Happy birthday to us beautiful people!!

Today Mouldedinsideout celebrates her one year anniversary. If you asked me how a whole year flew by so quick, I would tell you ‘ I have no idea’, but let’s put it this way time flies when you’re having fun and this is what my whole year has been.

This one year anniversary is very important for me. It’s often the case that people quit blogging before a year. So I’m using this moment to celebrate myself and God for how far he has brought me. I will be celebrating tonight!!

My starting point.

The notion of starting a blog was based on trial and error. I travelled to Nigeria for the first time in 15 years last.  Sharing my experience on a platform seemed to be the most sensible and efficient way of saving time. I had it in mind that if the response I got from my friends and family weren’t great then it would be my first and last blog post. Thank God that I got support to keep pushing, however it was unhealthy to think in such a way!! The beginning was tough and sometimes lonely, I got both negative and positive feedback from people.  I was told that I wasn’t consistent enough in relation to posting once a week. A reader got quite upset that I had put incorrect information about Nigeria in a post! On a positive note, I got great feedback from me being transparent about my flaws and striving to focus on my inner beauty in one of my posts. I have come across some amazing readers who commend me for sharing my knowledge as a young woman who is in fact still growing. All these feedbacks have made me a better person not to mention a better blogger.
Growing as a Blogger. 

Blogging has proved to be my form of therapy. Initially, I was shy and sometimes fearful of the whole concept. I wasn’t sure how much of myself I wanted to put out there or if I was ready to deal with the consequences. I wasn’t comfortable taking pictures in public or carrying my camera around  Dublin city centre… but today BLOGGING is my thing! I could take photos anywhere regardless of who watches me and trust me I have had people come and ask me what magazine I am working for!! Most importantly I am most comfortable with the content I create and learnt to grow within it. I have been pushed out of my comfort zone and seen myself grown in so many ways. I just LOVE it!!

Blogging Full-Time.

Prior to setting up a blog page, I did a LOT of research and spoke to other bloggers*. My continuous goal is to impact the lives of people who stop by on Mouldedinsideout. The thought of being able to constantly achieve this goal and to also work at it on a full-time basis is quite tempting. Of course, it’s not as simple as there’s a lot of hard work and dedication involved. But eventually, I do see myself becoming a full-time blogger. It’s a matter of time and the best is yet to come.

Best experience
