This is a current snapshot of my life. I have always enjoyed writing and have hundreds of small notebooks cluttering up the house, so in April 2013 I felt that the obvious solution was to start a blog.
Since then, Suzie Speaks has grown beyond all expectations. I love the people and the community and I’m not being melodramatic when I say it has been the best form of therapy I have ever had. It has changed my life in ways I never could have imagined.
My posts reflect my mood and experiences and cover topics ranging from books, film, thoughts, daily life, teaching, friendship, relationships, things I find amusing, my adventures around my beloved city of Birmingham and my travel experiences. I blog about my life, my my loves, my family and friends.
I’m a thirty – five year old former teacher from England. I live with The Bloke – my fiance (and a very patient man) who has been my partner-in-crime for a very long time… and our elderly cat. I am in the process of changing my life and becoming self-employed and I am gradually figuring out what I should be doing with my time.
I am the creator of the weekly Twitter party – #SundayBlogShare – which allows bloggers to share their posts and meet new people. It is now one of the biggest blog sharing parties each weekend, trending in countries all over the world. Want to participate? Simply click the link for more information...
I am also the creator of the Big Up Your Blog Facebook group. Launching in January, it has become one of my favourite communities! Want to join? Click the link here
