But why did I choose 2017? Well after years of reading other blogs, working for a high end fashion retailer and showing and increasing interest in photography, I guess now seemed the right time to use my experience and what I’ve learned and put it into practice.
Now six months into youlookgreatsir.co.uk I couldn’t be happier. I now have over 12,000 hits on my site. To some this might not seem relevant to any form of success or even seem worthy of mentioning. But I started my website as a way of documenting areas of the male lifestyle in which interests me and I think will interest others. To now have 12,000 clicks to my website in six months is something I never would have imagined, especially since I haven’t spent a penny on any form or marketing or advertising (OK I did an Instagram boost once for £5), but still….
Jumping in front of the camera as apposed to being behind was something I’m immensely proud of. My insecurities of blemished skin from time to time, to wanting to have a better physique, to trying not to have a photo side on to showcase my beautiful, yet hawk like nose were areas I had to forget about, after all if I’m personally reviewing brands or services people need to see me in the shot.
As for 2018 well let’s see what it has in store. I’m not one for making New Year resolutions and if I see or hear someone say ‘2018, New Year, new me’ without being sarcastic or amusing, I may have to personally slap you with my hawk nose. You’ve been warned.
I’d like to say thank you to my photographer Matt McCormick who has been a breath of fresh air making me feel comfortable with the photo shoots. Josh at No.3 Gentleman’s Hairdressing has been fantastic in giving me haircuts that flatter me beyond my average looks and of course my wonderful girfriend, Rosie who has been the absolute reason behind all the hard work and effort that actually goes on behind the scenes of trying to run a website and social media platforms.
