2 years of It's Kate Rose

2 years ago today I first pressed publish on a blog post. 2 whole years, that's 730 days, 17,520 hours. But it has flown by.

I started this blog as a shy little 15 year old, starting her final year in secondary school totally confused about what she was going to do when she left. I really do believe that blogging helped me make that choice. The choice to study beauty at college. I did it for a year and enjoyed it but then this summer decided that it wasn't for me and moved on to something new. I don't regret it though. I think I would have regretted it more if I hadn't of at least tried it because I always would have been wondering if it was for me. I came to the conclusion that although writing about makeup is a BIG thing for me on my blog, it don't think I want a job in that industry, and that's okay.

I don't want to do the cringe "oh I'm so thankful for all the friends I've met through blogging" thing that everyone does, but I have too because it's true! I genuinely have met some of the best people and even been lucky enough to meet a few this year and hopefully some more next year too.
The numbers, no it's not all about them, but of course I have to acknowledge them. I'm so happy to say that I am the proud recipient of 600 Bloglovin followers. Hard work really does pay off and I'm so thankful to every single one of those 600 people that clicked the little follow link on my profile. I'm also thankful for my Instagram followers, my twitter followers, because with out them I wouldn't be involved in the community like I am.

God I sound like I'm accepting an OBE right now!!

Overall I've had the best 2 years blogging and had so many opportunities come my way because of it. I'll never wrap my head around the fact that real life companies want to send me things to review as though I'm Kylie Jenner or something!

So here's to two years of blogging at It's Kate Rose, and I can't wait for the many more to come!
