500 Followers Milestone + Questions!

500 Followers Milestone + Questions!

So I have 500 blog followers now! It is such an amazing blogging milestone to reach. Thank you so much for following this little corner on the internet! I truly think this is the fastest growth I have ever experienced on any social media platform. WordPress.com is great and I’m really enjoying the community here. Thank you all so much!


It’s getting pretty hard to know everyone that follows me but I will try as much as possible to keep engaging with everyone that follows me. I see so many different followers on my page. Where are you from? Comment below!

For those stumbling on my blog for the first time, Hi! My name is Pearl and I’m a 20 year old from Nigeria. I have a Bachelors degree in Biomedical Science and I am starting my Masters in Biotechnology at McGill University this fall! Although I am a big lover of biology, I have many other passions like music, movies, beauty, reading and travelling. I mostly blog about beauty, travelling and lifestyle on my blog. Β Take a look around!

Blog Updates
I recently added an RSS feed subscription for people not on WordPress (side bar) so you can keep up with my blog.

I also started a Pinterest and Facebook Β page for The Pearly Life. Please like and follow me there if you so choose!

Finally, follow me on my Instagram! I will be sure to follow back if you drop a quick “Hey from the blog!” on one of my pictures. Thank you πŸ–€πŸ–€

    Congratulations on reaching 500 bloggers… I have recently started blogging… I could relate to you as have a similar background and also fond of blogging… can you share some tips how engaged with people…

    • May 31, 2017 / 8:50 am

      Thank you πŸ’• I think my tip to engage with people is to follow blogs you like and if anything speaks to you in their post you like and comment on it. Also making sure to reply to every comment that is made on your post is a good way to engage with people reading your posts!

      I hope I could help 😊😊

      • May 31, 2017 / 8:51 am

        Yes thats helpful… thanks…

    Oh man! I’m still upset that I only have twenty followers (what’s wrong with my science blog????). Anyway, congrats.

    • June 2, 2017 / 7:46 pm

      Oh thank you! I think it takes a bit of time to get your blog to where you want it to be to be honest. With time and consistency you’ll improve and get more followers! Thanks for the comment πŸ’•πŸ’•
