1000 Posts & 3 Years Blogging

 


I’ve been quite excited for some time, as I recently noticed that I was about to pass 1000 blog posts! Yes, 1000 published blog posts on this very site! It seems like such a big number and I’m so proud to have reached it. Better yet, on the 9th of October I also passed my 3rd year blogging! It’s like a double celebration!

For a long time I told myself I was going to start blogging. I kept trying and failing, never sticking to the goal! On the 9th October 2011, I decided to start ‘Hope, Freedom, Love’. It was a place for me to share my thoughts and just little comments about life.  The name of my blog really represented my thoughts and aspirations of the time! I was mid-degree full of hope for my future and dreaming of an amazing career. I was living away from home and realising the freedom that I’d desired for a long time. Of course, I was also loving every minute of it. Chris and I had just moved in to our first home together and everything seemed so magical!

The blog took a bit of a change in January 2012, when I posted my very first blog post about beauty. It was about my love for high street nail polish, detailing my favourite brands.  From there on I was addicted to writing about beauty! I was a girl at University with very little money to spend. I loved writing about cosmetics that were cheap but great quality. Going into Superdrug and spending £4 on an MUA eye shadow palette was a real luxury for me! I never dreamt back then that I could have a makeup collection like the one I’m lucky enough to have now. Still, I like to think my goal hasn't changed. I like finding good value products, just with a little luxury thrown into the mix!

I’m really happy to have stuck to blogging for the last three years. It’s something I really enjoy and it gives me a release from everyday life. It’s my little hobby and my obsession with the beauty industry just keeps growing. I’ve gone from odd posts every now and then, to blogging every single day. I have a schedule and I make sure I have a new post every day at 7am! It’s just a joy to have this little space on the internet!

The best part is, that sometimes other people enjoy reading this blog too! Whether you’re a follower of this blog, or just stumbled across my blog for the first time; thank you! If you’ve ever left a comment, or replied to one of my tweets; thank you! Thank you for your constant support!
