Last week, It’s A Dull Life turned 5 years old. Is that not insane!? To give you a bit of background information, my blogging journey began way back in July, 2008. I was seventeen years old and in my second last year of high school. It was a rainy Sunday afternoon and I had been thinking about starting a blog for months. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.
After a little experimentation with my first blog, It’s A Dull Life was officially born on April 30th, 2009. Still seventeen and in my last year of high school, my desire to document my inspirations was at an all time high (year 12 can do that to a person).
5 years on and I am so proud to look back over all the posts I have done. I have changed so much; I have learnt a multitude of valuable life lessons, met great people, travelled to places I have dreamed about going to my whole life, experienced career developments and most of all, become so much more confident in my style and who I am as a person.
Thank-you to everyone who has supported It’s A Dull Life over the past 5 years. From those of you who have been with me the whole way to those of you have only just started reading. From the bottom of my heart; thank-you.
