Hi Everyone! Welcome to my very first post, here on Chronically Inspired Life! I wanted to give you a brief rundown on what you can expect from Chronically Inspired Life, how I came up with the name and also a little bit about me too. Also, I would love some feedback from you all on what you think of the layouts and theme – it’s always very welcomed and appreciated!
I’ll let you all in on a little secret before I begin: this is actually my second blog. I’ve been running Living with JHS for little over a year now and it’s all about chronic illness. I set up Chronically Inspired Life so that I could talk about the things I love in more detail. This leaves Living with JHS focused solely on chronic illness, raising awareness and supporting others. If you would like to check out Living with JHS, you can do so here.
The Name: Chronically Inspired Life
Chronically: this derived from two places. The first is from the chronic illness I suffer from, to make the name more personal to me. Every blog needs a personal touch. The second is from the definition itself – I am always being inspired by the things I love to do.
Inspired: again, to me, there are two meanings to this and the reason I chose it. The first, as explained above, is because I’m always being inspired by the things I love to do. I want to take this inspiration and inspire and help others. The second reason is because these things, and the people I’m closest to, inspire me to be more than just my chronic illness everyday.
Life: everything I’m talking about relates to life in some way, so this just seemed to make sense!
What do you think about my name choice?
What to Expect
On Chronically Inspired Life, I will be discussing the following topics:
You’ll hear, well read, about experiences, advice & tips, favourites, reviews, events and anything else that may relate to these topics. I don’t claim to be an expert about any of these topics, but I do enjoy partaking and want to share this enjoyment with you all in the hope that it might inspire you!
Excluding this week, my start-up weekend, I will be posting weekly until May, where it will become bi-weekly (twice a week) at a minimum. I’ll explain why below. I’m really looking forward to start sharing with you all, as I’ve grown a list of proposed posts over the past few months.
So, here’s where it gets interesting – bio’s about myself have never really been my thing but we’ll give it ago!
My name is Abbie Chandler, 20 years old, originally from Northumberland. I am currently in the final year of York St John University, studying Accounting & Finance, and about 7 weeks away from finishing uni forever! This is the reason why, until May, I will only be posting once a week – I got that dissertation stress going on (*breathe* not long left *breath*).
As briefly explained further up, I’ve been blogging for little over a year and I originally started to help others suffering from chronic illnesses and conditions similar to mine – I suffer with something called Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, or also known as Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain, along with other undiagnosed (for now) problems. If you would like to know any more about these conditions, you can check out Living with JHS.
Of course, if you would like to know anything else, then you can contact me using the contact form and my social media links, which can be found here.
Well, that’s it. I’m really excited to start sharing my content with you and, hopefully, getting to know you all! If you would like to follow Chronically Inspired Life by email, then you find a subscription form at the very bottom of the page.
Thank you for joining for me on this new blogging journey!
