Why I Started Blogging.          

I’ve been blogging for 1 year and 8 months now. So I wanted to do a bit of a throwback post today. To see how I’ve grown since I started this blog and set myself some goals for 2017. 

So .. Why did I start blogging? 

When I first set up this blog in may 2015 I did it to boost my confidence. At that time my confidence in myself and the work I did was very low so I wanted to create a space where I could channel my creativity and build upon ideas to better my self as a creative. 

Has it helped? 

It actually has helped and it’s made me a lot more confident in the way that I write and how much I should value my creative ideas. It’s helped me to become a more talented writer and helped me make a lot of friends that I wouldn’t have made if I hadn’t have started it. 

Recently I hit just over 150 followers on this blog and I’m honestly so proud of myself. I never expected 1 follower let alone 150. It warms my heart knowing that people enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it. That’s all I ever wanted. 

So what are my blog goals for 2017? 

To reach 200 followers by the end of December 2017 

– To try and do blogmas. 

– To use the voice I do have to make a difference in some way throughout the year. 

– To be more adventurous with my content. 

– To talk more about the things that are important to me. 

I know there aren’t too many goals on my list for 2017 but I feel like the ones I have put on there are achievable for me and in the end will result in this blog becoming a lot better and a lot more interesting to read throughout 2017. 

So here’s to the rest of 2017 I can already tell this year is going to be a great one. Do you have any blog goals for 2017? Let me know in the comments 💖 

Speak to you all again soon. Be Kind to everyone you meet – Kimberley xx

    I love hearing why other people started blogging because, to be completely honest, I can barely remember why I started! My blog was just set up on a whim one day 7 years ago because I’d seen other people doing it, and I’m glad I did because I love it 🙂
    Congratulations on reaching 150 followers!! And I look forward to seeing how you do with your goals this year – I’m sure you’ll smash them 😀

    Aw I’m glad you started blogging for confidence and have gotten more confident as time has passed ~ I didn’t do it for confidence but it’s certainly helped me be more confident too 🙂

    Also hope you achieve all your goals this year ❤ Blogmas next December should be great! xx

    I’m so glad to hear that blogging has made you more confident! I’ve had a very similar experience myself — it’s helped me come out of my shell a bit with people I don’t know well.

    Good luck on all of your goals!!

    Aah congrats sweetie, I’m so happy for you! And they sound like some solid goals – I can’t wait to see you grow this year! It’s crazy because we both started blogging for the same reason… to grow our confidence and I’ve made loads of friends here too.
