One Year of Blogging
So, it's been one whole year of blogging and taking breaks and then blogging. How exciting is that? And oh what a difference a year can make. I can't tell you all enough how this journey has been and I'm still a small blogger (I mean that in the best way possible). This post isn't much, but I wanted to take the time to thank everyone who has been on this journey with me.
One thing I wanted to get out of creating content was to be transparent with my audience. I wanted to share the good and the bad, and I wanted to share everything in between. I wanted to find my voice again after I felt like it had been lost, like I had been lost. Everyone this day and age knows their purpose (or somewhat of their purpose) and for a little while, I didn't exactly know what mine was. I knew I wanted to do something with my life and something grand, but I couldn't put a finger on it.
So, in my time of confusion and heartbreak and feeling lost, I started this. And I have a numerous amount of posts dedicated to why I started blogging and the journey that got me here.
But, I did something that made me nervous - I started all of this. It's been my brand, my name, my pride and joy. It's something I was too ashamed to start, but now here we are. Something that is amazing. Growth is amazing. And my support system is amazing.
One whole year of testing things out with creating content, dealing with writers block, changing my brand numerous amount of times, working with brands, being denied working with brands, being nominated for an Influencer award, so much has happened.
But I wouldn't be here without my family, my friends, my photographer Reagan, and anyone and everyone who reads my blog and/or listens to my podcast. In one short year, I went from feeling so small to feeling so resilient. Thank you, thank you so so much. You endless love and constant support has meant the world to me.
Without a doubt I cannot wait to see what the next year, two years, hell, even five years brings me. Maybe this step I took, might just be everything I want and more.
