Blog Birthday – Strikeapose is 2!

So today is my blog birthday, Strikeapose is two today. I cannot believe it has been two years of blogging, it has gone by so fast but I have also done far more than I would have ever expected in this time.

Two years ago I was a graduate, struggling to get work and not having the best of times. My partner Jon helped me come up with the blog name as well as setting up all the blog for me which I couldn’t have done on my own. Since then I have tried to blog everyday, I know that I have missed some, but today on my blog birthday this is my 562nd post so I am proud. If you want to see how far I’ve come this was my first post, nothing too embarrassing, but I think I have improved.

I don’t think any of my friends would have thought of this being the blog for me, many, I still think, don’t really realise that people actually read my blog. Blogging is something very personal for me, my escape and creative outlet, so a big thank you to all of my readers who have connected with me over the last two years, come back daily or who comment on the blog.

Recognising my blog birthday has made me realised that blogging is probably the best choice I have made in the last few years, if you have a passion and you want to start a blog, do it! Write about what you love and you will be so surprised by the rewards it brings!

The next year is promising some new and exciting projects and collaborations, a big jump up from what I have been doing so far. Whilst most of it is secret at the moment I am loving seeing my hobby turn into a full time job. What will my third year of blogging bring? Watch this space…

    Happy 2nd birthday! :) Writing about what you love is probably the best advice <3 I have just started my blog. It was a few years in the making as I was reading others and so unsure about starting my own. There is still so much to learn but I am so glad I did.
