The landscape of blogging, and online content creation, has certainly changed over the years - especially with the stratospheric rise of Instagram.

Next month will mark the one year anniversary of me leaving my job in event management to work on my blog - and Instagram - full-time. Part of me can't believe it's been a year because it's seriously flown by so quickly, but a bigger part of me can't believe I've only been doing this full time for a year.
