Welcome to I Don’t Blog, where I most definitely do.

I don’t do a lot of things, in the same way that I don’t blog: I don’t love great food, I don’t love a solid debate, I don’t love sharing my experiences with divorce. . . you get the drift. 😉

I’ve been oversharing online since ’99. Many of you have been following me since then, and I am honoured to have made so many friends across the globe thanks to blogging. I have the very best audience, and I’m thankful to each and every person who reads my words.

I’m an award-winning writer, the owner of Clippo, curator of stories for the (sadly paused due to, well, life) #ShowMeYourBrave project, speaker, blogger, and I was the well-known allergy writer for YMC (until my son was cleared of all food allergies — hooray!).

I’m also a freelance content and copywriter, and you can read about the services I provide at Backbone Copy.
