One Year On | 12 Things I've Learnt From Blogging | Blogiversary

Blogiversary !!
Believe it or not, one year ago today; I started a blog. A blog that originally started with a link. A few months in, I decided I wanted my own domain and so I went .com!

12 months ago I had NO idea what I was doing. I hold my hands up to say; I actually wasn't one of these people who read blogs. I may have read two or three articles, but they were DIY posts. Back when I was getting inspiration on upcycling furniture.
Because of that, I really had no idea what kind of community was in the blogging world.

October I started the blog and in November I decided to start a Twitter and Instagram account.
It was Twitter that blew me away more than anything when I started. Straight away I was getting followers and the numbers went up everyday.
Thats when I started reading blogs, joining in with chats and well as they say: the rest is history. Or in my case, the rest is still being written.

I thought I would do a short post, outlining 12 things I've learnt since I started blogging..

1)  There are so many great people in the blogging world.

2)  I've made some lovely friends

3)  Ive gained more confidence

4)  Had the chance to work with some amazing brands

5)  Been introduced to brands I had never heard of before

6)  Attended events I never thought were possible

7)  Bloggers are lovely people

8)  Got back into photography

9)  Found a love for staging and trying to get the perfect shot

10)  Spending on things for a blog is addictive

11)  You can't go anywhere without stopping to take a picture of something


Although I started the blog on the 6th October, my first "proper" post was from when Terry and I returned back from Portugal. You can find that post HERE.

Yup to celebrate, I will be hosting a giveaway. More details will be coming soon, I just need to get a few more bits to add as a prize first.

How long have you been blogging for? Name something you've learnt since you started blogging.

Love Hannah xx

  4. I can't believe it's been a year already, happy blogiversay, hun! I have been blogging for two years (although pretty inconsistently over the first year) and I have learned so much. I can only agree with you, bloggers are lovely people, blogging is addictive indeed and it got me back into photography, too. I tried out my new camera the other and whilst I was taking pictures I was thinking about how they'd look on my blog haha xx
