Thanks to a little calendar reminder, I realised that it is 4 years today since I launched my blog. In some ways, it seems like it’s been forever, but on the other hand I can’t believe it has been so long.
I started my blog while I was undergoing some pretty big life events and needed to carve out a space on the internet for documenting the creative journey I was taking. Little did I know that four years on, it would have made it possible for me to be doing my dream job and ultimately turning my hobby into my own business.
Looking back at my posts, I can see the initial enthusiasm and flurry of content, and then a long period of neglect while life got in the way! I then took up blogging with renewed energy and commitment at the start of 2017 and haven’t looked back since!
Funnily enough though, I have always continued to microblog and document my creative journey on instagram. It is so much more immediate and easier to create and consume content on but I think that people also still appreciate the detail that goes behind a blog post.
Thank you all, dear readers, who have stuck with me.
Over the years, I have made some wonderful friends through my blog and Instagram and have been afforded some fantastic opportunities, so it is something that I will always be grateful for.
This year, I was also really excited to welcome my guest bloggers – the LSA Blog Squad – when I opened the shop. This group of awesome sewing bloggers are adding fantastic reviews and articles to the blog each week.
By way of celebration of my four year blogaversary, I am giving away a free Sewcialist patch (worth £5) with all orders placed on Wednesday 23rd May 2018 (offer ends Midnight GMT).
Thank you all for your continued love and support.
