Twelve months ago I pressed ‘publish’ on my first post as ‘RachelSwirl’. Back then it was only close friends and family that read my blog, I never expected anything more from my blog as it was designed purely as an outlet for me to jot down the musings of Motherhood now and then.
Throughout the year my blog seemed to attract attention online and somehow took off in a way in which I never really expected. I very quickly became part of an online community, receiving responses from other bloggers, partaking in linkys, being sent review opportunities, creating and sharing my own blogging linky and even attending blogging conferences!
My blog seems to have opened up a whole array of opportunities which I could never have imagined happening when typing my first post.
I have learnt so much since then in terms of design, technical issues, social media, SEO, working with brands and a whole load of other stuff which comes part and parcel of being a blogger.
I would like to thank you all for reading, following, sharing and simply being there for the past twelve months as I have slowly found my blogging feet. I have loved each and every moment and am looking forward to the future as a blogger, whatever that may bring.
