I think it’s time I made my big announcement don’t you?! Lord knows I’ve mentioned it enough!
This announcement really is life changing for me and I’m really excited and I hope that you’ll all be excited for me too because without you what I’m about to announce wouldn’t even be possible..
It’s been something I’ve been working towards for a little while and now it’s finally happening, it’s finally here and I’m just so incredibly happy!
I feel like I’m possibly hyping this up so much you’ll be disappointed when I actually tell you…
I’m now officially a full time blogger! 😀
This is such a life changing thing for me, I now get to do the thing that I love most full time.
It’s been a rough few years for me, with my Grandad’s battle with Alzheimer’s, my battle with depression, all of my loved ones who have passed away, and I just feel like this is my chance to draw a big line under it all and move on.
I’m so incredibly happy, I can’t even begin to put it into words!
So now I guess you’re probably wondering what this means for you?
Well it means that you’ll be getting at least one blog post from me EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Posting schedule looks like this:
Monday: Music Mondays
Tuesday: Book Related Posts
Wednesday: Opinion / Review Post
Thursday: Throwback Thursday
Friday: Something Life related.
Saturday: Poetry or General Ramblings
Sunday: Weekly Roundup.
Don’t worry before I start a new series I’ll put a post up on that day explaining more about the series so you’ll know what it’s about!
Because I’m full time I’ll naturally have a lot more time to blog now so it means that I’m going to be scheduling posts in advance, in fact as I write this it is 18/04/2015!
I’m also going to be scheduling social media posts to publish throughout the day and night to make sure that none of you miss any of my blog posts.
I know that it’s breaking some blogging rules by telling you all that I’m going to be scheduling in advance but I’ve always been honest with you guys and that’s not about to change.
Plus I don’t see scheduling as a bad thing, scheduling means that I can guarantee you get a post every single day and the social media posts just mean that you won’t miss out on anything!
As well as scheduling blog posts and social media posts I’m also going to be starting daily live streams on Periscope from my new office! 🙂
If you don’t know what Periscope is it’s a new live streaming app created by Twitter, you can download it for free in the app store and it’s just this really awesome way to connect with you guys in a more intimate in the moment kind of way! I won’t be able to see you but you’ll be able to see me live and ask me questions and just have a nice little chat with me!
I think it’s going to be really fun, I’ve done things like this with other live stream sites in the past and it was always really fun to do so I’m excited to give it a go with Periscope!
I’ll possibly come up with a schedule for live streams but for now I’ll just announce when I’m about to go live!
Make sure you’re following me on Periscope: @MissCharlotteEm so you don’t miss out!
I’m just so happy though, it feels amazing getting to do what I love every single day! I’m incredibly lucky and honestly if it wasn’t for you guys none of this would be possible.
I love you all millions I really do.
I just can’t believe that this is my job, I never intended for any of this to happen 8 years ago when I started blogging, it’s amazing and ugh I honestly can’t believe it.
I’m just so happy. I keep crying with happiness, it’s honestly taken me 3 hours to write this post because I keep getting overwhelmed with happiness and crying.
There’s been so many people who have doubted me over the years, people who told me I’d never be anything and that my “little blog” was stupid and a waste of time.
To all of those people I’d just like to say that I’m 23 years old and I run my own successful business, I get to do what I love all day every day. Isn’t jealousy a bitch?
I just want to say to any of you out there who are being bullied, who feel worthless, who feel like you’ll never be anything, like there’s no point in even living. It does get better, I promise.
I was bullied throughout my time in high school and it was horrific and now I look at the people that bullied me and actually it’s them who didn’t amount to much. Like I said, at the age of 23 I’m running my own successful business and I’ve never been happier. Bullies never win.
Creepers will creep, haters will hate and you? Well you’re going to be okay, I promise. It’ll get better and then you’ll be able to look back at these days and realise that actually none of it matters really.
But yes there you go that’s my big announcement, I’m now officially a full time blogger and I couldn’t be happier about it!
All I need now is to draw a big fat line under it all and we can move on. I’m about to start a new chapter of my life and I can’t wait!
I’ve got a Music Monday post on the way in an hour and also an announcement relating to ABGT150 so make sure you check back later on for those!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and for all of your support over the last 8 years, you’re all amazing and I love you millions!
Take care, stay safe and be kind to one another!
All my love, always.
