Lifestyle | Two Years of Blogging

Lifestyle | Two Years of Blogging A Blog Birthday

Happy Birthday.
Bon Anniversaire.
Penblwydd Hapus.

My blog is now a toddler after hitting two years old!

At the weekend my blog had a birthday, and in very poor fashion I spent the day shopping and neglecting my blog. When I should have been writing some content and prepping posts I was out shoe shopping, because well shoes. Let's call them a birthday present.

When I started my blog 2 years ago I have to be honest, I didn't think I'd still be posting here a year on, let alone two. I have to admit I started it to record my bucket list and my adventures which related to it and figured it was highly likely I would grow bored with it fairly quickly.

How wrong I was.

My blog has now evolved into my very own space on the internet where I can share, thoughts, lifestyle, travel, recipes, fashion, beauty, fitness and so much more. It's become an escape from the offline world which I thoroughly enjoy.

Many people think that blogging is all glam, glitter and freebies. Worst of all they think it's easy. Having started a doomed blog while studying Art at Uni as part of a project I knew when I started Rachel-Emily that blogging wasn't going to be easy but I think I was surprised at how challenging, and rewarding, it can be.

As my blog has grown I feel more and more pressure. Pressure to have the latest trends. Pressure to post more often. Pressure to evolve the blog and consistently make it better. Pressure to increase DA and social media stats. Pressures which I wasn't expecting to feel.

Thanks to these pressures though my blog has evolved into what it is today and I am so beyond proud that not only am I still posting two years on, but I actually have readers. People actually read my posts. If you're reading this now, or have read any other posts on here then thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It really does mean the world to me.

I have some really exciting posts in the pipeline, once I stop shoe shopping - 7 pairs in 5 weeks, it's getting silly now. I'm really looking forward to sharing them with you all. The posts, and maybe some of the shoes.

I really hope everyone sticks with me. Here's to the next two years and beyond! Make sure to follow me on Bloglovin', Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook to stay up to date.
