Every year just has a better ring to it than the year before… or the year before that…
The time has come to reflect on this year of keeping a blog.
My very first post went up on the 19th of February 2013. I was 15 years old and had no idea what my writing style was. So I kind of just rambled- to be honest has anything actually changed? It got two likes and three followers and I was over the moon with happiness. I was quite in active as I didn’t really know how the whole thing worked.
But I staggered through a whole year and gained over 300 followers- almost one for every day of the year. The Year a Versary post is a bit cringe. However, one of my favourite things to do is look at how my writing developed, not only in that year, but even up to today. I got six likes and two comments, and I was still happy.
Last year was the Two Year a Versary. I got 15 likes and three comments, and still so grateful. I had no idea where my blog would take me.
This year, my average number of likes would be over 50, I embraced my poetic side, opened up to a few people that I have a blog, got reached out to by a few PR companies, got shortlisted for an award, and connected with so many bloggers. Especially The Blog Squad! A group chat with so many helpful bloggers with different perspectives on life. To see who’s involved click here ❤
A successful year all around if I say so myself! I got a schedule- Fridays at 23.00 GMT. I began to edit my posts instead of posting in the heat of things. I learned a few tricks to help out the whole experience. I still value each like, comment, share or email. I’m so happy to share my experience with the help and encouragement of everyone who linked in and out with me.
My Haven of Procrastination is still going strong! Here’s to year Four!
