Honeypot Blogs 1st Birthday

That's correct, my little Honeypot Blogs is a year old!!

Firstly, I'm incredibly surprised that I have managed to last a year, I have started blogs in the past and I struggle to get past the first couple of months. I just struggled to find a specific interest that I could write about. 

When I started this blog I really wanted to throw myself into it, I made sure I had a different Twitter account and a different Instagram account. I also wanted to keep it somewhat secret from people I actually knew, I just didn't want the criticism. It actually took my work pals, who also have blogs, months to find me so that was interesting to know people I actually knew would be looking at my blog (pressure). What I didn't realise was how much it would properly become a hobby and become a massive part of my life. I don't even use my own personal twitter and instagram accounts anymore, I don't have a need for them. But as this year has gone on I'm becoming less secretive about it and starting to share my blog more and talk about it more. 

Blogging also awakened my love for beauty, even if they are just reviews, I actually enjoy writing about products. I even wrote a post about how blogging has inspired me, how it almost sparked that passion for writing again and that's something I never thought it would do if I'm honest. I never started this blog to make money or to get freebies, I just wanted to write. I don't think I would want this to be my career, I don't I stand out enough but you know I'm just loving writing again. 

I quite quickly fell into a routine with how many times I post and what I write about and to be honest I think that's what's kept my interest. I like a routine, I work really well with a routine, whether it be the gym or work or what I eat, I like to have a structure and blogging just kind of fit into a little gap in my life and it works. 

My blog is still tiny and I probably only have about 3 people who actually read it but you know what I'm ok with that. It'll be exciting to see how my blog changes over the next year. 

However, I still don't think I'm ready to fully put my face on my blog.


  1. Congrats on one year of blogging lovely :) x
