Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexandra Walsh.
Alexandra, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Ever since I was little, I have always loved writing. Creating stories of adventure unlike any other. I felt like I had this power to bring people to a different world…one that I built. Besides being creative, writing has been an escape for me. During some of my lowest lows and even highest highs, I turn to journaling for help. During quarantine, as many others, I was furloughed from work and sought out writing again as an outlet. I always loved the idea of writing a blog and knew this was the time for me to share it. As a 20 something living in the year 20 something I know it’s not easy trying to figure out who you are and what your purpose is in life. I want others out there to know they are not alone and that you will find your path. My message and my goal is to inspire, motivate, and spread more positivity.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I started my social media journey on Instagram with an account all about makeup. In the past few months, I have hit a rut and realized I wanted to share more than just makeup. But nowadays, you have to be unique, and trying to gain attention and grow followers is a whole other story. I am excited about what I am sharing, but trying not to get caught up in the follower count, views, or likes can be tough. It took a lot for me to feel comfortable enough to put myself out there to start my account in the first place. I stopped myself so many times thinking why would someone want to follow me, I’m not as good as other people or why am I special. That is something I realized once I started that if it makes me happy, that’s all that matters. You always hear people say all you have to do is start, but that’s one of the hardest parts. I am hoping my platforms bring others motivation to follow what they are passionate about and if it makes them happy then share it!
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
EverydayZandy.com is my new blog where I share tips, tricks, and a few fun pics to help you get through your everyday life. I am a 20 something living in the year 20 something and life isn’t easy. We are all trying to grow up, graduate, start a career, deal with money, move out, and more all while trying to figure out who we are. Hopefully, Everydayzandy.com can bring you some entertainment and assistance, even if it’s just a quick laugh or smile. Sometimes you need a break from the real world and to be told a story unlike your own or to be shown that yes, you can do this! That’s what I am here for, that is what I am bringing to the table and I am passionate about it.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
If you asked me this question over the summer, I would have said my blog. Now I think it’s figuring out truly what Everyday Zandy is and means and how it relates to the people I am sharing it with. Asking who is my audience and why do they need to read my story. I am looking forward to learning and growing with each post and eventually gain a following where I can connect with other people.
