A Snippet of Life is turning two

Here we are – two years on and I’m still blogging away happy and content. Looking back at my blog anniversary from one year ago (here) I can tell you I have achieved everything I wanted and more. Yes, it has been a whirlwind with ups and downs but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

So let’s have a little re-cap.

another year gone

From January to July, I kept uploading my two posts a week – from outfit posts to yummy cupcakes and monthly favourites and not to forget my posts on blogging itself. I also dedicated a lot more time to my Twitter account and my Instagram. All in all, I went all in this year. My stats were steadily rising, which made me just give it my best even more. It was also the time of my last months at Uni which meant a big change was ahead of me. Especially the amount of time I could dedicate to my blog was about to change.

Then I got an internship and it was all a little hectic. My blog took a backseat, I have to admit. Life just got in the way but it’s okay. I still uploaded a blog post a week and in September I finally took the plunge and created my very own Newsletter. My stats didn’t look as good as they were during the first half term and it made me sad sometimes. However, I soon came to my senses that first and up most I created this blog because I love writing and photography. It’s my passion and I wanted it to share it with people even if it’s just a small amount. Now I can happily say that my stats are getting better and I think it’s cause I just kept going and with the steady improvements that come with being a blogger for two years now – my blog is looking better and better and that’s reflected in my content too.

the dress to celebrate A Snippet of Life is turning two

By the way, if you are wondering where this dress is from, it’s from ASOS. I have been wearing it non-stop this festive season. So it was just natural to show you this beautiful dress accompanied by some words about my blog. It’s the perfect dress to celebrate that A Snippet of Life is turning two.

During the last year, not only a lot of new content was added to my blog, it also got a redesign. I love how my blog is looking now and with the templates from Pipdig, you get so much individuality. With A Snippet of Life turning two I might get a new template but we will see.

What’s next?

So this is what happened blogging wise last year. For the coming year, I wanna continue to blog as much as I can, get back to a schedule and produce content I can be proud of!
