About

JoHello, I’m Jo Christy. 

You may also know me by my world famous & afternoon tea loving alter ego; Miss Sue Flay.

I’m a freelance blogger & writer, blog & social media coach, accountability buddy, mentor and creative mastermind living in Cambridge, UK.

You might have a food & drink business, B&B or hotel,  restaurant, spa or be any type of blogger – with over 13 years of experience within the events, hospitality & pop-up supperclub world, I can help in many ways. My coaching, events & workshops will help you build a brand, gain access to potential leads and turn them into new clients.

I can help you to focus on your grand plans for online domination, create ideas that work and teach you to reach an active and engaging audience.

I’m a self-confessed blogging, Instagram & Twitter addict – with lots of other social media vices – I am a 30-something super-blogger who breathes, eats & drinks, reads, even sleeps online. I love connecting with new people on an hourly basis, who knows where an online conversation might take you?

My ultimate goal is to be able to call myself a “Digital Nomad”, earning my pennies as I travel the world. I’m also a huge fan of David Bowie (my bedroom is a shrine to this rebellious god!), Quentin Tarantino films (I can quote “Kill Bill” word for word) and I once tried my hand at Roller Derby – before realising I wasn’t made for skates!

I’m also partial to a Jammie Dodger and can easily be bribed with a pack to dunk in my tea!

How To Start A Blog with Stir Up Media

About Stir Up Media

If you are baffled as to how the world of blogging or social media actually works for a brand/individual or how on earth you even get started with the online universe, you’re in the right place.

Creative and online networking are my passions. As a result, I’ve created an entire alter ego – Miss Sue Flay – with a successful brand behind it and a large online following; trained in afternoon tea etiquette and household management to a Royal standard (my blog geekery); written columns, features and reviews for local & national publications, as well as independently for hotels and luxury brands; made various radio & television appearances over the last few years.

Now, I’ve taken all the lessons I’ve learned from building a successful blog and set up Stir Up Media to help others to do the same: develop blogs (new and existing) & social media platforms, coach, connect and inspire.
