Wednesday Writer – THE RAMBLING SLOTH

We have an amazing writer to inspire you this week. Not only are her posts amazing but the blogger behind “The Rambling Sloth” is also inspirational. I am thrilled to present her as this week’s WEDNESDAY WRITER!

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DRINK WHILE WE ARE CONDUCTING THIS INTERVEW WITH YOU?

A lovely hot cup of coffee please! 

Coffee, Beans, Mug, Cup, Coffee Cup

Julie – I am also going to add a milk/cream jug and a sugar bowl as I don’t know how you take your coffee.

COULD YOU TELL US YOUR BLOGGING NAME AND THE NAME OF YOUR SITE PLEASE.

I’m Julie and I write at The Rambling Sloth 🦥 

WHEN DID YOU START BLOGGING?

Roughly 8 days in to The first UK Covid-19 lockdown end of March 2020.

WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?

Our local historic society asked for people to keep a diary of what life was like in lockdown for future generations.

Having suffered with mental health, anxiety and depression, I wanted to get the word out that it was ok not to be ok. I’ve always been a bright and bubbly people pleaser until I fell apart on September 2018 and had to go off sick from my Senior Management manufacturing position. I wanted people to see how I managed through that during a global pandemic.

WHICH IS THE MOST POPULAR POST ON YOUR SITE?

I honestly don’t know….. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

I did a quick scan over your posts Julie, and it looked to me as if the post with the most likes (but I have no idea how many views it received) was this one:

Day 100 of COVID-19 lockdown… what have we learned so far? 

WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT BLOGGING?

If I can help one person to realise they are not alone then it will have all been worth it.

Hot, Young People, Summer, Landscape

It also helps me clear my head and make sense of my own thoughts.

FOOD THAT MAKES YOU SMILE?

Hmmmmm probably pizza… every time 

Pizza, Food, Italian, Baked, Cheese

IF I WAS GOING TO SEND YOU FLOWERS AS A THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME INTERVIEW, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?

Wildflowers….   my hubby calls them weeds!! 

Something romantic about them though!

DO YOU HAVE A SONG? ONE THAT FITS YOU AS A PERSON OR YOUR LIFE?

Dear Me by Eric Hutchison 

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING IN LIFE?

Honestly not really. I just know that is gonna be a lovely place to be and I am going to be happy with the direction. 

WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU WANT YOUR BLOG TO TELL THE WORLD?

That is ok not to be ok.

That people are not always what they seem and everyone has difficulties to deal with no matter how good it might look on the outside.
