Blog´s First Birthday & Giveaway

You might have noticed that my blog was offline for almost a day. This will practically explain itself when you have a look around. I switched a few things up and created a new design for my blog. Why now? you might ask. Well, it´s my blog´s first birthday today!

Almost exactly a year ago at 1.35 pm I hit that Publish button for the first time. I had no idea what I was doing, no idea what was coming my way and no idea about the great community I would step into. Apparently, I also had no idea of the English Grammar. In this whole year I have experienced a lot and improved a lot. I finally have some kind of clue what I am talking about, I take quite good pictures and I know some basic things in HTML.

When looking back I always remember that the first few months I wasn´t participating in any social media, didn´t read any other blogs and practically was at the side of an amazing community which had no idea I was even there. Luckily, I found out about Twitter chats and soon I was in the middle of this community that is so different than what anyone would expect. I have never met such a lovely community where everyone is so supportive! Maybe this first time helped me improve my writing until it was acceptable for blogs, who knows.

I can´t say I have reached major milestones in the past year. I am currently at 28 Bloglovin followers and over 50 followers on Twitter. That´s what others get in their first few days. Still I am humbled by those numbers. I didn´t think anyone would ever find my ramblings interesting enough to follow me. I can only thank everyone of you. Every new follower on any platform, every tweet, every new comment, every new pageview makes me smile like that Cheshire cat. It´s a cliché phrase but I actually love all of you wether you´ve been in it for a long time or if you have just found my blog.

This anniversary was also the perfect time to give my blog a make over. I won´t go into details here as you can see most of the changes are not massive. I just felt like I could enhance it a bit more. Also I updated all of my social media. Just to mention it shortly: I have created a Facebook page last year but never used it. Please go over there and like it, so that I am motivated to post on there. You can find all my social media at the end of the blogpost or in the sidebar to your left. I will change my blogging schedule to Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings as this fits my new university life way better.  Coming within the next few days is a new blog domain as I just bought the rights for I hope you still like me after all the changes - pretty please!

I know that I´ve spoiled it in the heading and half of the people clicking on this post are actually just scrolling down to here to find out about the giveaway. I have never done a giveaway and thought this would be the perfect chance. When I was in London a few weeks ago, I did not only pick a lot of things up for myself but also a Topshop gift card for  £25. I will now add in a little surprise as I have not only 25 but three followers more. This is my way to say thank you to all of you. Obviously, this is a giveaway for my followers, that´s why you need to follow me on Bloglovin or on Blogger to participate. The giveaway will be until the 30th Semptember. The winner will be chosen at random. I will announce the winner on the first of October here and will also notify him/her via Twitter.
