About Me

DSCF3009

I’m Meg: bookworm, Christian, O.U arts student, wife to Chris and mother to two tiny children (known as Jellybean and The Boy on the blog). I am height-challenged, proud owner of an unruly frizzy mop of red hair and fairly socially awkward.

I’ve been writing for fun since I was a kid: ever since I tapped out my first story on our very cutting edge nineties PC (it was about a magic bracelet that caused a tornado and yes, it was awesome). Writing is my way of decompressing and now I can’t imagine not doing it. I write fiction for funsies (although I’m too scared to show anyone.)

I started a blog, From a Whisper to a Roar, back in 2012, where I discovered linkies and social media and SEO and all sorts of other stuff. I also started a very unhelpful comparison game with other bloggers, and started to consider changing my content in order to make money and be ‘successful’. I lost that raw, real writing that people connected with, the writing that inspired me to work harder.

Luckily I gave myself a kick up the bum and here we are: a new blog, and writing I feel truly passionate about: here you can find book reviews, creative writing, the study of literature, and faith, women’s rights and motherhood. My pictures might not be the best and my blog might not be the shiniest, but I’m always, always honest. Cross-my-heart-and-hope-to-die.

I also blog for the excellent, friendly, funny website and Facebook community The Motherload.

Come and talk to me! Seriously: do. You can find me on my Facebook page, or Twitter, where I sporadically post whenever I feel guilty about it, or you can find nice looking books and cutesy kid pics on my Instagram. You can check out what I’m reading on my Goodreads account.

You can email me at meganbidmead@gmail.com.

And if you’re a blogger or writer looking for a collaborator, or looking to have your work hosted on other blogs (particularly to do with writing, Christianity, feminism, or raising little kids), please email me, I’m keen to link up with other writers. 🙂
