I can’t believe it, but this month marks an entire year of me blogging on a regular basis! To celebrate I have teamed up with Belle Bermudez-Tubel of One Awesome Mama, who is also celebrating her one year blogger-versary, to bring you a spectacular $250 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway! Stay tuned for more info on that at the end of the post!
I have always loved writing, telling stories, venting about life, love, and children…blogging has given me such an amazing outlet!
It has also been a freaking BIYATCH at times! Let me tell you, blogging is no picnic. There are ups, there are LOTS of downs, there are moments of triumph and feelings of complete failure. I have had days where I am so proud of myself for completing goals, getting published, having great feedback, etc.
And there have been plenty of other days, weeks even, where I have been so close to giving up, to throwing in the towel because putting in hours and hours of work each day for NOTHING was just too hard.
Yet here, I am, a full year later, still plugging away, still finding enjoyment in posting tidbits and rants, advice and stories. While I am nowhere near where I had hoped to be at this point, I am seeing gains here and there, I am finding solace in increased publication and monetary opportunities. What more can I ask for?
That being said, here is a list of my top 3 posts for my first year blogging!
Check them out and let me know what you think! Also, here is a list of posts that were picked up and published by larger online publications such as Scary Mommy, Blunt Moms, and Sammiches & Pysch Meds…..Yeay!
Which is your favorite?
