One Year Blogiversary + Giveaway!

Blogger blogiversary

Wow! I can't believe it's a year already. That was way too fast. They say time flies when you're having fun.

July 4th, 2016 was the first day I hit 'Publish' after I had given a lot of thought towards blogging. I started out as a beginner - I mean a real time beginner who had no idea of where to start from and how to get a blog running but through the help of Google, friends and fellow bloggers the blog has grown to where it is today.

Since its launch there have been
• 100 posts
• 60,000+ total views
• Increase in monthly views
• Readers from about 10 different countries
Special shoutout to all my readers in United States, Russia, Kenya and also to the ones here in Nigeria.

Well my first year of blogging hasn't been that easy, one of these days I'm gonna write a post on the challenges of blogging in Nigeria, watch out for it. I would say I've been able to sail through many obstacles and still have hope of overcoming many.

Recently my blog was approved by Google for AdSense which I had applied for so long - that's a milestone reached and secondly my blog was nominated for Liebster award - another milestone, I'm already working on a post about that ( in the draft). I have learned a lot throughout these 12 months and I look forward to better years ahead for the blog.

But let me be honest with you, none of these would have happened if I didn't have you all supporting my blog and what I do here, by visiting, reading my posts and your comments most especially. So I say THANK YOU to you all lovely people out there.

As a way to give back to my readers, there will be giveaways that will run for 1 month (4th July - 4th August).

    My blog anniversary is coming up in a couple months, and I wasn't sure what to do. I may steal your ideas if that's ok?! You say you've only been blogging a year but you seem way more knowledgeable than me lol
