Blogging for 1 year! Happy 1st Birthday Blog

It’s officially a year since I started blogging! Therefore, happy 1st Birthday to my blog. In the past year I have learnt a lot about myself from blogging. I’ve made some amazing friends but most importantly, I’ve had fun. So, to celebrate this occasion I thought I’d share 10 things I’ve learnt from blogging for a year.

Blogging is hard

Maintaining your blog whilst working/studying isn’t easy. I hold my hat off to Bloggers who manage to successfully balance this. I’m still not there a year later but I’m working on it. The goal is in a years time to be successfully posting two blog posts a week.

You will change

The person who started this blog a year ago isn’t the same person writing this. I’ve changed, grown up I guess you could say. I have had to  learn to juggle studying and a part time job as well as blogging when I can. As well as this, I’ve also been through a lot of personal things in the past year but having my blog has helped me to stay positive.

Your blog will change

My blog started off as a beauty blog and over the past year has evolved into a platform for sharing my life, achievements, struggles and general rambles. Along with the focus of my blog changing my photography style has changed too.

From this my first ever picture featured on my blog.


To this

100% a complete change in focus but I love taking photos of animals and my holidays and would prefer to do that any day over beauty products. (This doesn’t mean that I won’t take beauty related pictures, I just prefer photographing animals and other things more)

Through blogging you will make some amazing friends

As a result of blogging, I’ve met some amazing other bloggers. I just want to say a HUGE thank you to these people as they have supported me and my blog. Also, they have been there for me no matter what. Thank you girls!

    Hey Brooke!! It’s so wonderful that you’re sharing your blogging journey with us. I actually really liked the first picture you took, but it’s so hard to try and stay with one genre. I’m about to read your Disney story!!! Love your blog.

    Happy birthday to your blog! We started blogging very similar times as my blog turned 1 in May 🙈 I definitely agree that blogging is hard and trying to juggle everything is such a challenge.
