So here we are. If you’re reading this then thank you very much for clicking on this link and welcome to my little corner of the internet. I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a blog for a while now, but it definitely seemed a little daunting taking the first step into the ol’ bloggersphere. For starters, my knowledge on all things websites was (and still is) pretty non-existent. Domains, host sites, widgets and plug ins don’t tend to feature in my vocabulary so figuring this out has been a learning curve… believe me, I’ll be as surprised as you if this old thing is up and running smoothly!
This isn’t going to be as slick as @… (we’ve already established that my tech skills are somewhat lacking) and the photos might not be as on point as megababe @… but you know, I’m cool with that. I love reading blogger’s posts and seeing what they’re up to but I can’t make my blog just like theirs. And that’s not the point. I’ve realised that ultimately you’ve got to do what you want to do, and don’t worry about trying to be as good as X. Someone once said that you shouldn’t spend your time trying to be someone else, because it’s exhausting endlessly trying to be like them, and at the end of the day your version of that person will never be as good. You can only be you. Do what interests you, and don’t worry about trying to copy what everyone else is. At the end of the day, no one cares who you’re not. So I’ve decided to let Beyonce be Beyonce, and I’ma do me.
So this is my little thing. I’m gonna post about things that interest me, from style, beauty, travel #fashun. If I’m honest I don’t really have a set idea yet, but I’ma do me and make me own little space to document the things I get up to. And if that’s something you’re interested in reading about then that’s amazing. And if there’s something that you’ve been thinking of doing, I really hope this is the helpful nudge you need to encourage you to take that first step. You do you hun. And if you’re still reading this- congrats! you’ve made it to the end of my rambling- THANK YOU! Thank you for taking the time to read this, it means a lot to lil’ old me.
see you in the next one.
