Blog Journey so far!

To say I was over the moon when my Blog was nominated in the Blog Awards Ireland 2014 for Best Newcomer is an understatement!

I started the Blog via a Facebook page initially (Magstyle) following a few comments of "you should start a blog" from a few of my friends (you know who you are, lol) when I'd put an outfit together or gave a tip or recommendation on something.

Eventually I went for it and Magstyle was born in February 2014 this year. I had written a few ideas on a post-it...literally that was how I came up with the name - see photo!!

I shared ideas and photos on the Facebook page and then expanded to Twitter (Mags_Style) and Instagram (Mags_Style).

I then started up on Blogger via Google after a GalaxyStyle Event in May. I attended thanks to Siopaella - a lovely shop and thrift/consignment store here in Dublin. It was my first blogger event and I learnt alot and gained confidence from it.

The blog and associated pages have grown slowly but surely over the past few months - I love it when I get a new like/follower/favourite for something that I have shared. 

I have also had lots of support from family and friends which I am very grateful for.

Meeting fellow bloggers has been a great learning curve as mentioned above and I have made new friends in the process too which is a plus! 

I recently attended a ITWBN event ( thanks to Sinead Carroll and Saibh Eganin Hotel Meyrick in Galway. These events are so important to link like minded people together and show each other support.

When I found out I was nominated it was such a great boost that the work I had been putting in had been recognised.

Word followed through most recently that I had been shortlisted in the category!!

I am very grateful to have progressed as there are so many worthy contenders...I can't really put the feeling into words to be honest - speechless for once!

The next stage is underway to become a finalist...that would just be amazing if it were to happen but either way I am so delighted to have made it this far and hope the Blog grows and more importantly that everyone keeps enjoying it!

Thanks to everyone involved and best of luck to all!!

Bye for now xxx
