An Awkward Introduction To Another ‘Fresh’ Start

Hi there!

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate introduction posts – I feel so awkward writing them! And I’ve written quite a few, as this is not my first blog. I also blog at The Writing Hufflepuff, my books/writing/personal blog and oh boy my first post on there was… Let’s pretend it doesn’t exist okay? So naturally I am not looking forward to writing this one, but hey, I still want to introduce myself. So…

So this blog has actually been around since Summer 2017 but… I’ve been really bad at keeping it active and I had no plan whatsoever. I just posted photos here and there and that was it. I didn’t really find any fun in that, so I was just not motivated to try and keep this blog up  while also having school, work, personal stuff and another blog to keep up. I deleted all my posts a few months ago to start over, but I still kept neglecting this blog as I still didn’t like it nor did I have a plan. BUT! I have a plan now, and I’m excited to start this blog up again.

So let’s get this awkward introduction out of the way so I can get started on the good stuff, shall we? My name is Michelle, I’m 20 years old and a journalism student. I just came back from doing a minor in history for three months in Manchester, so look forward to a lot of photos from Manchester.

I’ve wanted to be a writer and journalist ever since I was little, but I’ve also always loved photography, even though I had no clue what I was doing with my little Barbie camera. I love capturing moments, being able to keep memories this way* and trying to take aesthetically pleasing pictures (thus this blog’s name!)

* I have a terrible memory so that’s probably also why I love photography

Obviously, that’s a very short version of who I am, but if you want to know more I’ll try to make my about page a little more detailed.

So what will this blog be about? It will be a photography, art and travel blog, but who knows what will happen in the future.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND ME: books and writing blog // instagram for this blog // personal instagram // twitter // personal tumblr // aesthetics tumblr // pinterest // weheartit // goodreads

And that’s that awkward introduction out of the way! Phew.

Do you do photography? Do you share it on your blog? Please let me know in the comments!It’s been  a struggle trying to find blogs to follow who do haha.
