Almost Posh Turns 3

September 21, 2017

So this week marked the blog’s third birthday – that means three years of blogging, Instagramming, Facebooking and attending events all under the Almost Posh banner and let me tell you, it has gone so super quickly!



I don't know who those girls are but they look like they're having fun.

I’ve read a couple of articles that reckon the average blog is dead in the water after 100 days – that’s about 3.5 months. So I’ve well and truly beaten the average which is heartening considering I started blogging not really knowing why or how or the actual point of it all and have picked up things along the way.

If you’ve been with me for a while, you’ll know that I started off blogging at work and was able to bust out three posts a week without any trouble. However, after I left that job and took up a new position that required me to actually, you know, work for the company, it dropped to two a week, then one a week, then the kind of ad hoc position we’re in today. I still do enjoy blogging when I have something to blog about but I’ve found there seems to be a bit of fatigue out there at the moment and I’m wondering – do you even blog, bro? Would you rather read stuff on the platform you’re on – like Insta or FB without popping out to a separate site? These are the things I’m considering; trying to get the most value for Almost Posh with my very limited time that doesn’t allow for a lot of participation in link-ups or commenting on other blogs.

I’ve been lucky enough to receive some bits and pieces and be invited to fun things over the years and, not going to lie, that is also quite an enjoyable perk but as I have no doubt mentioned before, blogging and the associated socials have opened up a world of meeting new people and making some real-life friends that I have hung out with on a number of occasions. This has been the number one highlight because let’s be real, it’s hard to make new friends when you’re over 30 outside of work and when it’s people who are into the same stuff (like blogging, social media, fashuns, beauty prodz and not judging you for putting your outfits on Insta) then it’s a win-win.

The fashion inspo and motivation to bust out decent outfits is also a big plus, even if I have a defined lack of decent photo wall at my house. Behold: my trademark arch . . .

As for the future direction of Almost Posh, I am hanging in there! Keep on hanging with me and many genuine thanks for your comments, likes and shares over the three years so far.

What are your thoughts regarding the future of blogging?
