And there it is, my last blog post of May. I actually did it. I COMPLETED 31 BLOG POSTS IN THE MONTH OF MAY.
I’m so so so happy and relived to have completed such a thing. It sounds like nothing to some but when you have to think of content, buy and receive products from brands/PR’s, test them out to get an opinion on them enough to review, take photos, edit them and then create the actual content EVERY SINGLE DAY it can be bloody hard and tiring. Obviously I didn’t take photos of every product I published every day, I took them in bunches. Some products didn’t make the final cut and some did which you will have already seen. Blogging can really test you as an individual at times but its really given me something to focus on, something to live for almost. It’s given me a goal every single day and given me so much more passion and motivation for what I do.
I’ve attempted to blog a full month before and often cracked a week or two in because I’ve had things going on but this time I let nothing get in my way, even if one night my post went live after midnight (ssh), but still the same day to me. Other than that we got a post up daily! Maybe I should learn to time keep and manage to post at 6 on the dot though in the future?
If you would like to read any of my posts published during May you can easily find them all here.
Let’s look back on the month! My top five most viewed out of my every day May posts were:
In between some of these, older posts have beaten them with monthly views but these were my most popular posts published this month! Maybe thats a sign that everybody is rooting to buy me a 21st Birthday Present. HA.
This month has been filled with a lot of stress, excitement and happiness. I’ve laughed, and cried (obviously, emotional here!).
I started off the month of May celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday along with a trip to Birmingham to visit BodyPower. We’ve hosted Sunday Dinner for the family, bought new furniture, had a complete front drive and back garden makeover, had two business trips away and been to a very exciting event in London with Pixie Lott celebrating her becoming KISS’s latest ambassador.
One of my close friends moved to Doncaster! Such a massive thing which I’m so proud of her for doing, after leaving her home in Maidenhead and moving hours away. I’ve gained a new friend and built an amazing friendship that I already know will last a lifetime. Saying that, I’ve seen friends that I’ve not seen in months and talked to my heart’s content. I’ve learnt that having good, positive and uplifting friends around you is the best medicine that anybody could wish for and I genuinely think that May has been one of my happiest months of 2017 so far.
I’m feeling so inspired and excited with my blog still, you’d think that after publishing every day that I’m ready for a break but I’m really not. I don’t want to go tomorrow without posting, it seems wrong! Maybe you’ll see me again? Who knows.
I’ve spent my last day of May visiting a physiotherapist for the first time to figure out a long occurring pain I’ve been suffering with and for once I’m feeling hopeful that it could be gone after a few more sessions and plenty of work! I gutted out the bathroom in preparation for family coming to stay tomorrow ready for my sky dive on Saturday and visited a new restaurant that’s opening it’s doors to the public in my hometown tomorrow. I’m ending the night in a really great mood and its thanks to all of the support my friends, in real life and online have given to me, the love I receive daily from a certain bunch of blogging friends (you know who you are) has been incredible. It keeps me going, I really mean it.
Thats it for tonight folks, thanks for sticking with me for a whole month.
WE DID IT!
One last time
Lots of Love, Debra-Bow xxx
