About Me

How are you? I'm Emily Bashforth, call me Emily.

I'm an 18 year old student from a small town in England. This blog was born out of boredom in January 2015 and has been my love for two years now. I have always possessed a great interest in writing but my blog has caused this to flourish. On here, you shall find blog posts regarding an array of topics. I enjoy writing about topical issues, mental health, politics and positivity then, at the other end of the spectrum, there are blog posts about fashion, beauty, celebrities and music. My blog is my brain in virtual form and is somewhere I can express myself creatively whilst emptying all of the nonsense inside my head and putting it into coherent sentences. I hope to educate, advise, entertain and inspire people with my writing and I'm very grateful for anyone who takes the time to read my pieces.

After studying my A-levels at college for two years, which were Creative Writing, Media Studies and English Language, I moved on to pursue Journalism, which has always been the direction I hoped for my career to go in. Until June 2018 I shall be studying to gain my NCTJ (National Council for the Training of Journalists) diploma and I hope to pursue a career in Journalism field after that. As a budding Journalist, writing for my blog has given me an abundance of experience, plus, as I enjoy the showbiz side of life, I currently write for celebrity news website, CelebMix, and thoroughly enjoy putting together articles for them and gaining experience within the field of Journalism.

I'm a shy, introverted Feminist who thinks more than she says but who feels passionately about having a positive impact on the world and creating an equal, peaceful future for all. I take great pride in unashamedly speaking out times of injustice and feel strongly especially when it comes to LGBTQ+ and women's rights.

In my spare time, when I'm not blogging, studying, hunting down news story opportunities for my Journalism course or thinking about how I'm going to change the world, I enjoy educating myself on the world in which I live, photographing beautiful things, reading (poetry is the best thing ever), and playing Scrabble. I eat a lot of pizza and I also like writing fictional pieces. I'm a devout music lover, too so I spend a large portion of my time blasting music through my headphones. Oh and I'm a One Direction fan. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this page full of codswallop, perhaps you learnt something about me, hopefully, you shall enjoy reading my blog posts. Admittedly, I'm no agony aunt, beauty guru, fashion designer or health expert, merely someone who spends more time typing than they do socialising but this blog is for you just as much as it is for me, so, I deeply hope that you find something interesting on here, whether that's a post which introduces you to a new musician or one which encourages you to change your mindset to a more optimistic one.
I am always here with open arms and ears should you ever fancy a chat or need someone to listen to you, so, send me a message.

Enjoy the rest of your day. Come back soon! (Only if you want to, if not, I don't mind). <3
