My 1st Year of Blogging in Numbers

“Only a small percentage of blogs survive their first year”

I’m so proud of not being part of the small percentage because I’ve now been blogging for a year! Throw your confetti cos it’s a P A R A D E!

I remember starting this blog with absolutely no idea how blogging actually works. All I wanted was to write and share my story with others to help them get through it. That was a year ago today, on Thursday 12th May 2016. To test the waters that are the branches of blogging, I decided to post a review of my favourite facial cream. That didn’t go too well.

The post that really got my blogging career taking off was this post about my depression. The amount of messages and comments of support and love from people I knew and also strangers gave me hope and encouragement to do more blogging.

My life changed. The opportunities increased. And now, we’re here*…

The number may not be too big for some that have been blogging for about the same time (if not less) than me, but I’m so proud of achievements in just a year. Cheers to an increase in numbers, love and my blogging 🙂

* some numbers are to the nearest 10 or 100

  3. So happy for you, I started my blog in November 2016, so I found this article very motivational. My first post was about Depression and how to help someone who is depressed. Thank you for motivating me to don’t give up blogging. Love ❤


    1. I don’t pay for anything. I try to find themes that most identify with what the blog is and I just go with it. As for banners and such, I use, really easy to use 🙂
