About Me

Hi I'm Nicky! The creator of Ready To Go! Social Media Graphics and The Organised Blogger.
With nearly 30 years of experience as an Administrator and business owner, I have found my niche after becoming a Blogger in 2016.
 
What led me to start Blogging initially?
I’m going to be very honest here, feeling stressed would be underestimating the way I felt. I hit a breaking point. I was working full time, running a busy family life and home. Feeling stressed, overwhelmed and struggling in every way to do it all and be everything to everyone.
Health issues came at me from everywhere. And let me tell you! That’s a sure sign that things aren’t going well and you’re not in the right situation. The Nicky everyone knew and loved was drifting out in a sea of exhaustion and constantly feeling stressed. With health complications topping it off, I waved the white flag!
So I left the job I loved, for my own health and sanity, which in turn has benefited all those around me tenfold!
I started Spinnin’ Plates as I felt so strongly about wanting to help other women in my position, trying to do it all! It’s tough, right?!
 
My mix of passions has helped mould the path that led me towards starting The Organised Blogger in 2018.
I now love to help Entrepreneurs, Bloggers and small business owners, by creating high-quality visual social media graphics, ready to go! Along with FREE organisational and times saving resources every month and above all, helping to keep their sanity! I have relished the opportunity to share with my Community.

MY LIFE ON A TIMELINE!

1986 Andy and I dated for several years over 30 years ago, when I was 17 and he was 19!

1997 My Son Charlie was born, he is studying Computer Science at Uni.

1999 My daughter Millie was born, she has just finished her Foundation in Art.

00's I used to live a very alternative life winning BIG competitions for a number of years!

2007 Honey our springer spaniel joined our family 11 years ago.  She's a human with fur!

2010 Zac came into my life some years later - hopefully he's going to keep me young!

2014 Andy came back into my life, returning from New Zealand, and we started a new life together.

2016 I started my blogging journey with Spinnin' Plates - helping mum's to find calm in their daily life.

2018 After noticing so many fellow bloggers struggling to do it all and keep their sanity, I wanted to help, so The Organised Blogger was born!

MY TOP FIVE PASSIONS!

01. Photography

Find your passion and pursue it. That’s what I did with my photography!  It's been pulling me all my life and it's taken me until my's to follow this dream. I take my camera wherever I go in my trusty backpack!

 

02. Organisation

I understand this is a hard one for people to understand!  But it's in the genes I'm sure of it!  I love organised, it's my thing!  Anyone that's worked with me would agree!

 

03. Working

I am a self confessed workaholic!  The satisfaction of building a business and watching it grow is incredible.  Throw into the mix that you are lucky enough to do what you love, talk daily about your passions and help others!  It's a win-win!  

 

04. Travel

I travelled lots in my childhood which I'm sure sowed the seeds for adventure and exploring the world.  I have been fortunate enough to visit incredible destinations and there are so many more on my list!

 

05. STATIONARY

I'm completely, totally and utterly obsessed with stationary!  I find it hard not to buy notebooks where ever I shop!  Be it the local supermarket, Paperchase or the lovely John Lewis!  I adore beautiful pens, pencils, cases, inks, paper... you name it, if it's under the stationary category I'm loving it!
