First Blog Anniversary + GIVEAWAY

by - 9:00:00 AM

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear MM, happy birthday to you. 

Hello lovelies,

It's been a year, a whole freaking year, since I started this blog and I'm so happy that I can be here with all of you now and thank you for the experience you've given me throughout this time. I started to blog when I had to deal with some problems and life changing decisions. I cut most of my friends and family off and just needed to dig myself a hole, be invisible and run away to my fiction world. I was preparing this blog for such a long time, but this bottom of my life made me to actually write my  very first post for Michelle Morchella and I'm so glad that I did. Thanks to this blog I got my life back together and it made me to enjoy my life again. I connected with so many amazing and kind beauty enthusiastics in blogging community who showed me that people can be nice and supportive. 

It seems like it was yesterday when I type first "hello" to the world, but so much has happened. The concept of Michelle Morchella changed from only eye look posts to more reviews, Sunday Survey and Monthly Recap series. My camera setting has improved a lot (but don't get me wrong, I'm still not satisfied enough and I have a lot of things to work on) and my makeup skills changed and improved. I started to use Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest again. I've learnt how to chat with other people on Twitter, how to promote in link up parties and how to work with sooo many websites connected to blog. I found out how to make my own header, how to code links and how to improve SEO.

Blog gave me so much, but it took a lot as well. I spend more time on my laptop and phone, being addicted to social medias I always tried to avoid. I've had some downs, when I didn't know what to write and how to connect with readers again. I wanted to give up when I was loosing my fake followers, when I didn't reach numbers I dreamt about, but then I realised that this is not about numbers, but about my passion. I am here for myself and for meeting friends who have the same interests  like I do and for reading and discovering new blogs.


I would love to do a little throwback and introduce you the five most viewed posts:

    1. Thank you. I think many starting bloggers stopped just because of the numbers. It's so easy to give up.
