Who are you? Where are you from? What do you do?
My name is Charlie and I’m from Northern Ireland. I’ve been in the same old town all my days, and I live with my parents and two cats, Pepper and Missy. I have a handful of different qualifications (digital photography diploma, foundation degree in creative technology, national diploma in game design) but due to being sick, I’m classified as unfit to work. I run this blog and a small gaming channel to keep me active.
How long have you been blogging? What do you blog about?
I’ve run blogs in the past. I once ran a sims 3 story blog over on blogger that’s long been deleted, and I had a gaming specific blog where I talked about games and posted my videos. I ended up accidentally abandoning that one when education got busy. I felt it would be weird to start using it again after such a long absence, so I deleted it. These days I usually just run personal tumblr blogs where I reblog lots of gaming things, photography, and relatable posts.
As for this blog, it will be focused on my health and my illnesses with occasional posts involving the things I enjoy in life such as videogames, books, and TV shows. The aim of this blog is to document my progress of coping with the recent lifestyle changes I’ve had to make, as well as generally coming to terms with being sick, while trying to spread awareness of my illnesses through posting about my own experiences.
Are you active on other websites?
Disclaimer: Everything written in this blog is written by me. I’m aware that some people may have different experiences than me in regards to my illnesses, but this space is specifically for my experiences.
