1000

Yesterday, my blog reached 1000 views.


I never started this blog for the views, I started it because I love writing.

I have always loved writing and using my imagination. Creating things so unique most people would be bewildered, taken aback, impressed maybe. Since I was a little girl, I was obsessed with stories and imaginary games, allowing that inner creativity to escape and flow in all directions. I just wanted to be free, come up with these ideas and just run wild. 



I can remember in primary school, at the age of 10 or 11, we attended this after school club. It was at a rugby ground, and we did all sorts of activities, and during our time there we had to create a book. A book about the ground and our experiences. One of the things we also had to include in it was an interview with a rugby player called David McGregor. I remember getting so excited about this. The prospect of interviewing and writing a report. That's what I wanted to do, from that moment on, write about anything, to please anyone. 

Just like David McGregor said - he started rugby because of his past love for it, and that's what I have done, started a blog because of my love for writing.

When I was also 11, I wrote an article about McDonald's. One day I just felt inspired - and went for it, and in the end it was published in the Rotherham advertiser. The thrill of being in a newspaper, having my own article in that black font that everyone longs for, it made me so happy. Even though it was just our local paper, the Rotherham advertiser, I truly felt as if I had achieved something huge, and it was the start of more to come. I'm pretty sure I have mentioned this but in case I haven't, my goal in life is to become a journalist, so that is why this meant so much to me. My mum as the physical copy but here is the digital one.


Now I am going to share something I haven't before. As you may of noticed, I added a section into my blog referring to 'sweet escape'. One of my all time favourite songs is 'The sweet escape' by Gwen Stefani. I have loved this song since I was 6, when it came out. I just heard it and became obsessed. I had the single and would listen to it on repeat. In the song it says 'If I could escape and recreate a place that's my own world'. I think these lyrics link so well with my blog. They talk about creating somewhere that you can escape to, that's yours. And that is exactly what my blog is for me, a place I can go to, and say whatever I like, and not feel sad or resentful or any negative feelings, and just relax and share my favourite things or emotions with my lovely readers.

Also my blog is 'my own world' after all. a place I can go and spill my feelings on what ever topic I desire - whether that be my mental health problems or what lipstick I am loving.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Thank you so much for 1000 views. It may be small or insignificant for some people, but it means so much to me.

Bye for now,
