Hello! Welcome to AIMÉE, a new lifestyle, travel and creative blog written by me – Aimée.
Who am I?
I am a 22-year-old Multimedia Journalism graduate, born and raised in South Wales, currently living in London town.
My history with blogging and social media started in my teens with many-a-YouTube channel that never actually stuck and many-a-blog with similar results.
I could sit here listing my many excuses for why those attempts never stuck but we would be here for hours. So, I’ll just stick to my most recent attempt. The blog was wordpress.com hosted and the reality is that I just wasn’t proud of it.
I didn’t like the way it looked and I found it difficult to truly customise to my needs. It felt unorganised, unprofessional and I felt ashamed sharing it with anyone and thus felt like it was pointless contributing to.
However, the itch to create content has never subsided and so after much deliberation I arrived here.
It took me so long to come to this decision. I took into account the advantages of self-hosting, the cost, whether I would actually use the site, and whether it was worth spending the money on something that is ultimately just to satisfy my own creative cravings but ultimately I just decided to trust myself. This is something I have been thinking about for months and I just want to make something I can be proud of.
So here we are.
Another day, another blog.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey.F
