If you’re reading this it means you:
- For some magical reason, have stumbled upon my blog
- You are a lovely supporting friend here to read my work ( I LOVE YOU )
- I linked you to read my latest blog post!
- Or you accidentally clicked on that link…
Today marks my second whole month of blogging (congratulations to me!) and I am so excited to share with you what’s been going on, what I’ve done, and where it’s led me.
I never expected to have made anything out of my blog or any of my social platforms, but I am now determined to make it into something great. Not big, just great.
I wanted to tell you some of my greatest blogging achievements in the past 60 days of blogging because I’m all for celebrating successes.
- I have managed to round up 720 of you on Instagram and 1,703 of you on Twitter.
- I was approached on Instagram by a small beauty brand to review one of their products!
- My Hollywood wax post was asked to be featured on the Luxury Wax Bar page – a beauty bar in London.
- I’ve got an apprenticeship which I wouldn’t have got without the experience of blogging! And I am loving it so much.
I also shared some of my favourite things about blogging, struggles, and advice in my last monthiversary post which I want to do again as I am now 30 days wiser!
What I’ve loved
- I can never say it enough. This community and the support that bloggers give other bloggers is everything.
- I love that there is so much potential for opportunities for bloggers.
- I love that it’s our own space, and pretty much our own brand. We have the freedom to create everything the way we want it.
- I have kind of overcome the whole issue of not having pictures for blog posts. But a struggle I’ve faced and that I’m slightly overcoming is taking my own pics. You can see my Instagram to see how I’m doing (probably not as good as I think).
- Finding a balance between full time work and blogging. My aim was to post 3 times a week and in hindsight that was a bit ambitious considering how tired I feel after doing literally anything.
- Find time to unplug. Once you get tired of looking at your computer/phone screen you’re going to need something to distract you. I have found reading, colouring, napping etc. so relaxing recently.
- I have heard so many people saying they feel like a “failure” as a blogger. You can be whatever type of blogger you want, don’t let other people’s blogs make you feel bad about where you are with yours.
I would love to know what you’ve loved about the blogging world, all your struggles, and all of your advice for a 2-month blogger!
Also, tell me all about your successes! Let’s hear them x
