Today officially marks one year since A Daily Dose of Holly began, I’m actually pretty shocked for those words to be coming out of my mouth, and for my fingers to be typing this. Why? I’ve started blogs in the past and lasted no more than a few weeks before packing it all in and forgetting all about it. Although I’ve not been the most active blogger due to the roller coaster that is life, I’ve tried my best and I’d say in the year I’ve been blogging I’ve made a decent attempt at it.

During my final year of university, as much as I absolutely loved the subject I studied, at times I wanted to write about things other than psychology and so my little platform for rambling was established. I never expected many people to read what I posted, visit my site, comment on my posts and everything else that you lovely people do…so thank you. During my year of blogging I’ve had many amazing opportunities, whether it’s meeting so many talented lovely bloggers, reviewing products, attending cool events, overnight stays, or broadening my food horizons through invitations to new and exciting restaurants, it’s been great. Blogging has not only enabled me to establish connections with multiple brands and PR companies, but I without a doubt believe it contributed to my writing skills and in my final year of university following the set up of this blog, I seen a big increase in my essay grades. Blogging may not have been the be all and end all of this grade increase but I certainly believe that it contributed to it.

So what hopes do I have for my blog in the next year? Firstly, I hope I can be more active and can dedicate more time to it because it’s something I enjoy and I’d love to grow in the blogging world and gain more experience. I definitely want to become more organised in terms of scheduling and posting but that links in with finding the time for my blog when I’m constantly working. Here’s to my 1 year “blogiversary” and hopefully there’ll be many more, I feel a real part of the blogging world and want A Daily Dose of Holly to continue on.

    Happy blogiversary!! I was the same way before I started orangeowldiaries – I tried blogging and kept forgetting about it and they just died off. I’m glad we both finally stuck to it!
