As Clemloves is just over three years old now, I wanted to share with you my blogging journey so far, from when I first started my blog…
From a very young age I have always loved writing and taking photos. When I was very young I used to love going on my laptop and creating different websites, I remember one I made that I called Chocolate Hamster! I had so many different websites, I even taught myself to use HTML, although I’m a little rusty at it now. I think I was about 10 when I first started making them.
Every evening as soon as I finished school, I would race up to my room to update my websites. I remember these little cartoon dolls that were all the rage that you could add to your websites and create your own. My websites were full of them. Oh, I’ve just remembered the name of another one, CoolGirlsToday! (Don’t ask!) Anyway these websites started off my love for writing and taking photos. When I got a little bit older, I think I was about 17/18 when I first started my first proper blog. I remember reading peoples blogs and loved them, so I decided to start my own. I wanted it to be a place where I could share my stories and adventures. After a creating a couple of blogs, I decided in 2012 to start Clemloves.
Clemloves is a place where I can write about everything I love including beauty, fashion, books, recipes and so much more. When I first started Clemloves it was more a beauty and fashion blog, but there was so many different things and topics I wanted to write about, so I decided that Clemloves would be more of a lifestyle blog. Although in the last year I feel Clemloves has become more of a lifestyle and food blog! I really love how much Clemloves has grown over the last 3 and a bit years. I also find it quite amusing looking back at some of my first posts I wrote. I remember when I first started blogging and getting my first blog comments. I think it was on a blog post I did about herbal tea. But It made me so happy that there were actually people out there who were reading blog posts. I remember rushing to tell my mum that someone had left me a comment! Over the years I have learned so much about blogging and I have met lots of new friends over social media, from having my blog.
Clemloves has recently also undergone a makeover and I am so happy with my new blog design. I had been debating it for a long while and knew which blogger template I wanted, so I just went for it and I’m so happy I did. I think that as I have updated my blog a little, it has really given me a lot more inspiration. Also it felt the right time get a new blog design. As I mentioned above I kept putting it off for quite some time. I always think that when something feels right to do at that particular time, it’s always best to do it, if that makes sense! You can expect to see lots more lifestyle blog posts over on Clemloves, I will also be writing some more recipe posts and beauty ones too.
I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who reads my blog posts and leaves me comments. You are amazing and I can’t thank you enough.
