I’m not really sure how to start this post for fear of it turning into some sort of self-centred acceptance speech but…
“I’d like to thank my Mum, my Dad, my brother, my boyfriend, my dog Max, my amazing friend Eve (she totally put me up to this)….”
Nah, only joking. But I do have to say thank you to Fleur for posting one of my rambles on her insanely famous blog (Fleur De Force) and of course thank you all for reading.
I started out this blog because I can’t really control myself. I’m like the Cookie Monster of the writing world, you show me a keyboard or a pen and I’m on it like a tramp on chips. I’m TRYING to write a book, but life keeps getting in the way, much to my mother’s annoyance. (She messaged me today asking me to write her a book for Christmas. No pressure Mum. I’ll just whip one out on my lunch break.)
By day, I’m the Group Editor of the most fantastic B2B publishing house. I love my job, but sometimes a girl needs a little outlet for the little things in life and I’m not entirely sure that my period-related, personal trainer-obsessed, frankly insane posts would do the trick with those who see me as a mature journalist. Yes, that would be a bit of a fail wouldn’t it.
The title of this blog seemed pretty apt. I was writing like no one was watching, because I had a small handful of readers (from what my stats showed) and the only subscriber I had was my little brother and I’m not even sure he reads this to be honest.
But today! Crikey! I have followers. People that actually like my writing. That’s…well, that’s bloody brilliant.
Anyway, this is just a quick thank you note for putting a HUGE smile on my face. I really hope you like the blog and if you have any suggestions, let me know.
Next time I write, I know that SOMEONE will be watching, and that, my friends, is pretty amazing.
