About Yesihaveablog

Phoebe Conner, owner of yesihaveablog.com

Hi, I’m Phoebe and yes, I have a blog.



I created this little corner on the internet back in 2012 to keep my passion for writing alive after graduating from university.

Originally captioned ‘yes I have a blog and no, I don’t have a career‘ it has, like me, taken on many guises and grown in many ways.

Throughout it all: world-wandering, career-seeking and wordsmith-ing, I have realised that I have a serious case of determination. Whether that has been the determination to write (post-uni), determination to travel or even determination to improve my own wellbeing; it has been a real driving force for me over the years.

Amongst (many) other things, I’m a Norfolk native, a plant enthusiast and an outdoor wellness advocate. Writing for me is as much about the joy of putting pen to paper as it is curating words. I have notebooks spilling out of my writing desk, stuffed into various backpacks and propping up the pillows on my bed; it is my firm belief that no writer should be without their stationery. Because of this, I can often be found binding my own notebooks with my reconditioned Singer sewing machine and selling my wares in my Etsy shop.

Have a read of my Norfolk Life category for all the best bits of the county I call home and life in the fine city of Norwich.

I live with anxiety and OCD and like to spend time in the great outdoors to help manage my mental health, more on that in my Outdoor Wellness category.

I’ve been transitioning to a lower waste lifestyle since 2018. If you’re interested in plastic free, zero waste and more sustainable living, I share my ups, downs and general thoughts on the matter in my Low Waste Lifestyle category.

A combination of plant spam, outdoor adventures and plastic free chats can be enjoyed over at my yesihaveablog instagram but I’ve also recently created a dedicated account for outdoor wellness (where you can get inspired but also share your own mental health stories if you want to too).

Seek Pin-spiration with me over at Pinterest.

Or Tweet me if you want, I’m sometimes there too.


Other things that are important to note about me: Jurassic Park is my favourite film…ever, I’m struggling to keep my extensive fern collection alive, Margaret Atwood is my hero, SEO is my jam and I really like cats.
