Why I started my blog…

If you would like to learn more about my setting up of Steph’s World as well as my love/hate relationship in Instagram, my setting up of my blog and finding my feet as well as my rebrand in June 2016, you can read all about it in a post called Steph’s World Story & Update.

The beginning…

The Steph’s World story begins over 1 year ago today when it was merely an idea and a goal of mine. Me and my Boyfriend was talking one day about hobbies and discussed the idea of me starting my own blog, which wasn’t an idea which I had thought about before; but it all seemed too daunting to do. My Boyfriend is the technical brains to Steph’s World and I am the creative side as well as writing and Social Media (of course). We worked days, nights and weekends to get Steph’s World to resemble me and ultimately my brand.

Another reason why I wanted to start a blog…

Another reason I wanted to start blogging was to learn about PR, SEO, HTML and coding as well as working on skills such as social media, networking, writing, photoshop and photo editing and marketing. These are all skills which I would love to put to use in my work or to help me find a career within Social Media or PR.

Why I chose to rebrand as a Lifestyle blog…

So if you read by Story & Update post, you would know that Steph’s World was not intending to be a Lifestyle Blog. When I set up this blog, I thought it would be focused on 4 main areas, Theatre show reviews, beauty product reviews, baking recipes and where to visit and reviews of days out attractions. This would have been ok for a blog and they are 4 area’s I still discuss now, but I didn’t like the fact that I didn’t have a label like ‘Beauty Blogger’ or ‘Fashion Blog’. That’s why I chose to rebrand as a Lifestyle Blog so I would have an umbrella title.

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who has read or commented on my blog this past year; and thank you to those who I have met along the way, became friends with and supported me. I really think you are all great! Honestly!

    I’ve definitely learnt a lot when it comes to SEO and HTML. In the tech-age that we find ourselves in, these are skills that are not wasted!

    Lovely post!
