First Blogoversary!

Felt cupcake with chalk candleYes, it truly has been one full year since I started writing on this here little blog of mine. It honestly has not been a hardship to keep up with it, but rather a joy to share all the small things and big things that have passed into my life, all the new discoveries and learning experiences, the many, many changes that every life undergoes, and all the wonderful people I’ve met along the way. A roller coaster at times, true. But can I just say how nice it’s been to share that roller coaster with others?

So how do you measure the success of a blog? Is it in the number of followers or unique visitors? Is it how frequently you post? It is based on how much it gets shared around through other social media and linked back to by other sites? I know that there are entire articles and books written on such things (I’ve read them in an attempt to learn the secret behind successful blogs). Personally I suppose it is a combination of many aspects, but the most important seems to be just in how much a blogger enjoys blogging. Simple right. Readers know when you aren’t being authentic. So I hope, that if I’ve achieved anything with this blog, it’s that I showed my true colours through each and every post. 365 days and 140 posts later… a small glimpse of this world through my eyes. Stick around for the continuing saga…

    Are you going to start a baby line?

    1. Joanna – I’m definitely considering a baby line of items to sell more regularly, especially since I will be absorbed in the world of babies soon enough. If there are any items in particular that you’re interested in for babies, let me know. Always good to hear ideas from other moms.
