First Year Of Blogging

Hello Everyone,
Just wanted to pop in and say that today marks my first year of blogging!!! I really can't believe thats it's been a whole year. This past year has been very interesting ( to put it mildly) and I really don't know what I would  have done without blogging. I usual don't get super personal about myself because I want this blog to be about the crafting, vintage loving positive side of me. But I wanted to share a little bit more about myself, today.

A year ago I started this blog because it felt right, it felt like something I should do. I wasn't looking to get tons of followers, or to be featured on anyone else's blog; I just wanted to blog for me. A year ago I was graduating from high school, thinking that I knew what I wanted and thinking that everything was going to be on my time table ( funny how things never happen on your time table).

This week I've been thinking about this past year, and all the things that have happen. I didn't do the things or I should say start the things I thought I would. I've had to learn that it doesn't matter who you are, that God has a very specific and special plan for you in life ( and that everything is in his time not ours). Which was a very hard concept for me to understand.

I know you all are thinking " Katie what does this have to do with blogging ". Well I realize that I didn't accomplish what my friends had accomplish this year but thats ok. Cause through blogging, I've met some awesome people, I started my own Etsy shop (which is still crazy to me) and I have a small little group of people who care about what I write.

So 286 post later with over 400 comments and with over 19,000 views, I'm a very happy camper. Who can sit back and say that I've done something, that a lot of people would never think of doing. I've accomplish so much for myself in this past year, that I can't wait to see whats to come.

Blogging has been a wonderful thing for me and I'm so happy that people have respond to this blog with such love and support. Those 400 comments that I mention... I read them all. Any e-mails I get from you guys...I read them all. I'm so bless and thankful to have your guy's loves and support. So I thank you if you read this blog and have become a follower, if you left a comment, share my blog with some else, or have featured me in some way.

I can't wait for the next year of blogging and I look foreword to sharing the journey with you guys!

Love you all,


  1. Congratulations on your first anniversary!

  2. Well done - so glad you've found the experience so rewarding! As a fellow blogger at the opposite end of the chronological ladder to you, I too have found the experience very rewarding and found some really great contacts, many of whom I can now call real Friends, as opposed to the social media variety if you know what I mean!

    Love you woofer - I'm a sucker for any dog pictures, and look forward to seeing more of both you. Meanwhile, now I'm back on line again - was cut off for 3 weeks,without warning - which was a shock to the system - hope to see you visiting my site sometime soon - it's - we're looking forward to seeing you there!

    All the best in the meantime - and carry on blogging1

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and I'm glad your back online!
