Em. A trifling teenager, who back in March decided to create this little platform known to be, EmilyBecca. Unlike the past 5 of her blogs, she decided to keep this one somewhat ‘anonymous’ so she could find her feet in the blogging world. She was then beyond terrible with maintaining said blog and uploading any content and engaging with anyone in the blogging world.
Fast forward to September.
Em, just approaching the beginning of her gap year, decided that this was actually something she wanted and would no longer let it be pushed to the side. And so actually attempted blogger things. Half way through this month she was uploading blog posts every other day and engaging with so many lovely people on Twitter, who she still talks to, and more, to this day.
This got her thinking, ‘Damn, these are the greatest people I’ve met in a long time, I blooming love blogging.’ But still kept herself private, because she was afraid of people she knew finding out.
Roll onto today both her brother and best friend know and have had the most love and support she could ever ask for. It was kind of unfathomable for her.
Em had also booked 2 upcoming blogger events where she would be able to meet some of the lovely people from Twitter and feel like somewhat of a ‘real blogger’.
After countless hours of thinking, Em decided that for many reasons she wanted this little footprint on the internet to be more personal, she wanted to put a face to EmilyBecca.
So, hey, I’m Em.
I couldn’t decide on one photo…
But yes, this is me, Em. And this probably isn’t very exciting for you, apologies, it’s a whole rollarcoster of emotions for me as I never thought I’d really ‘show myself’ as it were for a very long time.
However, although I’ve done this doesn’t mean I’m going to be very open with my identity, simply because I’m still not telling anyone else I know and don’t want many people finding out just yet. But I do want to be on a more personal level with this blog and believe this is the right way forward for me in so many ways.
I won’t say much more as I’ll leave the facts to another post. Apologies for this very pretentious, soppy post, and the talking in third person?? (I don’t really know either…) but I wholeheartedly do hope that this step up will see me well for the future and that those reading will enjoy getting to know me a little bit more.
Until next time,
