Welcome to my new blog,
Last year I created a blog called Writing Through Silence, I always loved to write and I wanted to share my work with the world and blogging was the easiest way to do that. At first, all the writing I published on that blog focused on current issues that affected me and other young people, and topics that I was inspired to write my opinion about. I centred my writing around the Virginia Woolf quote “I want to write about silence, the things people don’t say.”
As time went by I stumbled across the “blogging world” and started reading other people’s blogs and I wanted to post a more variety of content. Due to my love for theatre I then applied, was interviews and later became the official blogger for The Birmingham Hippdrome, which is the biggest theatre in Birmingham. So as I started writing theatre reviews, I also ventured into writing lifestyle posts and travel posts alongside my normal writing.
I decided to change the name of my blog to Sincerely Amy because I felt it fit the content more and I wanted to expand the genre of writing on my blog. I also wanted my name to be incorporated in the title of the blog because ultimately my blog is my brand, it’s who I am and I wanted to add a bit of personality into it, so it wasn’t just about the writing but also about the person behind the words.
I’ve learnt a hell of a lot about blogging in the past year, the different types of bloggers, the content that people love to read, the importance of photos and blog layouts. So that’s why I have upgraded my blog, made it look a bit fancier and put a new spin on it. Thanks to the fabulous Pasquale whose work you can find here, he fantastically put together this whole blog in merely a matter of days.
Writing is my passion but recently I’ve become more and more interested in taking photos, I have a lovely little camera and I really like messing around with different angles and different settings to take interesting photos. I plan to take a lot of more photos and they are something I aim to feature a lot more on my blog.
Ultimately my blog is my baby and I put a lot of work into it because it is what I love to do. I’m not aiming to be one of those famous bloggers that get invited to all the events such as fashion shows and lavish parties. I just want to get my writing and ideas out there for people to see. But most importantly I want to keep my writing grounded and stay real and relatable. I know nothing about beauty or fashion, but I do know a lot about life. I will write about what I encounter in life, issues I’m interested in, places I visit, what inspires me and the things that I love. I will express myself and my life through words, and it will all be posted here on my shiny new blog.
It’s great to see another Theatre blogger out there! Keep writing, often the unspoken issues are the one’s that need to be shouted the loudest!
Thank you very much for your lovely comment, I love to write about whatever I am passionate about but reviewing theatre is what I love the most!
I think as long as you’re passionate about it, other people will be too! I look forward to reading more from you!
