Today is my blog’s 2 year ‘anniversary’ and I can’t quite believe it’s come this far to be honest! I started this blog after a trip to Brighton with my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day, sitting on the train wondering what to do with all of the photos I’d taken. Since then I’ve come on the most incredible journey, becoming a part of this insanely supportive community and discovering my passion for blogging and social media.
It’s strange to celebrate a blog’s anniversary, but to me today symbolises the start of me taking my own wishes and desires into consideration instead of going along with the path that had been chosen for me by family, and this is so important as I equate my blog with me becoming independent in my decision making, and taking matters into my own hands. I have built my blog and my social media myself, put in the hard work and effort and reaped the rewards. I didn’t do this on the back of anyone, barely helped by anyone, and at times feeling like this venture was really opposed by people. Blogging is more than a hobby for me- it’s proof that I have what it takes to see my dreams through and make something of myself.
I cannot wait to see where the next year, two years, even five years takes me. I am throwing myself into this work and am so grateful for the benefits it gives me.
