Another Monthiversary?

Here I am, holding my three-month-old baby Lavrax Blogs in my arms, thinking about how time flies. Wondering when I’ll begin having that love-hate relationship with it. Or wondering if I’ll be one of the lucky ones that bring up the perfect, non-problematic child (maybe. Hopefully). 

Today marks my third whole month of blogging (congratulations to me!) So if you’re here today it means:

  • You’re being nosy (that’s ok I’m nosy too)
  • You’re a supportive friend (and I love you)
  • You somehow accidentally clicked this link, but don’t worry, it’s fate. You’re meant to be here right now. Please don’t leave me. 

Just like I did last month, I wanted to tell you all about the achievements, struggles, joys, and advice, but one month wiser!

 Achievements

  • My first brand collaboration went live yesterday with the wonderful No Faux Vegan in the form of an amazing giveaway which you can join over on my Instagram I mean, who wouldn’t want to win this bag?

 

  • I have somehow managed to keep engaging with all of my socials, which is very hard with a 9-6, Monday-Friday timetable… 
  • And I have managed to build my social media following by a lot more than I expected!

What I’ve loved

  • I have connected with even more of you! We have some new people in our gang, including Chloe and Whitney, and I have made even better friends with some of you, like beth and Ethan
  • Most importantly I have loved the constant support despite having neglected my blog for the past month… Woops?

Struggles

  • We all had a bit of twitter drama… You know the one. 
  • Regular posts. My internship has kept me bust, and on top of that, my charger broke. So, blogging has been a hassle and I refuse to write posts on my phone… 
  • With fewer posts comes fewer views, I’ve struggled with it but I’m just happy to still have people checking up on my blog every once in a while. You guys are the best. 

Advice

  • Stay true to your identity when blogging. Don’t try to force content or fake a personality, people will be able to see through that. It’s you that’s going to get you your friends, your collaborations, and your support.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help! This month I needed the help of my friends to create my giveawaybecause it was something new. Thank you Abby and beth by the way. I also had to have my work friends take pictures of me, which was something extremely daunting as I have always been painfully shy. But I think they came out alright, and I can’t believe I did it. 

Thank you for the last 3 months, and if you have any advice for all of us baby bloggers,  please share!

    Happy Monthaversary! What an incredible update. You’ve accomplished so much in three months! I remember you started just before me and I’m floored by your success. I love your tip to stay true to yourself. I think it’s easy to get caught up in who or what you think you should be. I’m excited to see how large you keeping growing.
