This page is where I will keep links to articles, videos, images etc that may or may not be useful…

Note 5th Feb: Adding links to my blog hasn’t been working very well, if I am honest. If I’m on my phone or, for whatever reason, I am unable to log into my blog, I’m not able to save them here. Instead, I have either bookmarked places on my browsers or have emailed them to myself. This is simply too disorganised to be useful. As of the 5th of February, I’ve downloaded two different bookmarking apps that were recommended in a friend’s newsletterMyMind and – I am hoping that these help with the organisation of online resources.
