Hello and Happy Wednesday! Welcome to my first official blog post.
I’m delighted to have finally begun my venture into the world of blogging or the ‘blogosphere’ as some may call it. I’ve been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now but between university, work, exams and a fear of others judging me, I continuously pushed the thought to the back of my mind.
I’d like to consider myself to be a creative person, having grown up with a love for arts and crafts as well as singing and playing the guitar. However, I did not discover my love for writing until I started an arts degree in university in which English literature was one of my main subjects. While others despised writing essays and assignments, I secretly loved the thoughts of sitting down to discuss my opinions and views on the work of the greats.
I have never been much of a socialite or party goer both at university or at home so whilst my peers were in the pub downing a drink or two, I would be curled up in bed with a cosy blanket, a cup of tea and my laptop, reading blog posts and watching youtubers. I always wanted to start a blog but my dreams were constantly shot down by shyness and fear of what others would think of me.
This year I have taken an interest in studying a different course from the one I initially pursued and luckily for me having a creative outlet such as blogging, writing for journals or creative writing is a requirement in order to receive a place. Therefore, this is what gave me the push that I needed to finally dive into the sea of bloggers that are ever so present on the internet.
So here I am writing this blog post, still fearful of the haters, still unsure of what exactly this space will come to be but one thing that is for certain is my ongoing passion for all things beauty, health and well being, and pop culture related.
I hope that the content that I create will somehow be of interest and offer some help to anybody reading this.
I’ll being seeing you guys real soon!
