8 Years Of Zoey Olivia

Firstly, happy Friday all. Secondly, blimey, eight whole years of blogging (plus the years before that on other another account)! Happy birthday little blog.

I still love blogging, however, I don’t have as much time for it as I once did, I post once or twice a week these days. But it seems less and less people are blogging and supporting each other in recent times which makes me a little sad.

Everything is instant now, which I totally get. People want reviews on Instagram and TIKTOK as my fellow blogging friend Beautylymin said on a post a few weeks back. Although I have a feeling blogging will make a come-back as people aren’t using Instagram as much anymore as it’s not reaching their audience.

Any who, I just wanted to thank those who still visit my little corner on the internet, and those that comment every week, fortnightly or monthly. Your support means everything and it’s a reason why I continue to blog.

The blogging community is such a fab place to be in, so you’re ever thinking I want to start a blog, do it! There’s plenty of room for more bloggers in our community.

On a separate note, I’m on annual leave from this Monday till the 22nd September. It’s my first proper break and holiday abroad in absolutely ages (2 years). I’m very much looking forward to relaxing, eating cheese and drinking wine.

I won’t be blogging during that time, but may have a few posts planned, we’ll see what I can do. A much needed break from work and blogging.

In other news, I’m deeply saddened by the news of the Queen’s passing, such a sad time. My thoughts go out to the royal family.

    I enjoyed 2 weeks in London in July ( after 2 years of not being able to leave Australia) , not nearly long enough for such a fun place . Love the history , public transport, museums so easy to get around . Definitely will go back . Loved England.

    Happy Blogiversary! I think that fewer comments is due to Bloglovin being a pile of crap and people not being able to keep up with blogs in the usual way. I really hope that blogging makes a comeback because I really enjoy reading them (and writing, of course!). Enjoy your well deserved break x
