1 year anniversary post!

by - August 27, 2016

Hey everyone, today is my one year blogging anniversary! So, today I am going to be talking to you about my blogging story so far... I hope you enjoy this post and I will see you all again very, very soon. xxx

So, on August 27th 2015 my blog was created, but the story didn't start there...

For a few months before that, I had been debating creating a blog and I even had a name planned already. But, to be honest I didn't really know what blogging really involved so it was pretty scary when I actually created my blog.

Flash forward again, it was a Thursday if I remember and just after mid day, I sat down and thought. I am going to do this... I am going to start Lou Loves. On the first day of my blog being live I got 5 pageviews and I was over the moon!

Back at that time reaching even 100 pageviews seemed impossible, but a week or two later I logged in and I was on 99 views. I kept madly refreshing the page, and after about 10 minutes that 99 flicked over to a 100. I was so happy I honestly didn't believe I had 100 views!

Then, that number kept growing and that 100 became 500. Then that 500 became 1000. Then that 1000 turned into 5000. Then that 5000 turned into a 10,000! I am now on nearly 11,000 views and I feel as though I have come such a long way since that day I had 5 views!

Through out my blogging time I met so many lovely people and have done many, many collabs with them. (Marti, I'm looking at you). It's honestly been so lovely getting to know these girls, so I will leave the links to their blogs below so you can go and check their blogs out.

So, I guess what I want to say now is simply thank you! Thank you for your constant support. Thank you for always commenting on my posts!

I hope you all enjoyed this post and I will see you all again very very soon!

Love Lou
