It's My Blogaversary!!!!!!!

Wow- exactly one year ago today, I started this blog. That's so crazy! I still remember setting it up, trying to figure everything out. It's so funny to look back at my first blog posts- oh my gosh! They were pretty awful. I spent so much time, trying to figure out how to write good posts, how to make my blog look nice, etc. Let's face it both of those areas still need work but oh well. xD

Blogging has been so much fun though. Usually I have problems sticking with a project once I start it, but somehow I haven't had that problem when it comes to blogging. Granted, every now and then I'll go a bit too long without posting, but overall it's something that I've stuck with pretty consistently over the past year. 

When I first started blogging, I honestly didn't expect anyone to read it. Nevertheless, I would sit at my computer watching the stats charts for ages, hoping to get a view. Most of the time, I'm pretty sure that I accidentally self-generated those views........

But it's still kind of crazy to me that people actually read this little blog of mine. It's so much fun creating the content, but I never really expected anyone to actually enjoy reading it! I'm not going to lie, getting comments is one of the most fun things ever, because I love when people actually respond to something that I write! It's so much fun talking to you all in the comments and getting feedback and thoughts from you. I love it!!

In this last year, I've somehow managed to accumulate 8,046 pageviews and 27 followers, and I just wanted to say to you all- THANK YOU!!!! Thank you so much for reading my crazy, insane ramblings and for following this blog. It means so much that you all actually read it, so thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!! Thank you so much to everyone who's commented, you all have been so sweet and encouraging, and you make all the not-so-fun parts of blogging totally worth it.

I'm really excited for this next year of blogging. I'm hoping to continue posting, maybe even a bit more than I already do! I also just want to improve this site in any way that I possibly can, because I feel like there are so many things that I could do to make it better. I'm horrible with computers, so I'm not exactly sure how that will go, but hey- I'm going to try! I'm going to have some posts coming out soon asking for some feedback from you all about how I can improve this site in the next year, so please stay tuned for those!

Here's to another fabulous year! :)

  1. Congrats on your Blogaversary!! Haha I remember the days with the awful posts and the constant refreshing only to see that all our page views were our own :') I think it's been around a year since I started too, but now my blog has run into some complications :( Ah well. I totally get what you mean by the fact that blogging is one project/hobby thing that's easy to stick to, because despite this complication I'm still pushing on. Here's to another year of blogging!
