This has just come up in my Timehop feed from a year ago today. It is one of my most read and liked posts so I thought it worth sharing again, for those who have joined me in the past year and may not have seen it before.
I’m no expert, and make no claims to be. But I began this blog to share my experience in the hope that it would help others, and these thoughts are based on that. Even if sharing this again helps just one person, it’s worth doing.
A few weeks ago I was emailed via my Contact Me page by a website called TalkersTen.com, inviting me to write something for them. As you do, I did a little research to check out their site and their claim to get over 50,000 hits per day. They sent me a screenshot apparently proving that, but given that their Facebook page only had around 50 likes I was still a little sceptical.
