5th Year Blogiversary | How I Got Into Blogging + What I Think Now


Well, it's my five year blogiversary as of December 17th. I feel like I may have written about how I got into blogging before but that was probably a few years ago so I thought I'd do an updating and more in-depth version.

I've been blogging since exactly December 17th, 2012 which was two days after my 18th birthday and my last year of high school! As it says in my very first post on this blog I had been blogging on Tumblr for awhile and finally decided to take it to the next level but didn't know where it would go and here we are today years later still blogging and more in love with it every day!

But to dive deeper into the reason why I got into blogging is that really it all started because I used to, okay well still am, an online shopping addict and I'm not afraid to admit it. I wanted to share the purchases that I scoured the internet for for hours at a time, I remember specifically being so happy I had a place to share this sweater from Shop W.A.S.

When I first started I didn't even read many other blogs or even know about sponsored content, I just blogged for the love of blogging. I didn't see other people's blogs and think that I wanted the same thing I just felt that I needed to write and share my thoughts with others regardless if anyone even read what I had to say.

Needless to say I am so happy that I started and here is to many more years of blogging, because now it's become something so much more than just a place to share my thoughts about this new sweater I bought. Now blogging is about making connections with brands and the people who run them, networking with other bloggers who I can share my passion with, working towards a lifestyle and job that I love and can support me and broadening my writing skills. It's given me the opportunity to work with brands and attend so many events and I couldn't be more thankful!

As of right now I hope too expand my blogging horizon and take my blog to new levels!

Happy 5 years to Spooky Chic and here's to many more years!
