Happy 4th Birthday

I’ve been writing my blog now for four years exactly, and it has slowly become more a part of me at each step of the way. Rather like a journal, it allows me to look back over some of my favourite places and memories from that time, and know that they are stored somewhere I can return to. It has allowed me to keep friends and family up to date with what I’ve been doing if I’ve been away travelling, or just because we don’t see each other as much. It has prompted opportunities for discussion and helped me find a space to continue writing and improving my photography. View Post

Happy 3rd Birthday!

Three years ago today I started blogging and I say it every year but so much has happened in the time since. My blog started as a personal post-dissertation project. I was so shy about having created it that I didn’t actually share it with anyone until I’d already been writing for a year. Since then, my audience has grown and I continue to get as much, if not more enjoyment, from writing my blog than when I first started out. I like writing these birthday posts as an opportunity to reflect on what has happened since I graduated and looking at how my blog has changed. Being Buttons is still a very small corner of the internet, but I love the opportunity it has given me to write about the things I enjoy and share them with other people. View Post

Happy Birthday – 2 years old!

I’ve now been blogging for two years, which is scary in many ways as it means that it is two years since I handed in my dissertation and finished my degree! However, in those two years I have managed to fit in an awful lot more than I thought I would. I’ve been doing plenty of travelling, working hard and earning money, bought a car, completed multiple online courses to help me learn more about what I’m interested in and much more besides.
