What a year I have had and it has completely flown by!

I can’t believe that I have been blogging for a YEAR!!! WHAT!! a whole year. 365 days you guys!! that is so crazy and I can’t believe it. I have had such an amazing year blogging and I have learnt so much.
In this year of blogging, I would say I have had such a lucky year. I have made such amazing blogger friends, online and offline.
I have worked with some amazing companies and made incredible relationships with them. I have also been paid for creating content, WHICH IS GOOD BUT ALSO STILL BLOWS MY MIND.
I have been to some amazing events and had such a brilliant time.
I have reached over 800 followers – THIS SHOCKS ME THE MOST. It baffles me so much that over 800 people have physically gone onto my blog and clicked follow! THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO FOLLOWS ME.
I started Youtube and so far I am loving it and have recently a lot of good feedback! check out my channel here
I have learnt a lot more about social media and blogging. I have learnt that:

  • People only show you what they want you to see
  • There are people in this world that will try to bring you down just to try and succeed.
  • There are very competitive people out there that only care about either the money or their followers.
  • People will have different opinions to me and that is ok, but if they are rude BLOCK THEM
  • Some people will think that because they have a bigger following that they are “better” than others and that is NOT the case.
  • Know your people. Make sure they don’t lie just to please a brand and that they are 100% honest
  • Don’t get stressed out if your Instagram / blog isn’t looking how you want it to look, you can always take time out to focus on it
  • Some brands don’t realise and understand that bloggers work hard for the content they create and that they wouldn’t get free advertising anywhere else so why is working with a blogger any different.

Thank you so much to everyone who continues to support me on a daily basis, whether this be liking a blog post, subscribing to my Youtube or commenting on one of my Instagram pictures. THANK YOU <3

    Congratulations on a year of blogging and all the progress you’ve made! Couldn’t agree more with that we should stay true to ourselves and our values, regardless of what we write about.xx

      Thank you! I’m glad that you agree. I think that is so so important. I would love to think that other bloggers only post what they want to post and not because they have been influenced to create that post by others. Thank you anyway! xx
