Hello everyone, today 1 year ago I began blogging. So today I thought I would just reflect over everything and how I and my blog has grown over the past year.
So I began my blog on the 8th April 2015 at around 11pm. I wrote my first post that same night welcoming people to my blog and explaining what my blog was. 5 days later I wrote my first official blog post called ‘W7 VS Laura Geller Foundation’ I began writing blog posts every 2 weeks, I then stopped doing that and began writing weekly which I preferred so much more! When I started doing this, more people were visiting my blog and I was ecstatic! I remember getting my first view from Ireland about a month and half after beginning my blog as it was not just from UK and USA (which is were most of my views were coming from at the time) after 2 months of blogging I got my first follower who wasn’t a friend or a family member, I literally had to scream quietly as everyone in my else was still asleep! After that first follower slowly I gained more followers and my views gradually went up. I then began posting PLL (Pretty Little Liar) theories which enticed more people to my blog because I was doing PLL theories on Saturday and then a blog post on Monday so for about 3 or 4 months I was posting 2 blog posts a week.
7 months later I had a following of about 30 people and began collaborating with brands, which I really appreciated that they wanted to work with me seeing as I am such a small blogger. In November I began working with Tokyo Treat for 2 collaborations. In February I done a collaboration and giveaway with Kawaii Box and most recently a dress review with ‘Boutique Of Molly.’ I am so grateful for all of these opportunities which I have had to help out brands and so grateful that they accepted me and wanted me to do these reviews for them.
So a year later I have 54 followers and 3 email followers on my blog, and I honestly couldn’t be happier! I am so thankful to every single person who has clicked ‘like’ on a blog post every person who has commented and every person who likes my content that much that they have clicked that ‘follow’ button. It honestly makes my day!
I’ve never set a goal for my blog, like “I want this many likes on this post, I want this many followers by the end of the month etc…” because I feel that if I do that it will take away from the creativity and content and my blog will turn into something that I don’t want it to be, for example a chore. I blog because I want to, not because I feel I have to and this is why I have never set goals.
So lets make year 2 of my blog even greater and see what we can achieve this year! Thank you to everyone who supports me I really appreciate it, thank you. So if you want to be part of my blogging journey click that follow button because I do reviews, hacks, tips, makeup, beauty and lifestyle posts and occasionally get 2 brands and make them battle against each other (metaphorically) So, if you liked this post then give it a like and comment down below. A new blog post goes up every Monday at 5 pm, so I’ll see you then! Lots of love; Alisha xxx
