I had the opportunity to have an amazing conversation with the fabulous Charlotte, who is not only a fabulous mental health advocate on Instagram, but she also has her own blog page as well. Charlotte is from Sheffield and loves to travel. You can find much more information about her by checking out her blog right here, https://burstingmybubbles.com/worsbrough-reservoir/ Over on Instagram you will see a tonne of positivity, and an impressive layout of videos, reels, and don’t forget to take your morning brew and share this with her in the mornings. One of my personal favourite activities. When we met we had a talk about a few things, it was a very exciting time as Charlotte had just celebrated the release of her first product online as well. Read on to see the conversation we had, and to check out the links where you can find more information about @burstingmybubblesblog
I have some questions, but in general it is more of a getting to know you and more about your page.
First of all, can you tell me about what was it that inspired you to start your page?
Do you want me to voice note or type lovely?
Up to you. if you can type it will be best for me for writing the blog but what is easier for you.
So, for me I’m incredibly scared of a lot of things. And I live in a little bubble. So, to push myself I sometimes have to pop that bubble I do have a blog post on it of that would help?
ooohhhh I can happily include the link to your blog that would be super useful.
Pushing ourselves out of the bubble is sometimes the hardest thing ever.
I’ll send you the post that addresses that at the end.
Amazing thank you.
It’s so hard to push ourselves sometimes and I’ve really had to work at it.
Which came first? your blog or your Instagram?
They came the exact same time as I joined a blogging programme.
Yeah by @anitahendrieka!
How did you find that?
May have a look.
Do she’s amazing.
How long have you been running your page for now?
I found her by choice, I was at that stage when I knew I didn’t want to do what I was doing anymore but I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to do a travel blog but didn’t know how to do it. I came across her and she has her own blogging course, honestly, she is that amazing, I have renewed my membership with her now for my fourth time, I have been working with her now for over a year. She’s amazing. Working with her for the past year I’ve got my own accommodation sponsorship, I’ve got my own products and stuff, it is really good.
That does sound amazing.
I will look her up.
Since you have had your page up and running what have you been pleased to see? What have been your wow moments?
I know one of them.
Getting accommodation and brand sponsorships, creating my own products, being able to help people!
They are all pretty big things, aren’t they?
Sooo what inspired the creation of your first products? The Travel Anxiety Kit.
It’s something me and my mum both suffer from and we couldn’t find any help so did it ourselves.
Amazing, so if there isn’t something that you need, then create it yourself.
With the creation of your posts, your blog, and obviously your products, how do you keep yourself motivated?
It can be hard, and I definitely have my bad MH days. My partner is incredibly supportive, I’m a coach myself so my clients keep me going, and my family!
A good support around you is always helpful, I was going to ask what do you do to help yourself on the bad days? How do you support your own mental health when you’re supporting so many other people online and in your role as a coach?
So, I create a personalised plan for myself and my clients. I give myself an attainable to do list so I feel successful.
I know you’ve kind of answered it with the having the support of your partner, but it is there anything else that you do?
I’ll go out even if it’s just on my doorstep
And I make sure I eat!
I am also really open about my MH, so I talk about how I’m feeling
Also, what are your hopes for the future of your blog and page?
I’m transferring it into being my full-time job.
That sounds so exciting.
You are so inspirational.
Those were all the actual questions I have, was there anything that you specifically wanted me to add into the blog for you?
If you send me the details for your blog, I will be sure to include that in
Thank you for inviting me!
Here is a link to my blog.
Perfect thank you. Are you only on here? do you have a Facebook/twitter account that you post on
I do have a fb group.
Eeek thank you so much!
What an inspirational young lady, who has taken strength from her own anxieties and used this to create something that can be used to help many others. Using social media platforms to send positive messages and share hope to others around. Having a blog page that is accessible and full of useful information that can be referred back to again and again. Charlotte’s sense of humour, character, and quirkiness comes through in all that she does, and her willingness to support others is an inspiration to all.
