I can't believe it! This day last year I created Dolly Dowsie when I messed up the html codes on my old blog La Belle Dame Sans Merci and thought a fresh start was needed and voila, Dolly Dowsie was born. I have had so much fun over the past year documenting my ups and downs, my adventures of motherhood, my likes and loves, my favourite beauty and makeup products, my family days out and everything else in between. My blog has become my little scrapbook, a diary of sorts, a place to be myself and share all I love with the world. I am astounded by the milestones my little blog has reached within this year. When I began writing I never knew that so many people would want to follow my ramblings, take an interest in my life and Tyler Lee, compliment my photography and show me so much support. I love the fact that I know the majority of my blog commentors by name and that I have made some friends through a hobby which I really do enjoy.
Some of my favourite blogging moments from this past year have been -
Being made Netmums Blog of the Week for my super personal post, a letter to my little angel baby D - I'll Always Remember You.
Capturing all of my baby boy's milestones and monthly update on my blog - Posts about Tyler Lee.
Reaching 200,000 page views and almost 26,000 since then.
Reaching over 3,600 blog subscribers - I love that so many of you want to keep up to date with my posts!
Getting to review for some of my favourite beauty and children's brands.
Meeting some of my fellow Irish beauty bloggers at my first ever blog meet up - Cork Bloggers Meet Up.
Thank you so much to everyone who has been part of my blogging journey and who has showed their support through reading my blog, commenting on blog posts and interacting with me on my social media accounts, I truly am blessed to have such wonderful, loyal and interactive blog followers.
Here's to another year of adventures, happy memories, reviews, giveaways and hopefully more ups than downs!
Happy 1st Birthday bloggie, have a good one!
