Guess what?? It was my blogiversary yesterday!!!!!
I seriously cannot believe ONE YEAR has already gone!! I know its a cliche but it genuinely does feel like it was only last week when I set this blog up!!
I started this blog one year ago, just as a trial to see if I liked blogging. Prior to that I used to read a number of blogs (that number has now turned into hundereds) and always thought I'd love to give it a go. So I did! And that was how The Teenage Shopaholic was created. This was my very first post. Since then, because of my blog, I have been invited to industry exhibitions, been offered products to review, completed challenges, received awards, been in frequent contact with many other bloggers and been featured on online magazines! I've even been offered the chance to be on television! (which by the way, I'll let you know more about soon!)
So here are some stats:
Top 5 most-read blog posts:
1) L'Oréal Color Riche Nail Top Coat Confetti (800+ !)
2) Revlon Scandalous
3) Revlon Girly
4) Barry M Sequin Nail Effect - White
5) Christmas Nails
Top 5 audience countries:
1) United Kingdom
2) United States
Number of countries visiting my blog: 106
Number of combined (GFC/Bloglovin/Twitter/Instagram/Facebook) followers: 415
Number of pageviews: 20,000+
Number of posts published: 138
Number of comments: 339
By no means has it been easy, but I think that all adds to the challenge. I've learnt so much and I have such huge respect for all the bloggers out there! I've realised that blogging isn't as easy as it seems and sometimes I want to just blog and blog and other times I can't even look at the screen. I've also found that life does get in the way, but I just have to work around it and go at a pace thats good for me.
Its been an amazing, interesting, crazy one year and I'm just hoping the next one is even better!
Basically if your reading this right now, I'd just like to say a massive Thank You! Without all of your support and encouragement I may not have stuck at it, but boy am I glad I did!
Love you all <3
