I’m not sure why I feel so awkward about this. First off, thanks so much for clicking on this page, and by way of an introduction I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
Although this blog is brand new, I’ve been blogging for what feels like forever. I started back in 2006 with a terrible clunky and ranty random thing that I called a blog. I’m totally kicking myself for not keeping up with it/starting a YouTube channel as I really wanted to, as I could be a bloody millionaire by now, with a mansion and shit with my face on it. Stupid past Beth.
Anyway, I dabbled in the world of blogging for a little while, but it was only back in 2013 that I really GOT it, like I immersed myself in the world of blogging. I started in beauty and lifestyle (back then it wasn’t that big yet), and I actually did alright, I worked with some awesome brands, got shortlisted for some awards and met some awesome people. These aren’t lame humble brags by the way, I’m just filling you in, bear with me.
Although I loved it, I did a bit of the Youtubes too, I just wasn’t feeling it. It didn’t feel like me, it felt like I was making content purely for the sake of it. Making content that I thought people would want to read, not that I wanted to make.
So I quit. Well, that’s pretty dramatic, I didn’t go I QUIT, I just slowly faded away, out of the blogosphere. If you follow me on social media, you may be aware that I do run The Olive Fox, a magazine focusing on helping people become healthy and happy which I LOVE, but something felt like it was missing.
I was missing.
So, here we are.
I’m giving blogging in my own space another crack. It may work out, it may not, who knows, but I’ve got to try, and I really want this space to be something different than anything I’ve done before. A place to encourage others, share knowledge, help people when they need it and spread a bit of positivity where I can. Life’s not perfect, I’m not perfect, but surely we’re all here for some reason, and I’m hoping that mine is doing this.
Stick around a while, leave me a comment below introducing yourself, I’d love to check out your sites too!
