For those of you visiting or new to my blog, I hope this page helps you get an idea of what sort of content you can expect in these blogosphere parts. Below you can find quick links to series of posts I’ve had (some are ongoing, others were for a specific period of time), some of the ‘top posts’ and guest posts I’ve written for other blogs.

Frequently Read Posts

Confessions of an Emetophobic - probably one of the things I’m most well known for is that I have emetophobia. After one of my ridiculous freak out moments, I wrote this post about the bizarre things I do because of emetophobia basically to laugh at myself. I never dreamed that it would become my most searched for, most commented on post that has become like an online ‘Emetophobics Anonymous’ meeting!

The New Guide Promise - during a media furore over Girlguiding UK ‘taking God out the promise’ I shared about why I love the new UK Guiding promise and my interpretation of what the promise means. (For this and other posts on my experiences in Girlguiding please do hop over to The Girlguiding Life).

History was made today - this post generated the greatest amount of views on my blog in a single day, as I shared why I wasn’t surprised that our British men made history by winning the UK’s first gymnastics team medal in a century at London 2012.

A letter to my 16 year old self - a post that meant a lot to me, as writing this to the ‘me’ in the year before I got pregnant. My 16th year is one I think I’ll always remember very vividly.

The Giant Stuffed Koala - the story behind the picture that becomes my avatar every year on Australia Day.

Back to (honey) blonde - My friend Ruth had just started her business JustHair, and helped me go back to my old hair colour. Otherwise known as they day I stopped being ‘Brunette Koala’. :)

Quote of the Week 11 – Some thoughts on making a difference when there is so much suffering in this world.

Be yourself no matter what the world tells you to be & Quote of the Week 22- These are two of the most read posts with my quote reflections, sharing some of my favourite quotes and my personal struggles with being a Christian engaging in western society.

Twas three nights before Christmas - a dare that started from my American friends commenting on my accent after I posted a demo video of how to put a duvet cover for my online friend, Brandi turned into an international reading of ‘The Night Before Christmas’ poem/story.

Healing - another Sunday Scribbling that got much discussion going.

More than friends - some thoughts on authentic friendships that my friend and I mulled over while making (& eating) pancakes turned into a hot topic.

Wow. Are those nails real? - a post about my first speaking engagement where I was asked to share about my ‘Sophie story’ and how I ended up working in my current job.

Blog Series

Australia Journal - the beginnings of my blogging which began when I left Aberdeen and spent a month in Australia before coming back to Edinburgh to a lot of unknowns…

Community Blog Party – my first ‘Blog party’ on Learning from Sophie, where online friends old and new shared thoughts on ‘community’ in September 2011.

24 days of Christmas - my second ‘Blog Party’ where online and offline friends shared their Christmas & Hogmanay related thoughts,  experiences, poetry, prose and recipes from December to ‘twelfth night’. :)

BK Recipes – For those of you not in the know, ‘BK’ stands for ‘BrunetteKoala’ which was my penname, and username for a long time when I first began blogging. Anyway, as part of my ‘One Word 2011′ I wanted to get better at trying new recipes, and a collection of my favourite recipes can be found on this blog. Cake features quite a lot.

Causes I support - Working for a charity, I also support a lot of charities that I really believe in however I can. These posts explain what these charities do, and why I have chosen to support them.

  1. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own
    blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
