One year!

Doesn't time fly by? One year ago today I thought "oh why not" and wrote my very first blog post on Ever So Juliet. Happy blog birthday to me!

I took this photo at my desk, with a hastily scribbled post-it and a bit of clip art. I feel so professional.

I'd been thinking about blogging (and reading loads of them) for years, so I'm not quite sure why it took me so long to get started. I guess it's easy to view the blogging world as big and scary and judgemental - and then it's even easier to get disheartened when absolutely no one reads it!

But once I stopped worrying about what people did or didn't think about me, it all got a lot easier. And fun! I love this little space I've got on the internet - I love that I've got somewhere to show off the cakes I've made, or the daft things I paint on my nails. Even Riley gets a lot of love! I don't fit your typical skinny/stylish/stunning fashion or make up blogger, but I don't really care. I like rambling away in here (and if nothing else, it has finally taught me how to control my mane!).

So hiya to all of my lovely, lovely readers who have appeared along the way (and somehow there's now over 2,000 of you a month? Crazy. Hello!). Hi to the bloggers who are inspiring, lovely and very funny to read. Here's to another year!

  1. Happy Blogiversary! I'd far rather read about your cute cat, cakes, new house(!) and funky nail art than a generic fashiony blog any day!

  3. Happy birthday to your blog! =)
    I really like your nails a couple of posts down! I think I might try something like that...as I haven't done my nails in ages and they look kinda gross haha. And that cake also looks flipping delicious haha.
