This week it will be two years since I clicked the publish button on my first blog post. It feels like it has been longer especially because this last year I experienced so much growth in my personal life and through my blog. Since my one year anniversary last year I have transferred my blog from Blogger to WordPress, bought my domain name, collaborated with several companies on blog posts and enjoyed a sponsored luxury stay at a spa resort in Northern Ireland.
Looking back I feel like I have accomplished a lot within the last year mainly because I quit my nine to five job back in spring and for four months I was traveling and had time to focus on my blog. Now that I am back to working full time it will be interesting to see how I balance it all, plus I am in the midst of my yoga teacher training (update coming soon!). What my blog has taught me this past year though is how to manage my time and what to prioritize on my to-do list. Juggling so many passions can be overwhelming at times but I love putting together posts and letting my creativity flow.
Last anniversary I talked about how I found my niche in the blog world, this past year I have started to connect with more bloggers. Whether it’s through my blog or Instagram I feel like my following has become more personal. I know what adventures some of my blogger friends are up and it’s fun following along. I have also have a larger following and this has been humbling seeing how many people visit my blog and read my posts daily.
I’ve noticed a huge change in my writing over the last few months. It definitely feels like it has become easier for me to write and I have found my voice. When I sit down to write a post I become so immersed in what I am writing that after a few minutes I look at the word count and can’t believe how much I have to say. To be honest the writing part was a bit difficult for me at the beginning. Taking time to sit down was always the hardest part but now when I open up a new word document I immediately start typing away.
From the new layout to upcoming collaborations and travels, I love where my blog is today. Thank you to all my readers who have made my blog possible, those of you who leave thoughtful comments and read my posts all the way through. There are so many adventures I can’t wait to share with you!
