When I started this blog it was a small project to help me with my UCAS application. At the time I had just finished my application and had applied to all of the universities I wanted to go to (even though I didn’t actually want to go to university!) I had applied to do broadcast journalism, and thought writing a blog would be a good conversation starter at my interviews and a chance to practice my writing skills. Well fast forward 7 years and I’m a uni dropout who barely ever remembers to write a blog post… whoops!.
So, why do I actually write this blog now? I do it for a number of reasons. For starters, it’s a good way for me to offload what’s going through my mind. I find it good therapy and counselling to write a blog post and get all of the inner whirring’s of my brain onto the page and to the re-asses the situation i’m in. I also use it as a personal diary, it just happens to be one that I share with random people. But that’s just me. I’m a sharer, or more like an over-sharer! I wouldn’t say I was a very private person, of course there are some areas of my life that I like to keep private, but there isn’t much in my life that no one knows about so I don’t find it hard sharing things with strangers who read this blog. It’s also a small hobby. Okay, not a very good going, seeing as I barely remember to write a blog post, but if someone was to ask me the (dreaded) question as to what my hobby was, I would say writing a blog.
I started writing this blog before blogging was really even a job. Sometimes I do think, oh wouldn’t that be so cool to be able to write a blog as a living, but I wouldn’t even have a clue on how you would even go about doing that. So I think I’ll just continue to forget this is here and write a post every time I remember!
