400 Followers // Big Thank You Post!

WOW-EE!

Today I reached 400 followers! That is such a crazy number. This post is probably going to sound like every other blogger saying thank you but you will never understand how much I owe to all of you.

Blogging took me out of a very dark place at the age of 14 and its guided me through some even worse times. I've been blogging for 1 year 3 months and 6 days now. On the 28th November 2011 I entered one of the biggest journeys of my life, although I didn't know it then.

Blogging is a massive outlet for me, it doesn't matter whether I'm sharing my life with you or simply just reviewing my favourite product its still an outlet. 

You may often see me on twitter feeling really low or upset or generally just sick and tired of my back pain but I rarely take a break from blogging because its the one thing that makes me feel better. 

I'll be honest with you now I spend nearly ALL of my free time doing something blogging related, I put a hell of a lot of time and effort into my blog, just because I have the time and I love it. I feel so privileged to be able to do that and to have 400 people who want to read what I write. I'm my happiest when I'm blogging or chatting on twitter to my blogging friends or simply just taking photos for a post. I might not go out and do normal things like going to the cinema with your friends or playing a sport but I'm happy with what I'm doing and I wouldn't change it for the world!

I will never be able to say thank you enough as you are the people who stopped me from getting really low and giving up. I know this has been very random but its just the way my thoughts have come out this evening! I hope you've got the gist of what I'm trying to say.

I'm not Shona without my blog. I'm not Shona without you. I've gone from a shy little ginger girl who got bullied for being too skinny and too ginger to a mature beauty obsessed blogger who is strong and has grown so much. I don't even want to think about what my life would be like without blogging.

  2. Waaah Shona, I felt emotional reading this, especially the last part. I wish you all the best success during blogging, fuck the haters (excuse my french) and don't worry about the people who don't worry about you. All those idiots in school will never get anywhere, but with your maturity and dedication and hard work (and once your back is all sorted out) you are going to go FAR! Just remember that, laugh at them, shrug off their pettiness and remember that every minute you spend worrying about them is a minute of life you won't get back :) Anyways, I'll stop going on now, but well done on 400 girl and here's to many many more! <3

    1. I was emotional writing it :') Thank you so much lovely, god definitely fuck the haters! :) Most of the people in my year smoke, drink and take drugs excessively as well so they are already screwed! :) I've done a hell of a lot of laughing at them aha, they are so stupid, they are not going to go anywhere in life with a drink in one hand, a fag in the other and abuse coming out of their nasty gob's!

      :) Thank you so much lovely, I hope so too! I set myself a goal of 500 by the end of 2013, it seems do able now! xx

  13. Hi. I found you on twitter recently and loved connecting with you. Mostly because of our excitement for blogging and beauty products. It's nice connecting with like-minded people, even if they are half your age. (I'm actually more than twice as old as you are.)

    You are doing a fantastic job, and I wish you much success in the future.

    Keep in touch.
