About Ellie Avalon

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to write. When I was younger I'd stay up way past my bedtime scrawling down every detail I could remember from throughout the day and I now have notebooks full of memories to look through (and cringe while reading!) As I got older, I found that my writing evolved into typing my thoughts, feelings and experiences up. Naturally, blogging became a great way for me to reflect and also share my words with others.

I'm now 24 and have found myself able to work freelance doing what I LOVE! My main work is in social media marketing for small business clients, but I also have a YouTube Channel (Click here to check it out) and write blogs on everything from mental health to my favourite foods, lifestyle advice/fun and travel tips

Life CV-

  • In 2017, I was invited through my YouTube channel to be on a show on the UK channel E4 called 'My Hotter Half' and the episode was aired in March 2018

  • I've now reached 1.5k subscribers on YouTube meaning my channel is monetised (even if it is just a couple of pence to start with- this was a huge thing for me

  • I was invited through my Instagram to Facebook HQ in London to attend a Cosmo Magazine X Instagram event celebrating their brand new LGBT+ section on their site

  • I have collaborated with fashion brands (e.g. Dykke and Array Apparel UK) to increase their exposure due to having a high amount of LGBT+ followers

  • I lead the Manchester Parade at Pride with Barclays Bank to promote their #LoveGoesTheDistance campaign in August 2018

Why did I start my blog?

For years, I feel that I have served as a useful source to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice for various topics from food to relationships, mental health, fitness and even social media due to running my own marketing business. I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. 

I have always loved to write and find it almost therapeutic to write about my passions, my thoughts, and curious wonderings about our world. After writing a previous blog, many people I knew encouraged me to start again and that is when I founded Ellie Avalon.
