This morning, I was very surprised when I found out from Timehop that it’s been a whole entire year since I started writing my little blog. So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY WHAT’S THE STORI!
When I first started my blog back in 2016 I never expected to be the next Zoella or Megan Ellaby, it was simply a place for me to have a creative outlet, something that I had been craving for two years since leaving university.
Writing is something that I’ve always loved, even if it’s just scribbling a list down or using those 140 characters on Twitter, heck I even enjoyed writing my dissertation! My blog was a way that I could incorporate my passion for writing back into my life and in general a way of extending that limited Twitter character count.
I’ve mentioned Flipside Radio quite a lot in my blogs, rewind back to last year when they were advertising for a blogger and I thought to myself “What have I got to lose?” and sent them an email. From presenting I have met some really amazing people along the way, and I am so grateful to Dom from Soundsphere Magazine and Angela from We Are Chester for giving me the opportunity to do some writing for them!
I don’t know what the next year holds, but I reckon a re-branding is definitely due, although I really do love my feature picture of me attempting to look like a studious Theology student.
I haven’t hit a million followers (yet obviously…), but I am so so thankful for everyone who has taken the time to read my little ramblings over the past year, and tolerated my pollution on social media of sharing posts. You’re all fab.
