Guys!!! I’ve been banging on about this for a few weeks now, but today is a year exactly since I started my blog (Kinda, I made it the 30th but told everyone about it 31st December (Oh well))!
I’m so pleased that I can say that I’ve been doing this for a year, there’s been a lot of difficulties with the blog, I mean at first when I started it I was so worried but got amazing support from friends and family. Then, a few months into writing my blog there was trouble from a few people at school telling groups of people that used to bully me that I was writing about them, of course this upset me, I was worried I was going to get bullied again, so I didn’t write for a few weeks. But then I thought about it, it’s my blog, I can write what I want. It was fine for a bit after that, the support was great, but then of course, when I thought nothing could go wrong, I was getting called names by a group of boys who found out about my blog and so the blog was made as a joke. Even though this happened I still wrote blog posts. So here I am, a year on, able to say that even though I was getting grief I still carried on.
Some may read this post and think, “So what, it’s just a blog.” But it’s my blog, it’s something that is personal to me, that’s why this means so much. I’ve been told throughout the year that I have helped quite a few people, that means so much to me, it was he aim when I started it, so I’m very pleased! I found out today that I’ve got 1000 views on my blog, which is amazing for me, I’m literally so happy. I don’t know what I was worried about when I started. I enjoy writing for each Thursday, it’s now became a hobby.
A massive shout out to all the amazing people in my life that have been really supportive with my blog and everything else, not just this year, but the past couple of years, thank you!! (You know who you are.) It means so much to me! Also a big thank you to the 1000+ people that have been reading my blog, thank you so much, it means so much!
My 2015 in pictures:
2015 has definitely been one of my toughest years yet. However, I’ve definitely learned a lot and enjoyed myself along the way. It’s been one of my silliest, funniest, greatest years yet, there have been times when it was tough but with the support from my amazing friends and family it has been great! A few highlights were definitely starting up my blog, going to the young carers festival, prom, spending my summer with friends, getting my GCSE results, having a get together for my birthday in the rain (Sorry guys, I didn’t realise it was going to rain!!), starting sixth form, having a fantastic Christmas and to finish it all off, celebrating a year of this blog!
It’s official, it’s one year since I started blogging! One year since I decided I’d stick up for myself more. My confidence has improved and I believe I am turning into a stronger person mentally. Thank you to everyone who has supported me this year, it means so much, so thank you! That’s it from me this year (Ha get it, cause it’s 2016 tomorrow? Sorry, that wasn’t a funny joke aha)!
Happy New Year! Hope your 2016 is great! Have fun with whatever you are doing tonight to celebrate the new year. Best wishes. Much Love – Alison xx
