Hey everyone, today is a very special day because it’s my blog’s seven-year anniversary! I cannot believe it because these past seven years have gone so fast. I still remember when I first started this blog which actually isn’t my first blog but it is the first blog that I have properly stuck to. I am so proud of what I have achieved over these past seven years and I have so many blog posts to look back on. When I first started this blog I didn’t tell many people about it and I even started separate social media accounts just for it so that my friends and family didn’t find out.
It’s amazing how far this space has come and how being a content creator is now a job for many people. I have never really wanted to be a full-time blogger/Youtuber as I enjoy having an office job and the social interactions that come with it. I started this blog when I was 17 years old and I have definitely learnt so much about running a blog. I still have lots to learn as I am in no way a perfect blogger. I have definitely struggled on many occasions to juggle my blog and my life. However, I have never thought about giving up or deleting my blog because it means so much to me.
There are two main things that I love about blogging and they are having memories to look back on and the friends you make. I have made lots of blogging friends some of which are online friends and others I have met online and then met in person. I am so thankful that I decided to start this little corner of the internet because I am so proud of it. It is the main reason why I decided to go into marketing for a job because I loved working on my little blog and YouTube channel so much.
Although this past year has been one of the least productive when it has come to writing blog posts I still have a huge passion for it and I am really trying my hardest to catch up on blog posts. I would really like to start 2021 up to date so that I can write up blog posts in real-time instead of in the past which I am doing at the moment.
If there is one thing I have learnt from this whole experience it’s to always give things a go because you never know where you may end up. Deciding to write a blog was one of the best decisions of my life so far and I am so glad that I did it. I can’t imagine what my life would be like without my blog or YouTube channel as they are a huge part of my life.
If you are deciding to start a blog then DO IT because you won’t regret it.
