Quick update: Uphill Writer is jetting off to Malta

Just a quick update on where Uphill Writer is off to this June!

Jetting off to Malta by Uphill Writer

Hello everyone! I’m so sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. I’ve been a busy bee and have many posts waiting in my drafts, but for now, I have some exciting news to share.

As most of you know, my brother and I started Inkfish Digital a few years back. It’s a copywriting business where we create content and tell stories for our clients as well as handle social media. Well, we’ve worked with some great companies, but thanks to our awesome clients based in Malta, I’m leaving South Africa for the very first time!

Trying to conceive – The reality of wanting a family

Trying to conceive. Falling pregnant. Having a baby. All of these phrases sound so innocent, but in reality, it’s so much more than that.

Trying to conceive - Uphill Writer

I’m not shy in chatting about how much Daniel and I would love to have a family. We’ve been married for more than 3 years now and more than a year of that has been spent trying to conceive.

Wanting to have a baby as much as Daniel and I do, but each month being disappointed, is something that wears on your mind. It’s the sort of situation that turns the world into a black and white canvas. I’m either pregnant or not pregnant. It’s one of the few situations in life that is a complete. You’re either entirely pregnant or not. No grey area.

Fantastic South African Bloggers and Where to Find Them

South African Bloggers from all around the country have been brought together on Facebook.

South African Bloggers Network

In 2015 I found myself searching for a place to connect with bloggers like myself and after finding nothing that catered for South Africans specifically, I decided to change that. I was searching for a Facebook group that made it easy to share blog posts and ask for help, but seeing as one didn’t exist, I created the South African Bloggers group.

All I wanted to do was connect with fellow South African bloggers, but I never expected it to grow as quickly as it did.

Good morning, hi, hello there.

You know how we all have something we generally don’t like about ourselves? For some it may be their bodies or their hair, for others it may be their inability to do math on the fly. My self pet hate is my ability to ignore myself.

I know I’m not alone here.

I ignore myself and my love for writing words on the pages of this blog far more than I let myself indulge. It’s madness really, isn’t it? If this is important to me, I should make it a priority.
