I’ve made it.
365 days of blogging.
18,550 reads (about 18,200 more than I expected).
Written from England, Estonia, Albania and Italy.
Read by people in 109 countries (see this handy map below, courtesy of ‘WordPress Stats’):
When I started this challenge, I had no idea what to expect. Inspired by my American friend Lisa who had done the same thing, I started somewhat naively – I can safely say that this has been one of the hardest challenges I have ever taken. Every day has been overshadowed by the little blog-demons taunting me, knowing full well that I would have to find the time not only to write, but to attempt (often feebly) to say something of value.
It’s been a phenomenal journey and it’s been a real privilege to share my life with you every day for a year. I certainly won’t be blogging so regularly, but on the bright side, the quality of writing might be a little higher. Thank you so, so much for every single post that you’ve read, commented on or shared. I am so grateful for all the encouragement I’ve received over the course of this journey. Although monumentally tough (for me at least), I couldn’t recommend it more highly for those of you who would like a challenge. Why not give it a go yourself?!
Thanks again, it’s been lots of fun!
