One Year Blogiversary – That Feeling Inside is 1

So today is a super exciting day for me and my little blog. It’s been one whole year since I decided to take the plunge and start That Feeling Inside.

I actually feel a little emotional writing this which is so crazy. It just feels so bizarre that I’ve been doing this thing for a year. Time has flown by so quickly. When I first started my blog I didn’t really take it too seriously and I wasn’t really sure what I was doing with it. I had no real idea about the direction I was going to take my blog in or what I wanted to write about. In all honestly I wasn’t sure if it was going to be something I would stick to or if it would be just a passing fad. I just felt super excited after reading different blogs and decided it was something I wanted to try for myself. When I first started my blog I’d sort of just post as and when an idea came to me but over this year I’ve began to stick to more of a schedule and plan my thoughts and ideas a little more.

At first I felt super nervous and a little awkward about telling people that I knew about my blog and even about publishing certain things on my blog. I guess I just had this fear that people were going to laugh at me or take the piss a bit. Guess it’s the whole thing with putting yourself out there, it can be super daunting publishing something you’ve created into the world. Even now sometimes I feel a bit nervous about certain posts. I get worried that people won’t be interested in a certain topic or that I’m blabbering on a bit too much.

I’ve definitely felt a lot more confident with my blog towards the end of last year. I’ve started speaking to people I know about my blog more and have even mentioned that I have a blog in interviews. All of my friends have been so supportive of my blog and I can’t thank them enough. I find it hard sometimes to juggle a balance between work, life and my blog but it’s always worth it. I’m always finding new little ways to help myself be more organised and plan my time wisely. It’s so important to remember that it’s my blog too and that there is no need for me to feel guilty about not posting on a certain day or taking a break from social media. I think we are often a little too hard on ourselves and it’s something I want to focus on not doing as much this year. There have been a few occasions where I’ve stressed myself out when in reality it doesn’t matter if I publish my post a day later or have a couple of days off.

I feel like my blog has given me the chance to speak about things that are important to me. I feel proud of myself for putting myself out there. I feel like my blog photography has improved a lot since I first started as well and that my style of writing is starting to get better (hope this isn’t just me thinking this).

I have met so many amazing people through my blog. Through different social media channels I have discovered amazing people and amazing blogs that I absolutely love. I am so glad to be apart of the blogging community as they are some of the most supportive people that I know.

I’m not sure what the next step is for me. I know that at some point I’d like to try making Youtube videos as it’s something that I’ve always been interested in but always been a little too nervous/freaked out to do. I’ve recently started talking more on Instagram stories to try and build my confidence up a little bit and get used to hearing my voice on recording. I’m hoping that maybe this year will be the year I try out Youtube but we shall see.

I definitely want to continue with my blog and producing content. I’m hoping that this year I can be a little more organised and continue blogging about a range of topics. I already have a few blog posts planned for the next couple of weeks that I can’t wait to share with you.

I just want to say a massive thank you to all of you that do read my blog, all of you that like or comment on my posts. You have no idea how much it means to me and how chuffed I am that people have any interest in what I have to say. (I’m not crying, I swear).

Thank you again.

I feel like I should link you to my first ever blog post just so you can see how much times have changed.

I wish I could be sipping on cocktails to celebrate my blogiversary but instead I’m in work (sigh).

Hope you all have an absolutely amazing Tuesday.

    A great post – thanks for sharing your thoughts on your first year online with everyone – I work in entertainment, and every time you launch a show, you hope people embrace it – well, blogging is the same way – you put your thoughts and ideas out into the internet space and hope they are embraced by others…fun and frightening at the same time!

      Thank you and thanks for the comment. I’ve had an absolute amazing time this year blogging. Yes that’s a brilliant way to put it, it can be so scary sometimes putting out your ideas into the world but also so worth it when you get responces and hear other peoples stories!
