Wow. There is no other word I can think of right now. Wow. And thank you. On New Year’s Eve, I decided I wanted to start a blog, but I didn’t actually get round to starting a site until the the 10th of February, (One day after my birthday 🥳) and it then took me a further three days to actually write a blog post which I have put the link too here.
I started this blog, just because its always been something I wanted to do I guess; write something anonymous that I could give an opinion on and not be judged. I expected this blog just to be a thing which I wrote that no one would ever bother to read, and you know what, I was fine with that. I didn’t mind if nobody read it because it started off just as a way of expressing my feelings.
Four months later… and wow. I never ever thought I would get too this point in blogging. I am sitting here typing this quite speechless actually. I’m not sure what to say except thank you! I am going to do some more thank yous and explain my speechlessness (I think that’s a word… someone please let me know if it is 😂) later on, but for now I am just going to give you a few updates that only a few bloggers know about at the moment.
As you know, my blog is anonymous. Only a few bloggers who have contacted me, or I have contacted them know my name, and my first thank you is too them for keeping my name secret! At some point in the future, I will reveal my name and face, but not yet. Recently, I made a huge decision and told a friend about my blog (Gasp), and gave her the link too it. At the time, I thought it was a great idea, and if it went well maybe after another 3 or so months I would tell someone else.
Now… I’m not so sure.
She seemed happy for me at first, a little surprised, but happy and I felt some weight had been lifted off my shoulders by telling her, but later on she mentioned that I probably shouldn’t have told her, and should have left it anonymous. I’m not going to lie… this upset me. I thought telling her first was the right decision, but maybe I shouldn’t have. She said she would check it out, did when we were on the bus, but then kind of ignored it, which was fine really.
My friend, who I shall call “Alice” for privacy reasons, kept the secret really well for a while, and then, a conversation came up with me, “Alice” and another of my best friends, who I will call “Jemma” about something and “Alice” kept on asking me if “I’d told her yet”, which really annoyed me because I hadn’t wanted to tell anymore people yet. In the end, I told her, a decision… that funnily I don’t regret at all. I told her about it, gave her the link, and we carried on as normal.
Later the next day, “Jemma” told me she checked it out and it was cool. In a way, I kind of wish I had told her first. No offence to “Alice”, but I think she would have kept the secret better. “Alice”, if you are reading this… you will know who you are. I love you so much and always will, I just think telling “Jemma” (who will also know who she is) first would have been better. Please don’t hold this against me.
So, back too what I originally planned to blog about in this post.
Yesterday I reached 100 followers!!!!!! 🥳❤️🥳
Here are some thank yous I would like too say!
Ok so now that I have thanked these people, it is time to move on to some more thank yous and recommendations of blogs and bloggers I love and deeply respect ❤️
Another huge thank you to all my followers and everyone reading this! You all rule and deserve the world and more ❤️ I love all of you but if i put every single blog on here that I love, I would be here for hours! So I have just put the blogs who I owe a huge thank you too and have helped me so much in getting to where I am today.
I have exams next week, so will be revising a lot, but i had some spare time now and i felt I needed to thank you all. Keziah and Lydia R, I will try and do the awards soon, and I’m honoured you nominated me!
Love you all, and see you in my next post 😘
Have a nice day!
