Happy ONE Year Bloggiversary to me!!

One year ago at exactly 4:03 pm I pressed “publish” on my blog and literally, the rest has been history! In all honesty, when I published my first post I had no idea who would be reading what I wrote but I was damn hopeful. You can find my first entry here.  Before I had a mommy blog, I did stints with both Diaryland and Livejournal at the end of high school and at points during undergrad. Both were private so that only my friends were able to read it. I actually logged into my Diaryland to check out my first entry there. It’s from December 3, 1999! Oh how my life has changed in 14 years. Really crazy actually.

When I decided to dive into mommy blogging I did so blindly. I thought how hard could this be? I write a little bit about me, Princess Peach, things we do, products we like etc and then people will read it!

“If you build it they will come!” Right? Well, kind of.

If you build it, and tweet about it, and blog about it, and Facebook about it, and connect about it, and pour your heart and soul into it, they will come. And they will come back, again, again and hopefully again!

I like to say that this year I have three full-time jobs; being a mom, being a teacher and being a mommy blogger. The fact is that I love it and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I have met amazing people this past year who I consider friends, been given some phenomenal opportunities that I wouldn’t have otherwise had had I not pressed “publish” and start on my blogging journey. I have learned SO much in 365 days. There was and still is a gigantic learning curve and one that I have found challenging but so rewarding. I absolutely love blogging and sharing tips, tricks, info, great giveaways and just everyday ramblings with all of you.

To my readers, followers, and friends. THANK YOU. Without you, I wouldn’t have kept up blogging. Each comment you make, every time you take time out of your busy schedule to read what I have to say is so appreciated. I wish I could thank each and every one of you for all of your comments that you say to me on the street, or when I bump into you or your messages. It really means the world to me.

To The Hubster, without your support I couldn’t be doing what I’m doing. You fully support my blogging adventure 2000% and I so appreciate it! Thank you for letting me share our life with the world.

To Princess Peach. You are the reason I started this blog. I hope that one day when you are able to read you can look back at this blog as my way of capturing and savouring many of our special moments together. You are the best thing that your daddy and I have done together and I can’t wait to share more of your awesomeness as you grow.

So with that I believe that every celebration should include a cake! So let’s eat cake and here’s to an even better year 2 of blogging!!!

Thanks for reading 🙂
