And suddenly you just know … It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings. — Meister Eckhart
Do you remember your first day at a new school or in a new job, a new country or a new anything for that matter? Do you remember the feeling you got just before you decided to walk through the literal or figurative door? Was it scary? Maybe it was exciting? That is what it feels like starting this blog – scary and nerve-wracking but definitely exciting.
I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a while now – but I always got stuck on what I would write about. I mean, as a person who only recently turned 18, my life experience is minimal and under-baked compared to most bloggers and people in general for that matter. Also, because I have such a broad interest range, I was very lost as to what direction I would go in. But now here I am, finally starting this blog. This blog is basically going to be life from the perspective of a tall blonde South African girl who finished high school in 2018 and is now going to travel the world doing short courses until university starts. Blog topics will range from book reviews to fun tips and tricks or even some healthy recipes that are either going to impress your friends or satisfy your sweet tooth cravings (or both – whatever suits your needs). A lot of my friends have asked me why I want to suddenly start a blog or why I’m only deciding to start a blog now, and the answer is quite simple. I love sharing my experiences and the fun tricks that I learn, so I hope that anyone who reads this enjoys what I have to offer. I’ve spent the last two years writing for small magazines around Johannesburg, as well as writing blog posts for two non-profit organisations I am part of. I spend so much time scouring the internet for advice and interesting perspectives so I thought it was high time I started adding my own stories to the mix.
For anyone looking for something a bit more specific from my side, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or email me about any content that you would like to see and I will do my best to center one of the next posts on it. Before I disappear for now, I’d just like to clarify what this blog will be about, just in case I haven’t been clear. This blog is going to be a lifestyle blog. There will be travel posts, health and fitness posts (including recipes that I have spent quite some time perfecting), and tips/advice/fun stories that one can either apply to their own life or simply read and enjoy. What’s the point in having all of this knowledge and advice if I can’t share it right? I’m really looking forward to seeing how this goes, so I shall love and leave you now, but I will see you in the next post.
Lots of Love
