Some Exciting News And How Blogging Has Affected Me

Blog awards Ireland

Today was the day that the Blog Awards Ireland announced the finalists for this year's awards. As I opened up my laptop this afternoon there was an immense amount of butterflies in my stomach. I was pretty sure that I wouldn't make it but lo and behold there was my blog written in pink letters underneath 'Best Youth Blog'. It was a very proud moment and I feel so blessed to be on that list with so many other amazing Irish bloggers. There really is so much talent in this country and I'm so happy to be apart of the #irishbloggers community.

Just a word of warning, this is where things get soppy folks.

 When I started this blog I hadn't any intentions or expectations for it. I had no idea what the content was going to be about or what I wanted the design to look like etc. The main reason why I started this blog was because I had been out of school for nearly two years due to anxiety and I felt like I didn't really have a purpose in life any more. I didn't leave the house very much, I didn't see my friends, I didn't have any hobbies and I was just feeling very down. I've always believed that happiness is a choice and I've always tried to choose to be happy but at the end of last year I wasn't happy at all. So one night I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and to do something productive and worthwhile. The idea that stood out to me the most was starting a blog and then....... clionahill.com was born.

Writing for my blog, my readers and the blogging community have brought so much happiness into my life in the last few months. Blogging has also made me believe in myself and it's made me determined to get better and go back to school. All you lovely bloggers inspire me and motivate me everyday..... so thank you! K, I'll stop now. Ha ha!

Wow that was a whole load of soppiness right there ha! But I hope you enjoyed it anyway, I know it was kind of different but I'll see you tomorrow for my usual skincare rambles ;-) Have a great weekend lovelies <3


Love,
Cliona xx
