31 Day Challenge! Day 17! When and Why Did I Start Blogging?

Sunday 17 March 2013

According to my old blog, my first post was published on the 17th of November 2010. I'm fairly sure I wrote a few posts before then but deleted the blog that they were on, so I have no idea of when I genuinely started blogging. I started blogging properly in my first year of uni, and I kind of used my blog as a diary of sorts. When I first came to university I wasn't adjusting well at all, yes I made friends but I was terribly homesick and really wasn't enjoying the independence that came with being at uni! 

My blog became my place to vent, although looking back on it now, that wasn't a very good idea. Anyway I don't think I started blogging properly until November 2012 when I launched my Nail Blog. Basically I had been watching a tonne of Nail Art tutorials on Youtube, and reading a LOT of Nail blogs and I finally decided to start my own. I had a fairly good polish collection anyway but since then it has grown to well over 100 polishes... Then I joined the British Nail Bloggers Group and met a wonderful group of women, and I realised that there is such an amazing community for bloggers and my blog is now my favourite hobby!

At the end of January I made the decision to move my personal blog from Wordpress to Blogger, and to take it more seriously. I couldn't have made a better decision. My personal blog went from 0 followers to 44 followers on both GFC and Bloglovin. I am so proud of this. I am grateful for every single one of my followers, so thank you, from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog and giving me an audience to my ramblings! 

I hope to reach 100 followers by the end of the year, and to have regular blog features for you all! Thanks again, I love you guys! If you want to check out my other challenges then please click the links below:
