I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S BEEN A YEAR SINCE I CREATED MY BLOG!
I’m also so over the moon with how far I’ve come with it, woohoo!
Okay, so in November 2016 I started up my blog under the host of WordPress, I’m not going to lie, when I started I didn’t know anything about blogging. It just looked like a lot of fun so I thought why not give it a shot? I had no idea how much of a community there is surrounding blogging and how many lovelies gals also have blogs. When I started the only bloggers I knew of were ‘ZOELLA’ and ‘ZOELONDON’, due to that I thought there was no chance my little blog would ever get views, I don’t think I was fussed about that either.
When I first started off I took my blog photo’s on my Ipod touch with occasional bit of editing on PicMonkey, which didn’t really make a difference. I did own a Canon 1100D, so I eventually dug it out of the back of the cupboard, brushed off the dust and started to take slightly better pictures with it. Then in October I purchased an Olympus Pen EPL-7, which is totally gorgeous!!I now switch between that and my Canon for blog pics, depending on what I fancy using on the day. I would like to believe my pictures have improved MASSIVELY, no way am I saying they’re fantastic now but if you were to see the pictures from my first posts (that have now been deleted) you would see a HUGE difference!
I would like to believe, hope, pray, wish that my writing style has improved too. I’m not sure if anyone else notices a difference but I’m enjoying reading back my own posts a lot more now, does that sound really lame?
I’ve gone self-hosted recently with my blog which was a HUGE step for me, I’m totally in love with the new design and layout. I can’t get over how clean it looks, I still don’t quite believe that it’s mine. OH ALSO, I now have a super sleek looking header made by the amazing designer, @ktlgh on Twitter, it makes me so happy to look at. Basically, my blog looks a million times different to the blog I had on day one and I’m so proud with what I’ve achieved. (as little or huge you believe my achievement is i’m proud of myself, cute)
I AM OVER THE MOON TO BE WHERE I AM TODAY AND I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHERE I AM IN ANOTHER YEARS TIME!
I would love if you stuck by me and followed me on my blogging journey so we can see where this all goes together. I’d also love to hear how much you think you’ve progressed since you first started blogging!
