Holy smokes, can you believe that today is my 5th blog anniversary? Take a walk down memory lane with me as I reflect on these crazy 5 years.
5 years ago today, I posted my first blog post called Starting. Haha! When I first started, I wasn’t very wordy or creative with my titles. I literally had no idea what I was doing. I just knew that I had half of a summer left and I figured I’d give this blogging thing a go. I never would have predicted that I would reach a 5 year blog anniversary.
It’s so easy to feel like I’m not accomplishing much online, especially since I’ve been too busy over the past 8 months to do much on here. However, this blog anniversary has given me the opportunity to pause and reflect on things. I may not be a *big blogger* and I realize that I never will be. However, that is ok with me. This site has become my place to get away. I post when I have free time or when I have something I want to share (weather it’s a review or something personal that I don’t want to talk about with people in my real life). It’s with that attitude that I continue to move forward with this site, even if it’s not how I imagined it would be.
Celebrating my 5th blog anniversary is odd. It seems like there’s always someone starting a new blog (which is cool). So, when people hear that I’ve been doing this for five years, they act like I’m some ancient person (even though I’m typically one of the youngest people at a conference) who must have a large following. Whereas, I see it meaning that I’m simply a creature of habit. So, I’ve kept blogging because it’s what I do now. I teach during the day and blog when I’m free. Blogging is my one (huge) hobby that I truly enjoy.
While the past 5 years have been truly un-predictable, this blog has been exactly what I needed. So, thank you to everyone who’s ever read me or commented on a post. I love you all! Happy blog anniversary to Laughing Lindsay!
