Happy Blog-iversary!

Celebrating 5 Years of Blogging
Celebrating 5 Years of Blogging

Today marks 5 years of my blogging journey! It’s been incredible and imperfect at the same time, but I’ve learned so much about myself. Three years ago, I moved my blog to WordPress and made the best decision to get more in tune with posting. I was always somewhat self-conscious about every post I wanted to publish until I started dropping the excuses and tried to focus more on being my authentic self. In honor of accomplishing this milestone, I wanted to set 5 goals for my blog this year:

  1. Blog more frequently. After switching my site over to my new domain, I made this promise to myself. I’m not going to put a number on how many posts I expect from myself a week, but I just want blog posts to be front of mind when I have ideas I want to share.
  2. Take more photos. Every single blog post must have a photo; it’s been my rule from day one. I also love documenting my experiences with a visual reminder that can bring back so many great memories.
  3. Build my blog Instagram. Hand in hand with taking more photos, I’d like to post more on Instagram to get some brand recognition and take this project to the next level. Make sure to give it a follow to keep up with what I’m up to next!
  4. Keep it personal. This blog has always been for me and for anyone else who can relate to it, but I still want to promise myself that it won’t turn into some influencer haven where I talk more about products than my experience. (Not that I have any sponsors, but still a good reminder for myself!)
  5. Share. I want to be more open about sharing my blog and continue to sweep the last remains of intimidation away because there are so many great opportunities to connect with people through writing.

As always, I want to thank everyone who has encouraged me and supported me on this journey. I wouldn’t be where I am today without it and am so glad I’m able to share this with you. Here’s to many more years of blogging about the beautiful moments life has to offer and living with a positive mindset!
