The Birds and The Butterflies is One!

Today my blog has been up a whole year! Happy 1st Birthday to my blog! Well, sort of.  Basically I started this blog in September 2014, but I just posted every now and then, I properly started around this time in January 2015.

I so wanted to do a giveaway for this milestone, but being a student and having no job I just can't afford to.  You're just going to have to deal with me waffling on, sorry about that!
As soon as I get some money I shall do my first giveaway! (YAY)

To be honest, I am proud of myself for sticking to something for a whole year.  That is a long time for me, haha.  I literally thought this blog was going to last 2 months, maximum.  I'm also proud of how far this blog has come.  I know some bloggers who have been blogging for less than a year that have like a thousand followers, but I've only really recently started gaining followers so, ya know I'm not doing bad.  I'm happy with how my blog is growing.  I get some lovely comments and I've made so many amazing friends.  Yes, friends.  I think that is the best thing that's come out of this blog.  I've became friends with so many lovely people and I am so grateful for them.  I hope there is more to come!

This blog has actually helped me with.  When I started it, I never thought it would.  I remember thinking "how in any way is writing going to help me" but it has.
When I've written about my anxiety and depression, I've had such a good response and find people that are like me and makes me feel like I'm not alone, so thank you!

In other news, I have finally set up an Instagram at long last! Make sure you follow me (link)
I have lots of plans for my blog this year, I will be uploading once a week.  Most likely Friday at 10am, but I'm not promising that day, but it will be once a week haha.

Anyway, next weeks post will be back to the sort of normal style on my blog.  See you then!

ALSO, I'm thinking of doing a Q&A on here, so please could you leave me any questions you may have in the comments or tweet them to me.  My twitter is @bird_butterfly1

  7. Happy belated blog birthday! A year of blogging is such an achievement, I've been blogging now for 18 months and I couldn't be happier - It's crazy to think what I must have done in my spare time now before blogging!!
