Happy Birthday to Me! And a Blog Survey for all my amazing readers!!

Hello all of you lovely readers!! How are you doing today?

So just in case you thought I was making a joke in the title, no it is not click bait. Today is my 20th Birthday WHOOOP WHOOOOPP!!!

It’s my first birthday away from home, which feels a little weird and a bit sad because I normally spend the day with my friends and family, followed by our traditional dinner of Chinese takeaways. However, today is not a day to be sad at all!! Not only am I leaving my teen years behind me completely (now that sounds scary … hello adulthood … and responsibilities and and and), but I get to have a whole new birthday experience here at university.

I’ve had so many fun adventures and incredible experiences in my twenty years (wow I can’t believe how old that just made me feel but you can check out my recent post about 20 things to do before you turn 20), including starting and growing this blog and that is all thanks to you! Over a year and a half later with almost 200 posts and over 600 followers, I am absolutely flabbergasted with how amazing it all is. I honestly can’t tell you how happy this makes me as it seriously feels like I only started blogging yesterday and not for one second did I imagine ever getting this far.

So, seeing as today is a special day (my flatmates have certainly made it a delightful day of celebrations and all the beautiful, incredible kind words and gifts from my family and friends, especially those all the way back home – I love you all and miss you so much), I’ve decided to do something a little different. It isn’t something too special (sadly I can’t send you all slices of birthday cake although I wish I could), but I wanted to conduct a little survey to understand your thoughts about Tall Blonde Tales and what you’re expecting and hope for on the blog. If you all have a few minutes, it would mean so much to me if you could take this survey as I really want to hear from you. Your feedback helps me grow and give you content you enjoy so thank you!!


Also, for my birthday I’m asking everyone to leave a donation to WWF because I don’t know about you but I certainly think all the amazing animals on our planet could use some love and support. If you do feel like donating, any contribution big or small would be so incredibly appreciated so if you want to, please contact me using the contact form or leave a message in the comments so I can share the donation page with you. Thank you so much again for this and for completing the survey.

Now I’m going to go and eat my body weight in chocolate cake!

I hope you all have a super amazing day and thank you so much for your constant love and support.

Lots of Love

  3. Thanks Blondey,
    Hope you had a wonderful new Birthday experience, they always say “:teenagers know everything” not sure what you do now that you are entering “adulthood”? How was the chocolate cake?
