Happy birthday Makinglifeacamera + Q&A

Wednesday, 30 December 2015


Oh my gosh, I can't believe that I have been blogging for a year! Where has the time gone? In my mind, I'm still just starting out and learning the ropes of blogging. This year has a massive learning curve for me and although I have gained a lot of knowledge, I still have so much more to learn. I can't thank you enough for reading my blog, it means the world to me that people enjoy reading what I post. If you asked me a year ago where I thought my blog would be, I could never expect this - thank you.  

What I have achieved:

  • Being brave enough to upload some controversial posts
  • Doing my first collab with Shylifeliving
  • Uploading fashion posts which I never thought that I would do 
  • Being contacted by some brands 
  • Meeting some lovely fellow bloggers who I can rely on for advice or a just a friendly chat 


What I plan for the future:

  • To continue to have the confidence in posting controversial posts
  • Include many more fashion posts as I enjoy doing them so much
  • Work with other bloggers and brands
  • Start to upload cooking posts because I rarely ever do them
  • Ask Twitter chats if I could host some; I enjoyed my first so much

Q&A


@EJLChronicles asks: What inspired you to start blogging?

I was really into watching Youtube and reading other blogs before starting my own; I loved the idea of having your own platform to share ideas and express your thoughts. Also, as I'm not creative in the sense of DIY or art, I thought that I could use my blog as a creative outlet in a different form. 

@ShyLifeLiving asks: What's your favourite blog post that you have written and your favourite blog post that you have ever read?

I think that my favourite post that I have ever written was my CTGT:My Germany trip + haul because that holiday meant so much to me. It was such a special trip as I learnt about the place that my Mum was born in and where my Grandparents lived for a chunk of their lives. 

My favourite blog post that I have ever read was by Onemoregirlonline and it was her No more wondering 'What if' post. After reading this, I felt very inspired and it really made me think about worrying about the future. I love this girl's blog, it has many amazing posts that have always left me thinking about the message behind them! Definitely check them out! 

@Coloursofarose asks: What keeps you motivated to blog?

For me, blogging is a hobby so it is mainly the enjoyment that keeps me motivated. Also, I like being organised and sticking to schedules, which may seem strange but I do, therefore I already feel quite motivated to upload twice a week.


This year, blogging has become my passion! I'm really excited to continue posting and improving my blog. Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout my first year - it really means a lot!
