Hello everyone! An exciting post for you all today, as I’m sure you’ve guessed by the title.
The big news I have to share with you is that exactly one year ago today I created this little space on the internet which has transformed into my biggest hobby.
That means that for a whole year I’ve been sharing my beauty tips, splurging on makeup ‘because it’s for blogging’ and making some lovely supportive friends.
So, in honour of that, I’ve decided to dedicate this post to saying a huge thank you to each and every one of you – as well as taking a wee trip down memory lane.
My first ever post
I cannot even begin to tell you all how excited I was to publish my first beauty post. I spent hours on it, stuffing it full of my biggest tips and fiddling about with font sizes before hitting that scary button: PUBLISH.
Although excited I was also an impatient girl that evening. I kept checking my laptop (back then I had no idea there was a handy WordPress app) and waiting for any feedback I was lucky enough to receive after (accidentally) tagging my posts!
To my absolute glee I woke up the next morning with three likes and a follower, and I’m confident to say that I was the happiest person on the planet!
So… Although my first post is slightly cringey to say the least, you can read it here: Beginner’s Guide to Beauty
But this year hasn’t just been about me, oh no – without your lovely comments and support I doubt I’d still be doing this. After all, blogging’s all about the community, right?
Although I can’t possibly mention each and every person who’s made me smile this year, I thought I’d just thank a few of you who I’ve gotten rather close to.
Chloe: Thank you for being the first person to reply to a comment of mine and for making me feel so welcome in the blogging community!
Katie: Thank you for your lovely feedback on each and every one of my posts. You never fail to leave a supportive comment!
Karen: Again, you made me feel so comfortable blogging! I love catching up on your posts.
Annie: Once we get talking we never stop! Thank you for always brightening me up.
So… My thoughts on the year? My favourite moments? In a nutshell, blogging is the best hobby I ever turned to and dare I say it ladies and gents, it’s really changed my life for the better!
Thank you again for being so kind, supportive and all round beautiful!
I’ll speak soon!
