When That Noise Is Mine began in October 2016 I was a completely different person going through a period of change.
My marriage had ended I thought my life was over. I wasn’t sure how I could function without the man I loved. I wasn’t sure how I could live with the immense pain and grief I was feeling.
How could I do this on my own?
Then I started on a journey and I began writing about the journey. I faced many challenges as I settled into this new role as single mother and single woman. Gradually I rebuilt my life, I’ve stumbled at times but I have now emerged from that period of life ready to take on the world as a new woman.
The past 2 or 3 years have been a time of both immense pain and extraordinary growth. The divorce is now something that happened to me rather than something that consumes my life. I am more than a divorce – I am a Mum, a student, a business owner, a blogger, a writer, a friend, a daughter, a sister and a strong woman.
I am not a divorce.
I look forward to bringing you stories about the hilarity and chaos of my life with 4 kids, my goals to become a successful business woman and an exciting new journey to find love again.
I am also a big believer in building people up. In showing them their worth, in teach others self respect. In showing others that you can loose everything and rebuild to make “everything” all over again and you can do it on your own. In fact, you’re better off doing it on your own before finding someone else to share life with.
I have put together a fantastic team of guest bloggers who participate in debates and write feature posts.
Divorce is said to be one of the hardest things you’ll ever go through and I completely agree, for me it was like a death. But as with everything in life, you pick up and move on. From time to time I will still write about the end of my marriage mostly through Divorcedmoms.com. My earlier posts about the end of my marriage and how I coped are under Chapter 1 up on the main menu.
Welcome to That Noise Is Mine – The Next Chapter, enjoy the ride!
Working with me
Running a blog and gathering a loyal audience is not easy, making a business out of it is even harder. I have a lot of respect for a single individual who has managed to form any kind of community, because it takes hard work, dedication and a lot of soul journeying.
I love writing. There is something very powerful about written words. It gives more opportunity for the reader to reflect, unlike a video or podcast which tends to be more passive, words connect in a way that sound can’t.
Small loyal audiences are very powerful. I’ve always believed that, and I have chosen to keep my audience small and my blog with very little advertising or endorsement.
I love discovering new products, brands and bloggers though!
To keep the integrity of my blog, I’d love to work with small up and coming brands, products and bloggers, to introduce my readers to you and vice versa.
