I’ve decided to make this blog a little different. My personal blog claudiaboleyn.tumblr.com is a completely different vibe. As you know I’m a big feminist and I think a lot of that blog can be very overwhelming and serious, and angry, too, because let’s face it, once you get into social politics you cannot help but get cross if you have a moral conscience. But I am also mentally ill and sometimes I need a bit of a break from that. I get sent a lot of abuse and for some time I’ve wanted another blog where I can leave that harassment behind and focus on the other things that matter to me.
So this blog is not about my feminism. Feminism is a part of who I am, but I wanted a place where I wasn’t constantly having to fight my corner. Also, I know a lot of people that watch my content and listen to my material aren’t particularly into feminism (which I understand, although I would totally implore you to support it).
So this blog is going to be a place where I post art, poetry, fragments of history, updates about my album (which is still going ahead, but due to my own mental health, will be worked on throughout the year), photographs of me, photographs of things I think are beautiful and interesting, fashion, and literature.
In short, it’s going to be like the inside of my head, only without the stressful side of things.
Feel free to send me asks here at this blog, but I probably won’t be answering social justice responses. Please do be nice.
I hope through this blog I can come into contact with other Tudor history enthusiasts, art-lovers, music-makers, poets, and all in all interesting and wonderful human beings.
