Hello beautiful people. I’m Hannah and welcome to my ever-developing blogging website: Smith Standard.
Getting Smith Standard up and running has been in the works for a long time, and as you can see, is still a work in progress. But I’m finally doing it. Again. Yes, this has been something I’ve tried and stopped and tried again and failed. You may even notice some blog articles from 2014 floating around … my opinions and blogging voice may have changed over the past few years, but I’m still proud of the things I’ve written.
Writing has long been a passion of mine, as has fitness, eating, watching Netflix, not practicing what I preach when it comes to nutrition, bitching about winter and stopping mid-sentence when I see a dog. So I figured I’d combine all of these elements into one beautiful space where I can share and rant and get political, hypocritical and literal all at once.
The name “Smith Standard” purely came about by me having the surname Smith and me saying “standard” all the time. That’s it. E.g. “Hannah did you eat the entire block of cheese?” Me: “Of course. Standard”. I am aware this is not original and that many people exchange similar pleasantries on the reg.
In my opinion, starting your own blog or website is rather self-indulgent. I have created a space named after myself, where I can share all elements of MY life, write about MY opinions, share MY thoughts, photos and experiences and hope that other people find it interesting enough to visit more than once. And I am someone that deals with anxiety daily. Go figure.
I am hoping that this space will be something I can work on to keep channelling my anxiety to positive outputs, where others can come and read/watch things they can relate to or at least make people laugh at the pure obnoxiousity that often comes out of my head/mouth.
Thanks for visiting. If you never visit again, please do one thing for me: pat every dog you see. Dogs are life.
