Although I contacted a few people over the holidays to be my December Blogger of the Month, unfortunately nobody got back to me, so I missed out on featuring a blogger last month.
However, now we’re back with Hannah of Hannah Mary.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
Oh gosh, I always hate this question because it’s possible that I’m the most boring person on the planet and can never think of anything to say about myself (its why my about page suuuucks!) but my name is Hannah, I’m 24 and I work as a PR assistant in Bristol. I’m relatively new to blogging so I don’t really have a niche as of yet, though I do really enjoy being nicheless so maybe I’ll stick to that.
How did you get into blogging?
I’d toyed with the idea of starting a blog for a very long time and I always included a blog in whatever project I was working on at uni, but never took the step to start a personal one. I moved in with my boyfriend and his family in June 2018 and realised quickly that I needed to pick up a hobby to keep my sanity and give my boyfriend time to do one of his fifty billion hobbies without feeling guilty so I started a blog and it was the best decision I ever made! The blogging community is possibly the nicest bunch of people I’ve ever met and I forgot how much I used to love writing until I started blogging.
Tell us about your favorite blog post.
This was actually really hard, I only have 18 blog posts live but I love them all so much for different reasons! If I had to go with one, I think it would be ‘Netflix and Ch-eeeesy Christmas Films’ because 1) it got my boyfriend to watch cheesy Christmas films with me, 2) writing it made me laugh a lot and 3) it was a different way for me to incorporate a cheesy-Christmas film post into my blog, without it just being a standard review or chit-chat.
What are you doing when you’re not blogging?
If I’m not blogging then I’m doing one of three things; watching something on Netflix, reading a book or playing around with make-up eyeshadow palettes and recreating make-up tutorials. If I’m not doing on of those three things then I’m probably taking a nap (told you I lead an exciting life…)
What is your biggest goal for 2019?
Biggest goal for 2019 blog wise is to go self-hosted so I have more freedom with the design of my blog and have my own domain (currently in the process of making the switch!). And to learn how to use Pinterest, because I have no idea what I’m doing over there, unless it’s pinning pictures of my dream kitchen. Which brings me on to my next goal which is to move into my own house so I’m on step closer to getting my dream Pinterest kitchen. Not sure if this one will happen this year or next, but I’m working towards it!
What books are at the top of your to-read list?
I have a lot of books on my reading list this year as I’m aiming to read 30 books (not hard for some people but it will be a slight challenge for me) but at the top of my reading list is ‘What If It’s Us’ by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silveraand ‘Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine’ by Gail Honeyman. I bought them both with a voucher I got for Christmas. I’ve heard lots of good things so I hope they both live up to the hype. Though I’m currently reading ‘One Day in December’ and this is going to be a hard book to follow, I’m hooked!
Where else can we find you?
