Today is the day that I finally start my blogger of the week series which means that each week, I will be telling you guys about a fellow blogger that I think you should check out for yourselves. I am doing this because blogging is not easy and I want to play a part in getting peoples work noticed, even if it is a very small part.
kicking it off is ‘Lifelikeagalaxygirl.com‘ run by the insanely talented Alanna who has been blogging on that site since 2017 but had a previous blog that ran for 5 years (the dedication on this girl is unreal guys!).
Alanna very rarely has a day off from her blog and is very interactive with her followers on both her Instagram, Twitter and in the comment section of her blog. You’d think that with her posting almost every day that some posts may not be as intriguing as other, but that is certainly not the case here because her content always has me hooked and her blogmas posts were some the best I read.
Her dedication has meant that she has gained 1,387 followers and an outstanding 14,431 hits on her blog in just over a year and she deserves every bit of her success. Her blog covers a wide range of topics including lifestyle, beauty and even food which means that she has something that everybody can enjoy.
The next section does contain pieces of Alanna’s life that are very personal and sensitive to her. I want to assure you that I asked her permission to include it in this post and her willingness to share it with us goes to show just how brave and amazing she truly is.
I asked Alanna why she started blogging and what she thought of how far she had come in the last year and she replied …
“Hi lovely, I started this blog back in December 2017 but I had previously had a blog that was running for 5 years. I started blogging because I needed an escape from my sexual assault flashback’s, I didn’t want to keep on self harming so I decided to create a new blog. In just 1 year I’ve reached over 14k views and I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing brands. For me it’s not about that though, it’s the fact that I’m still writing and still living.”
She is a true inspiration to me and all bloggers alike so please go and show her some love. I have linked all her social media accounts below so go and follow.
