2 Years Blogging Giveaway

20th March 2016
2 years blogging

2 YEARS GUYS. 2 YEARS! I can’t believe I’ve now had this blog two years, but here we are, some 550 odd blog posts later. It feels really cool, like I now have a complete archive for the past two years of my life and what I’ve been doing.

During this time my life has completely changed. When I started, I was working full time at the Post Office, miserable. I felt in a rut because I had left University with no plan or direction, and I was never creative any more. I wasn’t very social and I wasted half my time just watching Netflix and doing nothing of any importance. I wasn’t inspired at all. So I decided to finally start a blog; after playing about with the idea for a few months. I’d had previous blogs over the years, but I really wanted one that would stick, that I could love. So I opened up Blogger and typed in ‘Dorkface’.

Fast forward two years and here I am. Things couldn’t be more different! I now work for myself as an illustrator, blogger, and social media assistant (I don’t use that term lightly just FYI, I was professionally trained in the career, and still only consider myself a beginner). A lot of my friends are now bloggers, and I meet new ones all the time. I’ve created The Girl Gang, and it’s brought me so much happiness (and new challenges!), and I can honestly say I now live a very creative life. It’s crazy how much has changed.

That’s all down to you guys, the ones who read this blog. I’m so thankful that anyone wants to visit this little website, let alone leave me comments, follow me, or get to know me. It’s something I’m grateful for every day.

With that in mind, I wanted to do a little giveaway for you guys today to celebrate. So I’ve put together some things I thought you might like, and I’ve tried to add a little of everything; so everyone is happy! There is a list of everything below, along with some ‘rules’ etc, so take a read of that if you could.
