A Big Thank You!

This past week I have cried with happiness more than once, that is down to the amazing emails, tweets and messages I have received about being shortlisted in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards. The amount of support I have received has made me feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have such amazing people in my life. From family, Friends to every single person that has taken time out to support me, honestly I cannot put it into words how I feel. 

I also want to thank my local papers for such a lovely feature about the awards and my blog, It meant so much to me to be able to share this with the North West. They are right, blogging is my true passion and I really love everyone that supports me through the journey of my blog. I was in the Lancashire telegraph and The citizen. 

I started my blog in 2012, I wanted to start a new exciting hobby and help myself string words together for my dissertation the following year. I was determined to do well in my third year and not let myself down. I am so glad I started my blog in 2012, not once have I wanted to stop blogging. Its become my baby, I enjoy it and think about blogging 80% of the day. not one thing I would change about that, I am pleased that I can share my space on the internet with you, not once did I think one person would read it. You all mean the world to me and being shortlisted in the awards has made this experience incredible. Having the support to even be shortlisted means the world to me, I want to say a big thank you to my loyal readers, my family and friends. Thank you for all the support, I am feeling very lucky to have you all. 

Every kind word that you say to me makes me tear up, smile and feel extremely happy. Thank you for supporting me on this adventure, I want to keep you all close to me forever. This is not just a hobby, this is a huge part of my life. I have met so many amazing people through blogging and hope to meet more of you soon. I have every kind tweet saved on my laptop, it makes me feel inspired and reminds me how lucky I am to have this support. I hope you will stay with me on this journey, I want to send lots of big virtual hugs your way!!! Thank you for this, it has made my year very special and its so nice to see how proud my mom is of me! <3
