It’s that time of the month where you have an amazing chance to get to know the people who are on my sidebar this month, and this month there are some absolute crackers! Let’s start off with the amazing Jade. Jade is someone that I have spoken to for so long now and honestly she is an absolute sweetheart! If you’ve never visited her blog then you need to get over to Simply Jadey right now, but here is a fabulous chance
to get to know her a bit more, then put your feet up and let’s get started.
1. What was the reason you started your blog/business?
I initially started my blog back in April 2015. I’d been reading other people’s blogs ever since I can remember and I knew it was something that I wanted to do myself eventually. A friend at the time suggested that I started my own, because she knew that I enjoyed both writing and helping other people. So, that’s exactly what I did! I just wanted a platform where I could share my thoughts, my feelings and all of the things that I’m passionate about with like-minded people, who were able to appreciate my opinions and maybe take something out of each post, whether it be knowledge or some sort of comfort.
2. What have you learned through your blogging/business journey?
I have learned so many things throughout my blogging journey so far – more than I could have ever imagined when I first began writing on Simply Jadey. I have grown much more confidence, I have learnt how to say yes to more opportunities, I have been able to keep up a passion of mine for over a year and I have learnt how to create friendships with fellow bloggers. It’s been such an amazing, positive journey so far and I am so happy that I began!
3. How would you best describe your blog/business?
I would best describe my blog as being the perfect place to go if you are feeling a little down in the dumps. Even though I tackle tricky topics, such as mental health and the issues within society, I always try to turn those negatives into positives. My main aim is to make people feel better and as though they are not alone and I would say that my blog is a very reassuring place of safety, where there is always a way that you can find happiness. I mainly talk about mental health and deeper topics, but I also discuss beauty, fashion and a bit more about me from time to time, because I like to have a mixture of everything, so that it’s still fairly light-hearted.
4. Name something quirky that you can do, that we might not know about you.
If I’m honest, I do quirky things on a daily basis! I’m quite a crazy person when I want to be and its very rare that I’m not in fits of laughter! One kind of quirky thing that sticks out is that I can twist my elbows/arms around in an incredibly weird way.
5. What was one of your favourite posts to write or create? What about it did you enjoy the most?
One of my favourite posts was by far the one where I discussed having self-confidence. The amount of feedback I received was absolutely insane! I was so proud of it and the way it turned out, because I had worked really hard and all of that effort paid off when people were telling me how much they appreciate me talking about such a topic. I just enjoyed how personal and genuine it was. I don’t sugar-coat things. I say it as it is and I’m not afraid to share personal experiences either, which I think people value – the honesty and open-mindedness that I have.
6. Why should someone come and visit your blog/shop/business?
If someone is finding things a little tough, if they are struggling to hold onto hope or even if they just want to see reviews of the latest beauty products, then Simply Jadey is the place to go! Filled with love, honesty, encouragement, humour and positivity, as well as including personal experiences, I don’t think you will regret your stay for a second!
