The 300th blog post!

Amanda writing her weekly blog at her work desk

I began blogging just before I began my business in September 2014. For some time now, I have blogged once a week, every week on a Monday. Three hundred is quite a lot of Mondays! I’m so grateful to the many readers who have pressed the ‘Follow this Blog’ button – you make it worth my while. Even you loyal readers may not have read every post, however, so here’s a list of posts you might have missed or might like to see again:
