Today my blog is one year old! I have to admit, when I started blogging, I had no idea what I was doing. I had had a few blogs here and there, but nothing that I actually intended on sticking with, so they always just fizzled out until I deleted them. But this little guy, he made it one whole year, I have posted 486 times, have had 23,367 page views and have 273 followers. That seems so crazy to me, but I love it. I love blogging so for so many reasons. It lets me connect with people who I never would have talked to otherwise, it gives me a place to share my business and life news, gives me a reason to write and take photos and express myself in so many different ways.
It's also really exciting that I've followed through with something, err, anything. I can be such a space case and have so much going on that it's a miracle this blog made it through. Woohoo! But it's funny to see how I have grown and changed over the past year.
Remember when my blog looked like this:
And remember when my hair looked like this:
It's been so rad to go back and see where I was at a year ago, still living in Tucson, planning to move somewhere I had never even been to as an adult (or even a teenager!) working as a moccasin maker and not really seeing where anything would be going. I think though, I have always stayed true to my blog. My voice hasn't changed much, although I try to be more positive lately. The things I write about are pretty much the same; life, work, things I like, people in my life, and our growing business. And puppies. Lots of puppies!
It been a good year, with lots of changes! Everyday I feel lucky to be here, be alive! I look forward to blogging, and I wish I had more time to read more blogs. Soon, I hope! Thanks for going on this journey with me and I hope we have lots of more years to come!!
