A Year Ago Today, I Clicked “Publish”



So as you may or may not know, on the 20th of March last year, I clicked the publish button on my very first, very CRINGY blog post which I’ll link right here if you guys would like to take the piss (please don’t).

Honestly, so much has changed between now and then and I’ve been blessed with so many opportunities in real life AND online all thanks to this blog of mine! I really don’t know where I would be right now if I didn’t have this little corner on the internet that I can talk to you guys and tell you all how I feel. It’s so nice to have an outlet that you know you can turn to whenever you’re pissed, angry, confused, happy or just plain crazy. And it’s so great to find people who relate to you and help you along the way.

I’d love to give a little shout out too –

Bayance @Bayance – sorry for the mental breakdowns but hey – what did you expect?😅 Literally the first blogger friend I made! I’ll never forget how we first started talking back and forth in the comments😂

Indy @IndysSoliloques – Aka – my Australian twin split at birth – the timezones stress me the hell out but I’d stay up late for you dude😂 – we ALSO started talking back and forth in the comments – is that how I make friends or something?

– because I’ve literally bombarded these two with ALL my issues and they still put up with me so thank you guys – I’m sure it can’t have been easy. I mean, I can barely put up with myself half of the time🙃

Anyway, I’d like to give you guys a rundown of all of the things that have changed since I made this blog –

  1. I turned 15 (16 in July guys – wait on it)
  2. I turned Vegetarian
  3. I restarted my fitness journey
  4. I finished writing my book
  5. I went to the shopping centre for the first time in months
  6. I went to a party
  7. The number of anxiety attacks I’ve had has decreased MASSIVELY
  8. I’ve spoken to BOYS
  9. I’ve lost a few friends
  10. and gained some great ones – some being online –
  • Kamil – Thank you for emailing me that night not too long ago – it was the start of something great😂
  • Elm – Legit one of my fave bloggers here AND NOW WE TALKKK uifcibfhjb (sorry, I’m just super happy – hey dudee😂
  •  Abby Marie – My introverted life – I LOVE your blog and I get excited everytime you post and I love seeing your comments on mine!! Your words of advice are awesome!

I’d also love to give some shoutouts to –

Fiona @Questionsfromateenager –

AKA the coolest kid in the world (well next to me) with the best music taste and who is and will forever be my SOUL SISTERR. One of the reasons I get excited to post is because I can’t wait to see your comment!! I love how you’re so free and open and understanding and WE NEED TO TALK MORE!!

ThatOneGuyWhoSitsAloneAtAParty @Thesiteofaconfusedteen –

Hey – if I was at the party, we’d sit together okay? You seem really cool and you swear a lot – like me. You’re also supposedly awkward  – like me. I think we’d make a great team. I love your witty comments and your sense of humour is something that some people won’t get, but if they do, they’ll love it!

You guys are awesome!!

This blog has in a way changed my life. I was such a shy, awkward person and it’s safe to say for everyone that it’s clear I’ve come into my element.

Idk if it’s weird but I wouldn’t like to call today my anniversary. I mean, yeah, I posted my first post today but I feel like I was half faking. I would say that I truly started becoming myself and showing you guys the real me, no edits or cuts, was somewhere around September – when I told you guys my first kinda deep story time – check it out here if you wanna. It’s about Maya.

My life was so different back then and how far I’ve come now, with all of you guys to share it with makes me so happy. The fact that you time the time out of your day to read and comment and like and all of these little things just show that you care – even if it’s just the tiniest amount. And sometimes, all ANYONE needs in life is just to know that somebody’s there, and they are listening and most importantly – that they care.

Anyway, what I’m basically trying to say is a MASSIVE thank you for putting up with the goods, the bads, and just the teenage crappy moments of my life and here’s to many more years!

Okay so now I’d like to share with you guys a few of probably my most memorable/favourite and frankly quite weird blog posts here – if you’re new, be sure to check them out!

  1. The Party
  2. My Trip to Dubai
  3. My First Award
  4. The First Midnight Talks
  5. The First Cheers To The Teenage Years
  6. To My Bullies
  7. 100 Follower Special
  9. A Midnight Wander to Remember
  10. Temptation

I think I’m gonna wrap it up here guys – I really hope you guys liked this post because it made me so nostalgic writing it!

I can’t believe that over the course of a whole year, I have never thought about quitting once…am I getting attached to this blog? I think sooo

I’ll see you all in my next blog post!!

    Duuude no it’s totally okay – you were always there for me too! Omg yesss it was like 4 am and I found your blog through Queenteen and literally binged 😂😂 I guess you were online too because my notifications went on full blast and I lost track of which comments were for which post. 😂 Anyway, congrats on 1 year and cheers to many more.

    P.S. Imagine if we stayed blogging until adulthood – that would be so cool. 😂

    Aaaahhhh congrats on reaching this little milestone dude! Here’s to many more years of blogging! I honestly giggled when I read what you wrote about me, like WHAT SHUT UP YOU’RE SO KIND (but also pretty badass – from one badass bitch to another). And yes, SOUL SISTAAAAAS ALL THE WAY!😂 As for talking more, omg we really have to, you have no idea how much I enjoyed that first long chat we had via email! Shoot me an email (or an instagram dm) any time. You’re so easy to talk to! So glad that our paths met in this blogosphere 😊xx

    Yay I got a shout out! I love shout outs!

    Congrats on your anniversary though. Not many people actually manage to continue their own blog, they just end up giving up.

    Stay awkward.

    Or not.
