One Year of Blogging! (+2800 followers!)

As the title says, today, I have been blogging for a whole year! I posted my first post Hi, on March 6 last year. To celebrate, I bought a little celebratory cupcake from my favourite bakery! So scattered in this post, enjoy this photoshoot of my and my cupcake.

For this post, I thought it would be fun to go through a highlight reel of sorts of my blog!

When I started blogging, I talked about my recent travel adventures, first to Sydney, and then to Peru. In April, I branched out into talking about my life, more specifically my recent wedding! I started baking again, and since then, I’ve never stopped.

In May, I reached 500 followers. I started the A-Z Challenge series, where I talked about a television series I liked, starting from A and ending with Z. I also began sharing my weekends with all of you, and continued making my blog more personal.

My blogging hit an extreme during this month. For the whole of the month, I was blogging three times a day. Before this, I blogged one-two times a day. In June, I started my Have You Met series. I also started filming videos on top of blogging. I’ve done at least two a month since then.

In July, I reached 1000 followers and went self-hosted. In August and September, I began branching out and doing more beauty and fashion related posts. With our new place, I had a space where I could take proper OOTD posts. In October, I reached 1500 followers. I began a photo challenge to learn more about my DSLR. Since then, it’s been my go-to for taking photos for my blog.

In November, I scaled back to posting just once a day instead of twice. I posted a mixture of baking, beauty, lifestyle, photography, and rambles. These are still my main topics I blog about. In December, I continued blogging everyday. I blogged about my birthday, Christmas, and all the summer things. I also reached 2000 followers! In January, I entered the new year completely full of ideas of what I wanted to blog about. I included DIY into my ever growing topics for blogging. This continued into February.

Now we’ve made it full circle! I have much a clearer idea about what Life of Angela is about. At first, it was just a place to write about my travels. Now, it’s a collection of thoughts, memories and experiences that I share in my corner of the internet. My small blog has recently just hit 2800 followers!! I have learnt so much during my time blogging. I’ve met many amazing people all around the world. I found so many new interests, and rekindled lots of old interests.

Thanks for being a part of this journey! Here’s to another year of blogging!
