Just Morgs turns 1




Hello lovelies! You can probably tell from the title, but today is my 1st Blogging Birthday here on Just Morgs!! Woah. One year ago today I hit that publish button, not having any idea of what the outcome would be. And now today I sit by the computer hitting that publish button over-excitedly each week, scrolling through comments with the goofiest smile on my face and it's all down to you guys! A lot of people forget this but I am just 13 years old and so it feels crazy for me to think that at this moment I now have 27,407 blog views, 1229 comments and 191 gorgeous followers reading this right now. CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY. I don't fully understand how anyone can enjoy reading my rambles about cacti and travel (basically me in a nutshell haha) but I guess I must be doing something right! 

As well as simply the numbers though, I feel so grateful to have met so many friends through blogging. especially the #teenageteam girls who I love talking to all the time. I want you to know that every comment or message has meant the absolute world to me, whether you've been following my blog since the start or you've only just clicked on it today.

 Just Morgs has gone through many 'phases' in the past year (most of them embarrassing to look back on hehe!) from my vv cringy first posts (ughhh!), to my plain blogger templates, bad quality pics... and back round to where I am today. I've made a little collage above of my posts since I began, do you recognize a few of my oldest ones? What was the first post of mine you ever read by the way? Many of my first posts have been put on draft by now but I love to read over them sometimes and look at how nervous I was first started compared to how I'm typing to you all now. It makes me realise how much more confident I've become from just one year of blogging and all those mushy-feels keep coming back to me whenever I read them hehe!

Oh and this wouldn't be a proper Just Morgs B'day post without a whole lotta cheesy thankyou's right? Really though, thanks to all the companies who've reached out to me during my first year of blogging, all the lovely bloggers I've collaborated with, and the gorgeous #teenageteam girls who never fail to make me smile with the twitter chats and just so inspiring. Also to Sofia (One of my earliest online friends who's been reading my rambles since the start!) and Olivia (A 'real-life friend' and amazing blogger too) who's always been there for me to ask random blogging advice and will tolerate my weirdness! And once again, thank you to you lovelies too!

 Everyone in this little (or not so little!) Just Morgs family is so positive and kind and I honestly think making this blog was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Sending big internet hugs to every single one of you, and I hope you stick by me until next year and even more beyond that!

Love.
