Please do not adjust your screen, yes this is a new Just Hollie post. I’M BACK BITCHES!
As you are aware, it’s the beginning of the new year and everyone is going all ‘new year, new me’. Well, I know you thought I was clearly above such things but newsflash I’m just as basic as everyone else and have been taking a long hard look in the mirror as one tends to do at this time of year. And do you know what I saw? Someone who, through no real fault of their own, lost their way and gave up the hobby they loved because well, ‘real life’ got in the way.
Below are a couple pictures of me recently, just in case you’ve forgotten the mug behind what you’re reading!
I can’t blame you if you have completely forgotten who the heck I am and why you would even care but if you are reading this there is a chance you are one of my beautiful followers who used to get a weekly dose of Hollie. But alas, around a year ago I got a promotion at work (I work 9-5 in an office in Norfolk) and my little slice of internet had to take a back seat. 2017 was very much a year of working my arse off to try and get ahead in life, as was also the case for my other half Daniel. I can very gratefully say it has paid off and we are both doing well at work and *squeals* even got engaged last April and have began to plan a wedding! EEKK!! (I will do a post soon all about the proposal because it’s quite the story!).
Basically what I’m trying to say is this; I started my blog, loved it, built up quite a following but I just had to concentrate for a year on my day job because, as much as I hate that it’s the case, paying the bills and building a life just has to come first sometimes. I wish I could say I was getting paid £10k per blog post and didn’t have to worry anymore but that’s never going to be the case. However, I really bloomin’ missed you lot. I missed sharing my life with the lovely community I started to become a part of and most of all, I missed writing. So I am going to MAKE time for Just Hollie, because I love it. Writing might not pay the bills for me just yet but ultimately it’s who I am. I can’t remember a time I didn’t love writing and I need it back in my life quite frankly!
So I hope you all forgive me for disappearing without explanation – it wasn’t intentional but I knew I couldn’t put much time into the blog last year and I didn’t want to give you a half-hearted effort. But, this time around I know how much I would miss it if I didn’t spend my spare time blogging, so you have me back and I ain’t going away again.
So, expect more from me from now on, I would really like it if you got to know me again,
I will be posting regularly, being much more active on Instagram and might even get brave and start posting some videos every now and then – what do you think? Am I forgiven?
More to the point, what have I missed? I would love to hear from my regular followers about what has been happening in your lives.
