It's My Blog-iversary
Well friends, I did it! I met my first blogging goal! I can’t believe it has been a whole year! What started as something my husband encouraged me to do, turned into a passion and a joy of mine. I have always been insecure about my writing. A teacher in high school, and another in college told me that writing was not my strong suit. I believed them, and the thought of writing always made me cringe.
I still am not always confident in my content, but I stick to it and have continued to write. I got the sweetest feedback and encouragement from friends.
I wanted to share some goals I have for the next year of my blog and some things I have learned this first year of blogging:
A few things I want to improve on over the next year
Better photography- I really want to work hard to have quality photos. This means playing around with my camera more, and have photographers help me with photos for the log as well. If only my bestie lived closer- she is an amazing photographer!
More series and guest posts- I want to plan more series based content in order to dive a little deeper into some topics. I also love introducing you guys to friends and other bloggers through guest posts, so more of those will be coming as well.
Working with Brands- I do not have a huge desire to make my blog a business. But I do want to work with brands to share things I love with you guys!
A few things I have learned this year-
I don’t need tons of followers- I don't need a million followers, because I have the best group of readers a gal could ask for! You guys engage with me, support and encourage me, and that is awesome, and why I continue to write.
The moment I feel like it is work, is the moment I want to give up- Several times throughout this year when I have debated turning my blog into my business, I got writers block and had no desire to blog at all. This is a creative outlet and passion project for me, and I want to keep it that way.
From my analytics- you guys really like it when I talk about my kids- This one made me laugh. There are significantly more views when I blog about my kids. Clearly, you guys just know how awesome my kids are!
Now it's time to celebrate!!! I will be posting a giveaway to celebrate my blog-iversary. Make sure you subscribe to the blog so you don't miss it!
