My 1st Year Of Blogging

Hey guy’s hope you are all having a good week so far. So today I want to wish my blog a HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY! Yes today I have been blogging for a whole year! I can’t believe where the year has gone so much has happened within one year that it only feels like it happened 5 minutes ago. (Do any of you ever feel like that?)
 
I have met some amazing people through blogging and I’m so happy to have them all in my life and being able to call them all friends or my term MY BLOGGER FRIENDS! We all get along so well and when I met them all at events it was great knowing that other people enjoy blogging just as much as me and seeing how far people have come with their blogs and giving me advice for mine and helping me to where I am today.
 
So I wanted to share with you all what I have learnt from blogging and the amazing events I have been to so far and about the amazing people that I have met as well.
SO HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY TO MY BLOG.
What I’ve Learnt

It's addictive
It amazing how quickly the blog will take over your life. I pretty much spend each day thinking about my blog and catching up with my followers and other blogs that I love. It's really become the main focus of my life!

It's a lot of work
Blogging requires A LOT of work. Seriously! It's not that the writing takes up all your time it's all the little things you do behind the blog, building your website, replying to e-mails being active on social media. It all adds up!

It's important to meet other bloggers
One of the best things that has happened to me in my year of blogging was meeting other bloggers. They provided me with advice and guidance and opened doors to some fantastic opportunities. I was so lucky that I have meet the girls I know today I love them all to bits and they mean a lot to me. if you want to meet other bloggers your best chance is to go to blogger events such as Christmas Markets, Press nights and many others!. The girls I have met from my local area are the nicest people I have met and I'm proud to be able to call them true friends and will be there for me if I ever need help with my blog or even outside of my blog.  


Don't publish a post as soon as you've written it
When I first started my blog I tried to publish a new post every Friday as I thought it would encourage people to log on to my site and read my new post. It got to the point where I started rushing to write my post to get something published. When I redesigned my blog I found so many spelling mistakes in my earlier posts and even some of my friends told me about my mistakes in my posts as well. So now when I write I a post I make sure to write a post, give myself a breather and come back to it later to finish it off.

PHOTOS. PHOTOS. ALL THE PHOTOS
Your blog should always have a strong image on each post that you write I used to struggle so bad with my photos and when I look back now I'm shocked on how bad my older ones are. But I have leant so much about editing them just by making them lighter and getting the write angle and using sunlight to get the perfect photo and now I'm so much more happy with the photos that I take.

People leaving comments
Its always nice seeing that someone has left a comment on your post knowing they have given there time to read and leave you a comment is so sweet. I always reply back to everyone that leaves me a comment and I also go and visit there blog and read there post and leave a comment back as I think is great way to show your support just like they have shown you support on your posts. So once a week I always spend a evening visiting blogs and leaving comments.

Social Media
I have never been more addicted to twitter and bloglovin. I use most of my mobile data now on social media when I out and about to keep up to date with my followers and new posts people have published on there blog and replying back to comment etc.. Social media to me if a another good way to share your post you have wrote to let you followers know you have a fresh on post on your blog


The next step with my blog
There is so much more I want to do with my blog this year and the first one is to start my YouTube Channel so many people have there blog and a channel as well and I think after doing this for a year it would be great to start my next challenge which is my channel. I have been thinking about it for the past couple of months now and I thought if I don't try I wont know how it goes so I will be publishing my first video very soon so keep your eye out on my blog and social media.

So tell me what have you learnt from your first year of blogging? Comment below and let me know how your getting on even if you are new to blogging I'd love to hear from you all.
Thank you so much for reading my post I really hope you enjoyed todays post and once again
Happy 1st Birthday to my blog!!

Until next time.
