I have no idea how to construct this post without making it sound like one big cheese fest so I apologise in advance.
I’m going to start by explaining my lack of posts recently. I don’t have a particular reason for my absence other than a lack of inspiration and I’d rather not upload content that doesn’t meet the standards I’d like to think I’ve created for my blog (About 70% of the things I write only end up as drafts – I’m a tad picky). I also considered writing a post explaining my absence but I don’t want Thoughts By Briley to be a place of negativity either. On that note, I’ll move on from this but hopefully blogging should become more frequent within the next week or two.
Now onto what I actually want to talk about, THE PAST YEAR. My little blog is 1 today! Well it’s technically slightly older but the first published post went up a year ago today and around that time I began to live my life around my slice of the internet. I say that light heartedly but I’m sure a lot of you can relate to standing in the queue at Zara, clenching onto your new city bag with thoughts like ‘I can’t wait to style this up and blog about it’ running through your head?
Blogging has always been a challenge for me and still tests me regularly but it’s always been a constructive progression. My writing technique isn’t the best and I should really shape up on my photography skills but in the past year my blog has given me the confidence to express my creativity far more than I ever did before. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with some amazing PR companies, attend some pretty suave events and meet a tone of like minded bloggers who all share my love for excessive spending and hoarding lipsticks.
To bring my ramblings to an end I want to thank anyone who has ever taken the time to read my blog, whether you’re a fellow blogger or someone who’s just stumbled across it on accident. Whether you’ve been reading my blog from the beginning or this is the first post you’ve ever read.. THANK YOU. I’m proud of my little space on the web and I enjoy sharing my thoughts with you. Here’s to the next year, and year after that, and so on. *raises imaginary champagne glass*
