Welcome to my blog! I have actually been blogging for about 2 years now, but I have previously only been blogging about my favourite books and what I read. I still love doing that, so I am going to continue to do so; however, I also wanted a personal blog where I could share my life, my struggles, my achievements and so much more. This led to splitting my original blog in two! I know have this blog and a separate book blog where I can continue raving about books twice a week without it complete swamping this blog. My book blog is https://books.samanthadrage.co.uk/ in case you ever want to listen to me scream about books.
In case you don’t know who I am or haven’t read the home page, my name is Samantha Drage (Sam for short) and I am a 16 year old girl with dreams far bigger than you could imagine! I am also autistic and I struggle with depression and anxiety, so I have a fair share of things on my plate, but I haven’t let it stop me and I don’t ever plan to! I want to be a writer, photographer and travel the world to such an extent that there is no corner left untouched.
This blog is going to be all about me though! I have recently started a YouTube channel where I am simply weekly vlogging in order to share my life and I wanted a written version of it as well because I find I often communicate better through writing than talking. My YouTube channel is Samantha Drage and this blog will be closely linked to that YouTube channel. On this blog I am planning on sharing my day to day struggles of being someone with autism in a world that wasn’t designed for me, how I navigate my mental health issues, my journey as I start college in September, behind the scenes of photo shoots and so much more! I am so excited to start writing more about me and my life and I hope you’ll join me!
At the moment I am still not entirely sure of when or how often I am going to post on this blog, but I will keep you posted and let you know when I’ve figured out a posting schedule that works for me! If you want to join me on my journey through life as I work on achieveing my dreams, then you can sign up to my blog via email subscription (no spam I promise! 😊❤) and you can go and follow my YouTube to see what I do on a weekly basis!
Tell me about you in the comments below! What is your biggest dream/ambition?
Goodbye for now!
Over and Out
