ONE YEAR OF KA5THLEEN




Ceeeeeeeelebrate good times, COME ON!

I know what you’re thinking…“What?! Not another Celebration. I haven’t fully recovered from the last!” Well guess what...I hate to break it you, but the streamers are in fact falling, the balloons are flying high and the champagne is pouring...well maybe not literally.

You may be wondering why the celebration as Christmas and New Year are truly over, but incase you may have not realised...ITS KA5THLEEN'S ONE YEAR BLOG-IVERSARY! It has been a year exactly since I took over this tiny space that you have stumbled upon on the big wide net back on the 22nd February 2014! Can you believe it? I have been blogging for an entire year - that's three hundred and sixty five days! And what a time well spent, I have loved every single minute of it!
…Hmm, okay. Perhaps not every minute. There was that one time I wrote a mammoth size of blog posts for them only to magically disappear into cyber space not long after. That wasn’t so great.

However Blogspot, despite that one technical fault, I am still very thankful you have stumbled into my life...or maybe it was I that stumbled into your life? Wait, that doesn't sound right since you are just a blogging platform therefore don't actually have a life... Anyways, irrespective of how we crossed paths, I’m glad we did. You have been my little sanctuary and my wee piece of haven. The place I can empty my thoughts and....

Okay, okay! You can put the sick bucket away, I am not one for soppyness either, instead you might want to fetch a tissue or two!
As some of you may or may not know, this time last year I wasn't in a great place. I was 16 and still picking myself up after loosing a much loved relative. It was during this dull time that I decided to start this blog. Never in my wildest dreams did I think anyone would actually read it! I would of never thought Ka5thleen would be where it is today.

I said in my first post that I didn't know if blogging was something I was going to keep up. Two months down the line in April, it had become clear in my mind that blogging was what I wanted to do in life and with a couple of short breaks here and there, it is still as clear if not clearer that I was meant to do this. I have changed the layout and how I do things a number of times and I still am not 100% happy with it. This is because my mind is always circulating new ideas and ways to improve not only how my blog looks but how it is read. 

The last 12 months have such an incredible journey. I find myself celebrating today with thousands of followers, tens of thousands of views and most importantly a support network of family, friends, fellow bloggers, and 'fans' who have stayed with me every step of the way. It is those special people who have made my blogging experience all the more magical. If it wasn't for your support, comments, emails and encouragement, I probably wouldn't be here celebrating a miraculous milestone. In true Tina Turner fashion...

You’re simply the best!

Lastly, I just want to say I truly appreciate all your support and love and want to thank each of you from the bottom of my heart. It has been a wonderful experience so far. Here’s to, hopefully, many more years of blogging!

*Clink, clink* 
Now let’s sit back, guzzle endless cups of tea and cozy in for a night of movies!
