Happy 1st Birthday Believe in Bumble

Hello and Welcome Back! My blog, Believe in Bumble, is one years old. How exciting is that! So to celebrate today I thought I would reflect over why I started my blog, my highlights so far and my plans for Believe in Bumble going forward.

So lets travel back to August 2018 when I started my blog. To be honest I felt lost. I had recently graduated from University, moved to London and was in a job that I hated. I felt like an outcast and failure at work. So I decided to start blogging to encourage me to focus on the positives in life. I fell in love with blogging very quickly. I loved having a something to focus on and blogging encouraged me to explore London. So that I could write about it and share it with you.

Now one year on I’m so much happier. I’m still living in London but now in a job that I enjoy. Through blogging I have discovered a love of photography and the wonderful blogging community.

Just a few highlights of the last year include; my blog being recognised with awards including the Sunshine Blogger Award and Blogger Recognition Award. When I started my blog I never thought people would actually read it so it is amazing to be recognised. I also had the exciting opportunity to go to the Shakespeare Night with Viking. It was so much fun to connect and chat with other bloggers. I would love to go to more events through out the next year.

I’m also proud of my advice post’s including How to get over New Job Nerves, Self Doubt and Travel Anxiety. Part of the reason I started blogging was to inspire and help others so I’m proud my posts have.

Now lets look ahead to the next year. I want to have more of me on my blog. By that I mean I want to have more photos of me on it! I want to have the guts to post outfit posts (something I struggle with as discussed in my post Why I’m Afraid to Share Outfit posts). I also want to stop second guessing myself and just write honestly about what I’m passionate about.

Finally, I just want to say thank you for reading my blog. I hope you enjoy my posts and they make you smile. Also please let me know if there is anything you would like to see on my blog.
