By this time next week, my blog will be 5 years old and I can’t but wonder how I actually got here.
This blog was borne out of pain; someone backstabbed me and the best way I could vent my pain was in writing, and this the journey began.
After an unexpected amount of positive responses, I decided this blogging thing seemed cool and created a realistic blogging timeline – which was weekly (even though I was fairly free at the time, I thought longterm to when I’d be back to my usual busy self). I’m glad to say that for the past 5 years, I haven’t missed a blogpost!
When I first started, lifestyle blogging wasn’t yet an established thing so I didn’t have a niche, I was just writing as I felt lol, yet readership continued to grow and shortly afterwards advert requests starting coming in.
My blog is like my baby, it’s grown to build a brand, it’s read by people all over the world, even in countries where I’m certain I don’t know anyone in (having worked in an international organization for a while, I have made friends who live in each continent of the world – well except Antarctica, for now haha). I’m super grateful.
As noted by how it started, I can’t say I know exactly where I’m going with this beloved hobby of mine that has come to define a lot of my external perception, but I am genuinely excited at the prospects it could bring in the near future.
Countdown to September 4th!!
Till next time,
