BLOGGING: Two year blogversary

Two years at Illustrated Teacup - Balloons

I can't quite believe it, but this here blog has officially been on the proverbial map for two years!!
I'm actually super proud of what I've managed to achieve in these two years, most importantly that I've actually kept the thing running for the whole two years, with only a few small breaks. That's kind of a big deal to me, as I'm notorious for dropping projects when life gets busy. So I'm giving myself a lil pat on the back.

I guess for this post I just want to say THANK YOU.

THANK YOU to my amazing readers, new and old, regular or once in a blue moon. You all make this possible and make it worthwhile because lets be honest, blogging can be a right pain in the bum and can be really time consuming.

THANK YOU to all the brands that have asked to work with me over the last two years, especially in the last year where I've had the opportunity to work on some great collaborations, and promote some really great companies. I'm hoping to go bigger and better this year.

THANK YOU to my advertisers, whether big or small, paid for or competition winners. You're all brilliant. And the support is forever appreciated.

THANK YOU to the SotonBloggers, who very often keep me sane (our Whatsapp chats are hilarious), and who have become an amazing group of friends. And a special THANK YOU to Alice and Amy for bringing the events together and creating the opportunity to meet local bloggers and make new friends.

THANK YOU to my friends and family that read, comment and share my blog. I guess you made this all real to me. Knowing that real life people actually enjoy my blog. It's actually real quite awesome.

THANK YOU for all the amazing, and heart warming comment here and on Twitter and Instagram. Your feedback is so valued and means the world to me that you take the time to share.

And lastly the biggest THANK YOU of all, to Dann. I've never known anyone to be so supporting. No matter the time of day or night, you allow me to create my little corner of the internet and nurture my little dream. And you help so much - taking photos, being in photos, helping with props, and letting me just get on with writing and editing. It means the world to have you by my side and support this blog.

So basically, THANK YOU. From the very bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.
