God, it feels weird typing that after so long- and it has seriously been too long. That being said I wanted to give you all a bit of a life update, tell you where I’ve been and what’s been going on, and why I’m finally ready to get back into blogging.
First off I want to apologise, because to put it quite simply I’ve been a bad blogger. Lots has been going on, I hit a major creative block and so my blogging and youtube channel took a back seat. It started when I finished uni for the summer and I felt *so* motivated to blog and film regularly- I was ready to bounce back into blogging where I had taken a break for my exams, and I was full of ideas. And to be fair, at least on the youtube side of things, it was all going well. Until I got my exam results.
This is something that I addressed on Twitter but if you missed that thread, I basically failed two of my exams in spite of the hours of hard work and effort, and my stress levels jumped right back up as my books came out again and revision re- started. I was mentally exhausted and feeling completely negative about life, and to be frank with you it was utter shite.
But looking back on it now I realised that failing those two exams was in actuality the best thing that has ever happened to me; I spent my entire second year of uni cancelling plans, refusing opportunities and living a downright boring life because uni was my everything. And I still failed. So what was the point? It was a year wasted and after a couple of weeks feeling crappy, I started to learn how to balance work and play as I began to live again, seeing friends, making the most of every opportunity and amazingly I passed both resits and had a boss summer. Then it was back to uni and getting back into the swing with new modules and a new timetable.
The whole exam situation isn’t the only reason I’ve been absent. I look at this blog now and it’s not something I’m proud of. I don’t like the posts I’m writing and whilst I still want to do product reviews I want this to be more than just that. I want to write about current social issues, about lifestyle, food, about living in Liverpool. But I had no idea how to get there. Until now.
By the time you’re reading this post, all of my other posts will be in the archive category of the blog so you can still read them, but I am 100% ready for a fresh start. There will be product and event reviews, posts about current events and posts about life in Liverpool. My aim is to publish a blog post every other week, and a video every other week so that there’s a nice balance of content.
I know that this post has been long and a bit rambling but I felt I owed it to you all to explain whats been happening. I want to thank you for the support on social media (which I have managed to post on consistently!) and I hope that you’ll give this new blog a chance and that you’ll enjoy it!
Thank you so much for reading
