Happy Three-Year-A-Blog-Aversary

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!

  1. Congrats! Three years is a very long tie and you’ve come a very long way as well! 😀 Good luck for year four of your amazing blog!

  2. Wow this is actually so motivational and inspirational- I have only just set up my blog. Plus I’m 15 years old and still have no clue about my writing style! I hope I keep up my blog for it to live to three years x

    1. This is so sweet! I’m more than happy that this post gave you inspiration 😀 I wish you the best of luck on your blog (and hopefully I’ll be commenting on YOUR 3 year a versary ;D)
      Please don’t hesitate to drop me an email or comment with a question or query ❤ xx

  3. Wow! I’ve been blogging on and off on weebly but I wasn’t getting very far so I switched over to Worpress. I’m still trying to figure this whole thing out, and I haven’t been able to update a whole lot during the winter.
    You are a real inspiration to me that ‘I can do this!’

    1. Oh my! Thank you so much
      This was never intended to be an inspiration post, but it makes me so happy that it is!
      (To be honest I’ve hardly been able to figure this out, but it gets easier to hide 😉 )
      YOU are a real inspiration that “I can keep doing this” 🙂 ❤ xx

  4. Congratulations on completing three years and also the 1400+ followers you have. Doing this much even while you’re in your teens is a testament to your grit and quality. Kudos!
    Have a great week. Happy blogging. God bless. 🙂
