Happy Birthday She’sWrite!

Go, go, go She’sWrite! It’s yo birthday! We’re gon’ party like, it’s yo birthday! We’re gon’ sip Bacardi like… Well maybe not, but it has been one year since I started this blog.

My first year of blogging has been great because I’ve learned a lot. Most of my lessons have centered around how little I know about social media, but it’s been fun to explore. I’ve met some really cool people, some really crazy ones too. Though many consider me one of the crazies and that’s OK.

Hubby has been pushing me to start a blog for years, and I finally did because I felt the need to carve out a little space for me. I remember when I started, I wondered in my first post if anyone besides him would read it. Yep, folks read it.

I’m still surprised when people tell me that they follow my blog. I try not to think about who out there could be reading/judging my ramblings because I don’t want to censor myself. If I thought about it, I wouldn’t tell you about me glaring at the other daycare mommies, my judgment of a little brown girl in the grocery store, how I sometimes get the blues or that my kid knows Eminem lyrics.

But again, this is my blog, my space and I’m so glad it’s here. It helps my mind to breathe.

I’m even more thankful to you for listening to me, calling me out when you disagree and showing me new life lessons. I look forward to my next year of blogging as I hope you do too. Big things are on the horizon including a complete fancy-pants redesign and (drumroll please) self-hosting. For the technorati that’s not a big deal, for this low-tech lady, it is.

Thanks again and keep coming back for more.

Go She’sWrite! It’s yo birthday! We’re gon’ party like, it’s yo birthday…

  1. Happy Birthday to your blog! I am right now where you were a year ago. 🙂

  2. Happy Birthday! Good for you.

  3. Congrats on your blog anniversary!

  4. I can’t believe you’ve only been doing this for a year! Your blog seems so well-established. Happy birthday!

    • Well-established? Thanks, but it doesn’t quite feel like that. I feel like there’s soooo much more I want to do, but that’s what the future is for, right? Your blog is good too, I learn so much!

  5. Yay! Congratulations on your blogoversary 🙂
    I have one coming up in 78 days! I can’t believe I’ve been blogging that long considering I feel like I’ve just started and have no idea what I’m doing. I’m going to have to stop calling myself a newbie!

    After you’re finished with your redesign and self-hosting we’ll have to “talk”. I think I want to do both, but not sure about some stuff. I want to wait until closer to my 1-year, though, so I have some time.

    Congrats again! Looking forward to another year of reading your blog 🙂

    • Sure thing! Though now that I’ve told the world a redesign is coming, I’ve run across a little stumbling block, but it’ll all get sorted. Meantime, not sure of how much help I’ll be, if I figure it out myself, then I’ll be quite proud!

  6. Woot woot!
