Lets just clarify two things right here: yes, I am blonde, and yes, my name is Amy. Quite frankly, it would make for a very awkward blog if I was brunette and called Linda or something, right?
So yes, this is my little space online to share with you pretty much anything and everything I want to share with you all ranging from beauty reviews, fashion posts to lifestyle updates and pretty much everything in between. I am definitely looking to incorporate more topics into my blog and I’m constantly seeking inspiration in my everyday life. I would encourage anyone reading this who does not have a blog and considering beginning one to do so, as you will be surprised how fulfilling it is to bring pen to paper, or more appropriately, your fingers to a keyboard.
So many people ask me “what encouraged you to start up your own blog?” and honestly? I had been reading a variety of different blogs for years before taking the plunge to create my own as I love how passionate and honest bloggers can be often compared to mass media. Through this, I felt like I could really trust a bloggers response to a product/trend/event and was truly inspired to give it a good go myself. I suck at being confident which is definitely why ‘Blonde Amy’ wasn’t born sooner (despite my regret) but I have never looked back since. Having had this website since March the 4th 2015 (feel free to send celebratory items or eat cake with me in mind), I could not imagine my life without it. My blog is like a child, I have quickly seen it develop from strength to strength and with such an amazing support team around me, I definitely won’t be stopping anytime soon (sorry to those that were hoping differently).
Even since blogging for only a short period of time since the big names already out there, I have many fellow bloggers asking me for blogging tips, how to find inspiration, how to use a DSLR to capture higher quality images and how I use social media effectively to gain followers and traffic to my blog as well as how SEO can be optimized – and quite frankly, that seems surreal but equally flattering at the same time. I love helping others out, from those just starting out to those lacking a little inspiration. I am by no means a professional but I take it as a sign I’m doing something right… I hope.
Last little mention of what my current stance is in life. I have landed my dream job and currently working as a PR and Content assistant, which provides so many amazing transferable skills to make my blog a little bit better. Forget that all blondes are stupid (something I get sent a lot on social media, by the way) I recently graduated with a First Class Honours from the University of Westminster. My degree was Contemporary Media Practice and I learnt so many skills that helped develop my blog as well as help me understand all there is to the media industry. I moved away from the hustle of London to return to Devon, I now live in a small town surrounded by beaches and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
