It’s my blog’s one month-aversary today!
I’m a huuuuge anniversary person; think Leslie Knope on the biggest sugar buzz and you might be halfway there. I can think of anniversaries and reasons to celebrate the tiniest little day, I love commemorating things!
I honestly didn’t think I’d get to this point as I know that I set out to commit to things ie a diet, exercise, some big lifestyle change, and after a fortnight I just end up slipping out of it until I find I haven’t done it for months. I actually think that blogging has really helped with this; because I have set days to blog, and then any days in between when I have something I really want to post, it’s made me more committed to the routine of other aspects of my life. I’m exercising more, albeit in my tiny uni room, I’m eating a lot better because I’m actually endorsing this lifestyle so I kind of have to live up to it. I’m really surprised at where blogging has taken me and didn’t anticipate this kind of change in my life.
I don’t find this stressful in the slightest, although I should probably put a bit more effort into the blog in terms of theme and such. I’m just having such a lot of fun building it up that I didn’t realise a whole month has gone by!
Now that I’ve reached this milestone, I think things will start to get very different. I was using the month mark to figure out whether this was something I really wanted to do, and now that I’ve made it to this point I really think that it is something worth investing my time into, and something I’ll get a lot out of in return.
I have so many blog posts planned for the upcoming months, although this list is always changing because I make new plans and want to post about stuff I’m doing, or I just have even better ideas that I want to share with all of you. I know I should probably stick to one certain subject, but I think ‘lifestyle’ kind of encompasses everything so for the time being I can get away with being quite general as I don’t really know what I want to mainly write about yet. I’m really enjoying all aspects of it; recipes, reviews, beauty, hauls, my general musings about days out in London or elsewhere… it’s all just been the greatest experience and has really changed a lot of things in my life in a very positive way. I feel like my outlook on things has become a lot brighter and more positive now for some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on, but I know it’s definitely down to having created this blog, and if my life can change this much in one month then I can’t even imagine what it’ll be like this time next year!
Thank you for supporting me and making this whole experience so worth it!
