A Reintroduction

01 May 2018


Hello!

I feel like I've made a few of these posts in the past. Normally I write them when I've taken a break from blogging for a little while and this is no different.

So, hello there. My name is Gail. I'm 24 years old and I live in Scotland. I began this blog in 2014, and began using it more, and really began to get invested, in December 2015. The blog began as I watched my friend, hannah's, blog grow and grow. Her blog was, and remains a fashion blog, and so I tried my hardest to do the same. I'm not a fashion blogger.

Then I experimented a little with beauty posts. I wrote about facemasks and bathbombs, I became a lushie. But I never really knew what I was talking about, that was, until I began a travel and tourism course. After that, I decided that I wanted to be able to write about things from a tourism perspective. Reviews, trips, experiences, and I did that. I have tabs you can read all about my travels, languages, airline reviews, restaurant reviews and nerdy things. I love writing them so much, especially the travel/tourism reviews. (I write about hotels, too.)

Over the last while, however... I've no been that happy with my blog. I don't know where I'm taking it. I want to be a travel blog but I very rarely travel, then I'm not good at fashion blogs, or makeup blogs and don't even get me started trying to do home ware. I'm at a loss, and the thing I'm most passionate about is Bill and Ted, which isn't something that a lot of people really know about so it doesn't get the readership it deserves. My other passion, language, is in the same boat. I'm not very good at time management so trying to study a second/third language isn't something I get to write about often enough. So. I took a break from blogging.

I told myself I'd return in May, and so here I am, but I'm going to go back to blogging once a week in order to help ease myself back into a routine and find my feet once more. It also eases my stress of working, blogging and trying to cope with my mental health issues. It's something that's in my best interests, and it's a compromise for my blog.
about my experiences with recycling, or with the ocean, to try and do some good in this world, and to talk as much as I can about positivity because writing positive posts does wonders for my own mental health!

So, that's why I've been absent. That's my reintroduction, I want to thank you for staying on this journey with me so far and I hope to see you again in the future.

Until next time, be excellent to each other.
