As someone who works better under pressure, I put the 'pro' in procrastination. I can Pinterest for hours, brainstorm for days and spend years talking about my elaborate dreams without doing much in the way of making them a reality.
I'm going to hold my hands up and admit that I recently made the most common blogging faux pas out there—I fell off the radar.

Recently, I was lucky enough to sit in on a keynote speech by the lovely Lily Cole. She spoke about many significant things, including the power of literacy and the creation of a gift economy, but one spoke to me above all else.
