My baby blog turns FOUR today!!!! WOOHOO!!!
Normally I would do some type of huge giveaway post for my bloggy birthday like I did last year but if I’m being real honest here I would tell you that I have been so super busy with work and school that I kind of forgot about my bloggy b-day until it was too late to put something together. Sorry guys…I dropped the ball on that one!!
Anyway, back to my bloggy b-day…who would have thought that I would have ever stuck with something for so long? Not me…HA! I have been through several name changes, countless blog re-designs (thank goodness I do my own work now so I don’t have to pay for those), months where I only blogged one time, and months where I blogged multiple times a day. But through all of that I think I have finally hit my “stride” in this crazy world of blogging.
I love blogging for several reasons. I love making my voice heard. I love getting the chance to be creative whether through blog design, photography, writing, or social media. I love getting the opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone and do things that I am scared of…and then write about it on the internet! HA! One of my favorite phrases that goes through my head as I’m doing something I’m not necessarily comfortable with is “do it for the blog” and that makes it totally worth it!
You can’t do a bloggy b-day post without mentioning posts from the previous year so here are my four most popular posts (by the numbers) from this past year…
Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti
Queso Chicken Pasta
Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer
Homemade Sugar Scrub
…and here are my top four favorite posts…
The Perfect Red Lipstick
Be the Match
Cocaine Mountain aka My Ohio Vacation
Curly Mesh Wreath Tutorial
…see the four theme I had going there? LOL!
I think I’m going to go ahead and wrap this up but I promise to have a big shebang for next year’s bloggy b-day, after all next year will be the big FIVE year mark!!! Cheers to me and here’s to four million more amazing years of blogging!!
How long have you been blogging?? Do you still feel like a newbie or a pro (I feel like both depending on the day…HA!)??
Happy Blog Birthday!! Blog birthdays are so exciting. Here’s to another four!
Yea!! Happy Birthday to your blog!! I had to check out the recipes and the Chicken Spaghetti is one for me to try.Pinned
Congratulations!!! Your blog is one of my favorites just because it really shows your personality and you constantly make me laugh!! Four years is a long time in the blogging world. I’m working on two (and I forgot all about my second anniversary that just happened)! I still feel like a newbie, but at other times I feel like I’ve been doing this forever.
Yay!!! Happy Blog Birthday!!! Congrats on staying focused on your passion! Looking forward to another year of you sharing your thoughts! :)

Congratulations! I recently had my one-year blog-iversary, and can relate to the way you describe your journey. Blogging + life can be challenging at times, but always worth it in the end!
Happy Blog Anniversary!!! I have to read your Ohio vacation post now, the title sounds interesting..lol.
This is so great!! Happy Bloggy Birthday!! I have been Blogging 1 year (celebrated this August) and I still feel like a Newbie :D I think it’s okay though because there is always something more to learn… Congratulations again!
I have only been blogging seriously for less than a year. Before that, it was more of a journal. Such fun either way.
