A little less than two years ago I began Blogging. I started this blog with a hope to be able to share some of the things I enjoy (My sister got me started on it). Although I admitted the difficulties of me blogging in my first post- I feel like I have actually made good progress since then. I went from blogging every couple of months or less, to blogging a few times a week on average.
My blog went through the floundering around beginning posts about really random stuff. The photo project phase... which I didn't make it through. The diet-blog phase... which definitely helped boost my reader base. Then this past fall I sort of started writing about whatever was happening in my life, which lead to the Sound of Music Marathon Posts; which I definitely have to thank for my blogs increased reader base and the habit of more frequent blogging. I feel as though I am doing a good job using my blog as a creative outlet. I still feel like 100 posts is a very young blog, but I am proud of how far it has come. I have reached well over 10,000 views at this point, and days that I do post I usually get a few hundred views! I feel so great to know that people are reading the things I post. I feel like I have a voice, and an audience that's listening.
I can say I am not sure what the future holds for this blog. I have tons of ideas floating around in my head. I'd like to start a special feature type of day, more fashion/makeup posts, and some crafting! I'd like to keep posting on a consistent basis, and maybe get to form a real network of other blogging friends. I might look into advertising and some other options of that nature. I realize I am still here trying to find my blogging voice, struggling for refinement, but part of the beauty of my blog is that it is random and messy just like my brain. I see life as a beautiful disaster, full of imperfections and disorder (ironic how much I like organization), so why shouldn't my blog be a little random and messy, like me?
I'd love to hear from those reading your favorite types of posts, and what you would like to see more of. I do write these posts partly for me (and a good mental health project of mine) but also for you. Those who read my blog really help me feel loved and appreciated. I feel like you are right there with me experiencing what I am, and getting to know me and the inner workings of my brain with each and every post.

Thanks to everyone who reads, to those who have inspired me, and to those who said I have inspired them!
