Car – day 3 of #Blogtober2017

Part of the point of Blogtober is to challenge yourself. The title 'Car' is a lot more difficult than I expected. I grew up around car crazies and 'race bunnies'. I like speed. I like glossy, shiny things. I like engineering. Basically, I like cars. I just don't really want to talk about them. So … Continue reading Car – day 3 of #Blogtober2017

Babies – day 2 of #Blogtober2017

Well, it's been a long, hard day here at Sophie's Voice House and I got home to children who were both tired and happy. Tired because they don't lie in over the weekend (although they don't wake me up now either - until they're hungry) or use it for relaxation purposes at all, apparently. Happy … Continue reading Babies – day 2 of #Blogtober2017

All about you…day 1 of Blogtober 2017

Well, all about me - and, thank goodness. After all, I never talk about myself, do I? I decided to answer a selection of random questions I've been asked in the 8 years I've been doing this.

The Sophie’s Voice pick of Instagrammers…

To be honest, the prospect of writing a post about my favourite pretty pictures has been making my mouth water for a couple of weeks now. The side of me that loves flounces and ruffles is as intrinsic to my personality as the part of me that's obsessed with campaigning for better sex education. If … Continue reading The Sophie’s Voice pick of Instagrammers…

Today’s favourite recipe – Day 19 of the Blogtober Challenge

I love food - I spent a large part of my adult life feeling hungry and I can cook. There's not much more depressing than loving the taste of canapes but having to turn them down at every party you attend. Well, not having to - except in my mind. I found out I was pregnant … Continue reading Today’s favourite recipe – Day 19 of the Blogtober Challenge

Day 17 of the Blogtober Challenge – my top tips for new bloggers

Put simply...just write. It's all I can say. Many people gave me advice on how to make a blog readable and it all came down to 'use your own voice'. Well, to make a voice sing beautifully, you have to exercise it. Also, and it's obvious when you think about it, if you don't write … Continue reading Day 17 of the Blogtober Challenge – my top tips for new bloggers
