3rd Blogoversary!!! Happy Birthday emmadaisy

All of the party related emojis!

Because.......  It's my little blogs 3rd Birthday/Blogoversary!

I had a comment just a few days ago congratulating me on reaching 3 years of blogging and I sat there going "oh my goodness, I've been doing this for 3 years" and it was just a little wow moment.  And a moment for me patting myself on the back because I'm truly proud of myself.


So I started my blog on the 21st of April 2014 and I remember it so well.  My first post So this is a hello I remember writing it up, pressing publish and just sitting there going, this is my first blog post. 

I also remember I was meant to be studying but hey we can't always be a perfect student ;)

So 3 years of blogging.  It's been interesting and not all smooth sailing.  I never started this blog to become "famous" in the online world, far from it.  I love that I have my own little space internet.  And now looking at my previous posts on my blogs birthday (here & here) I feel like I'm repeating myself ahhaha

Blogging has been an incredible experience and I'll continue blogging for as long as I can.  I've "met" some amazing people through blogging.  People who inspire me, make me laugh, people who give provide me with new perspectives on topics and people who are just simply awesome!

I found something a while ago which I have been saving to share today...  When I seriously started thinking about creating a blog, I had a little bit of a brainstorm to generally come up with ideas.  And once my blog was up and running, that page of brainstorming disappeared and here we are now in 2017!  I recently found the page of brainstorming and had a bit of a moment when I was looking at it.


I remember as clear as day writing everything down.  Ah name ideas for this blog.  There were a few name changes over the year hahaha  I remember I thought I was really cool with my web address however someone else had edoublema as their blog name.  I was going to be called An Abundance Of Emma and then found out the legend John Green had a novel called An Abundance Of Katherines so had to think of another name!  I kept coming back to emmadaisy and while the web address for emmadaisy was taken (sigh) all my other social media handles were emmadaisy related so I stayed with emmadaisy.

And I love it.

It's so interesting to see what I was going to blog about.  Beauty and fashion with a lol next to it.....  I have spoken about a few beauty things but haven't really dipped into the fashion side of blogging.  Probably because my wardrobe is a rotating system of what I love and feel comfortable wearing hahahah maybe in the future, if it's something you'd like to see let me know!

While I'm not one to get into the appearance side of blogs, I'll read a post either way - not about to judge on looks - I have loved evolving how my blog has looked.  From using the classic blogger templates at the beginning and then somehow managing to install and tweak two templates to suit me, I'm pretty happy!  My current template is from Kotryna Bass Designs and I am obsessed with it.  For a person who isn't all that fancy with tech on the internet, I was able to install this with no problems and I love how it looks!  Also do love my little header I made on Canva, think it's really sweet!


I have thoroughly enjoyed blogging.  Whether you have been reading my blog for a little or long time, thank you.  I hope I get to keep producing content on emmadaisy for many years to come.

Again, thank you!  :)

Until next time, keep smiling :)  Em xx

PS!  Come and say hello!!! :) x
