As you can probably tell from the title, I’ve hit a very important milestone here on this blog. Today, the 20th of September, marks 6 months since I first hit the publish button on this here blog.
Wow, I honestly can’t believe it’s been this long! It really doesn’t feel like that long ago when I wrote my first post. As cringy as it was, I don’t regret any of it, and I feel like along the way, I’ve really come out of my shell and become myself here. I feel like if you go back and read my old posts, then you’ll definitely see a massive difference, not only in the way that I write, but what I’m actually writing about.
I feel like day by day I’m becoming a little bit less awkward and that was only possible with the help of you guys. If it wasn’t for your constant love and support and words of wisdom, I would have made all the wrong choices and probably end up being a wreck! I’m glad I had you guys here with me, on this bumpy ride, every step of the way. I also hope that maybe some of you could relate to these posts and not only laugh and my pathetic attempts at life.
A blog can be such a small part of somebodies life, I know some people only like to showcase the good bits of their life and for a while, I tried to be like that. I’m so glad that I snapped out of that because now I feel like you guys are life my real life friends! You’re with me through the ups and downs and rollercoaster that is my life, and I feel like you know me better because of it.
I made this blog as a place to rant and whine and just say the things I couldn’t in real life. I never in a million years expected to meet such brilliant, funny, amazing, supportive people who have helped me, not only through the awkward teenage stages, but the deep meaningful stages, where all I wanted was somebody to listen. You guys really delivered and for that, I’ll be eternally grateful.
During my time here, I’ve read so many amazing blogs and seen so many different personalities. I love the fact that there is such a wide and diverse community here that talks about such a wide range of things. I can literally find a post for everything. I’ve also made so many good friends here and have an online friendship that I hope lasts for a long long time (you know who you are).
I find it hard to believe that just a few months ago, I was a 14 year old girl, terrified of leaving my house, terrified of talking to anybody and worrying about every little thing…okay maybe I still do that last one, but it’s crazy how much has changed in such a small amount of time. I mean, I’m doing clubs in school, i haven’t had a major panic attack in a while…I mean dude, I went to the shopping centre on Saturday! I feel like I changed woman! I know I still have a lot to do, but whenever I think about how I was before, I just think about how far I’ve come, and how I probably wouldn’t have if it wasn’t for this blog and you guys.
Anyway, I guess to wrap up this post I’m just going to say a massive thank you to WordPress and to you guys for sticking with me. I love you all and here’s to another six months!
Oo also, if any of you have any questions for me, I might do a milestone Q&A so if you wanna know anything about me then just lemme know!
I hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you soon with another one!
