I'm definitely over reacting to this, but I'll get on with the real reason I'm writing this today. I wanted to say thank you, have a think about what's changed and I kind of want to have a little reflection on the past year.
I can remember the day when I started my blog, quite vividly actually! I was sat in the armchair of the upstairs living room (which is now my bedroom btw) and it was quite late at night I think (or I just had the blinds closed because of the sun!) and I had NO IDEA what I was doing AT ALL! I had no clue! Plus, I hadn't actually asked my family before I did it, so whenever anyone walked past the door, I would close down the tab and freeze - this actually carried on until about January of this year! I chose the simplest template and had no clue whatsoever I was doing but I just went with it! But look how far we've come! I've actually been writing a list [on my phone] of all the milestones and that I've achieved, which I wrote about doing in my post 'Motivation for Bloggers' post, back in March. But here are some of them:
28th February 2016 - 1000 Instagram followers
23rd March 2016 - 200 Twitter Followers
3rd April 2016 - 5000 Total Pageviews
12th June 2016 (15:56pm) - 50 Bloglovin' Followers
12th June 2016 - 10,000 Total Pageviews
29th June 2016 - 100 Bloglovin' Followers
2nd July 2016 - 150 Bloglovin' Followers
6th July 2016 (20:49pm) - 500 Twitter Followers
9th July 2016 - 200 Bloglovin' Followers
20th July 2016 - 250 Bloglovin' Followers
Now, that's just insane to me. How on Earth did I manage to gain 50 blog followers in 7 DAYS?!?!?! WHAT?!?! Anyway, I appreciate all of you so much. All the lovely comments you leave really make me smile - especially when I get to hear about your own experiences similar to mine in them!
Also, in my year of blogging, I have written some posts that I am especially proud of/happy with, so I'd like to list them and you are more than welcome to read them!
Anyway, that's been one year and I am actually quite proud of myself for sticking with something for this long! I do need to say a big thank you to all of you for reading my posts and sticking with me through this and to my TTATB girls, you all have really made me have reason to do this, so thank you.
Parle bientot et Je t'aime,
