TURNING ONE

We made it! Midnight and Lace turns one today (well I'm saying it's today- it was definitely around this date!) I can't believe I've had this lil blog of mine for an entire year now. If I'm honest I never thought I'd make it this long- I didn't think I'd have the dedication to stick it out but I have never been prouder of something I've done.


It's funny to look back and reflect on the journey I've been on over the past year with this blog. When I started this blog I had next to no self-confidence and the thought of posting my face on the internet for others to see terrified me! It took me a good few months to post a picture of my face on here and now I'm guessing you're all pretty sick of seeing this goth's face! I never realised how much having a blog has allowed me to progress into the person I've always wanted to be and for the first time in a really long time- I'm really content with my life. I'm happy with myself, I have gained so much more confidence than before and I've finally learnt to embrace and be proud of the body I have.


One of the things I love most about blogging is the incredible family I've become apart of here on the internet. The blogging community is something I am so proud to be apart of. It's amazing how you can feel so alone and unlike everyone around you and then discover that there are people all over the world that share similar interests and like the same things as you! Through blogging I've had the opportunity to meet so many amazing bloggers that inspire me so much!

I've reached so many milestones in my first year of blogging- which I didn't even realise! Just the other week I came on to see that over 16.6 thousand of you have looked at my lil blog since I first created Midnight & Lace a year ago! I have had so many wonderful opportunities through blogging and I am beyond grateful to each and every single one of you for joining me on this journey!


Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that anyone would want to read what I have to say or see the content I like creating. I just want to say a huge thank you for your never ending support! It amazes me every time I see someone has read one of my posts or taken the time out of their day to leave me a comment to show their support! I remember when my blog first got 10 views in a day and it made me so happy because the idea of 10 people looking at my blog was huge! Now Midnight and Lace sometimes gets 300-400 page views in a day! That is fucking insane!


All I can say is thank you! Thank you to anyone who has ever read one of my posts. Thank you to anyone who has left me a comment. Thank you for sharing my posts on Twitter. For liking my Instagram posts. Thank you for showing my blog and I so much love and kindness, you will never know what your support means to me. Thank you for supporting a goth who never thought she would ever find a place where she fit in. Thank you for teaching me that it's okay to be different.


Thank you for everything and here's to the next year- it's going to be one hell of a ride!

Till next time,
