What I Did Before I Became a Blogger

What I Did Before I Became a Blogger

I’ve been blogging for 8 years now, and my career has completely changed because I started writing.

I did a few different things before I became a blogger and I thought I’d let you in on some of them: …

Five Ways to Improve Your Sleep Hygiene

Although I’m not someone who very often struggles to get to sleep (Husband is often in awe of how quickly I fall asleep after my head hits the pillow), I do often awaken feeling as though I haven’t had a very good night’s sleep, and I think a lot of that is to do with my lack of sleep hygiene.
