TMI Tuesday – July 19th 2016

My first TMI for a while, but glad to join in and share
1. Hi there. Tell us about your job and what you do?
I work in the UK health service. My job is about improving the quality and value for money of maternity services. I work with Doctors, midwives and families who use the service so while I no longer provide healthcare services myself, I am close to them. It is less stressful and definitely easier on the body than when I was nursing.
2. What piece of advice would you give to a co-worker?
Remember who we are here for – not ourselves but those who use the services. But remember we are not indispensable, there is nothing in our job that can’t be left till tomorrow. 
3. What 2 pieces of advice would you give to a new blogger?
Decide what your blog is about and who you are writing for.  Write for yourself and not an audience, and the followers will turn up and contribute. Visit other blogs and comment there, become part of the ‘community’
4. What 1 piece of advice would you give to a veteran blogger–someone blogging for more than 3 years?
Consider the purpose of your blog, at the start and now. Keep things fresh and don’t just post for the sake of it.
5. What do you hope visitors to your blog see, take away, feel or learn?
I  hope people see that I am honest and open and that I am true to myself as a woman, and a slave. I hope that people are able to take something away for themselves, but that they recognise that my relationship is not necessarily theirs. 
6. Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best?
I thought that Master’s former slave finding out about my blog and muscling in on my place in the world would be the end of my blog. But actually it had a very different effect on our relationships than I might have imagined. 
Bonus: What was the last experience that made you a stronger person?
The past 2 years have been a massive learning experience – the loss of my dad, my mum’s health problems and subsequent coming to terms with them. But mostly the realisation that I can have my own life with Master which is not dependent on the expectations of other people.
