, it is estimated that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss during pregnancy or birth. Around this time each year I take a long walk to watch the leaves fall and reflect. There’s something both beautiful and reassuring about the falling autumnal leaves. Trees endure losing everything through the bitter cold of winter, because they know Spring is just around the corner. CHANGES My miscarriage was 5 years ago now. At that time awareness and support for baby loss were lacking. In fact, because of the mental a

World Mental Health Day 2020

Unfortunately we live in a world where if you have something visibly wrong with you, you get all the sympathy. People care and are willing to do anything to help.  But if you tell people you are depressed, nobody knows how to react and people run away from having to deal with a scenario they are not used too. I think most people have suffered with mental health one way or another in their lifetime, even if they don’t know it. There is nothing to be ashamed of, but unfortunately stigma surrounding mental health is still common. I may not be a physical friend to you or even a friend at all, but if you are reading this and just need to talk to someone, I am always here. If you are feeling lost, lonely, finding life tough, just remember talking about it is always better than keeping it inside and trying to ignore it.  While stigma continues to exist, it can be eliminated with more education around it and awareness of the different mental illnesses that are out there. To help gain a better
