When did you start your website?

2016. I’m very much considered a newbie in the blogosphere!

Why did you choose the name you did?

Originally my blog was named ‘liv-and-phea’ which was named after my girls Olivia and Sofiya. I decided to change it as nobody could pronounce it. At the time it was mainly a family / Medical blog where I wrote about my daughter Olivia and her medical conditions. I changed the name to The Blossom Edit in May 2017 when I added lifestyle.

Why did you start blogging?

I decided to set up my blog to raise awareness for Periventricular Leukomalacia which is a neurological disorder. Soon Mental health &wellness  were added into the mix as not long afterwards I was diagnosed with PND. I always say that if one person benefits from my writing I’ll be happy!

What is Periventricular Leukomalacia?

PVL is a form of white matter brain injury, charactizered by the necrosis (death) of white matter. Premature babies are at the greatest risk of the disorder. The exact cause is unkown however it is thought to be caused by lack of oxygen. For more detailed info see here.
