The first one…

‘Why the hell would anybody start a blog in 2015?’ That’s the thought that ran through my head after signing up to WordPress.

Back in 2003 before Instagram, Facebook, SnapChat and the Kardashians it might have been a better idea. When we weren’t so pre-occupied. Hell, there would definitely be a greater chance of someone actually reading it, so why now?

I wanted to create a world that contains smart, informative, and most importantly, HONEST accounts of life today. As the name suggests, blogs posts will be candid, which is pretty much how I live my life. I’m a terrible liar, so openness and honesty is my thing. Seriously, lying makes me a sweaty mess.

I’m just hoping people still remember how to read.

My plan is to cover topics that are important to me, and hopefully, important to you. I also want to include guest blog posts from smart women who have interesting stories to tell. I want to cover life as a late 20-something feminist who suffers from survives mental health problems (anxiety) and shares experiences that are relatable to the average (or exceptional) human.

You will never find a recipe for quinoa porridge on this blog.

A quick little bio about me: I’m 28, I live in Melbourne with my husband and my fur-child Samson, and I work in the media industry. My name is Steph.

Enjoy xo

    1. Hi Mel, thanks for your feedback. It can definitely be a lonely journey but please know you are not alone and there is a tonne of support available, and many people going through similar situations (I know that doesn’t make it any easier) Beyond Blue have some great resources available including a 24 hour phone number for support, I’d recommend giving them a call if/when you feel alone. In the meantime I hope my blog can be of some comfort Xo
