I've Been Blogging For 8 Years

It only hit me the other day that I've been blogging for 8 years what in my eyes is crazy and what a journey it's been and one I hope to continue sharing with you all for many years to come.


My Blogging Journey


I started blogging back in 2015 after reading loads of different blog posts from lifestyle, travel and more. Some of them still blog today and sadly some of them have stopped.


When I started blogging I had no clue what I was doing or anything and at the time I was running my blog on an old Samsung phone and well at the time that wasen't easy.


I then got an iPad which made blogging a little easier but I was very limited on what I could do. I then got a Macbook a few years later and started to do all my blog posts on there and well that made blogging a load easier for me.



When I started blogging my blog had the "wordpress.com" bit in the domain what at the time was fine but I didn't feel like it was mine because at the time WordPress had control of what Ad's they could add to my blog. After waiting around about 4-5 years I was finally able to get my very own domain that WordPress had no control over and that's when my blog domain switched from "jackdeyes.wordpress.com to "jackdeyes.com" and as many other bloggers know when you get to fully own your blog and have your own Domain it is a very exciting time for a blogger.



I then reached a milestone of 1,000 blog posts which at the time was incredible. In 2021 I moved to Wix which in my eyes is way better than WordPress because they are better priced and you can do what you like to your blog there are no limits but sadly I lost most of my blog posts. I've also made some incredible friends who do blogging as well and I've worked with some amazing brands and even attended some blogging events.


Longside that I also have the most amazing flowers some of who have been following and reading my blog way back from 2015. I'd also just like to thank you all for the ongoing support of my blog. None of this would have been possible and I wouldn't be here blogging still if it wasn't for you all
