Hey everyone 👋 real quick before I start can I just say that this is the FIRST time I’ve combined a follower count post 😍 …I must be doing something right with this blogging thing cause my follower count has been growing daily 🙌 …actually you know what? I’m gonna start giving myself some credit cause all these new followers are coming from somewhere & FOR A REASON, so I’m not gonna put myself down & say its all luck cause honestly its a lot of hard work too 💪. I am so incredibly THANKFUL to each & everyone of you for allowing me to keep hitting these milestones.
“Started from the bottom now we here”
I remember when I first started blogging I barely knew anything about it. All I knew was that bloggers write on a web page, like their own webpage that they create according to however they want & that appealed to me a lot, as I’ve always loved writing essays (just ask my HS english teachers 📚). I didn’t know much else about the behind the scenes of the blogging world though 🌍 like I NEVER even used to add any tags to my earlier posts such as VISIBLY CLEAR® Skin? or Combination-Oily Skin?💧💧💧 . Forget tags I didn’t even have categories, I had absolutely no structure/layout whatsoever 😅 Which makes me even prouder of where I am with my blog now 🙏 . Sometimes I wish I had screenshots of my blog over time ⏲ but sadly I don’t. It doesn’t really matter though because I KNOW the hard work that went into creating this space & my followers/fellow bloggers know of the hard work & dedication required too ☺️
…to everyone of you who has been here from day 1, week 1, month 1 🗓. Thank you to those of you who’ve been here from before my blogging hiatus back in summer ’16. Thanks to all my new followers who joined my journey from January THANKYOU. Talking about January can you guys believe me when I say I didnt create any social media accounts for this blog until I had it for nearly a year 😱 I joined Instagram in mid-february & trust me when I say this, as soon as I joined I asked myself what the hell I was doing this entire time 😂 , 2 weeks after joining I joined Twitter & THATS when stuff really blew up.
The importance of social media
I’m pretty sure I’ve said this in my posts before & I’ll say it again, social media is a powerful FREE tool that everyone should use to help reach a wider audience, now people that read my blogposts arn’t just wordpress users, they’re blogspot users, or personal domain users. All I know is that Twitter has been incredibly useful in increasing the amount of referrals back to my blog, as my blog is now reaching a MUCH wider audience as I’m now also sharing another platform with them. Thats why its so important to have multiple platforms in the blogosphere 🌍
Let me finish off by saying
THANK YOU once again! I feel like I’ve been going on & on just rambling away 😅 So to all my old & new followers thank you! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post… If you did then please don’t forget to ‘like’ the post down below 👇 & follow me for more! 😁 Thankyou 💙
