Blogging, Humor, Life

2011 Grace Full Year in Review


When I started this little blog over a year and a half ago, I never expected to still be doing it at the point. It was initially a stress release, more like an online journal to get me through those extra long days.

How it turned into the blog it is today stymies me. In the beginning, I wrote about really nothing interesting but things that I obsessed about…cleaning, organizing, feeding my family…..and was just learning to find my voice. If you go back to my earliest posts, it is much more diary-like because it isn’t really tailored to the outside world; lots of inside jokes, not hilarious ones either, and you can tell I am not too sure of myself. As I wrote more and more and create projects I wanted to share with the world, I literally had to beg people to visit this blog. It was a little embarrassing.

Four-page views in one day embarrassing.

I have my dear immediate family and close friends to thank for the initial success because they brought their friends and family to my site and so on.

What I am trying to say is that it hasn’t been easy, I have worked hard to get readers, but it has been worth it.

Thank you, everyone, for making this such an exceptional year for my blog and I hope I can continue to entertain you in 2012!
