This week I was kindly reminded by WordPress that it was my one year blog anniversary.
Going back to the beginning my blog started off as a platform to showcase films I had watched, food I had eaten, places, brands, products, you name it, it was there. However, no matter how much I tried I was never 100% happy with my posts.
A couple of months in I revisited a lot of my old posts and found I was no longer interested in the content anymore, subsequently deleting a huge section of my blog. The trouble was I didn’t really know what direction to take it in or what really interested me.
I decided to start again creating content for me and things I was interested in; sure the likes were good, but it just seemed pointless posting things for the sake of it. I took a month or so to figure out where I was heading and decided to focus my efforts on a lifestyle blog combining menswear, grooming and travel – 3 things I am passionate about. I came back with a post about Aēsop Travel Essentials, (my top post to date) that confirmed that it was the right decision for me, and I haven’t looked back since.
I still see my blog as new, there’s still a lot I need to figure out, but I thank everyone who has stuck with me and has taken the time to read, like and share my content, as well as those who have sent me an email. I look forward to sharing another year with you. – N
