And welcome to my first ever blog! You’ll have to bear with me, I’m usually horrible at introductions. At least writing an intro is easier than spontaneously improvising an introduction to someone new in person. But welcome. Pull up a chair, grab a cup of tea and and couple of biscuits and make yourself at home because I’m about to tell you a little about me and my new adventure of blog writing. I hope you enjoy.
A bit about me:
I’ve always admired blog writers. I’ve followed vloggers with blogs such as Zoella, Tanya Burr and Wiishu- albeit, they all fall into a similar category of lifestyle but nevertheless, I continue to wonder to this day how they can make their blog flow so well. I’ve been writing ever since I can remember, whether it be fiction, memoir, travel writing and even poetry- although now I believe that after several years of studying English Literature, poetry should be abolished.
Out of all these forms and genres of writing that I have practised, blog writing has never been one of them. The thought of writing a blog was ever so daunting to me. Would anyone read my work? Would it be worth it? What would I gain out of it? Well I now know the answer to two of those questions. Yes, it would be worth it because it can help build confidence when sharing writing with others- which is probably the third most terrifying thing to me (below fire and deep water). And I will gain writing practise out of it. In September- providing I meet the conditional grades- I am being shipped off to the historical city of Winchester where I will be attending the University there. By writing a blog- maybe not every day but writing often- it will be good practise for the course I will be studying; Creative and Professional Writing. Fancy, huh?
What will this blog be about?
My number one aim for this blog is to not focus around one category, that’s the beauty of lifestyle. I’m hoping to cover topics which could possibly help other people who may being going through a similar thing, to offer advice, reviews, or just to simply write about a topic I’m interested in. There will be all sorts to write about and I can’t wait to get started!
How frequently will I update?
I’ll try to update quite frequently and consistently; at least once or twice a week? Depends what happens during my week and how exciting it is to write about.
That’s about it! Short and sweet for an introduction to a new beginning. I hope this blog can help others or at least be interesting to read.
And for the first time ever, thank you for reading.
