Well, last week was hectic to say the least.
Not only is it one of my busiest times a freelancer- the Northern Lincolnshire Business Awards entries deadline is coming up, if you need help speak to me quickly! – but on Monday, I was contacted by the one and only Buzzfeed to write a post all about Grimsby!
Buzzfeed wanted an appreciation post about the town because it is an area that hasn’t been covered on the site before, so of course I was more than happy to put pen to paper and get started. After some late night thinking sessions (and not being able to sleep due to pure excitement!), the list started to come together, and on Friday, the final post was published.

As soon as the link was live, I shared the post on Facebook and Twitter. I have had some wonderful messages and I can’t even count how many times it has been shared by people on Facebook and Twitter, so I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to everybody who has taken the time to read it and get it out there.
I am so proud to have been asked to write about my hometown in such a positive light, and I am excited to now be an official Buzzfeed Contributor!
PS. The Grimsby Telegraph have reported on it too, which you can read here. Thanks Telegraph!
PPS. I have written a second article! ‘21 Words that have a Different Meaning in Lincolnshire‘. This one is a little more tongue in cheek, but I had a lot of fun writing it. I hope you all enjoy it.
