My 100th post!

‘The currency of blogging is authenticity and trust’ – Jason Calacanis

Wow! When I started my blog two years ago, I really didn’t know what I was doing! I’d never even read a blog, let alone knew how to write one. I didn’t know if anyone would be interested in my ramblings or my tiny tweaks. But I read the quote above very early on and I knew that I would never be anything but authentic. This is me. I’m a ‘what you see is what you get’ person. I don’t play games and you can trust me 100%. If that was what blogging was about, then I wanted to give it a try. I wasn’t sure how successful it would be – would people actually want to read it? Was it something I would continue to do long-term? I didn’t know. But I had various reasons for starting it and I can say for sure that it has really helped me on my journey. Researching what to talk about and then putting my thoughts into writing has been incredibly therapeutic.

‘Blogging is a beautiful skill to express your feelings and emotions to the right people out there’ (

Then there are the blogs of the amazing people I follow. Often motivational or practical, sometimes beautiful or funny, occasionally sad, every blog I have read, liked or commented on has spoken to me when I needed it. It has shown me that there are people going through all sorts of things who are happy to share their journey or their thoughts with whoever wants to read them. To all you bloggers out there, you are amazing!

So now we are here, my 100th post. It comes at a time when I am wondering if blogging is still for me. I enjoy it, but I don’t prioritise it. I’m in a totally different place in my life than I was when I started, back in 2021. We are beyond the pandemic, life has changed, and I am a different person. I have learnt the importance of doing what is right for me, without feeling guilty or pressured. Blogging has really helped. Tiny tweaks have really helped. Reading about others and their journeys has really helped. But life is busy and there are so many other things I could be doing. Many of these I have written about over the past two years – standing on one leg, doing press ups against the wall, deep breathing, mindfulness, getting outside, seeing friends, the list goes on. It’s a dilemma – I love doing the research, exploring new ways to achieve health and happiness, one tiny tweak at a time. That, for me, is something I am sure I will always do. Sharing what I’ve learnt is fun too, especially when you tell me how much you enjoy reading my posts!

‘Blogging is not rocket science. It’s about being yourself and putting what you have into it’ (unknown)

Maybe what I’m saying is that I need to blog less for a while. Maybe I will try fortnightly blogs instead of every Saturday. I still love the idea of tiny tweaks, it works for me and I think that maybe it works for some of you too! I said earlier that I have learnt the importance of doing what is right for me – much of that learning has come from the research I have done for this blog. I can honestly say that I am in a better place. My health is improving one tiny tweak at a time (still lots of work required on this one) and my happiness has definitely improved. I am calmer, more confident in myself, I take time to be me and to do what I want to do. I still don’t drink enough water, I could definitely do more exercise and the gratitude journal never really got off the ground, but hey ho! They are tiny tweaks, things to pick and choose from to see what works and what can be fitted into our lives.

So I hope you will understand that I if I do decide to blog less, then it is not because I no longer believe in the tiny tweaks method (I absolutely do) or that I am no longer reading blogs (I am) or that I don’t want to share my thoughts (of course I do!) but I simply want to write when I want to write. Go me!

Until next time xx

  2. Congratulations! Milestones like that are always celebrating — and you’ll look back to see yourself surpassing the 100-post goal. But as the good old fable says: Slow and steady wins the race.

  3. Congratulations on your 100th post Cathy! That’s definitely something to celebrate! You know, your blog is about growing and changing, and maybe that’s where you’re at in your blogging journey as well. I’d say listen to your intuition and do what you feel is best for you. All the best to you!
