I've Been Blogging for a Year!

Isn't it crazy how time flies? Well scary in fact! I mean, we're almost in September. Where has this year gone? Oh and talking about year ... I've been blogging for that long now!
So basically we can call it my first year anniversary?!

August 2015 Blog Post 'OOTD'
On the 28th of August 2015, I decided to upload my first ever blog post. It wasn't that bad as I didn't actually let anyone know that I had published it. Now I share my posts on every single social platform I run! - Bit of a difference

September 2015 Blog Post 'Lifestyle | Relaxing Saturday Essentials'
My First Blog Post
It was just About Me. I didn't really know much about topics and didn't have any confidence what so ever to have someone picture me in an outfit - Which was my biggest aim for my blog - So I played safe and wrote About Me. At some point I would of written this on my blog so I thought I'd start off with it. That month I probably had about 10 views on my blog which I was very pleased with.

October 2015 Blog Post 'Fall into Autumn'
My First Serious Blog Post
This is when it all got real! I thank Ellie Ratcliffe for this as she persuaded me to make that jump from the little blog I was doing on the side, to something that was next level. For me, it was huge having to stand there and pose, act serious and look away from the camera all for a blog post. I thought I looked like an idiot and although I tried not to show it much, yes I was shy. Very shy.

November 2015 'Winter White Wardrobe' - Which was posted on Topshop Brazil Instagram. Whaaa?!
Then I uploaded my first ever serious blog post - Fall Into Autumn - with real photography photos. I remember sitting round Sam's, literally pooing myself. Wondering what people would think of me and what they would all say. Then I published it. Shared it via Twitter, Facebook & Instagram. The following week I had a few people asking me if I was going into modelling? I heard a few vanity comments too. Which is everything far from! Blogging isn't about vanity what so ever and nor is it modelling. It's something that people love doing to show their passion, style and share their experiences. Well, people use blogging for all sorts of things.

December 2015 Blog Post 'Topshop Boiler Blues'
So getting back to my first blog post. I had started my blog in the August and by the October I started to make it known by everyone else around me. I had over 1000 views just for that post! So I went from about 20-50 views a month, to 1000 views in just one day. That's when I realised it was starting to get serious! 

January 2016 Blog Post 'Luxury Air BNB in London'
My Most Successful Blog Post Yet
Going by my statistics, 50 Facts About Me | YouTube Video has been my most successful yet. Maybe because it was my first YouTube video and I was opening up my blog to a whole new platform. Since blogging I've learnt that using a variety of platforms helps to increase your status. Someone who doesn't like reading blogs may love watching YouTube videos. The more you put yourself up for, the more you'll get out of it.

February 2016 Blog Post 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun'
The other blog posts that have been most successful are;
Motivational Fitness Tips | Elle Sport

March 2016 Blog Post 'My Favourite Gym class with Pink Soda Sport' - JD Sports & Pink Soda Sport posted it on their Insta!
Don't Look Back
Since I started my blog, I've never looked back. It's the best thing I have ever done and I feel like it's completely changed my life. Not just in what I do, but also in my whole outlook on life. I love noting everything down that I do so that one day I can look back - like now - to see how far I've come. It's so rewarding! 

April 2016 Blog Post '50 Facts About Me YouTube Video'
I love coming home from work to parcels waiting by my door for me to open up and review. By the way, if you think it's all about getting gifts then you've got it wrong. Yes it's amazing but I never realised now much hard work goes into everything behind the scenes. I have learnt so much about the internet and how it all works. This is one of the biggest things to look at when running a  blog which not many people realise - I certainly didn't. 

May 2016 Blog Post 'London City Girl'
I love building new relationships with so many different people is amazing and probably is one of the best things about it! I love meeting new people, having girly chats and discussing our blogs.

June 2016 Blog Post 'Shangri La Hotel The Shard'
If you're thinking about starting up a blog then just go for it! If it's something that your passionate about and feel like you can keep it up then why not? 

July 2016 Blog Post 'Working Away From Home | Florence'
Take a look back at my previous blog posts that I uploaded around August, September & October last year. Let me know what you think!

August 2016 Blog Post 'August Beauty Haul & YouTube Video'
I have so much to look forward to and I know that it's only going to get better. 
This is the start!
