My First Year of Blogging

My blog is 1, where has the time gone!

Well where do I start?

I originally started up my blog as “KimzKardz” to try to help me with my handcrafted cards and wedding stationery and after speaking to friends and family to see if it was a good idea.  At the beginning I got a little help from a few business with sending me products etc but nothing that was life changing unfortunately. After thinking long and hard whether it had been the right decision I had a brain wave and decided a few months down the line to change the name to allow a more open aired name to shine through and move into Lifestyle Blogging, there I then created and came up with the name “Life of an Auntie”. Why I hear you ask yourself?!….Because I am an auntie to 4 beautiful boys who I have watched grow over the years and who I love very dearly, so thought it suited me perfectly.

Well what a year it has been so far it has had lots of lows but plenty of highs as well.  It has been a very mixed emotional year but it is defiantly on its way up now.  I have still got a long way to go to get more traffic and build up my blog more but I am working hard to get more established with lots of different companies etc.

12 months on and I’ve just brought my new domain, exciting times.  It is something that takes a lot of time and consideration to make sure your making the right decision.  I may then change it again when I start a family so it involves my family more rather than just my nephews so can combine everything together.

Working full-time as well can sometimes make it difficult for me to keep on top of all the posts I have to write up which is why I don’t post very regularly in a week it’s all over the place, but I’m hoping now that I know what I’m doing and where I’m going the next year will see lots of improvements.

My aim for the next 12 months is:

  • Get more views to my page
  • Work with more wide range of companies
  • Attend more blog events
  • Meet more bloggers
  • Post more in a week
  • Try and do more collaborative & Guest post
  • Get involved in more linkies

I love writing about products and sharing my thoughts and opinions and without you guys reading my posts and getting involved in competitions I wouldn’t have been able to continue, So thank you for all your support it means a lot.

What made you start blogging?  Leave me a link to your blog in the comments box would love to have a browse and make some new friends.
