So I’ve finally taken the plunge and set up a blog!
People have been on at me about starting one for god knows how long and as much as I wanted to, the thing that was holding me back was the competition….the competition and the worry that no one would give a c**p what I have to say (I’m yet to find out)! I wasn’t sure if I had a niche that would make me stand out from all of the other amazing fashion, travel and lifestyle blogs out there in cyberspace. But you know what? There’s plenty of space for one more, right?
So to explain the name…
Those of you who know me will know that I’m a bit of a Calamity Jane at times, I think I inherited the clumsy gene from my mum (sorry mama bear!) Anyway, getting on to the point that I was about to make…the phrase “Oh Deering” was coined in reference to my life blunders (My friends Josh at uni even decided he wanted to make an Oh Deering sitcom showcasing my clumsy and most ridiculous day to day moments and when I started working at a digital agency after graduating they even turned it into a hashtag!) , so I thought it would make a good fit for the blog!
I’m still not sure if I’m going to create a theme or just go with the flow, but it feels good to have finally set up a blog after years of deliberating! Working as a copywriter in fashion, I spend each day writing about the latest trends and fashion news, so though I have a passion for writing, come 5pm I have square eyes from the computer screen, but I’m gonna do my best to keep this up.
See you soon for my next blog…hopefully with a bit more substance!
