First things first – welcome and thank you for reading this! This is my first blog post and I’m excited to be starting out in the blogosphere! It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a while and now I’m actually doing it, I’m a little nervous, but mostly eager to get started and create something awesome in my little corner of the internet. So hello and happy reading!
You’ll see my (inventive, ahem) play on the word positive, as my blog is called The Positiff Blog. This is my little place on the internet to share positive stories, posts and pictures whilst creating a community for those of us who want to build each other up, not tear each other down, something that I think happens way too much in society, especially online and on social media.
What’s this blog about?
Spreading positivity through my every day lifestyle! I like to think I’m a glass-half-full kinda person. And whenever one of my friends or family is having a down day, I tend to say ‘take the positive from this’ and go on to list them! This then sparked something inside me, an urge to share this mindset with as many people as possible.
Why have I started this blog?
Originally wanting to bake and blog my recipes, I decided that I wanted to write about so much more than that! I have just returned from a year of travels, what was undoubtedly the best year of my life so far. However, whilst I was away, I went through some really tough times and lots of things happened at home that I had no control over which left me feeling helpless. For the most part of my travels I was travelling solo, so I had to dig deep and remain upbeat in order to carry on and not crumble and book that flight home. With the support of friends and family, and spurring myself on, I realised that negativity gets you nowhere. I found myself listing the positives of every situation I had been dealt and that’s where the idea of The Positiff Blog was born.
Sadly I was made redundant just before Christmas and this has really helped me stay focused by channeling my energy and creativity into something new. This blog is for funny stories, real life ramblings, recipes to make you happy and a helluva lot more.
And why do I want you to stick around?
The blogging community seems so rewarding and fulfilling, it would be even better to meet new people and discuss and share our posts with each other. I would love you to continue on this new venture with me! If you like yummy recipes, funny anecdotes and real life stories, clothes, travel and a whole host of other stuff, lets chat!

With love & positiff vibes
