This is Me!

The content on your website doesn’t have to be just about your business. Adding in posts about you, your journey to where you are now, your office, how you work and more helps your audience get to know you a bit better.

The know, like, trust factor is important when it comes to deciding whether to buy something. People like to buy from people, so sharing snippets of you and your life helps those thinking of buying from you build their trust in you and what you do.

There are lots of different ways you can do this. “A day in the life” “How I relax” “Five fun facts about me” “How I became a……” are all great ways of giving your audience a glimpse into your life and helps them get to know you.

This is me

So, to practice what I preach, I thought I’d share five interesting(ish) facts about me to help you get to know me a bit better. I’d love you to join in and share an interesting fact about you in the comments.

Here goes…..

I’m a redhead

I hated my hair colour when I was younger and have probably had more than my fair share of failed home colouring attempts over the years. As I’ve got older, I’ve learned to love it as it’s part of who I am. So, other than trying to cover up the ever-increasing number of grey hairs, my home colouring days are over (I think).

I was an international gymnast

I was middle of a Women’s Trio which is sports acrobatics rather than artistic gymnastics. We came 5th in the World Championships in Beijing, China in 1994. During our time in Beijing, we went to the Great Wall of China which was amazing. A Chinese couple wanted to take a photo of me with their son because of my hair colour. Said child was absolutely terrified and ran off because he’d never seen anyone with red hair before!

I sat a GCSE exam in a hotel room

I had to sit one of my GCSEs in a hotel room with my coach because we were travelling to a training camp in Bulgaria on the day I was supposed to sit it. She was a former teacher so I presume that’s why we were allowed to do it. It was GCSE law and I got a grade B.

I’m a mum via adoption

My husband and experienced infertility and decided treatment wasn’t for us. Adoption was always on our radar so we decided that was how we wanted to create our family. Our eldest daughter came home aged nine months old and our youngest was just under six months old. She came home on the date we met our eldest, four years later. If you’d like to find out about adoption, have a look at We Made a Wish which is the adoption and parenting magazine I edit.

I LOVE shoes

The more sparkles, the better. I have about 15 pairs stored in boxes on top of my wardrobe because the heels are too high for my ageing knees and I can’t walk in them. But just as you can never have too many notebooks, you can never have too many pairs of shoes.
