    My August Blogging Goals

    Welcome,  Too formal? I don’t know but I’m trying to switch it up from the usual ‘ello. Anyway, I’ve never done a post about blogging goals before because I’ve never really had any. The truth is I started blogging on the pretense of having some fun with it which I do. However, I would love to get more engagement with my content. You see, it’s not easy running a blog and I do hate when people say that. It may not be the hardest job in the world but it can take a lot to write all the time when you’re getting little response. That’s why I’ve decided to lay…

    My Egypt Travel Guide

    ‘Ello, In my post ‘My Ultimate Travel Bucket List‘, I mentioned that I was jetting off to Egypt for a week. Since I have returned I thought it would be cool to give some insight into what it’s like to go on holiday to Egypt. There are a few things I cannot give recommendations on: hotels, tour groups and restaurants as I stayed with a friend (Mariam) when I went.

Honestly the flights were really straightforward and I…

    A letter to my younger self

    Hey, So I did a post about a letter to my future self a while back and figured writing one to my younger self would be cool, too. I’m not old at 21, but I’m a different person now to what I was then. I thought it’d be interesting to address those changes… Without further ado, here’s my letter to my younger self: Well, younger me, you were interesting. You were troubled, I guess. It’s not that you were awful at school but you didn’t always play by the rules and you got into trouble a few times. Nothing serious though, so good on you. The one thing you wanted…

    Why did I start a blog?

    Welcome back, You might have noticed that I’ve been sharing some quite personal stories about myself recently – My time on the contraceptive pill, A letter to my future self, etc – so I figured it was time to tell you all why I decided to start a blog. Since I was about 10 years old I have written about anything and everything. From a diary to terrible short stories – all I’ve known is how to write. Writing gives me the opportunity to express myself and show people who I really am. That’s why it made sense to me to start a blog. Now, I’d be telling fibs if…
