There are two types of blogs I love to read; powerful personal development ones, with takeaway messages, and lifestyle and parenting blogs, which celebrate the beautiful chaos of life with a young family.

Bright Side is a mixture of the two. Its anecdotal, personal and warm. It charts my life and heart at time of writing, yet its reflective too, rooted in personal development.  Lets just call it Personal Development with Personality!

Really super happy you visited:-)


“Whenever I’m looking for a dose of sunshine and positivity, I stop by the Bright Side. Yvette’s posts are a beautiful balance of lightness and wisdom; profound without being “heavy.” I’ve recommended the Bright Side to several friends and clients and will continue to do so… Yvette is an inspiration!” (Dr. Brianne Grogan DPT, Founder of Femfusion Fitness)



“Most of us would like to think of ourselves as positive people who try to count their blessings and face each day with a smile.  In reality, however, we all need a helping hand now and then, when our self-confidence takes a knock or simply when the demands of the modern world sap our physical and emotional energy.  For me “The Bright Side of Life” is that helping hand, reaching out to guide me gently back to the path of positivity and reminding me that love, respect, peace and all the other wonderful things that make the world go round start from within.” (Juliet Bailey, writer &  founder of Girl, reading)

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now
    broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!

    Amazing blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that
    I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

    • Yvette says:

      Hi Darrel, Thank you so much for the compliment and I’m honored to offer you some blog tips. Well first off I’d say go for it! There is definitely more to blogging than meets the eye which is why I heartily recommend paying a small fee every year so that you have a hosting company that holds your hand every step of the way. I use Web Hosting Hub and I cannot praise them enough, truly. They have an online support chat so if you have any technical queries they are right there and can help you instantly. A few times, I’ve added a plug-in (ie, the ability for people to Facebook ‘like’ my articles) and lost the whole website! Web Hosting Hub has gotten it back and up and running again for me. They are terrific so I’d suggest starting there. I also watch/ed YouTube videos on all aspects of blogging (how to get more traffic, etc) Marketing is just as important (although not as fun)! as writing material for your blog so try and spend equal amount of time on that, at least initially. I hope this helps!

      Once you have it up and running, its so much easier. I use Picmonkey as a great tool to edit and ‘fancify’ my photos, and also ‘Share Image As’ to get photo quotes. Enjoy your blogging journey! Its a lot of fun, and well worth it.
