A year ago today I started this little blog. I had been reading some blogs I found on Pinterest for awhile and really enjoyed it. I thought, what a great idea! You can blog about your life then you have somewhat of a journal to look back on. Plus, I would see people commenting on those blogs. Leaving inspirational messages, encouragement, funny little lines. I wanted to connect with people too! I might not have 100’s of followers or be famous in blog land or make money from this blog, but I have connected with some amazing people and I am truly grateful for that.
I started this blog on a whim hoping it might be a little fun to document my life happenings, and it has turned into my favorite hobby. What better of a time to really invest in my blog and have my own domain and host my own site. The changeover is a present to myself for sticking with a hobby, faithfully, for a year! I even have my own email address associated with my domain all thanks to my wonderful husband!
Looking back over the last year, while learning some of the ins and outs of blogging, I have decided that blog land is an incredible place! People that you don’t even know are pouring their hearts out on the interweb for the whole world to see. Sharing their daily lives, admitting their struggles, their weaknesses, their fears. Sharing their weight loss journeys, their fitness woes, their marriage, their kids. It is quite amazing. Those that are not inside our world could never understand some of the goings on that we encounter on the daily. We get to interact with people every day that we probably would have never met had we not been blogging. And when you think about it, we are all a little weird, aren’t we? Maybe that is what draws us all to each other.
I have gained great connections with people, new recipes to try, make up tips, outfit envy, and an appreciation for things I might not have given a try had I not read it somewhere on someones blog. So thank you blog land for giving me a hobby. Somewhere to show up and talk and listen. Thanks for sticking around for the last year, and cheers to another!
Leave me a comment with your favorite thing about blogging and the best thing you have learned or gained since you started!
