On May 19th 2016 I hit the publish button on my blog for the first time. I literally had no idea what I was doing, but fancied the idea of writing about things I like.
Fast forward to 1 year later, I have a bunch of new friends and a new found respect for what it entails to be a blogger. Although I knew I would need to invest time, I honestly had no idea just how much time. I’m not just talking about the preparation of a blog post, but things like:
- time taken to go to events,
- taking pictures (do I use my camera or phone, is the light right, what flat lay background to use)
- social media (and making sure I engage with other bloggers)
All this while having a full time job, and having family commitments. That being said, creating my blog has allowed me to be creative, and it’s something that is all mine. I haven’t posted as regularly as I would like, but that is something I hope to change. I still consider myself to be a newbie as such there is still so much more for me to learn. For now, I just want to acknowledge those I have met on my blogging journey, I had no idea the blogging community would be so friendly. If anyone is thinking about starting a blog I would say go for it. A year later and I have no regrets…this Leo is just getting started 🙂
