This is my blog Actually Anna and I’m sure you’d like to know a little bit more about me. At least that’s probably why you clicked on the “About Me” page!
Why the name “Actually Anna”?
Let me first start with the name of my blog. The name Actually Anna exists of two parts: Actually and Anna. The last part is easy because it’s the first part of my first name and also the most commonly used nickname for me. This was the easy part when I was thinking about a name for my blog! The meaning of actually is nothing more than the definition of the word itself. I wanted to write about things I liked, give advice, and inspire you through my content. The name Actually Anna tells that story!
Who is Annaleid?
So now I’ve explained to you the meaning behind Actually Anna, but who’s the person behind the blog. Who is Annaleid? I’m a twentysomething-year-old Dutch girl, who grew up in a very small village. Now I’m living in the capital of The Netherlands: Amsterdam. I love to inspire you through my blog posts because I think there’s nothing better than someone you can relate to. I hope you’ll find my blog posts useful and that the advice that I give can help you along the way.
What type of content can you expect from Actually Anna?
On my blog, I try to not be a typical beauty blogger or fashion blogger. I try to be different and above all relatable. I try to talk about beauty and fashion in a relatable way as if you would get advice from a friend. Through my content, I hope it shows that I have a huge passion for beauty and fashion. Besides that, I also try to show what’s on the market and which type of products exist.
This way I also try to show a lot of sustainable options, without excluding any brands or products. I believe that every time you buy a product it’s a deliberate decision whether or not it’s sustainable or less sustainable. Maybe you have less to spend and you go for a cheaper less sustainable option and next time you can afford a more expensive product. I want to make sure that you know what’s out there and can make a conscious decision.
I’m not a full-time influencer, because yes I also have a Youtube Channel and I’m active on Social Media. My occupation besides being an influencer is Data Analyst. Yes, I’m also a nerd and I love it! If you’re asking yourself how the two relate, I’ll say to you: creativity, self though skills, and thinking out of the box!
