7 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Blogging // ft. me being sentimental, my real thoughts + lessons I’ve learnt

Blogging has impacted and taught me so much.

From improving my writing, introducing me to reading (aka my love), to of course, the wonderful, amazing friendships I’ve made, there’s so much I owe to this blog or my first child. The past 2 years, a lot has changed for this blog and I as a blogger, and upon reflection, I wondered how much it was comparing to when I had first started.

Today, I’ll be talking about some things I wish I have known when I first started out blogging! I thought that it may be a fun and sentimental post to write about, and I hope that you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I had reminiscing :)) Before I start, I’d just like to note that the following are just what I wish I had known for my own blog, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be the same for yours! Everyone’s blog and style is different; let’s cherish that and celebrate our differences 🙂

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

The Sunshine Blogger Award // dying in textiles, bookish questions (!!), strange facts about me + more

Hello lovelies, happy Thursday 🙂 How are you all doing? Things are pretty complicated for me right now with school and such. Especially textiles. We just finished our designer garment bags, and now we’re moving on to our pants and designing our shirts. There’s so much sketching I need to do, and I have to find a suitable colour palette for my capsule wardrobe. Even though it’s hectic, I still love textiles, but ughhhh

So!! I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Ryry @ OMG Ryry, Olivia @ Purely Olivia and Dezzy @ The Thoughtful Voice! There are so many questions – even some in which I begin to have an existential crisis. I’m so excited to do this and answer the questions, and hopefully it’ll give y’all a better look at the true nonexistent life of Kimberly XD

Let’s dive right in, shall we? *hup*

The Positives and Negatives of Blogging // life as a student blogger

If there is anything I love more than tea and potatoes, it’d gotta be analyzing stats and charts.

I know, such a nerd, but that just so happens to be me sometimes XD As you guys probably know, I’ve been blogging since February 2017, so it’s been an year and a half *faints* for me in the blogosphere.

Ever since I published my first post ’till now, I’ve never stopped learning about blogging, WordPress, and the community. Over that period of time, I think it’s safe to say that I have a good idea of the pros and cons of blogging as a student blogger, in which I will talk about in today’s post! Let’s dive right in, shall we?

Farewell August // new school year + reading slump + lots of stress // course planning galore + a new child (??)

I still cannot fathom, or even wrap my potato shaped head around the fact that IT’S SEPTEMBER.

I mean seriously – it is actually September, kids, like how did this even happen. Summer is from the days of the past okay I just made this really sad and now I have to face the stressing reality of being a student.

But!! Enough of that talk – there were still some pretty nice anecdotes of my summer break, and I can’t wait to share them with you! So much happened last month – I still have not clue as to how I’m going to put this all into one post without making this more than 5K words long 😂

Anyways, let’s dive right in, shall we? *hup*

Hi friends, and happy Saturday 🙂 How are you all doing? Summer is slowly coming to an end for me, and I’m starting to prepare for school and registering my online year courses.

The Social Media Blog Tag // Life Updates

If there’s anything I love more than writing up blog posts and being in the blogosphere overall, it would have to be bragging about my favourite bloggers of all time. To me, support between fellow bloggers is so important, and I’d love to contribute too, even if it was just a little wee bit 🙂

I was tagged to do The Social Media Blog Tag awhile ago by the ever talented Ally @ Girl Illustrated as well as my big sis and bestie Ryry @ OMG Ryry.
