It’s been nearly two months since I last wrote a blog so I have chosen to give you an update as I’m feeling aware of my lack of productivity. As a recent finalist in the Mums in Business Blogging Award, this is ridiculous. I started to question why I haven’t actually completed a blog recently; there have been several half-written from ‘Why I chose Special School over Mainstream’ to more recently ‘Why I Chose to Self Distance Early’ but I’ve not completed them; so today I give you a T21 Hub Update.
MIBA Blogger Finalist
Earlier this year I started to question, panic and feel completely at a loss about what I should, shouldn’t be blogging about. In the haste to have more views on my blog and understand more about SEO and google I got caught up in the world of learning and not doing. I got caught up in the world of Imposter Syndrome (why would anyone read this) and I got caught up in the world of I’ll do it tomorrow; as we all know tomorrow never comes.
Updates, as I haven’t been doing anything I have been supporting the awesome charity, Wouldn’t Change a Thing with their twitter account. I have been supporting the amazing local Bury Parent Forum Group Bury2Gether to create and support more inclusive events on top of my roles with the fastest growing online women’s community group Mums in Business Association as both local coordinator for Prestwich and Bury and as their Social Media Manager.
Update, whilst I didn’t win the MIBA Blogger Award I did win the MIBA Pay It Forward Category, yay!
I have still continued to raise awareness and share resources for Down Syndrome via my daughters page Ellie’s Secrets and this always be my number one priority. However, I have found a love for social media over the years and have recently started to share what I have learnt with others. I have set up a new Facebook group to support other carers who are working to understand social media platforms so they can increase their awareness See SENse and over the coming months, I’ll be sharing more resources with you all. Feel free to contact me if you would like to know more
And that my friend is my update!
My final thoughts to you all and to share what I have learnt recently and given unprecedented times with the Coronavirus are
– Don’t put off doing what you need to do
– Relax, aim for your best not perfection
– Go with your gut instinct at all times, it’s often right
– Ask for help then take the advice (don’t ask it from everyone though, it’ll get conflicting)
– Be yourself, learn daily; don’t aspire to be someone else
– Be kind to yourself and if you’ve got through the day, you’re winning at life!
Thanks for reading, I would love to know how you are right now and I will be back sooner rather than later
Until Next Time
