Q&A – One Year Blogging and What I Learned

Q&A – One Year Blogging and What I Learned


I can't believe it! I have officially been blogging for one year. This is all that I have learned from one year blogging.

I can’t believe I am writing this… One year ago, April 2017, my life took a huge turn. At the time I didn’t know what to really expect out of this whole journey, but I knew that I was unhappy, and I knew that I needed a change.

From battling anxiety, depression, and being a broke 20 something year old, I knew that the life I was living, wasn’t the life I wanted to live for the rest of my life. So I made a change.

I decided to start a blog. I needed an outlet that I could go to, and escape reality. My blog is my safe zone. It’s my happiness and it’s the symbol of me finding myself.

It has now been a year of blogging and I have learned so much about myself.

I have learned that I am hard working, and dedicated. I won’t stop until I have conquered.

On top of my blog I created a community, Boss Girl Bloggers, a place where female bloggers and entrepreneurs could come and get answers to all of their questions, a judgement free zone. We are all learning and growing and I am so glad that I could share my journey with all of these incredible ladies. They have made this all happen! Without my Boss Girl Bloggers I would not be where I am today. I never knew people from all around the world could have such a positive, huge impact on my life & happiness. Each day I am thankful.

I am now waking up everyday with the drive, and want to actually work!!! It’s an incredible feeling and I don’t ever want it to go away.

On BOSS GIRL BLOGGERS IG I asked you all to ask any questions about my blogging journey thus far! So here is the most awkward video ever of me answering them for you (: 

I hope you enjoy and I apologize in advance for all the times I say UM and my sh*t editing skills!

Grab a glass of wine and enjoy this beautiful thumbnail as well (;
