2019 was a great year for the blog. I’m so happy I carried on the goal I had set myself in 2018 to write two blog posts a month. After such success I couldn’t just give it up, and so in 2019 not only did I continue but I dreamed bigger and better, featuring stories from other people on the blog.
Not only was that one of my biggest achievements but it also brought me so much joy. It was awesome to put a spotlight on different mental health issues and raise awareness of what others have been going through. It was fantastic to give other people a chance to share their story, and I was so grateful they trusted me. And of course, getting feedback from people that they like reading the blog posts, or that it helped them in one way or another is always the best.
With all of the above I had to decide how I was going to take things to the next level for 2020, and the timing was perfect. For a while now, I’ve been dreaming of launching my own mental health platform. A place to host all of my content, grow my YouTube channel and launch my own services. It’s also time to separate my identity as a marketer from my identity as a mental health advocate.
In January 2020 I’ll be launching That’s Mental: a platform to talk freely about mental health. You can see a sneak preview here, and from January onwards all blog posts will be found there. I hope you like it, and I look forward to picking up again in the New Year!
