About

Hey!

I’m Kirsty, founder and owner of Better Your Blog and HLDNmedia.net

I am a 30-something mother of two (three if you include the husband!) from East Yorkshire in the north of England and for the last 14 years I have been working in the administration department for the MoJ.

My jobs since leaving school have all been office based and around administration.  My roles have included being a Senior Administration Officer, an acting Team Leader, a Sales Office Manager, an implementor of LEAN as well as a Customer Service Liaision Officer!

The last 7 years I have spent running my own businesses, working part time and being a mum but it wasn’t until the summer of 2018 that I decided I just didn’t want to to be in the corporate office environment anymore.

I couldn’t go through another flexible working application and appeal (in total I think I had 3!) trying to justify to someone why I wanted to spend more time with my children instead of in the workplace and how we couldn’t afford to pay every single penny of my wage to a childcare provider.

However, all that said I genuinely wanted to continue doing what I was doing. I loved my job why it took me so long to make the jump but it was no good for my health and mental wellbeing whatsoever.

The fact that I was made to feel guilty for wanting to be there for my children and that no parent should have seek approval to do that, is what pushed me to go self employed full time sooner than I ever though I would.

July 2018 saw me decided to put everything that I have learnt in the last 17 years of office work and self employment and set up my own business/agency! So here I am.. this is me (& my little family!)

Doing what I love, doing what I know and doing what I do best…

After nearly 20 years experience of providing a high quality, professional and efficient support service to those within a corporate environment alongside nearly 80,000 other employees; I can now continue to do what I love but on a more personal 1-to-1 level and directly offer my services to those that need it the most. 

I’m not going to say I’ll never head back into the corporate environment but right now I am loving the flexibility my work gives me and allows me to work whenever and wherever in the world and be there for my family!

WHY CHOOSE ME?

In addition to all of the above, I am also a multi-award nominated blogger and owner of a Trips100 top 10 UK travel vlog of 2018.

The knowledge I have gained throughout my whole working life and the fact I too have turned my blog into a business, allows me now to provide support to you and encourage you to do exactly the same.

Blogging has allowed me to gain an extremely comprehensive knowledge on the designing of WordPress websites, on page SEO as well as basic graphic design (Canva), social media management, diary management & the overall digital marketing of brands.

I have the ability and experience to enhance both a YouTube channel and blogging platforms’ search and discovery potential as well as having extremely extensive knowledge of video editing too.

Given my background of working in the MoJ and the fact I have ran my own businesses for many years; working to deadlines/targets, having a right first time attitude, being responsible for my own time and conscious of the work I produce is something that now just comes natural to me these days.

So, if you do want to work with a conscientious and highly focused, award nominated blogger and senior administrator that will help, guide and support you whilst helping you take your blog or business to the next level then you’ve come to the right place!

Feel free to get in touch for a free 15 minute consultation. All I ask is before we do chat you complete the form found here prior to our call and ensure you’ve read through my FAQ’s.

This helps us both to get prepared for the call as well as allowing me to do little research on your blog/business. It not only lets me know before our call exactly what you are looking to achieve from your blog and provides you with information on fees, payment terms and tons of other stuff we couldn’t possibly cover in just 15 minutes! 🙂
