Sunday Spotlight - 1st June 2014

In my life this week…


I’ve been blogging for about 8 months now, but it’s only been recently that I’ve started looking into vlogging (video blogging). I’ve always told myself I couldn’t do it because I’m too shy and would feel embarrassed being on camera, but this week I had a change of heart and decided I’d give it a go. I’m currently editing my first video (I’ve never used the software before so I’m trying to get to grips with it!) but keep your eyes peeled for new videos coming up on my YouTube channel. I thought I’d share one of my favourite vloggers, In the Frow, with you today, so check out her video below.

Cosmopolitan Blog Awards

To be honest I’m a bit behind with these blog awards, as I know there has been information floating around about them for quite a while now. I wasn’t going to put myself forward, but then I thought why not?! I’m unlikely to win, but if you don’t try you don’t know! If you enjoy reading my blog and would like to nominate me under the Best Newcomer category, I would be immensely grateful. Just click on this link and you’ll be taken to the page where you can nominate my blog. Thank you!

BPD Awareness Month

I’m not doing very well at keeping up with things this week, as this awareness month was actually in May, not June! But it doesn’t really matter, as awareness can be raised at any point in time. BPD stands for a mental illness called Borderline Personality Disorder, which is something I suffer with, along with hundreds of other people. I was diagnosed last year, and to be honest am still trying to get my head around exactly what it means. The biggest thing I’ve figured out so far is that Personality Disorders are surrounded by a huge amount of stigma, which is very unhelpful for both the sufferers and other people trying to understand them. I’m thinking of doing a bigger post about BPD at some point, but for now, if you’d like to know more, check out the Mind website for an easy to understand explanation.
