Hi. Hello. Hi.

I'm Louise. Often known as LouJo, sometimes Lou (if I like you), but never Jonesy or LouLou. I'm 24 and crying into my bank account in SE London.

I'm an in-house writer for The Mix, a charity supporting under 25s in the UK, and a freelance writer/editor/proofreader/Ijustreallylikewordsok. My most recent freelance work includes writing for betty, a badass platform for teenage girls, and blogging and editing at Rose & Butterfly, the brainchild of no-bullshit life coach Helen Williams.

If you think we could work together, please do get in touch! I love emails. Live for them.

I'm also a runner. I started running for my mental health two years ago and now I can't stop. It's ridiculous, I know. I'm a serial parkrunner and ran the London Marathon 2017 as a lead runner for Heads Together, the mental health campaign created by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge & Prince Harry. It's been a whirlwind.

This blog has been going since the dark ages of 2009. I was 16 years old and babbling away with no sense of direction. It's had many faces, many purposes, and has been at the hands of many different Louises as I slipped from teenager to grown-up (ish). I won a national blogging award with Channel 4 News in 2010, and was asked to be an Olympic torchbearer for London 2012. I was clearly doing something right.

But then I had a breakdown.

This blog has seen a lot.

Now? I write about mental health, running, and am attempting to document my travelling adventures too. I want to explore Europe, so come along with me?

If you'd like to get in touch for any blog, writing, or event opportunities, please email me! I'd love to hear from you: louiseemilyjones@gmail.com

Anyway, I'm probably just going to stare at this page and change it multiple times, because even I don't know enough about me.
