My 100th blog post!!

Well, it has certainly been a while since I last sat down and wrote a blog post. The last one being when I was on holiday in June, which you should definitely check out if you haven’t already! Fear not, a life update is coming soon if you’re wondering what has kept me away but for now, let’s celebrate my 100th blog post!

I know that might not seem like a lot to some people, but for me that’s mad! When I started my blog nearly 3 years ago, I never expected to stick with it or for it to grow as much as it has. I absolutely love my blog and I am so so proud of it. I really feel like it is my little corner on the internet and no one can take that away from me.

To celebrate this moment, I am going to share 10 of my favourite and most popular posts! For any new readers of mine, please do take some time to flick through the following posts and leave a cheeky comment for me!

The Morning After the Night Before || My First Post

Of course, I had to include my first ever blog post! I literally just woke up one morning and randomly decided to start a blog. I just made a WordPress account, with no research, and started typing. If I could tell my past self how far my blog would come, I wouldn’t believe it.

Down That Road

A poem that I wrote about my diagnosis with ME/CFS. I wrote this as part of a Creative Writing module at University, but because I was so proud of it, I wanted to share it with all of you as well! If you have been diagnosed with a chronic illness, please read this and let me know what you think!

Rest Day vs Bad Day

This post went viral on The Mighty (well, it went viral for me) so is one that I am very proud of.

Time Management with a Chronic Illness

This blog post is definitely my most popular blog post within my own blog. I posted it over a year and a half ago and it still has views every single day!

5 Tips to Help with Anxiety

I wrote this post when I was really struggling with anxiety. I had two presentations to do for university which was resulting in mega meltdowns and panic attacks and I used all the tips I shared in this post to help myself. Reading this back reminds me that I am much more capable than I ever believed myself to be.

10 Tips for the Chronically Ill Student

I used my experience with being a chronically ill student myself to (hopefully) help other students in similar positions! This was another one of my favourites and more popular posts as it seemed to help so many people that were considering going to University.

Thanks Dad!

My first collaboration with a brand! Celebrating Father’s Day by taking a trip down memory lane with my Dad.

All Time Low

I literally cry when I read this post. I was at such a low point in my life. I was really unhappy in my University house, I was struggling with my health and I hated my body. I was just miserable. Reading this post reminds me that I can get through the hard times, no matter how hard they seem.

Weight Gain & Body Positivity

As I just mentioned, this past year I have really struggled with my body image. This post was a turning point for me, trying to become more accepting of my body and starting to embrace it. When I have a day where I despise my body, I read this post to remind myself that its not that bad.

“I don’t do it for sympathy”: Why I started my blog

One of my more recent posts that I wrote was another little throwback. A reminder to my readers and to myself abut why I started my blog in the first place. To share my struggles with chronic illness. to help myself get through the hard times. To celebrate the good times.

This blog means the absolute world to me, and I want to thank every single one of my readers for supporting me. I do this for you as much as I do it for me and I love it when I hear from you. I would love to know what sort of things you want to see on my blog so please let me know in the comments!

Thank you again for reading my 100th blog post and I hope you enjoyed it!

Until next time,
