Looking Back On 8 Years


So 8 years. That’s how long I’ve been running this little blog of mine. I literally can’t believe it. It takes a lot for you to stick at something for that long. I’m actually writing this from the beach (see I am a real blogger I’m always at the beach). And that’s what has caused me to think about those 8 years. Nothing like the sea lapping 100m away to inspire you.
When I picked out my blog name and set up a blog spot all those years ago I never imagined that I’d still be doing it 8 years later. My blog was born out of a boredom with my university degree. I studied journalism and there weren’t many ‘creative’ elements to my course. I’ve never been the best student and I needed to do something that played to my strengths.
I would of never imagined the opportunities my blog has brought me. I don’t do this full time and I don’t think I ever will (never say never though right?). I’ve worked with some amazing brands, attended fashion week and have been invited to experience some amazing events. But the main thing I’m forever grateful for are the amazing friends I have met because of this URL. These amazing ladies have become some of my best friends and for that I am eternally grateful to my little space on the internet.
My blog has even helped me further my career, the amount of experience and skills I’ve gained from running it have been invaluable. Don’t ever be ashamed of it, add it to your CV like I did.
I just wanted to mark this occasion with a blog post and to thank all my lovely readers for sticking around. And hello to any new readers! I’m raising a glass here to the next 8 years and I hope you’ll join me!
