Three years ago, Darling Buds of Mei was born…
Another year, another birthday. Mine, yours, even my blogs. Last week, Darling Buds of Mei turned three and I thought it’d be nice to commemorate the moment.
I’ve so much to be thankful for because of my blog. I’ve met some of my nearest and dearest friends, I’ve had the chance to work with some amazing brands, it’s even worked as a portfolio and helped me get jobs. I truly believe without it, there’s so much I wouldn’t have had the chance to experience.
The past year I’ve written about how it’s been hard to update my site consistently and it has. Life, college, work, a lot of things get in the way but at the end of the day, it’s still here. It’s hard work but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Sometimes I don’t think people realise how much work bloggers actually put into their content. I get asked all the time for tips on starting a blog and I think a lot of people are disheartened when I tell them that a lot of it comes down to time, effort and a fierce amount of passion.
But we all start somewhere. Sometimes I look back over my blog and I think it’s crazy how it’s grown. Not necessarily in numbers but in quality and content. I taught myself to code and improved my site, I invested in a quality camera, learnt how to use it and I’m now proud of the photos I upload. I still have so much to learn but in three years I’m pretty proud of what my small blog and I have achieved. So long may it last and here’s to many more years.
