One Year Blogiversary

Wow - I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for exactly one year already! 🎉 I’ve absolutely loved creating 86 different blog posts over the last year, but I couldn’t have done it without the help of many others. So I’d like to take a minute to say a few thank yous to some very important people… 😇

Thank you to my aunt, Jenny for her old camera and lenses and for inspiring me to do more photography (which is now one of my favourite hobbies!). 📸 It’s also thanks to her that I use Squarespace to create my blog - if you’re ever thinking of making your own website I’d definitely recommend as it’s so easy to use and has many beautiful and easily-customisable templates. 💻

Thank you to all of my friends (particularly my boyfriend Euan) for their support and encouraging feedback about my blog - it’s been so lovely to hear all of your thoughts on my different posts. 💖

Thank you to all of the other bloggers who keep me motivated to continue blogging and help inspire me to write new posts. ☺️

Thank you to every single one of you readers of my blog for reading my posts and leaving some absolutely lovely comments. 😘 I’m sorry I don’t have time to reply to them all, but I do read and truly appreciate every single comment that is left! It’s been lovely viewing stats and seeing how much my blog has grown in the last year, and that’s all thanks to you for reading my posts. 📈

Thank you to both my dad and my brother for putting up with me talking about blogging almost 24/7, and for their brilliant blog post ideas when I’ve been struggling to plan a post (it was thanks to my dad that I started doing mini music playlist posts!). 🎶

But most of all I’d like to say a huge thank you to my mum - I really couldn’t run this blog without her. ❤️ She photographs me for all of my fashion posts (and has become really good at using my camera in the process too!), puts up with me constantly talking about my blog and proofreads every single one of my posts before I publish, helping me to make any final edits and to ensure the posts are reasonably good. She’s also a brilliant advertiser promoting some of my posts on Facebook - it’s thanks to her that my Why You Should Try Yoga post was such a success! 🧘‍♀️

So thank you all so so so much! I absolutely love blogging and it makes me so happy that you seem to enjoy my posts too. It’s been such a busy year but it’s been brilliant to keep up with my blog at the same time. 📝 It’s opened up loads of communication with other bloggers from around the world and even other people from school who I’d not spoken much to before at all. 🌍 I’ve grown hugely in confidence since starting blogging and I really enjoy having my own little space on the internet to share anything and everything that I love. 😍 This blog really has become a major part of my life but it really does make me so happy, particularly when you give me positive feedback on posts.

I’m so looking forward to seeing what the next year brings for hefafa.me.uk and I hope you all continue to enjoy reading my posts. If you have any thoughts about my blog turning one or ideas for future posts then just let me know in the comments! 😜

 

Thank you! ❤️
