My Blogger Journey!!

When I started this blog I never expected anything to come of it, I set it up as I was told to 'get my name out there' - Never in a million years did I ever think I'd be sitting here looking up dresses to wear for the Irish Blog Awards, yet I am, and I'm not just attending the event. I'm going to the event..as a finalist.
It really is a dream come true.
I can't begin to explain to people how nervous I was telling people I had a blog. I was so lucky that every single one of my friends were supportive, i got so many lovely messages and I still do. I love being able to say I am a blogger. It gives me so much pride and I'm blessed to say I've met so many lovely people through blogging, I'm blessed.

I've gotten the chance to speak to so many young girls, like myself who are interested in blogging. I've made some lovely friends, I've gotten to speak to many celebrities, I still pinch myself at the fact I spoke to Laura Whitmore. It's been an amazing two years for me and I just want to thank everyone who's ever read my blog and especially those we gave me a lovely comment/message/drunken conversation about my blog, it means so much to me so thank you.

I'll be travelling to Dublin on October 4th to attend the Irish blog awards event as I'm a finalist in the 'youth category' - I've stalked the competition and ehm, yes I'm bricking it there's some amazing blogs out there written by the youth of Ireland and I'm absolutely honoured to be part of that category.
You can check out all the finalists here.. http://www.blogawardsireland.com/category/finalists-2014/
I'm looking forward to meeting so many interesting people. It's a great opportunity and I'm so excited!!

 I'll keep posted about my journey and the event but this is just a quick post to say THANK YOU for reading this. It means so much to me and I encourage anyone who's thinking about starting up a blog to do so. It can be very nerve wrecking but so worth it. If you have an interest in writing, start a blog. It's the best decision I've ever made.
