Lessons Learned From My First Year Of Blogging

As I was glancing back over previous posts, I realized that it was a year ago today that I published my very first post. It was in a different blog in a completely different life. As a matter of fact, just about everything about life has changed since that very first post, and yet, here I sit. These days, I am determined to continue this post-a-day challenge if it kills me. And trust me, some days I am convinced that it will.

I have learned so many things from this blogging adventure. First, I have learned that my brain has absolutely no organization whatsoever. Try as I may, there are many days when I can’t get what it says on the screen to make as much sense as what’s in my head. Those are the days when I find myself digging frantically through recent pictures, desperately searching for something I can post. (The next time I post a picture with a random sentence to accompany it, you’ll know why.)

I have also learned that when I find something funny, I am usually the only one who thinks so. On the other hand, the days when I am embarrassed to hit the “publish” button, usually bring in the most support with comments. I’m beginning to think that my mind is a little more backwards that I had originally thought.

Next, I have learned that despite being exhausted and on the verge of a melt-down a mere half hour from the daily post deadline, I cannot walk away. No matter how much I have wanted to on a few occasions, I knew that I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I didn’t hold up my end of the bargain. (Another good time to dig through those photos.)

Finally, I have learned that I adore and rely on my three loyal readers. I love seeing your numbers come up on my stats everyday. In a way, I do this for you now. I can’t possible leave you without any nonsense to read. So, thank you for humoring me. And for encouraging me. After all, if you’re going to stick around to read it, then I’m going to write it.

I still have no idea what I’m doing most of the time, but I guess that is half the fun. So, if you are up for it, I’m going to keep working on this blogging thing. You never know, maybe someday I’ll actually be good at it. That’s not very likely, but I’m having fun in the attempt, and perhaps that’s all that really matters.

  1. We will be your loyal readers to the end, however long you decide to do it! You’ve got fans, girl! You are a very good and honest writer and we look forward to each new day and what your blog will be about. We have never been disappointed! Speaking of photos, I’ve got tons of two certain little girls, if you ever need any ideas. Just saying……

    • I know you have lots of pictures you are dying to share. Maybe I will borrow some good ones of my dear sister! She would love that. I bet I could do a whole month of her hairstyles alone!
