3 Year Blogiversary Giveaway

Happy Birthday, Slayuniqueness!!!

Wowza, 3 years already? I can’t believe it’s been 3 years. Time sure does fly by when you’re having fun, right?


A little story

A month before I published my first blog post, I decided to do some research on what platforms to use. I jotted down ideas for my first 10 posts and started drafting my ‘Welcome Readers” blog post.

The events building up to my first post were rather unusual. The internal conflict I had with myself was unsettling. I had major anxiety, to say the least, but I can sit back and laugh about it now. Yolanda from 3 years ago doubted herself and was afraid of taking risks.

This may come as a surprise to you but my first blog post was published by mistake. I was navigating through the WordPress site to familiarise myself with the functions and I felt so overwhelmed. A decision to postpone this idea to a month later because I just wasn’t confident enough (procrastinator much?) got me feeling really down. And then it happened, I (in my absent-mindedness) had pressed the publish button.

Not long after that my phone went off and I received a notification that my post had been shared on Facebook. My husband then sent a message to congratulate me. I sat in silence and completely baffled at the current situation I found myself in. I can still recall the heart palpitations I experienced at that moment. The universe knew that this was a deep desire, so I believe that this “accident” happened for a reason.

And here we are, 3 years later and I’m still loving everything about this journey. I truly LOVE what I do and I appreciate every one of you for following, liking and commenting on my blog posts, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter content. Thank you for the tags, retweets, likes and being so supportive. Without you guys, my journey would be purposeless and unfulfilling. I can’t THANK YOU enough!
