Well hello there friends, it’s been a while. I guess I should start by apologizing/ explaining my year long hiatus. I started this blog towards the start of last year along with my bookstagram @paperbackandflickchick in the hopes of sharing and expressing my love of all things books, movies and TV shows. For a while I had the time and passion to put into and create for both of these hobbies for myself. Unfortunately my life got pretty hectic and I went through what I feel was tremendous change and growth as a person. I got engaged, went through my last semester of university wondering if I was going to graduate and what I was going to do with my adult life. I passed my exams graduated from uni and got my first full time job in my chosen field. My partner and I brought our first home together and although I made some new friends I lost many along the way.
I guess through all of this I put my hobbies, passion and creativity on the back burner until I no longer felt the urge to create for either of these media and eventually stopped all together. So thank you to those of you who stuck around through my silence and inactivity. It really does mean a lot. To any new followers, welcome! Thank you for taking the time to look into my blog and chucking me a follow despite the lack of activity. You have come at a good time, because guess what? I’m back baby and I have found my passion for this again and I hope things are about to get a lot more active and interesting around here.
I have been in my new job now for over half a year and settled into my house for a couple of months now. A few months ago I found myself feeling bored and restless with no creative outlet. Around about this time I decided to start up my bookstagram again and have posted every day for a couple of months straight now. It is one of the greatest decisions I have made recently. I absolutely love it! I have come across so many great new inspirational and amazing accounts. And through this I have started to meet some truly awesome like-minded people. These past couple of weeks I have felt a pull towards blogging and wanting to be able to write more about the things I am reading and watching, loving and hating at the moment. So I have decided to listen to what my intuition and soul are telling me and to start writing and creating more content for here. Basically inflicting you unsuspecting people with my thought opinions and reviews.
My goals for this blog are to, like bookstagram find like-minded people creating great content and improve my own skills in this thing called blogging. Remember I have very little experience and am basically a beginner with so much to learn. My writing style is very in the moment, open honest and full of emotion. I don’t really plan what I am going to write. I get an idea in my head or get the urge to write about a particular book or movie and just kind of let the words spill out onto the page. At least this way you can always count on the fact that my reviews are 100% my own personal honest views and opinions. I plan to post here at least a couple of times per month and whenever the creative urge demands it. Once again thank you for sticking around I hope you enjoy this journey and experience as much as I do. Speak to you again soon.
