Hi, and welcome to Digital Motherhood!

My name’s Sarah and I’m a Brit currently living in Spain.

I started Digital Motherhood in 2015 when I had a 4 year old daughter just about ready to start school and I was juggling working 30+ hours a week as a Digital Marketing Manager with school runs and general family life.

Back then I blogged about coping with being a working mum, having a child at school, and things we got up to in our time off together.

Fast forward 4 years and we decided that it was time for an adventure , so in the spring of 2019 we left the UK for a new life in here in Spain.

I now live on the Costa Blanca with my husband and our now 8 year old daughter (“Little H”) working as a freelance Social Media Manager.

My blog has changed slightly with our new lifestyle, as I now write more about freelancing rather than working for an employer, but there are still posts about having a child at school and our travels, just now centered around Spain rather than the UK.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, thank you for sticking with me through our our move abroad and the changes this has brought to the blog.

If you’ve landed on my blog for the first time, welcome and I hope you enjoy reading my blog posts and find what you’re looking for.

Feel free to message me if you have any questions about freelancing, moving to Spain, or anything else I have written about here at Digital Motherhood.

    Hi Sarah, just found your blog looking through move to Spain articles. I have the house up for sale and looking forward to moving to Blanca in the murcia region soon. I have so many questions!!! Your posts are from 2019, are you still there? How’s it going?
    How difficult is it getting residency? I’d be buying a house.

      Hi Maxine,
      Yes we are still here, moved over in May 2019.
      Getting residency isn’t too bad, I’d recommend finding a Gestor to help you with the process as it is worth the fee to get them to sort everything for you. You will either need to have a job in Spain, register as self-employed, or have enough money for the whole family to live on.
      If you want to drop me an email it’s sarah@digitalmotherhood.com
      Good luck with the move!
