The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Ever wanted to try something totally new? Me too!

So here I am, about to start out on the journey of freelance writing and starting my own blog. There’s so many quotes about new journeys – here’s one of my favourites:

“The only impossible journey is the one you never begin” – Anthony Robbins

I know this quote has been featured on lots of other blog posts around the internet so you’ve probably heard it or read it before. But it speaks a simple truth.


I’ve loved writing and reading for as long as I can remember but it’s only been recently that I decided to pursue my passion. Why? Because I was (and still am to be honest) afraid of failing; of putting myself out there. But I realise now I don’t need to. I am allowed to as a human, fail sometimes. To not do an awesome job. I am not perfect. The real failure would be to not try and do the thing every day that makes me excited.

So what’s it all going to be about?

Here on my blog you will find posts relating to all things bookish! Book reviews, lists and a heap more! As I’m based in beautiful Melbourne, Australia I will also on occasion be showing off the wonderful attractions this area has to offer. (Looking at you cafe scene). 

I encourage you to begin with me! What are you going to take on that you’ve been putting off? It’s okay to be scared. But let’s be brave too.
