Wow. I am speechless. I never in a million years thought I would have poured my passion and heart into something like this blog, and to see it grow over time.
I will never forget how this journey started. My senior year of high school, I sat in the chair in our living room with my parents and I was thinking about how cool it would be to start a blog. I never had any plans for it, and I actually kept it completely secret. I posted random things to it and I never posted about them.
Then, one year ago, I finally decided I was going to change that. I was happy with where I was in life and I wanted to bring that confidence to a whole new level by making a whole new blog where my name was in the title, where I posted about it to social media, and I made an Instagram account for it. I decided I was diving in and boy did I?! It was in that moment when Kylie Morgan was created and it has been quite the journey from that moment. I have redesigned, rebranded, and refocused so much over the year to find a look that I love and have confidence in, and now I am here- celebrating a year (EEP!).
Throughout the time, I have learned so many things. So many life lessons and so many little things I did not know about myself.
I learned that I will never settle. I will never be the person to accept one thing for too long and I realized that. It seemed like every month, I was changing the look of my blog until October when I settled on this. And guess what, it will probably change again. Because I am always looking for a chance to improve and to move forward.
I learned so much about my true friends who will support me in all of the crazy things I add to my plate. My friends have pre-read posts, been my personal photographer, and loaned out their closets to me. I cannot be more grateful for them throughout this adventure and for always being there for me when I need some honestly.
It is so hard to find the confidence in today's world to start something new. I did not sleep from anxiety after I started my Instagram account and followed people from home. I was terrified that it would come back and bite me in the booty as people would make fun of me. But you know what, I don't care. I am SO happy with what I am doing. If people want to make fun of me, then do it. But I am making new opportunities for myself and I am meeting new people along the way, so I am genuinely and unapologetically happy and not sorry for loving this blog.
Blogging can be one of the most rewarding things though when you get over that fear and post and you see the statistics light up. Knowing that people are loving what you are writing and that people want to follow you is every beginning blogger's dream. And every day that I wake up to a notification, I am living my dream.
With that dream still in action, I have so many plans in mind for the miles ahead. It's hard to say when they will become plans in action since I am a full time college student and trying to live a social life while passing classes, but I have a lost of things I want to accomplish before celebrating two years. I want to continue to pursue blogging and making more connections with businesses and boutiques that I believe in. I want to become more active on Instagram and start doing more stories and posting more so I can be transparent with my followers. I want to make my page more professional and find a photographer to work with to bring only the best material to the table for you all.
But with all of that being said, there is only so much I can promise you now. I can promise you that I could not be more thankful for all of you readers, subscribers, and followers up to this point. You have been there through thick and thin in this journey and I am so thankful for each and every one of you all who have stuck around. This is such a rewarding experience and I will never get tired of seeing our all's views roll in after working on a post.
I cannot express how thankful I am for this year. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
