So by now you’ll know that I’ve finished university (and I’m graduating in two weeks!). And I’m back home in good ole’ Liverpool. Given the fact that I’m in the middle of a fairly significant lifestyle change, moving back home and all, it got me thinking maybe it was time to switch up the blog. You might have already noticed that I changed up my blog heading a bit (…or maybe not). And there’s been a bit of experimentation with my home page too. But anyway, before you start panicking over any crazy changes that could be coming I think I should clear up my thinking process with you.
Basically I’ve reached a point in my blogging “journey” (..?) where I’m not entirely the same person I was when I first started. When I think back to the starting point of Female Original, I was 19 and had almost finished my first year at university. As an almost-22-year-old I definitely feel a bit different to when I started. For starters…I’m not a student anymore. Which means university, which was once a large part of my content, isn’t something I’ll feature anymore. Although this is a bizarre thought, it’s just not a part of who I am anymore! As well as this, I’ve developed different interests to when I first started. Sustainable and ethical fashion being one of them. But also my increasing love of music, and recent experience producing music for my degree show (let me know if you want any content about my degree etc.) So, what’s next?
Food for Thought
Something that you might’ve noticed is that I’m really enjoying writing about Liverpool at the moment. Specifically food and drink within the city. I’ve always been a foodie (fairly obvious from the amount of food posts I have on this blog!). Whether that be eating out or cooking at home. While I was away at university there wasn’t a lot of exploring I could do in the world of food. I’d try a few different recipes every now and then and maybe have a brunch with some friends (rarely!) but I never really got a chance to fully experiment with cooking and dining out. I think part of this was the fact that I lived in a student house and they’re not exactly the most inspiring places to cook in! Either way, foodie content took a slight backseat over the last year of blogging because it simply wasn’t possible.
What I’m trying to say is that I’m planning on slowly integrating more and more food content into the next era of Female Original. And I’m pretty bloody excited about it!
As I’ve mentioned already, music is a huge interest of mine after working with it throughout my degree. Since the beginning of my blog I’ve always shared playlists with you all and it’s been one of my favourite things to do on here. But I was wondering if there could be a way for me to branch out with the kind of music content I create. I’m not entirely sure what my plan is yet but I’m toying with the idea of reviews and interviews. Obviously I’ll need to test out what I enjoy writing about when it comes to music. For all I know I might start exploring writing reviews and absolutely hate it. But I guess I have the summer to figure it all out!
Enough of me though, I want to read YOUR THOUGHTS! What content have you enjoyed the most on my blog? How do you feel about the potential changes? Is there anything that you want to see in the next stage of Female Original? Let me know in the comments as I’d really appreciate your feedback.
