Three Years of Blogging

My blog turned 3 way back at the start of January. Which isn’t really way back, but we love a dramatic opening. I can’t believe I’ve stuck with this for three years now, I’ve had a few wobbles here and there, but I’ve pushed through.

Initially I was planning to do a What I’ve Learnt in Three Years of Blogging, but I struggled with knowing what to put so gave it a miss.

Just recently I have gone through every single blog post of mine, and updated it slightly. Mainly because I found out about an SEO plugin very late. If you’d like to hear more about that plugin, let me know and I’ll talk about in detail in a blog post. That inspired me to share my photography progress, as it sure has changed over the years.

The First Post

My first post was an introduction, that has had a little editing since I published it, but I still wouldn’t say it’s my best work. (It’s mainly just a plug to my other socials)

After that I started how I meant to go on. With an ever favourite Boots Haul. I published this on the 10th January 2015; which seems a lifetime ago. I was in my final year of college at the time, and looking for a hobby.

I used to and still take all of my photos on my phone, but I used to have an 5C. You can actually see the reflection of it in the photo, so bonus points if you can tell me what colour it was. I took all of my photos on my vanity, which has a glass top; hence the reflection. All of my photos are now taken on my bed, as it’s right by the window; which is great for natural lighting.


I feel like I have grown with my blog, and learnt so much. I’ve always had a love for baking, but never really did anything with it, but having somewhere to document it, really inspired me to do it more. The reaction to those posts is always really heart warming too, and I’m planning to get back into it ASAP.

Anyone who says Blogging is easy, obviously hasn’t done it. It’s not just five minutes typing up a post, and ten minutes taking photos and then you’re done. It is the worst misconception, as it’s a whole lot more than that. I really don’t know how daily bloggers do it, as Blogmas nearly killed me, and that was only 24 posts. Fair to say I will not be putting myself through that again this year.

I’d also like to say a big thank you to those who follow me, leave comments, and overall support me. I really appreciate it, and I love hearing all of your thoughts and opinions too.

That’s it! Happy Third Birthday to Luxuryblush, and hopefully there are many more to come!

When did you star Blogging? How did you find my blog? That’s something I’ve always been a little curious of.

Thank you for reading!

      Thank you! Blogging definitely seems to have this misconception of it being really easy, when it really isn’t!xx

    I’ve started blogging 2 years ago, and like you I’ve just finished college and I only had a part-time job at the time so I was looking for a hobby. I always had a thing for fashion and posted outfit pictures on my Instragram but I thought that on a blog I could go into a bit more detail about the outfits so that’s how it started! And I found your blog on Twitter, someone retweeted a link to your post about 100 ideas for blog posts and I gave it a read and subscribed afterwards 🙂 x

    • 9th April 2018 / 3:42 pm

      Congrats on two years! It was definitely a full on hobby to take on haha! That’s a good idea, sometimes you just can’t get into enough detail on Instagram. Thank you for subscribing, and I hope you found the post helpful haha!xx

    Congrats! Hitting 3 years! That’s such a huge milestone. I’ve been blogging for almost a year and a half, and I feel like I’ve been blogging forever. There’s also so many people that I’ve met in the beginning of my blogging “career” that have already given up or disappeared. Onto year 4! xxx
