Today, I am doing a post that is a little unusual for me! Why? Because it’s As Life Grows one-year blogiversary, and I am finally ready to share what I’ve been up to with all of my friends and family! I’ve kind of been keeping As Life Grows a secret until now because I didn’t know if it was something that I would be sticking with for a while and because I like to be good at something before I finally show it to others! After a year, I think I’ve gotten this blogging thing down and am pretty proud of what I’ve accomplished so far! So, here goes!
Why I Started As Life Grows:
I started my blog on September 8th, 2015, when I was hanging out in my dorm room waiting on the semester to really get started. You know those first few weeks of school when there’s not really much to do? Yeah, I discovered that blogging was a thing during that time and said hey I could do this! Somehow I came up with a decent name and everything went from there! As my blog began, I wrote what I felt like writing just for the fun of it. After a while, I discovered that my current blogging passion is to write about college life since that is what’s happening in my life at the moment. Soon, I began blogging to help college students thrive during their four years. I also reach out to high school students and incoming freshman in order to help them prepare for their college experience. I started blogging to have a creative way to spend my free time and now it has turned into a place where students from around the world can find answers for any college related questions. I never would have imagined that my blog could reach people all the way in Singapore and beyond!
In one year, I have written over one hundred posts, created a resource library with approximately thirty free printable worksheets, been mentioned in multiple posts as one of the best college bloggers, grown a great social media following, kept up with writing a weekly newsletter, built friendships with other college bloggers and students, created three free email courses, put together two in-depth paid e-courses, and have been able to make some money from my blog. I now get over 1,500 daily page views, over 40,000 monthly page views, and am up to 4,000 email subscribers. I have been able to reach more students than I ever thought possible, and I have loved every busy minute of it!
How It Has Helped People:
Since I started As Life Grows one year ago, I have been able to help thousands of college and high school students improve their studying, organize their life, and reach their goals. I am so thankful for the confidence and opportunities that blogging has given me as well as for the support of my followers, and I am excited to see where it goes after I graduate! So, now you know!
