ABOUT ME | 32 Facts to get to know me.

Random facts about me, Nicki Kinickie, Blog, lbloggers, All about me, Essex, Get to know me,

I am having a little bit a a blog revamp at the mo, nothing major just a few tweaks here and there. The biggest change is coming from me as a social networker and as a blogger. I feel like I have been 'lost' with blogging for so long and have never really known what to write. I enjoy being a lifestyle blogger because, while I enjoy reading other beauty blogs or whatever I am definitely not one myself. Even so, I had lost my way a bit. By chance, I ended up reading a really old post of mine from not long after I first set up this blog and suddenly realised something: yes it was badly written and not even really proof read but it was written from the heart. I was writing as if no one was reading (Actually, I doubt anyone was reading it at the time!). Despite the bad punctuation and odd spelling mistake I enjoyed reading it and went on to read another old post, and another, then another.

"I feel like I have been 'lost' with blogging for so long..."

Recently I have got so worried or concerned or - I don't even know actually, we will say worried - about what people wanted to read about on here or what I *should* be writing that I lost track of why I started this blog in the first place. It is a little place online for me to practice writing, enjoy writing and most importantly, write about what ever the hell I want, how I want and when I want. It is nice to treat it as a diary as I was when I first started off because it feels like much more heartfelt writing and is enjoyable for me to look back on in a few years and remember the odd memory or two I may have otherwise forgotten.

So, in keeping with this new way of thinking I thought you may - after all this time - want to know some (uninteresting) facts about me, your blogger.
