I'M IN THE GANG! | What #girlgang has done for me


First of all, I want to say a massive thank you to the wonderful Jemma over at Dorkface for making the #girlgang and bringing the blogging community that extra bit closer. Seriously, if you don't know what the #girlgang is, you should head over to Jemma's blog right now and get your ass signed up.

I'm still pretty new to the whole blogging scene and I'm still trying out new post styles and I'm trying to not get overwhelmed by the amount of stuff a blogger has to do. Like, why did nobody bother telling me how much work actually goes into blogging? I stupidly thought I'd be able to get away with taking some semi-decent photos of a bit of makeup, write up this and that and that'll be it. Oh my god I was wrong - the social media, the HTML, the ideas - there is so many other things that bloggers have to do and you never get to see it until you actually start, it was slightly mind boggling to me.

I'm so happy though that I started blogging when I did. I wasn't sure if people were going to like me or I was going to 'fit in' with the blogging community but literally a few days (it was actually three days) after I set up my new Twitter ready for blogging and had my blog coded and ready to go, I saw the #girlgang hashtag pop up on Jemmas twitter - she was one of the first bloggers I wanted to follow because I mean, who wouldn't? I rushed to sign up to the #girlgang immediately and made it my duty to join in the Twitter chat as well as it would be my first one ever.

The amount of feedback and lovely people I have spoke to and seen has been amazing. I've not missed a single one of the chats yet (fingers crossed I don't miss one for a while!) and I'm constantly shown more and more great people and bloggers who I feel connected to. The #girlgang has got me talking to other bloggers I would've been petrified to tweet if it wasn't for the chats and I've followed so many blogs that I read constantly. 

Basically, this post is just me pouring out gratitude from every orifice over the fact that the #girlgang was made and that I got to be a part of it as soon as my blogging journey began, and I'm happy that its always there to keep me motivated to not only blog, but to be a better person and to appreciate everything more!
If you haven't seen the #girlgang or signed yourself up, get to it!  You can find out more about it here and sign up to it over here. Oh, and I'm sorry if this post is a little sappy and bit of a silly read but I just felt the need to express myself!

Are you part of the #girlgang? How has it made you feel?

  8. I'm definitely going to need to look into this girl gang! I feel like since I've starting blogging the one thing I don't do as much as I want to is to talk to other bloggers and actually make some friends. I keep exploring and finding new blogs that I love and want to support but I'm always too shy to talk to the actual blogger.

    1. Yes yes yes! We all understand one another and that we're all reaching for similar things and there's no nastiness between people and everyone celebrates when others hit goals, its so heart-warming!x

  15. Aww, that's so nice! I've seen #girlgang on Twitter but I had the feeling it was mainly a beauty blogger thing and not a huge amount of my content is beauty based. But maybe I'll go and check it out! Thanks for the post x
