What am I worth?

To know your own worth... What is worth and how is it established? Well, the Oxford dictionary states that its 'the level at which someone or something deserves to be valued or rated.' Socially people consider worth as where you stand within society, how important you are and how much you contribute? On a personal level, it is simply how much you are loved.


As a blogger my worth is assessed all the time... How many page views do I have? What is my current domain authority? How many followers do I have? and this is constantly asked and searched for from others directed at me.

It could be very easy to get bogged down by all of this but in perfect honesty, I would prefer that one person read my posts and loved what they were reading than millions who didn't really care.

As my blog has grown in the past 6-9 months I am getting emails from companies asking for me to work with them... a lot I just delete, some I read and others get a reply. I want to work with others who have a clear mission. There is nothing I love more than writing about what I'm passionate about.

At the start of the year, I helped write a chapter for a book (voluntarily) because it was about something that I feel so strongly about. I have written for a charity (link below) and I'm currently in the process of writing for another because yet again I feel so strongly about these topics.

I feel like a lot of the time bloggers and everyone gets bogged down by how much money they can earn etc and they use that to assess their worth. I think worth is more than that it is about the positive impact you leave behind you. If my blog helps at least one person I will be happy, or even makes someone smile, or that someone just looks forward to whenever I decide to sporadically post. KNOW YOUR OWN WORTH is basically the message of this post!

  1. Love this! Honestly, it can get sickening when you get bogged down with the numbers about your 'worth' especially when brands say no to collaborating with you because of it. It's not worth it though, blogging should be enjoyable!

    I hope you have a lovely new year! xx

  2. Yes! It is so important to know your own worth! I hardly look at my stats, simply because I blog because I love it.

    1. Yes exactly doing what you love is far more important than any numbers.

Interrailing around Europe...

How do you begin to explain one of the best experiences of your life? Seeing the world (well 5 countries) and making the best memories. This is my journey interrailing around Europe with my friend Amy.

Lets start at the beginning in Paris, which we were lucky to see, considering we narrowly made our train. On your interrail ticket it says to arrive at the station half an hour before your journey, be there an hour before! We arrive in Paris and after wandering up several wrong streets we find our hostel, Which is basic at best and the facilities were indescribable and its probably best I don't describe the shower anyways... Nevertheless we set out for the afternoon in true tourist spirit and saw as much of Paris as we could and getting the most candid photos possible. The Eiffel Tour, the Musee du louvre and the arc de Triomphe all featuring. The second day in Paris was spent in Disney land where Amy achieved her ambition in owning gold sparkly ears. To say this day was magical wou…

The eductaion system: a converation...

After recently finishing sixth form I wanted to reflect on my journey through secondary school; express mine and others views on the education system in the UK, the positives and the negatives. This post includes my views and also the views of others. Also enjoy our leavers and prom photos.

Applying for university...

I applied to university in October 2017 and will be starting in September 2018..hopefully! I was accepted on to 5/5 of the courses I applied to with 4 conditional offers and one unconditional offer, these offers included 2 russel group universities. I did university tests and completed an individual interview as well as a group interview. This was a highly requested post and as the next year are starting to look around universities and complete UCAS applications it was a perfect time to write this post.
Personal Statement Your personal statement really needs to stand out, you need to show that you are excited and engaged in the course but NEVER use the word passion!!! (Everyone uses it and its better to prove you have a passion rather than just stating it.) Its good to do an introduction - why are you excited about applying for the course, show an interest in a particular part and show your knowledge. The second paragraph you could talk about your current courses - what you have enjo…
