Happy 1st Birthday to my Little Blog

Today 27th August marks the 1st anniversary of my blog.This time last year,obviously,i decided to set up a blog for the first time and as i was 28 years old,i was a little late to blogging but said sure why not give this a go.I had just joined twitter for the 1st time too in late July and had started to follow some bloggers,my first being the beautiful Sammy of

So in setting it up,i had absolutely no idea where to start and infact was trying to actually set up my blog through bloglovin and it was with the help of the lovely Chelsea of who sent me in the right direction to where i was then able to set it up.

I had no idea what to write about but i did call it "Hollie's Lifestyle,Fashion and Fantasy Football Blog"! So my first posts were all personal posts about my marriage breakdown and i followed them up with some review posts and a couple of #fpl posts too.It was beginning to look like a very diverse blog and to this day,it still is. I can write about anything without sticking to a particular niche and this really suits me as i have said many times that my blog is a reflection of myself which is at times "all over the place".

I remember getting my first follower on bloglovin and i was so excited by this and in the course of the year,i have managed somehow to now have over 500 followers.I really am quite astonished by this as i could never see why anyone would possibly want to follow me.One of my first followers was a lovely and talented young lady called Flo of  
who had started her wonderful blog around the same time as me and has always been there for support,thanks Flo.

I have made so many new friends through blogging and i would like to say a massive Thank You to everyone who has taken the time to read an article and i so much appreciate it.

For anyone who has followed me or read a post,you will know that my posts vary from fantasy football to fashion and beauty and personal posts which include some mental health issues that i have and i am being honest when i say that i am amazed that anyone actually follows me!

This is my 113th post which is not too bad for someone who only blogs for a hobby and finally i would like to say,starting my blog was one of the best things i ever did so here's to another year,

thanks for reading,

lots of love,
