This post is so exciting to me! This time last year I started my blog, this post was supposed to go up yesterday but life happens so I’m posting it today! This has actually worked out for the best as I hit 1000 followers on Instagram overnight which in the grand scheme of things is not a lot but to me it’s amazing! For today I thought I’d share some of my favourite moments of the last year and my plans for this year!
This past year so much has changed – I quit my full-time job to go to uni, moved in with my boyfriend, began decorating a house and obviously started my blog! I have loved blogging and I’m so glad I finally started after saying I would for literally years! Over this year I’ve had about ten changes of opinion on what I want my blog to be but over the past few months I think I’ve started to find my own so hopefully, that comes across!
A Look To The Future
Believe it or not, Emiline is not my name! My name is actually Emily and I came up with Emiline as a way to stay anonymous but as the year has gone by I’ve started to upload pictures of myself and now I want my blog to contain my actual name but apparently Emily is the most common name and I cannot find a decent blog name where the URL, Instagram and Twitter are all available!
I also want to go self-hosted this year, WordPress is amazing but who doesn’t want a .com?
I’d love to do more fashion and home posts. I love clothes and decorating my house just as much as beauty. When I started this blog I knew I wanted to do a little of everything but over this year I’ve definitely stuck mainly to beauty – maybe I’ll change my blogging schedule to different themes on certain days?
One of my main hangups about my blog and Instagram is picture quality. I really want to get better at taking pictures and have them be a higher quality. Hopefully, over the next year, I’ll invest in a decent camera since I’ve already stuck at this for a whole year!
Thank you so so much for supporting this tiny space of the internet for a whole year! I cannot wait to see what this next year brings!
