One Year Blogaversary

I did it guys! I made a WHOLE year of blogging.

I mean...I wasn't constant with it, but I made it! I just want to start off by thanking you all for the amazing support you've been giving me recently and throughout. Whether it's by reading my blog, commenting, or just saying nice things. Every ounce of support is appreciated and doesn't go unnoticed. 
I started blogging this time last year because I was inspired by my sister who was and is doing so amazing for writing about what she loves, I wanted to feel as proud of myself as I did her. So I did it, set up my blog, I can't even remember what it was called to begin with. But I'm certain since starting blogging the name has changed about three times and I've finally found a keeper.

When I started blogging I didn't think that many people would be interested in what I had to say, what I liked to wear, where I traveled or ate but I couldn't have been more wrong. The support has been overwhelming, especially from friends and family who I thought wouldn't take that much interest because, 'what's blogging to them?' but again, couldn't have been more wrong.

Since starting, I've only been to two blog events but they were such amazing events that made me look forward to being invited to future events and I've actually got one coming up this Thursday (happy dance). Another thing I wasn't expecting was to have so many collaboration opportunities! Holy moly, do I feel blessed. It's been amazing, especially the last two months. I've had people actually reach out to me because they like what I do, which feels like the greatest achievement of all. Knowing people like and want to support what I do.

I have so many big plans for this blog that I'm working on. More travel posts is something I'm trying to include as there's so many places on my bucket list, more food posts because half the time if I'm not sleeping or watching netflix I'm eating and also some more personal life posts because I love sharing my lessons learnt with you guys who might be going something similar to me. Blogging has given me the chance to interact and meet with so many amazing and inspiring bloggers, you guys are seriously so hard working, sweet and supportive, you all deserve the world and I can't wait to meet more of you. The twitter community is a major part of the reason I'm constantly motivated to continue blogging. So again, thank you!

Blogging has helped me to begin to love myself for who I am as a person and to embrace the way I look, when I started to blog I would be so uncomfortable in front of the camera that I would want my sister to take pictures of me from the neck down and she would be like 'whats wrong with you?' I was just so conscious of what I looked like and what people would think. But not anymore, I'm fabulous darling!

There wasn't much reason behind this post, I just wanted to reflect on my year briefly and to thank you guys so until the next post,
With Love Yossy x
