Ruth Writes is a 30-something Liverpool based blog covering mid-size fashion, pescatarian food and beauty.
It’s been a while since I offered a little life-update on here so here goes…. Since April I have been working for Matalan as Online Copywriter which is a job I absolutely love. It’s amazing to work within the E-Commerce dept of such a busy team and see the team grow. Plus the added bonus of looking at oh-so pretty clothes and getting spending-envy on a daily basis is kinda cool.
I have had my space on the inter-web now for over two years and it still surprises how far the blogging community has come since the Summer of 2010 when I set up my blog. Bloggers are at the fore-front of fashion, with ‘higher profile’ bloggers acting as models in campaigns such as Miss Selfridge.
One part of my 9-5 which I love is blogger outreach and getting to know the girls and guys behind the outfit posts. It is through blogs that I discover a must-have dress and blogs are often my first point of purchase. The fact that someones blog becomes daily reading and can influence a girls shopping habits is pretty great.
I also love my blog because it allows me to write to my hearts content and talk about what I’m loving as well as it being an online diary of sorts. Looking back on posts fro 12-18 months ago, it is nice to be aable to have recorded what was happening at that stage.
Anyone who knows me well knows that I love all things celebrity and reality based so when I recently saw an ad to write for a gossip site I jumped at the chance. It is a great opportunity to write and the style comes so naturally. So, if you’re like me and that way inclined take a goosey gander here…..
I’m still learning all the time and it is crazy to think just 18 months ago I didn’t even know this side of retail existed. Who knows what will be happening in the next 18? Watch this space………
