This site has been around for 2 years now (WHAT? Where has that time gone?!)
It's been a crazy few years and I have decided to actually prepare myself for the anniversary post by adding to this post every month or so (starting in December 2015!) I feel like I owe you a lengthy post and what better way to do it starting now! In case I forget - thank you to all you readers/page viewers, we may not be a huge number, but the amount is just lovely for me!
To be fair, I have had my fair share of theme changes over the years. But I'm hoping to stick to this one! (Watercolour is a nice effect, huh?) Comparing my old posts to now, I have noticed a similar theme with my writing. Consistence is key! Obviously there are things that I still cringe at - obvious spelling mistakes, poor use of grammar - you know the usual that goes a bit wrong!
Are schedules even a thing?
Also, I most likely threw out the products straight after I'd make it! Kitchen supplies begin to separate on your bedroom shelf after a while.
However, other tricks such as the make up brush cleaner I still use to this day!
The blog has set me up for the next 5+ years - which is crazy! I've been accepted into university to study journalism and I've also secured a job which I really enjoy which is linked journalism too! I would never of thought that this would have happened when writing the first post 2 years ago. I thought I would probably go on for so long then soon give it all up!
The last few weeks have been very difficult for me. Including just recently and many times in the past I have just wanted to not bother anymore. I didn't think I could put enough content forward or felt like I was going nowhere with it. However, someone very close to me who sadly isn't around anymore told me this: "If you keep at it, you will get to your dream...all you need to do is a bit of hard work!" Saying this has really put my eye on the prize and actually get to my goals eventually!
I would really like to buy the official admin name for this site - I think that now is a good time to remove the Weebly part from the URL. Also, I've put some thought to possibly getting paid in the future but that will probably be a long, long time!
The main goal in the next year is to buy the URL before the 3rd year anniversary.
As I said before, I'm not receiving thousands of views a week - but the amount is great for me. So view count is never going to bother me - why should something I enjoy stop me if I don't hit a specific amount of views?
Thanks again and as always...
See you in the next blog post!
