Teen Diary is a blog I created in the Summer of 2012, as my own little corner of the internet where I shared my thoughts, passions, creativity and ambitions without a thought in mind that anyone would care to read a word of it. To me, it was my online journal and for the past 3 and a half years, that's exactly what it has been.
Slowly, I saw the numbers go up. I gained readers and followers and it was my little community. People loved what I loved and they waited for me to talk about it. Teen Diary was then recognised by companies and was considered an influencer which was very rewarding.
I've learnt so much by just expressing my thoughts on a little webpage linked on the internet. I've learnt that I want to become a journalist and continue expressing my thoughts, both on paper and online. I've learnt how to be confident. I've learnt that I can be different but special in my own way. I've learnt how to take better photographs. I've learnt what I'm passionate about, how creative I can be and where I can take my ambitions. I've learnt to say what I think and not hesitate. I've learnt that if I have a say, even on the tiniest part of the internet, I should voice it. But most importantly, I've learnt to always be myself and to accept 'me' as I am.
I started the blog when I was about to turn 17 and at the time 'Teen Diary' was perfect. I still love it and it will always be my brand but unfortunately, I'm no longer a teen anymore and as I grow up, my blog grows with me. Twenty Once was a name I had in mind since the day I turned 20 and it has finally become the new name of Teen Diary.
With the new name, comes a new ending signature to my blog. Little did I know on my last post, that 'xoxo Teen Diary' was my very last and to be honest, I will need time to get used to that, which will require loads of backspaces and deletes.
The little teen has become a young lady and it is very exciting. Meet Twenty Once, I hope you like it!
