When I started this little blog over a year and a half ago, I never expected to still be doing it at the point. It was initially a stress release, more like an online journal to get me through those days.
How it turned into the blog it is today stymies me at times. In the beginning, I wrote about really nothing interesting but things that I myself obsessed about…cleaning, organizing, feeding my family…..and was just learning to find my voice. If you go back to my earliest posts, it is much more diary-like in that it isn’t really tailored to the outside world; lots of inside jokes, not really funny ones either and you can tell I am not too sure of myself. As I started to write more and more and create projects I wanted to share with the world, I literally had to beg people to visit this blog. It was a little embarrassing at times.
Four-page views in one day embarrassing.
I really had my dear immediate family and close friends to thank for the initial success because they brought their friends and family to my site and so on.
What I am trying to say is that it hasn’t been easy, I have worked hard to get readers but it has been worth it.
Thank you, everyone, for making this such a great year for my blog and I hope that I can continue to entertain you in 2012!
