So, I’m Charlene McElhinney. A 20 year old girl living in Glasgow, Scotland. I began blogging as I had been suffering from Depression and Anxiety for almost a year and I needed somewhere where I could express my thoughts and feelings. I have always kept a journal – throughout my whole life – and so I decided to take that journal online and share my experiences with other people. Apart from talking about Mental Health; I also cover a variety of other lifestyle posts such as where I’ve been, how I’ve been feeling that day, what I’ve been up to. Now – my blog is so much more – I still do lifestyle related posts but I also share my poetry, YouTube singing videos and vlogs, I do shopping haul posts, book reviews, product reviews, product posts etc. I genuinely cover a bit of everything on my blog and I have many exciting things coming up!
Starting my blog was the best thing I ever did. I take so much comfort from it. I have met so many wonderful people through it and I am part of the loveliest community ever. I have created my own #beechat community in which I have 1000+ people involved – and my own ‘snail mail’ project – where people write to one another from all over the world (90+ of us so far). People admire me, encourage me and endlessly support me and I just feel like the luckiest girl in the whole wide world.
My blog is continuously growing and fabulous opportunities keep arising for me and I just feel so blessed.
A bit more about me: I have 2 cats – Gizmo and Milo (which I love so dearly). I have a wonderful family, friends and boyfriend who always have my back and support everything I do. I enjoy singing, writing, shopping, playing board games, working out and dancing. I also love acting but I am working (slowly but surely) on getting my confidence back so I can get back in to it.
I do not want to ramble on too much – I just want you all to know why I started blogging, how much I love it and a few facts about me.
If you want to know more then browse through my blog posts or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (alternatively leave me a comment & say hello)!
I hope that you will enjoy reading my content and browsing through my photographs and posts. I pour my heart and soul in to everything I do.
