Happy 2nd Birthday LifeThroughTSG!

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to ma bloggggggg, happy birthday to you!
We’ve been around for a whole 2 years now; it’s gone so fast! I genuinely remember writing my first ever blog post, aw, so cute.
So, I thought in a cute-little-reminiscing style, why not have a look at the post I published for my 2 month blog-a-versary?! And we can all have a little giggle at how much I thought I had ‘learnt’ and whether or not this is still true, plus what I’ve learnt since!
You can find my 2 month post here (but I’m basically gonna put it in this post anyway).

I still agree with this one! Twitter is where most of my traffic comes from, so I definitely find it valuable still! However, I am seeing traffic from many other sources now, namedly instagram, so don’t discount the other platforms!

Bit weird that I didn’t even know that they existed, haha. But yeah, I still love a good old twitter chat! They’re a great way to get to know other people within the community.

Haha, this is funny. I’ve had so many phases when it comes to blog photos. When I first started, I used to hate them, but that’s just because I was a total novice and had no idea how to take a decent photo. Since then, I’ve liked them, loved them, disliked them and hated them allover again- the full 360! I’ve moved on from the iPhone pics and now take the majority of my photos on a camera, although I do love a good iPhone pic when I’m out and about!

I still agree with this! If I posted all of my blog posts every time I wrote them, they’d be so sporadic! 5 on one day and then nothing for 2 weeks; that kinda thing. I only write when I am inspired to do so because blogging is not a job for me (yet) and I don’t want it to turn into a chore.

It’s so strange to me that I used to feel like I was ‘lying to my followers’ by scheduling tweets- scheduling content is a lifesaver!
Especially when my university days are pretty unpredictable, scheduling is amazing. No-one can be online 24/7 and when I first started, I was trying to be. However, I’ve realised how unhealthy that is so now I try and take a step-back.

Haha, this is funny. I didn’t even realise it, but I haven’t blogged outside since this day! I’ll stick to inside with the window open, thanks.

As someone with 4,000 followers now (bit weird, haha), I still totally agree with this! No one is perfect and your blog doesn’t have to be either.
Thanks for putting up with me over the last 2 years, and here’s to the next 2!
Love,

    [ Smiles] There are not many blogs that can make it all the way through to two years.
    So, nicely done!
