3 Years What? Happy Blogiversary to Me!

1 Flares Filament.io 1 Flares ×

That’s right y’all. I’ve hung on to this little piece of .com real estate for 3 years now. I missed it by a day (or 2) but I’m 3 years old now. Don’t split hairs and point out the obvious. I’m talking about this blog, not about me. 


It’s an amazing thing. They (whoever “they” are) say that the majority of blogs don’t withstand the first year. I’ve made it to THREE. Happy (we all knew I was stubborn) blogiversary to ME. My first post didn’t contain a single photo. It didn’t seem important back then. I just wanted to talk, to myself, even if I was the only one that listened. But other people joined along (again, I’d like to thank all 10 of you) and I grew. I learned that photos were important. I learned that sharing healthy recipes meant people that I had no clue existed would pop in from time to time. I grew. 

I’m not huge (neither in stature nor page views) but I’ve grown. I like how I’ve organically grown and I love all of the other opportunities that this little dot on the internet map has afforded me. And I truly love the real life connections I’ve made since joining the blogging community. I’ve gotten really frustrated along the way and thought about throwing in the towel way more than once. This, along with my other gigs, is a lot of work. But I love what I do and I’m happy to be 3! 

I’ve decided, I’m in this for the long haul. I’m sure I’ll still get frustrated from time to time. I’m sure I’ll be hit with the sudden urge to throw this laptop off of the balcony at least once a week. And I’m sure I’ll sit here and scratch my head wondering why, oh-why, would anyone want to read anything I have to write on a daily basis. But that’s OK. Because, as with anything that you truly love, there are always frustrations in life. If you see more good than bad. If the scale is tipped in your favor. You just don’t give up, and I don’t plan on it any time soon. 

I’m proud of this little dot. I’m proud of myself and my staying power. This is the most fun and rewarding “job” I’ve ever had in my life. What are you most proud of in your professional career?
