My First Blog Post

Omg I’ve actually done it, after YEARS of procrastination and putting off creating a blog I’ve finally done it *applauds myself for actually doing something productive with my life*.

So yes what you’re reading right now is my first ever blog post….if you couldn’t tell that already. And as you can probably tell, I’m not really the type to be all lovey-dovey and happy in my writing, like “(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ heyyyy my lovelies!!! xoxoxxox what a time to be alive ✧・゚: *✧・゚:* ” nah nah, I dont even puts Xx’s in texts let alone write like that. This blog will be straight to the point, easy reading, no fancy English involved (and I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a few spelling errors to come too…)

So who are you?

…good question… who tf am I? (starts having an existential crisis) Nah in all seriousness, I’m just a simple 22 year old, living in Essex who wants to share my life and advice with my followers.

In my spare time, I like to go to gym, yoga classes, the OCCASIONAL run (dw I’m not that much of a fitness freak) and watch my fave TV shows. Top favourite being GAME OF THRONES which I’m absolutely obsessed with (probably a few posts about that coming soon lol) and Kit Harrington, who plays Jon Snow (duh), is my BAE. Now when it comes to films, I love simple animated films, SHREK being my favourite (not including the 4th one, what even was that?) and My Neighbour Totoro. I do, however, like the Star Wars films, all thanks to my boyfriend who forced me to watch it the first time going round his!

What Made You Want To Create a Blog?

I’ve always been quite a creative person. Growing up in my early teens I 100% was one of them weridos making video stars music videos after school instead of doing homework (yes I also uploaded them to YouTube and yes, they’re still out there). The only subject I ever really enjoyed was drama and the only time I did well in English lessons was during creative writing tasks. One of my biggest passions throughout school was musical theatre, which I studied for 4 years and even gained a scholarship at a theatre school. Soooo why didn’t I pursue drama/musical theatre? As much as I loved, and still do love musical theatre, I just could not see myself going into a career on stage.

I was, however, very interested in media. In college I started studying media and even had my own weekly radio show. A few years after school I got myself a job in marketing (uh oh) since I was pretty good at I.T and spent my whole life on social media.

Now here’s a little life advice from my past mistake: ALWAYS read the job description PROPERLY, which something I didn’t do.

I just saw “digital marketing” which then I fully assumed “omg imma be doing social media posts all day and writing blogs and ahhh” haha nope xo Instead I worked as a SEO executive, sounds fancy af don’t get me wrong but my goD was it boring. I cannot sit at a desk all day sending email after email after emaIL reaching out to 1000s of webmasters everyday to ask for links, just to get rude responses for doing my job. BUT every cloud n’ all, I did learn a lot about managing website and good SEO.

SO what do you do when you have creative writing, a quirky personality, I.T and marketing skills and a few thousand followers?

*°:⋆ₓₒ you write a blog  ₓₒ⋆:°*

AND SO, that brings me to here and now. Lets just see how it goes yeah? See you on the blog….
