    I’ll be subscribed to both your email list and on wordpress! I don’t want to miss out on your newsletter! I’m so glad you liked mailerlite so much. I completely relate to this. This past January, I spent hours going through old posts. What I liked about my older posts, what I like about my newer posts. It was nice to see how far I come. It was also crazy to see who was in my life at the time, who isn’t in my life anymore, how much I’ve improved in terms of blogging. It’s honestly so crazy (for lack of a better word). Great post Laura xxx

      Thank you girl!! I began to appreciate blogging so much more. It’s the greatest kind of photo album. Sometimes when I’m bored I’ll just go through it on the train, and I see so many posts that I forgot about. xxx

        same! It happens more often then you would think! I thought I would remember every post I’ve ever written, especially if they’re on the more personal side, but I’ve written so many posts, that more than a few have definitely slipped my mind. I love blogging 🙂 x

    I like the lifestyle “category” of a blogger, it feels more real to me. I started to add a lot about make up, and then very slowly added a post here and there about living with POTS or about my wheelchair or something. It has gained me a follower or two, so I think it’s fun 🙂

      It is. I think lifestyle means so much. Most assume you have to discuss your closet or fitness alone etc, but you can really discuss anything that’s either relatable, interesting or entertaining. It’s a fun category! 🙂

    Ahh, can totally relate being a lifestyle blogger as well! I feel happy and important when I talk to my online and even blog friends since they all understand what I’m going through and we are so like-minded. I feel that I can connect with you and others on here compared to my real life friends which is a nice feeling 🙂 Yeah sometimes your views or engagements go down or some of your followers don’t read your posts as much but I totally agree that blogging is not about the materialistic things such as stats and followers and it’s all about just the happiness and the love that your readers give you when they read your work. As long as you enjoy what you’re doing and you’re working on your passions, that’s what really matters. I love blogging and the joy that it gives me and have made amazing friends on here that I would never leave!

      Stats and followers are nothing without passion right! I have a very different connection to my online friends than I do to my offline. People talk often about the bad sides of blogging and social-media, but I see many good.
      Thank you for reading and commenting girl!

      Thank you so much! You should be sent one automatically I wrote on Friday, which has a piece on Instagram, but the next one will feature more stuff. Let me know if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see. 🙂

        I love the design of it and how user friendly it is without being too overwhelming to read. The piece on Instagram is something I’ve been pondering over myself, whether or not it’ll somehow reach its end.
