Why I Blog

Recently I’ve had a small influx of people I’d lost touch with start following me on Instagram with a few asking a few questions about what I’m up to blogging wise and it sort of made me step back and have an objective look at my blog. If I wasn’t a blogger – I kind of wandered what I’d think of the whole ‘world’ looking in from the outside. For example – why are there 1 million extra extravagant professional photos of me on my instagram? Do I really hire I a photographer just to help me get great shots of my outfits? Is there really any need for me to include a photo of myself in nearly every blog post, does it have even anything to do with the post itself? What is the actual purpose of this industry – is it just full of a bunch of vain folks trying to hide their self centered-ness under the mask of “look, I’m just trying to show off my outfit, okay?”

With all the above in my head, I thought I’d write up a short piece on why I blog, and why I do what I do…

What was your dream job when you were younger?

I wanted to be an actress. I would spend hours every day learning scripts in my room, reading up on prospective agents online, and practicing my Oscar speech that I was obviously bound to have to give one day. It was written in the stars. Once a week I would take musical theatre classes, and at least twice a year I’d perform on stage with my parents watching in the audience. As you can probably already tell – things didn’t quite work out as expected. I sort of stepped away from that dream after two terrible years of GCSE Drama; instead, I turned my focus to things I knew I was better at – school and being creative. This led me to attending a world class university, opening my own webdesign shop, and eventually led me to where I am now. Right now – I work full time in investment banking, and part time I blog and create everything you see here. A little bit different to the dreams I initially had.
