Today I am TWO!
HELLO LOVELY BLOG READERS!
Today marks TWO WHOLE YEARS since I started rambling and shouting here on Bloody Hell Brennan. COR THAT’S GONE QUICK HASN’T IT?!
I have LOVED blogging over the last couple of years, so much more than I ever thought I would, and more people have read it than I EVER thought would so THANK YOU. Thank you for clicking, reading, sharing, commenting, tweeting and just being really great humans really. To hear that something I’ve scribbled has made someone chuckle or smile makes me feel warmer than a slug of Disaronno from a hip flask on a chilly November evening.
This past year saw adventures in Berlin, Brighton, Bristol, Edinburgh and Amsterdam, finger licking goodness in some wonderful restaurants, slugging back cocktails at some bitching bars , gazing at some marvellous exhibitions, experimenting with group dating and being invited to a Gin Distillery for my birthday. I saw a whole host of theatre, became part of the #LDNTheatreBloggers gang and also got to go to some EXCELLENT events.
Amidst all that, I wrote The Commandments of Adulthood, talked about how to make it as an actor and auditions, invented some excellent products for females, posted my first attempt at writing fiction, and answered some burning questions about women. When I spaffed some nonsense about what the Tube Lines would look like as people, I managed to get posted on both Buzzfeed and Time Out which was PRETTY SICK ( and also quickly learned never to read the comments on those sites. To the person who commented simply- “you’re a cunt”, thanks for your constructive criticism <3 )
I’ve learned SO MUCH in the last two years, and am super proud of the site and how far it’s come. I’ve still got some plans about where I want to take all this and ideas for new posts and how to improve but I feel like it’s all in motion. I managed to get some advertising on the site this year (which, yeah I know looks effing ugly but bear with caller, it’s all baby steps) and have worked with some SUPER brands and PR companies on collaborative posts which is always great. Thanks to you lot sharing my shit around, I’ve also seen a HUGE increase in the amount of freelance commissions I get from various websites and magazines. It feels SO NICE to get paid for doing stuff. I’ve also managed to get a job as a copywriter for a sex shop website, but that’s another story.
So thank you. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for continuing to click, laugh and support. I JUST BUM YOU ALL and I hope you enjoy reading my shouty capital letters and slurrings about gin as much as I enjoy writing them.
Now let’s go sort the fuck out of February.
