Long time no see!
I haven’t written a blog post in so long – coming up to two years in fact – and it didn’t feel right to just get back into blogging without first re-introducing myself!
Hi, I’m Alex. I’m a 21 year old history graduate, currently working full time in sales and marketing, ready to start blogging again!
I started this blog back in 2017 during the break between my first and second year of university. I was bored and feeling a bit lost whilst working full time over the summer – a complete shift from the pace of uni life – and I craved a creative outlet. I tried my hardest to keep going when I returned to uni, posting on and off throughout my second year and a little over the next summer, but the demands of university stole all my attention. Essays weren’t going to write themselves and research for a dissertation takes A LOT of time, so unfortunately my blog took a back seat. (An understatement; it was completely neglected.)
I wrote the essays and researched for the dissertation, and I graduated with a first class History degree and had a full time job in sales and marketing lined up! Since then, I’ve been adjusting to working life and a few other life changes, but now I’m ready to get back to my blog!
Just like before I took my little hiatus, I don’t like to keep to one ‘niche’. I love lifestyle, beauty, books, food, travel… the list goes on! Expect a variety of posts, and probably a few rambles here and there!
I’m so excited to be writing again and I have a lot of ideas lined up. I’m going to be writing as and when I can, and I can’t wait to get started.
Now I’ve re-introduced myself, I feel SO ready to get back into blogging!
What kinds of blogs do you like to read? Do you like a bit of everything, like me, or do you prefer a very focused blog?
