Blogging Birthday – 3 Years On!

January 18, 2018

Hey all! It is emotional to think that I have had this blog for 3 years now and surpassed all expectations and resolutions – how time has flown eh? The support I have gained over the past 12 months has been immense and I cannot thank you all enough for just reading this post. As always, I look back on my resolutions for last year, and my goals for the next 12 months, so here we go!

Last Years Resolutions:

1. Achieve 1200 followers.

To be honest, last year I thought this would have been an absolute milestone to reach, but I currently have a total of 1450 followers! For me, that is a huge amount, with it not being my full time job and taking A – Levels at the same time.

2. Post More Makeup Reviews

Although I haven’t succeeded in this as much as I would have liked to, the posts I have created are becoming more “me” and the sort of things I enjoy writing about. Here are some of my favourite makeup posts of last year:

Milani Conceal + Perfect – Worth The Hype?

Halloween Laceration Tutorial

Makeup Brushes For Beginners

High-end Makeup Look

3. Have as Much Fun as I am Now.

Obviously, I’m not going to lie and say that blogging is easy, because it is definitely not and it can be very difficult to be motivated at times. However, 3 years on, I couldn’t imagine my life without blogging – community and spirit are irreplaceable. For anyone wanting to start a blog, I would hand on heart 100% recommend it!

2. Post More Regularly

3. Work On Improving My Photography

4. Connect With More Bloggers

Once again, I would just like to thank all of you for all of the support over the last 3 years, here’s to another one!

    Wow 3 years that’s HUGE! It’s nice to see bloggers who have been at it for longer because a lot of them tend to stop blogging for whatever reason before their 3 year mark. I’m heading there this summer, i love blogging it would honestly be really hard for me to give it up LOL
