Achievements, blogging


A year ago today I wrote my first blog post. Happy birthday blog!!

Over the past 12 months, I’ve grown to really enjoy blogging and I’ve become part of an amazingly supportive and encouraging community. I’ve been touched by comments and emails and been shocked that people have read and actually enjoyed my ramblings. I’ve gone from 0 views to over 70,000. I’ve gone from 0 subscribers to 138.

Most importantly though, I’ve gone from being scared to admit I love to write to fully embracing it. This blog has gone from being anonymous to having my real photo and name on it! It has really helped me realise that my dream is to write and no matter what happens on my book publishing journey, I get to write everyday on here.

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me over the past year, I’m so grateful. Wow, this feels like an acceptance speech but hey maybe it is πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward to the next year!

For those interested, here’s some stats:

My top 5 most read posts:

Hugs and kisses everyone

  1. Happy Blogiversary, Vicky! I think you’ve done amazing things with your blog. I can’t believe we’ve known each other for such a short time, since I feel like we’ve been friends for a long time.

    If it makes you feel better, your stats blow mine away and I’m only a few months shy of my second blogiversary.

    Keep blogging!

    ❀ Lisa

  2. Congrats on your first year of blogging – and what a year it’s been for you! Now you know what is really in your heart; self realization is a fine thing.
    I’m looking forward to another year of your blog – keep on writing!

  3. Yay…I’ve liked your blog from the beginning . I feel like a failure on the writing front and want to make the new year better. I am almost 31 years old and I’ve got only incompleted pieces and then long long spells of nothing (no writing) in complete shut-down. It has to stop.
    I’ll probably start a simple bog in the new year…something for wriing..but not to “proclaim” writing cause that stresses me πŸ™‚

  4. We love your blog! It really must feel great to embrace writing and realize your passion for it. We have only been blogging since late August and it feels very rewarding for us already, I can’t imagine what it must feel like for you πŸ™‚
    Keep writing and follow your passion because we are all definitely fans!
