Hello there and welcome to this week’s #PoCoLo a friendly linky where you can link any post published in the last week. If you were here last week, it was great to see you and if you’re new here this week, then you’re very welcome. Both Morgan and I know you’ll find some great posts to read, and encourage you to pop over to some of the posts linked and take the time to leave a comment or two so that everyone benefits from some extra love.
I’m not quite sure where this week has gone, it’s been one that’s been windy though. So far I’ve managed to avoid the rain, but it’s been blowy wandering around Greenwich, and not even on the river banks. It’s also been one where everyone seems to be watching what’s happening in Parliament, and whatever your stance on Brexit, it’s a complete mess isn’t it?
I know I’m ready for this weekend, we don’t have much planned and that’s the beauty of it. I’m hoping to spend some time crafting and making progress with my next photo book. And I don’t think I even mind what the weather does, although MOH will, he’s off on one of his mad cycles on Sunday.
My photo this week is one from Gardeners’ World Live last June, the colours just called out to me - I think it’s a echium, a plant that grows tall cone like flowers which are much loved by butterflies and bees and remind me of our trip to Jersey a few years ago where we saw them everywhere. Definitely our plant of the holiday, and yes, often there’s one plant that stands out more than most so is adopted as our plant emblem.
Blogger Showcase: Megan from Not Scared
1 Who are you?
My name is Megan. I am a 29 year old Canadian blogger. I own the blog Not Scared.
2 How did you discover blogs/blogging?
I discovered blogging just by reading other blogs on the internet. I started to wonder what it was all about and started to do research.
3 Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I wanted to be heard. Also, I wanted something in my life that I could say that I did; that was mine. In addition, I suffer from bipolar disorder and I wanted a way to connect with others who suffer from mental health issues. I also wanted a way to educate and promote mental health. Hopefully, I can also solve some of the symptoms experienced by others.
4 What do you find most challenging?
Right now, my biggest challenges are search engine placement and generating traffic. My blog only launched on January 3, 2019. Thus, I am a very new blog and I am still trying to gain exposure.
5 What is your favourite topic to write about?
So far, essential oils and how they can help with mental health.
6 Are you blogging for fun or do you have goals?
7 What is your favourite thing about blogging?
That I can be heard; that I have an outlet.
8 Have you ever attended a blogging conference and if so, what did you think?
No just launched.

My three best posts have been:
10 Describe yourself in three words!
