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.
