Happy 5th Birthday to my Blog!


Happy 5th Birthday to Away with the Fairies! I literally cannot believe I've been writing this blog for five whole years now. Today marks the day I sat down at my tatty old laptop, opened up Blogger and started to build my own little space on the internet, piece by piece, word by word. I never dreamed in a million years my blog would do as well as it has, and to even think about the amount of opportunities and experiences my blog has given me is a little bit overwhelming. 

What started out as a space to share my writing in the hopes of pursuing a career in journalism has turned into so much more. My blog is my passion, and to say I'm ridiculously proud of it would still be an understatement. Back in 2010 I thought my blog was merely a tool to get me into the career I wanted, but it has developed into something else all together. It's not just a hobby or a side-project, it's become a part of who I am and is almost like my own little online magazine, with a lot more personality and honesty thrown in. It not only has seen me travel down to London regularly for events, and receive some amazing products, but it's allowed me to work with some of my all-time favourite brands, see my face in magazines and make some lifelong friends. 

I got my dream of becoming a journalist, and I know my blog has played a big part in getting me there. My blog makes me so happy and I only have you guys to thank for that. Without you sticking with me over the years, I'd still probably be sitting here, talking to myself, but to know that people actually read and like the things I write makes me proud beyond belief. 

So, what's next for Away with the Fairies? My blog has grown so much since the beginning, and I want to see it grow even more. I'd like to embark on a layout change some point this year, and I also want to get on top of posting daily, which is still something I struggle with! I hope I'll have the opportunity to work with more brands, meet more fellow bloggers (and readers!) and make my blog the best it can be. 

So, Happy 5th Birthday Away with the Fairies! Here's to many, many more exciting years ahead!
