When I established Things Tanith Did two years ago it was a hobby. Somewhere for me to write and express myself. A place to just be me. I didn’t really expect anyone to read it, and I particularly didn’t expect it to help me so much in other aspects of my life. But it has helped me…a huge amount.
Before starting my blog in 2014 I was interested in pursuing a career within the television industry, preferably in some sort of editing capacity. However, as time went on, the passion I had for this area dwindled and I found myself feeling more and more distant from an industry I’d once revelled in. Through blogging, I’d gained a great deal more hands on experience in writing and photography alongside promotion via social media. I began with under 100 followers on Twitter and have somehow managed to get that up to over 630 people! To many people that will seem like nothing, but for someone who created this space for my own personal enjoyment and with no experience in using social media in a promotional capacity, this is pretty damn fantastic.
