Four Year Blogiversary

Hey there! I'm afraid I am 2 days late on this post, but can you believe I have been blogging for 4 years? No, I can't either. I thought I'd write a post about my blogging journey, and also a chance for you to get to know me better.

It all started on November 2nd, 2015. I have always enjoyed writing, I used to write short stories and to this day I still buy loads of notebooks so that I can write. One day I decided to get my laptop out and create a blog. When I first set up my website I remember feeling extremely nervous but excited at the same time, I wasn't sure who would be interested in reading what I had to write.

November 2015 was also the same time I started my Youtube channel, where on there and my blog I create beauty, fashion and lifestyle content. It was very scary at first but I really enjoyed it, and I still enjoy it now. I'm not as active as I'd like to be as I have a part time job and a social life, however one day I would love to be a full time blogger.

In my head, I had it as quantity over quality. I would think I had to constantly upload so I'd type up a post in 5 minutes, add a random picture and upload so I had something to upload. One day I looked at my blog and I just fell out of love with it. I hated that every post was rushed, and I made it all about me. I wanted my blog to be a place where you could grab some helpful information and I made it about you too. There were far too many posts to get rid of and thought it all needed to go, so I made the tough decision of leaving my followers and readers and deleted the blog and created this one, hence why in 4 years of blogging there are hardly any posts on here. I am now treating my blog more like a business rather than a hobby, which gives off a completely different mind set, and I still get excited when it comes to creating content.

I love my blog, it has a long way to go and I am still learning new things like, when to upload, what my readers would enjoy reading, but the important and main thing is, I am enjoying it and loving it. I also created a new Instagram page dedicated for just my blog and Youtube channel, so if you would like to follow me on there my insta name is @kat.official_ where I upload everything beauty, fashion and lifestyle related.

- I would like to stick to a schedule, I always change it because I never know when the best time and day to upload is, so my days of upload will be on a Monday, and when I get used to the schedule I would like to start posting twice a week, so on a Monday and Friday.

- Create good content. I never know what would be enjoyable to read, I create content of what I am into however I don't know if it's content of what you would like to read, so I am always open to suggestions.

- Monthly wallpapers. I love designing and editing and would love to make wallpapers a monthly thing. So expect to see more wallpapers.

Thank you for everyone's support, I appreciate it. Have a great day
