Ash Real As It Gets' 1st Blogiversary!

11:56 AM


Today, the 5th of October marks the first anniversary of my blog - Ash Real As It Gets. It's crazy to think that I've been running this blog for 365 days now! Mind blowing, crazy that times flies so fast. This time last year, I was sitting on my couch creating my blog not expecting to truly committing to it. I'm the type of person who gets bored of something pretty easily, so me still running this blog and writing every single week has led me to one answer; blogging is my passion and I hope that I'll still run it for the next few years.

As of last week, I've reached 50,000 views in my blog. I know that it doesn't seem much to some of you, but to me, it means a lot. I'm just a small town gal, confused as hell to where my life is heading, and to be able to know that people from all over the world stops by my blog to maybe just scroll through my posts or read it makes me feel so happy. So thank you for all your loveliness for the past year. Whether you're here every single week to read my posts, or only occasionally, you're the bomb.com! I can't thank you enough.


Blogging is something that I enjoy coming back to every single day - just like reading, because it has both things that I love most in the world; writing and photography. Mixing up those two together brings a very happy Ashley. Obviously, I've had days or even weeks where I felt uninspired to write anything and that has got to be the worst feeling in the world. Blogging rut suck, period. But when you discover your passion once again at the end of the tunnel, it works out in the end and that's all that matters! I think it's normal to go through a 'meh' period, even doing the thing you love.

I've learn a lot about blogging - one of the most important one I got is that you can't ever judge a person by its cover and that you only have one life to live on this Earth, so don't waste your time doing stuff that you're not happy doing. I was thinking about that whilst on the freeway, and it boggles my mind that each one of us are only ever going to be this Earth for once only, we're not like cats who has nine lives. So you might as well live your life to the fullest, don't ever drown yourself with toxic people around you and try to worry less about everyone else's opinions about you because at the end of the day, it's your life! I've realized now that worrying over someone else's opinions on me for a long period of time is just a waste of time and energy in my life. Might as well just block them out and live my life the way I want it to be!




At the end of the day, I really hope that stopping by my blog makes you happy. And I really am hoping to up my photography & writing skills in the near future. Be sure to comment down below what you'd like to see around here! They're much appreciated.

Once again, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for sticking around with me! Here's to more success in the future. Cheers! 🍻

Much love, Ashley xx
