The Typecast blog has been live since July 2009 and I have been blogging and using online forums and newsgroups since 2002.  I am studying for a Social Science degree with the Open University and I lead a running group in which is part of the 5K GroupRun programme in Blackburn. I also enjoy writing and crafting to wind down. I used to tap dance but I kept falling into the sink.

Please contact me for more details about writing and publishing features, reviews and commercial content. You may also like to have a look at my content policies.  I also write a geek/tech blog called Geekalicious.  I have a prominent presence within social media platforms, especially on Twitter when you can often find me spending my Friday nights hosting the 'Friday Twiz'!  I also hosted a radio panel show on Preston FM called The Big Cheese.

I created a guest-posting series called "Cancer - Your Story" which tried to break the taboos regarding cancer.  I am also one of the founders and organisers of the campaign "Blognonymous".  I have contributed material to well known websites and blogzines such as The Huffington Post,  When I Was A Kid, and The High Tea Cast.  I have had articles featured on various blogs in the parenting and writing communities and wrote for the national publication, Flying Start Magazine. This blog is consistently in the Top 20 Teads Lifestyle and Parenting Blogs and I have been described as influential by numerous well-known brands and sources such as Mumsnet, NetmumsCision and Voucher Codes
