My Story

useful contentI’m Jess, welcome to my blog! I’m a twenty-six year old self-diagnosed Instagram and brunch addict. So now we’ve got the important things out of the way lets get to know a little bit of the history behind Jess Who!

After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University with a degree in Photography in 2013 I started my first full time job, it wasn’t one which I enjoyed and I found I really craved a creative outlet to sink my teeth into. And that’s when Jess Who was born, my boyfriend actually came up with the name, I’m not that witty…Originally it was purely meant to act as a portfolio to showcase my passion for digital marketing to help me land a job in the industry (which it did) but over the five years I’ve been blogging it’s become so much more than that and a permanent fixture in my life.

“Whether you’re looking for a new lifestyle blog to add to your reading list, a touch of relatable personal style or a dash of interior inspiration then this might just be the perfect place for you.”

I’m originally from the North West but in 2016, after a three year, long distance relationship I decided it was finally about time to up sticks and move down to Nottingham to live with my boyfriend, Adam. We have just bought our first house together and are currently in the process turning it into a home we love (with limited funds)!

Alongside running Jess Who I also provide digital marketing services for creative business owners so if you’re looking for assistance managing your social media accounts, help writing blog posts or an expert in blogger outreach then I just might be your gal! In December 2017 I went freelance full time and I now split my time between managing client work and organising amazing events in Nottingham on behalf of Bumble.

Since going it alone I’ve learnt a hell of a lot about running your own business and the isolation that comes with working from home which is why I’ve become so passionate about supporting fellow freelancers and now pride myself on creating useful content for anyone thinking about taking the leap. My goal is to show the realistic side of being a business owner and offer guidance to anyone in the same position who set out to work for themselves not by themselves!

So whether you’re looking for a new lifestyle blog to add to your reading list, a touch of relatable personal style or a dash of interior inspiration then this might just be the perfect place for you. Take a look around the blog and let me know what you think, I’d seriously love to hear.
