The Irish Independent

In November 2015 I was absolutely thrilled to have one of my posts published by The Irish Independent on their digital platform of It was some of the first national media that The MOD’s Blog received. In this post I spoke about “My Happy Place” and it was part of The Irish Independent – Life campaign called #MindYourself. I was one of many bloggers who had the opportunity to share with the wider community what we considered our Happy Place. Read the full article here!

The support and positive comments I received were phenomenal. I can’t thank you all enough for motivating me every day to continue blogging. Knowing that people enjoy it makes it worth every hour of time I devote to it. Thank you!

The Blog Awards Ireland

In September 2015, The MOD’s Blog was Longlisted for an Blog Award Ireland in the categories of Lifestyle and Entertainment. I was absolutely thrilled to have been considered for the list as my blog hadn’t even been a year live. It didn’t make the shortlist but hopefully it will get that little bit further in 2016! There were so many fantastic blogs I can’t even imagine how the judges manage to shortlist and select the winners.
