Forever Amber

is creating Books and blog posts
When my husband, Terry, was diagnosed with kidney failure, I quit my job and started a blog: because life’s just too short not to follow your dreams, and I had apparently always dreamt of getting paid to write about my life on the internet*. I even wrote a book about it.

Over a decade later, Forever Amber now mostly documents my adventures as mum to one-year-old Max, our family travels, and other lifestyle-based content. It's been ranked amongst the top lifestyle and parenting blogs in the UK (Vuelio, HIBS100Feeburner), and has a dedicated following, both on the blog itself, and on social media.

I’ve been described as a fashion blogger, a mummy blogger, a lifestyle blogger, and “a total drama queen,” (That was my husband, btw…). Mostly, though, I’m a storyteller – and here on Patreon, I'm sharing some of the stories I've never told before. These are the slightly more personal, possibly-controversial, more in-depth stories that I've always hesitated to post on the blog itself, and they're available exclusively to all Patreon subscribers. For those who subscribe to tier 2 (The Book Reader), meanwhile, I'll also be publishing one chapter per month of my current work-in-progress: an autobiography loosely based around my husband's kidney transplant, but also covering themes of childhood, identity, and growing up. 

Finally, I'll also be offering one-to-one blog advice, with subscribers to my top tier being able to ask one blog-related question per month, which I'll answer by looking at their blog, and providing tailored advice, drawn from my 10+ years of professional blogging. 

Whichever tier you choose to subscribe to, your support will help keep my blog, ForeverAmber.co.uk online, and allow me to continue to create free content for my readers there: every penny helps, so thank in advance for reading!
Tiers
The Blog Reader
$2 or more per month

What you get:


• My eternal gratitude.


• Access to a monthly secret blog post, plus access to the archive of previously published content.


 • Random, shorter updates throughout the month, including photos, the occasional video, polls and more: an honest, unfiltered look behind-the-scenes of full-time blogging.

The Book Reader
$5 or more per month

What you get:

• Slightly more  gratitude.

•  Everything included in 'The Blog Reader' tier, plus...


• Access to one chapter per month of my autobiography-in-progress, 'Unexpected Item in the Bagging Area': a story of childhood, identity and, er, kidney failure. First chapter coming September 2019.

The Aspiring Influencer / Blogger
$15 or more per month

Everything in tiers 1 and 2, plus personalised blogging advice, in the form of one question per month which I will answer, complete with suggestions tailored to your blog. 


(Please note, I can only answer specific, non-technical questions, rather than general requests for 'tips', or tech support. So, my aim here is to help you grow your blog, rather than to tweak your design or fix technical issues.)


This is a special introductory offer, which is currently limited to 10 patrons per month.
