1 Year Blogging Anniversary and a BIG Announcement!

On 17th October 2018 – Megan Says will have been online for ONE WHOLE YEAR. I honestly never thought a year ago that I would be writing this post.

I want to use this post to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported me on my blogging journey. Whether you’re a reader, a subscriber, you follow me on my social channels or you’re a brand who have worked with me this year. I’m SO grateful to you all and I can’t wait to see what the next year holds.

I also want to use this post to reflect on some of the highlights of this year for me and for my blog as a whole.

Stay tuned to the end of this post as I have a BIG announcement about a brand new project that I’ve been working on over the last few weeks!

Blogging Wins

Working With Brands

Working with brands is something I thought only “big” bloggers did. I’m by no means a big blogger. I’m far from it – but in the last year I’ve collaborated with Kalms, AWARE NI, The Olde English Company and Gifts Less Ordinary. And that’s just on my blog!

I have a few more really exciting projects in the pipeline for the next 12 months. I can’t say too much now but I’m buzzing to reveal my plans as soon as I can!

Blogger Events

Attending blogging events and workshops is something I’ve only just started to do. Part of me wishes I’d started sooner but I simply wouldn’t have had the confidence when I first started my blog and I definitely wouldn’t have enjoyed them the way I do now. Highlights for me so far have been the Fenty Beauty and American Madness launches and the Only Just Media Summit.

Guest Bloggers

Another big surprise to me was the number of people who wanted to guest post on Megan Says. I’m so grateful to everyone who has written for me, I know how much time and effort is put into writing posts. If you want to write for Megan Says – visit the contact page and drop me an e-mail. I can’t wait to hear from you.

One Big Life Win!

I can honestly say that starting my blog has been a MASSIVE life win. When I started Megan Says, I was coming out of a very bad place mental-health wise and writing was an amazing distraction and outlet for all of my creative energy. At the time I had no idea how many opportunities would come my way and that I would have the confidence to start attending blogger events – something that I would NEVER have done at the beginning of my journey.

 

ANNOUNCEMENT TIME!

I feel like I’ve been talking about this new project for weeks now but I didn’t want to give the game away until it was ready for launch. I’VE STARTED A PODCAST!!

Being Blogger is going to be an outlet where I share my blogging and social media tips to help my audience (you lovely people!) to increase your engagement and grow your own personal brand online.

Being Blogger Podcast Graphic

This podcast is my baby and I’m so happy to finally share it with you. I’ve create a new page on the top bar so you can always find the latest episode through Megan Says.

*SIDE NOTE: Megan Says is not going anywhere! I’m still going to be posting here weekly – the podcast is going to run ALONGSIDE my blog and other social media!*

I’d love to hear any feedback you have about Being Blogger along with any ideas you might have for future episodes! I want the podcast to add value to YOUR blog and brand – tell me what you want to hear!

Thank you so much again to everyone who has stuck with me over the past year. If you’ve enjoyed reading this post, why not stick around, have a read, listen to my podcast and maybe even subscribe to my newsletter? I’d love to have you as part of my tribe!
