Mental Health Blogger Meet: Register Your Interest

Mental Health Blogger Meet

This evening I took part in the #thegirlgang Twitter chat and mentioned that I'd been thinking about organising a mental health blogger meet in the UK. The response was preeetty huge, so let's get the ball rolling!

I have absolutely no idea how this is going to work yet, but first I want to get an idea of numbers.

If you're interested in coming along to a meet to discuss blogging away the mental health stigma, leave me a comment below and I'll get compiling a list. I already have a number of names but I figured this would be a lot more efficient. 

Please include the following info to make my life easier:
  1. Your name
  2. Where you live, what major cities you're close to whether you'd easily be able to get to Manchester/Leeds (or London if we were to do a North and South meet)
  3. Your email address
  4. Your blog url
  5. Your Twitter handle
I know this started within #thegirlgang, but absolutely anyone will be welcome (provided you have a blog or are looking to start one).

After I've got a list together I'll have a brainstorm and figure out the best way to do this. Thanks guys, and hopefully see some of you in the near future x

P.s. Can everyone share this post using #mhmeet?

P.p.s if anyone has any thoughts/ideas, feel free to email them over!

P.p.p.s. sorry about the rushed photo and post...

A Newly Vegetarian Meat Lover: Some Thoughts & Feelings

Linda Mccartney Meat Substitutes
Well, here's a blog post I never thought I'd be writing! You guys: I'm a vegetarian. An actual real life vegetarian. Like, I'm a herbivore. I haven't touched meat in five whole months* and I'm pretty proud of myself, honestly. I never thought I'd be able to do it for so long.

But wait, before you close the tab, this post isn't gonna be all about convincing you to go veggie too; I just want to note down a few of my thoughts, feelings and observations, as much for my own retrospective benefit as yours.

*alright so I forgot to change my plane food on the way home from Indonesia and also I ate a chicken pie my friend cooked for me the day I got home out of politeness, but these instances were still almost 4 months ago and I was an emotional wreck/jet-lagged respectively so we can just sweep that under the rug and carry on...
