It's been 1 year since I started this blog. I remember wanting to start a few years ago, but thinking no one would want to read it. In fact, the few people I mentioned it to at the time, weren't super encouraging either. I finally just went for it and am SO glad I did.
When I first started, I had no idea what blogging entailed. There is so much more to it than you realize! And then weird things just happen - like for example, a few posts last year just straight up disappeared. I still haven't figure that one out - if that has ever happened to you, please let me know the secret! Another thing I had no idea about was making sure I was not a no-reply blogger - I didn't even know what that was when I started out. Thankfully, that was pointed out to me in the beginning and I was able to get it fixed. There really is just so much!
As I mentioned earlier, I am so glad I started this blog. I have really enjoyed putting together these posts. It's a wonderful way to look back as time has passed, not to mention a great creative outlet. One of my very favorite things, though, has to be connecting with other bloggers. I have "met" so many wonderful ladies! The comments/emails just make my day. The support the blogging community offers, too, is so nice. If someone is going through a hard time, you know that others are there with a thoughtful comment, or if you just have a question about the ins and outs of blogging, everyone is super helpful. I honestly wasn't expecting the connections to feel that real, but they definitely do!
I am so excited to continue on in this blogging journey and see where it goes! Cheers!
