Blogging: One year on

July 9, 2017

I never in a million years thought I would ever be able to have said that I have been blogging for one whole year, yet here we are. Considering the fact that I initially started my blog to get over a break-up and to find peace within myself, I am incredibly proud of how much my little space on the internet has grown into my own.

I remember sitting at my old computer at 10pm at night writing a whole rambling blog post about relationships, and hurt, and anything that managed to pour out of that head of mine that night. I remember thinking, ‘you know what, I’ll probably write one blog post and forget about this’…. and I didn’t. 365 days later and I’m still writing.

As much as a lot of Bloggers say this, I genuinely never thought anyone would read anything I published on here. I never imagined people to interact with me as a person, or read one of my blog posts and be like, ‘you know what? I agree with her.’ It’s because of blogging that I have grown in confidence, and as a person (ok, I know that sounds like a cliche, but it’s true).

I have never really had a ‘hobby’ as such that I’ve managed to stick at. I’ve always loved writing and ‘producing content,’ but never as much as I have this past year. It’s been such a whirlwind of an experience, and I can proudly say that, despite the lack of inspiration at times and wanting to give up, I actually enjoy blogging as a hobby. Because it’s a lot more than ‘being sent free stuff to review,’ or ‘sponsored posts,’ it’s something I genuinely love and vibe off. Note: if you’re thinking about blogging, don’t do it for the wrong reasons. Blog because you have a passion for the content you create, and you will love it a whole lot more.

And finally, I would like to dedicate this blog post to one of the most amazing, inspiring and strong people I have ever met- Em. If you don’t know Em, she was a blogger who I am proud to also call one of my friends. Because the thing about blogging is that you are part of a community full of real people, with real lives, and real feelings. Em courageously battled cancer for years before sadly passing away a couple of weeks ago, so I wanted to dedicate this blog post in her memory- because Blogging allowed me to meet Em and call her a friend. It’s a lot bigger than I ever  imagined it to be.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to anyone who has ever taken the time to read any of my blog posts, or supported my blog in any way. I am so humbled and grateful… and still find it incredibly crazy (in a good way, of course).

Here’s to another year of rambling blog posts, kicking anxieties ass, and writing about my favourite things.

Love and happiness always,

xo, Becca

  1. That’s great that you’re still blogging one year later! So many people give up. The community is so rewarding though, isn’t it? Really sorry about your friend Em, but it’s wonderful that blogging allowed you to have a friendship with her in the first place 🙂

  2. This was a lovely post and it’s great to see how far you’ve come with your blog in just 1 year! Definitely for me the best thing about blogging has been meeting new people and making new friends. It’s not just a hobby but a fab life experience xx

  3. Such a lovely post to read. Congrats on blogging for one year and here’s to many more to come. You have such a great blog and so inspiring. Keep doing you!

  4. I love reading blogs. I love yours also. It’s a nightly ritual that I have before bed, reading beauty blogs and save them. Keep writing and so sorry about your friend Em.

  5. This was honestly so great to read. I completely can agree with most things and I love what you said about how you should blog because you have the passion for it, not for the free things. I love your style of writing as always and you’re always true to yourself in your posts and I absolutely admire people like that! loved this girly! xx

  7. Congrats on your first year! Blogging is a great get away for me and it’s good to see how it’s helped you so much! Sorry about your friend, great post!


  8. I feel exactly the same. I’ll be hitting my one year blogging birthday in September and I honestly thought it’d never be something thag I would stick at.. yet here I am! Love your posts x

  9. Congratulations for achieving one year of blogging. Like yourself, I started writing a relationshippy post and haven’t looked back since. I am half a year into my blog at the moment and am excited for the future. I have never really had a hobby either and blogging has fulfilled that for me. I still find it weird as well that people read my content and enjoy it. Congrats again,
    Lois x

  10. I know how you feel, never thought I’d be blogging a whole four years later. It’s such a good way to release emotion and it can definitely be therapeutic. Such a lovely post to read, considering all the negativity going on with blogging lately
