I knew that I wanted to post an appreciation post towards the end of the year, because I know how hard us bloggers work. Not only at Christmas but all year long. So I decided to do a shoutout/grateful post to many bloggers who have been so good to me this year. This is a thank you to all of you who take the time to read my content actually. I see and appreciate every single like, view, comment or share. Theres so many of you it would impossible to list you all, so please don’t be disheartened if you don’t see your name below, I just have a bad memory!
These people stand out to me because they have been there since my return to the blogging world in 2020. They are always there for me, are constantly supporting and encouraging. Its only fair I return the favour and show how much I appreciate and love you guys and the support you have shown. So here is your official thank you!
1. GROWING WITH SPAWN
Shelly is a mommy/Lifestyle blogger and shares some really amazing tips and insights into being a wife and a parent. Although I am neither of those things I find her content so helpful as I prepare to step into a wife and mother role as I get older. Shelly is a really good friend of mine, and I remember clearly the day she first commented on one of my posts and I knew then that we would be friends, and I was right. She is constantly supporting and showing me and my blog so much love. We are miles apart from one another but we actually talk almost everyday and she has honestly become a really good friend of mine.
2. NIRAJ’S BLOGS
Niraj’s blog is a really great hub of knowledge surrounding mental health awareness. I know he has suffered alot with his mental health in the past and shares alot of his experiences and how he has managed to overcome some of them. Similar to Shelly, me and Niraj connected when I first restarted my blog and he continues to be as supportive and kind since the moment we met. It’s great to see how Niraj’s blog has grown over the months and its great to see how loved by other bloggers he is.
3. CALLUNA’S WORLD
I can’t remember how I found Calluna’s blog but what drew me in was her incredible makeup skills. She shares so many useful tips and tricks and I really enjoy her mini-vlogs that she does. Calluna is always so supportive and always comments really great, insightful comments on my posts. I truly appreciate how she keeps up with my blog and we have such a great mutual support for eachother.
4. SMALL MOMENTS OF WONDER
Shahrin is such a vital part of the blogging community for me, always showing love and support to so many bloggers. I see her name pop up everywhere on so many different accounts, and that just shows what kind of person she is. So supportive, kind and not to mention funny. There have been many a times we have had conversations on posts and she is so funny.
5. CHASING THE MAXIMUM LIFE
Where do I even begin with Anjali. Such a pure, selfless and kind soul. She has also been here since the beginning for me. One of the very first people who had shown me love and support on my blog. So many people on WordPress know of her and love her. She’s constantly uplifting and supporting other bloggers in anyway that she can.
6. INFINITELY A DAY DREAMER
Maryam is for sure a staple in this blogging community and I really love the things she posts about. She is a beautiful soul and has so much kindness in her heart. Her blog layout and theme is so beautiful and her Instagram reflects the same aesthetic too. I really enjoy her fashion posts, she goes into so much detail and depth in all of her posts and I know she must work very hard on them. She is always supporting and showing love to me and my blog, and its truly appreciated.
7. STRATEGIC TEAMS
Sean is a new friend and supporter but one that I knew I had to include on this list. We have connected many times through such great in-depth conversations. He lives in Australia and I really enjoy reading his posts about life there and life with his family. He’s such a staple blogger that I am so glad to have met through the internet. No matter age, distance, hobbies or interests, its so lovely to be able to connect with another human over blogging.
8. DELICATE AND BRUTAL
Another one I knew I couldn’t miss from this list, so grateful that me and Amy connected through blogging. We chat often through Instagram and she always has so much love to share. Amy’s blog is really amazing and I commend her on being so open and honest about the health struggles she faces. It’s amazing how she can be so vulnerable and share some of the lowest moments of her life. Regardless of what she’s going through, she comes across as an upbeat and positive person who is always ready and willing to share love with anyone she encounters. Send lots of prayers her way, its an honour to know you Amy!
9. ZAK HAYES
Zak is a relatively new blogger that I have connected with. What I like most about Zak’s blog is that he talks on sustainability. I haven’t seen many blogs that are in that niche, so its good that he’s using the platform he is growing to raise awareness on that. He’s such a good writer, and is a really supportive part of our blogging team. I often see him liking and commenting on others blogs. Its so good to see new bloggers already supporting and loving everyone.
I also think its great that he’s a blogger because I sometimes feel like the blogging world is very female heavy. Its good to see some young men get involved!
Brittany is really one of the best Lifestyle bloggers I know. Her dedication to both her blog and social media platforms is admirable. I really have loved interacting and engaging with her over the last few months of 2020 and especially during Blogmas. She was so supportive in the run up and we checked with one another on a regular basis. I really appreciate the love and support she shows to so many in our blogging community.
As I have said, if I haven’t personally named you here please don’t think I don’t love and appreciate you. I see all of the love and comments I get and I really and truly appreciate them all. You are all really great bloggers, but this post would be never ending if I named everyone haha. I’m so grateful for this community of people I have.
