Its My Amazing One Year Blogging Anniversary

Today is my one year anniversary since I started Blogging and over the past week I have been spending time editing and updating old posts. Looking back at where I’ve started and where I am now, I’ve really come a long way. Although I have not yet hit my peak as a Blogger, I accomplished a lot in one year.

The Journey

One year ago today I had no idea which direction my blog would have taken. Initially when I started, I didn’t know what my niche was but my focus was mainly lifestyle and travel topics. However, as time progressed fashion took the forefront and my passion for it is no secret.

Accomplishments

Website

When I created my site it was on the Blogger platform with my own personalised domain. Months later I wanted more control over my site so I switched to a self hosted WordPress website. By far one of the best decisions I have made was to make that transition and I would encourage other Bloggers to do the same. Free sites are limited in every aspect and doesnt have much flexibility. Self hosted sites are more costly but it is totally worth it as I am very pleased with the way my website looks.

Followers

My followers and readers have grown immensely and I have worked tirelessly, following all the tips and tricks to make this happen. Building a loyal following is very difficult as you may know, even today those numbers fluctuate. An area I am still struggling with is the growing of my email list and I have not figured out how to master it yet.

Collaborations

A few brands have reached out to me over the past few months who I was able to work with. As I continue to put out more content and work on growing my following I hope to score some sponsored posts.

Professional Photographs

In order to survive blogging, one has to invest in a camera or having professional photos taken. Thankfully I found Bruno who is now my photographer so my blog photos have improved.

Networking

During this year I was fortunate to meet other wonderful bloggers and I am satisfied that I was inspired by a lot of them.

Monetisation

This is something I learnt on the blogging journey as I had no idea what this meant prior to that. Not very rewarding at this point but I hope with time the small commissions amount to something.

Moving Foward

Blogging is a hobby for me and as long as the good Lord continue to give me health and strength I am going to continue. Also, I can’t wait to add another year then to look back and see what I have accomplished in 2 years. Someday I know all this hard work will be rewarding but until then, I am doing it for fun.

  • Trying out these Reusable Medical Grade Silicone Patches from @siobeauty in hope that they get rid of these fine lines “wrinkles” from my face ☺️ I’ve got the Eye & Smile Lift as well as the Browlift. Best part is that each patch is reusable up to 15 times 😁

  • So happy to have received @coverfx Power Play Foundation in the shade N100 and their Perfect Setting Powder complimentary @influenster. I used these products on my face and I was in awe at how beautiful it looked and lasted. My face remained matte just like I like it, even after sweating profusely 😅 it’s light-weight, full-coverage, long lasting and a little bit of product goes a long way! Can’t wait to post the review on my blog 😁 #soon Beautiful product and there are 40 shades to choose from! Slide left to see the results .

  • So I’ve been using the Dark Garden Collection from @aloette for the past few days now and I’m thrilled. 😁 Of course they are all aloe vera infused with a very mild fragrance. .

I love to use the Body Incense Dry Hand & Body Lotion all over my body after showering especially on evenings after a long day of work.  It’s not as heavy as a lotion but gives that smooth feeling that somehow disappears into the skin  but giving it a moisturized look and feel 🤷🏽‍♀️ Perfect product for pampering  yourself in the comfort of your home. .
.

As for the body wash it’s exactly how I love mine, thick with lots of lather. .

The lotion also has a thick consistency and doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky but rather buttery smooth. #sponsored #stepintodarkgarden @aloette #aloette #aloettecosmetics #beautyproducts #bodycare #bodylotion #review #reviews #reviewblogger #ad #spor #aloevera #aloe #candles #spaday #spa #spas #pampering #pamperingmyself #pamperingday #bodylotion #showergel #handlotion #bodyoil #skincareproducts #beautyproduct #beautyproducts #bbloggers
