My 5 Year Blogiversary


I can't believe I've had my blog for the past 5 years today. When I started this blog I really just wanted an outlet to be myself and to talk about my passions and dreams. I wanted an outlet to share pictures of my cats, my family, and my life. An outlet besides Facebook and Instagram. I wanted to tell my stories. Over time, I used my blog as an outlet to share about my anxiety and about living my passions and working my way towards my dreams. I am still working on these things and I am grateful that I can continue this journey and share this journey with others. 

I neglected this blog at times. Life got in the way. At times my depression and anxiety got the best of me. But, I always keep coming back to blogging and writing. At the end of 2017, I decided I was going to up-level my blog and really work on my blogging goals. In March I got a bit off track but I am excited to jump back into my goals. To jump back into living my passions and making my dreams and goals come true one step at a time. 

My life has changed so much over the past 5 years. I'm currently 31 when I started the blog I was 27.  I've moved three times over the past 5 years. I've gotten back into my self-care practice. I've discovered goals and dreams. I started working on my book again. I've gotten sidetracked by life and illness but I always pick myself back up. In other ways, my life has really not changed all that much. But, I am excited to see what this year blogging will bring and what changes will occur throughout this year. 



Here are my 5 year and one-year blog stats. I got the original idea from Farm Girl Miriam who recently had her 5 year Blog anniversary as well. She is one of my blogger inspirations.

I've enjoyed blogging the past 5 years. As you can see some months this year I didn't post. And this year I want to work on blogging monthly, up leveling my blog, reaching more people (and hopefully inspiring others), Talking more about my anxiety and how I'm dealing with it, and writing my book. 

I am excited to see where my blogging journey takes me this year and beyond. And I'm thankful to everyone who has read my blog and stuck by me in these past 5 years even when I haven't been super consistent. And everyone who is new to reading my blog as well. 

Love,
Christina
