Ellie's Ramblings 3rd Birthday!



Today marks three years since I sat at my laptop and wrote my first blog post. It's scary to think it's been three years since I first put my heart into something I was convinced nobody would read! I remember my boyfriend at the time, friends and family being quite confused as to what on earth I was doing but I knew it was something I felt passionate about.

I was the girl who would sit and watch her Mum apply makeup and long for my own beauty stash. (Eventually I remember my Mum taking me to Boots to get a few things in the hope it would stop me using hers!) My love for all things beauty has grown since starting my blog, it opened my eyes to a community of like minded people that are more than happy to read about a lipstick or talk about the newest makeup launch.
I started my blog at a truly crap time in my life where things were very unstable. Having a blog to focus on was great as it was the only thing I felt I had control over. I used blogging as a way to destress and channel my emotions, talking about beauty became a kind of therapy for me. When I went through a horrible time my blog was an escape and my source of happiness. Now life is much more settled and I'm proud that three years on I'm still hear rambling on about things I love and want to share with you!

Not only has my personal life changed a lot in the past three years but the blogging community has shot to a whole new level! Most of my friends blog in some way now whereas back in 2012 it was unusual to put yourself online. The standard of blogging now is incredible. Bloggers are achieving amazing things and it's lovely to be a teeny part of the community.

Ellie's Ramblings is a massive part of my life, it's been constant and something that's purely mine. The love I have for my tiny little internet space is huge and although nowadays I sometimes feel not up to standard it's not something I can imagine myself ever giving up. If anything it makes me want to work to make my blog better and more diverse.

Blogging has created some wonderful opportunities for me that I'll forever be grateful for, it's helped boost my confidence and it's led to me making some amazing friends both online and in the real world. I've attended incredible events, worked with some amazing brands, been nominated for an awards and experienced things I never thought possible!
If you ever wonder if you should start your own blog then just do it! You won't ever regret it.

So I want to say a massive thank you, whether you've never read my blog before or are a regular reader it truly means so much to know that you have had a peek at my rambles. When I get a new comment or tweet etc from someone it makes my day, your support honestly means the world.
Thank you!

I'm sorry for the utter rambling mess of this post but it's how I started and probably how I'll always be!

    Your blog is one of my favourites - I've read Ellie's Ramblings for years and you're always so honest, friendly and passionate in your posts. I never feel like you're only blogging for the free products or for more followers - you seem so genuine and like you really put your heart into your blog.
