My thoughts on things before and after blogging

Firstly I’d like to say sorry for the awkward sounding title. I had an idea of what I wanted this post to be but I couldn’t seem to express this in a normal sounding sentence!

A couple of weeks ago I posted my 10 blogging goals for the next 3 months (here) and this was one of my goals, so to achieve it so quickly is amazing!

I am still very new to the blogging world, so I’m sure I still have A LOT to learn, but here’s what I’ve learnt so far: View Full Post
