Why I’m a Festival Blogger
Funny story: many, many years ago I started a blog about festivals as my high school computer project. I was 16 and doing my GCSEs.
I set up a geocities blog about festivals and wrote online about my experience at Reading and Leeds Festivals.
It was something like geocities.com/vixakillah.
Unfortunately Geocities got rid of all the blogs. Makes me sad that I’ll never get to access that festival blog. Who woulda thought I would end up being a festival blogger for a career?
Definitely not my computer teacher, that’s for sure!
Since then I’ve travelled the world as a festival blogger, revelling in all the festival experiences I’ve had. I love festivals, and I hope to inspire you to do the same!
