I named this blog The Ting Thing because ‘Ting’ means ‘beauty‘ and it is also part of my name. It actually came about when I was enjoying a drink with a linguist friend of mine, who encouraged me to start this blog and to create content after I was made redundant from my job as a business consultant.
The primary focus of my blog began as beauty but I very quickly realised that my passions in life are not solely beauty. I wanted the creative freedom to write about things that interest me and so I guess this has become a lifestyle blog over time. I really think it has become more ‘me’ over time really.
My career has taught me several things including how it is important to have a good team around you. As a blogger, that team is the community around me. Which is how it came to be that I got involved in Birmingham Bloggers UK with Laura from Full to the Brum. We relaunched the blogger group, affectionately known as Brum Bloggers, in April 2016 and have grown it into something rather special. We have regular meet ups and we run blogger outreach through the group too.
