1. This was a really good read. I can relate to a lot of things you’ve mentioned, particularly about feeling that you are a disappointment in person! I love writing because it lets me be myself, much more than I am able to be in person. You’ve got a really interesting story and I’m looking forward to reading more on your blog. #bigpinklink

  2. I found this really interesting, none of us really talk about why we blog or what we have experienced with it so far. You have grown and achieved so much! I hope you know that and are proud of yourself because you really should be. Xx #bigpinklink

  3. What a great read! It’s really inspirational to read about your blogging journey – I’m only 6 months in and already having my major self-doubt days, it’s great to see that it is something you can keep going with, and growing with, and still enjoy years in! #TriumphantTales

  4. Aww I’ve loved reading your blogging journey! I’ve nodded along to parts – the bit about honesty providing stats, and monetising the blog meaning that you’ll never write as freely – and read on in awe at others (parts like Orlando, and even finding your niche to a certain extent). Thank you so much for sharing this amazing journey with #DreamTeam and congratulations on ten years!

  5. It was so wonderful to read this, as we are at opposite ends of the spectrum. I only set up my website at the end of last month and am on a huge learning curve. I think it is so important what you say – blogging is first and foremost about expressing yourself openly and honestly. I agree that monetising a blog can detract from this. Here is to finding the right balance! #BrilliantBlogPosts

  6. Lovely story and happy anniversary! I think we can all relate to the troubles of first starting the blog, finding our niche and discovering the opportunities. Hope the next 10 years will make your Mum proud, she left a great legacy. Love <3

  7. I really enjoyed reading this Kate! Your story is really inspirational. We all go on such a huge learning curve when we start these blogs. It’s so easy to jack it all in at the start when we realise just how much work is involved, but it really is a case of ‘you get out what you put in!’. Thanks for sharing your story with us 🙂 Thanks for joining us at #TriumphantTales – hope to see you again Tuesday! 🙂

  8. Wow ten year – go you! I’ve been blogging for two and it feels like forever, I can’t imagine ten! It sounds like you’ve had quite a blogging journey and it was so interesting to read! Thank you for joining us at #bigpinklink

  9. What a journey you have been on with your blog. It’s so great that you have found your niche and that you now know where you are headed on your next journey. Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
