My First Post
Updated: Oct 20, 2018
I’m not going to lie, I don’t know how to start this off. Hello I guess? That’s how people communicate right?
Welcome to my first blog post, I hope you find your stay comfortable and fun-filled. Jut a little bit about me; my name is Cerys (pronounced ke-ris, for those of you wondering). I'm 19 and I'm a first year psychology student in Birmingham. Now introductions are out of the way, let’s get started with why I decided to begin writing…
I’m a bit of a serial hobbyist – which I have since written a post about, which you can read here– and I’ve dipped my toe into blogging before, about 3 times. I think the first time all I posted about was One Direction (for about 2 weeks at the age of 13), and the other two times I designed the blog and never posted. Well, this time I’m going to post! Hopefully.
I know a few girls who create videos for Youtube. I also used to do this but had to pack it in due to illness and then school commitments. I miss making videos and being apart of that community. I made a number of friends in the year or so that I did it for and loved making the videos and helping them with theirs. Watching the videos these girls upload has recently inspired me to get back into making videos myself.
However, I only managed to come up with two video ideas that I really loved the idea of. And that’s not a great number for consistent uploads really. I’m not a makeup guru, and I don’t own a lot of makeup anyway so that’s those out of the window. I’ve not got oodles of money, so hauls aren’t an option. I’ve not got any hidden musical or artistic talents, nor do I have the opportunity to travel all the time. So, I came to a bit of a wall.
But then I thought, “well those two video ideas could still work in blog form” and suddenly got excited again. I managed to put a list together of more blog post ideas, so I thought, you know what, let’s go for it! I re-designed my last blog (since the last time I’d logged in I was 16), thought of a more interesting name that just my birth name (which took a long time), and now I’m writing my first post. I’m pretty proud that I’ve actually done it to be fair.
The idea is to write about anything and everything that interests me, in the hopes that it might interest some of you as well. And that some people might read. Style, music, travel, recipes, lifestyle, like a big smoosh of everything. A big blog of me. My online creative journal.
I'd like to end by saying thank you for reading my first post! Hopefully you’ll come back and read my others as well. I’m very excited to make this into something I can be proud of.
P.s – Thank you to Chloe, Jess and Esme (if you’re reading this) for inspiring me to start creating and sharing again!x
