Three years ago today I posted my FIRST tutorial to the internet ever. Wow, what a long way I have come!
I have certainly learned a lot about blogging over the past few years. Using a good camera, posting BIG photos, focusing on my niche, etc. I have also enjoyed being a part of the "blogging community" for the past few years as well. I've followed some bloggers for the full three years and watched them blog about getting pregnant and having a baby and they are like full grown by now! Or...ya know...two. Same difference.
I've have some pretty big changes in the past three years as well. When I posted on January 7th 2011 I was home on winter break before going back to school to finish out my junior year in college. A couple months later I would be get engaged and then married and then here I am a wife almost married for two years!!!
It's fun to have a blogiversary near the beginning of the year - it's a good time to regroup. This year I want to try to focus on connecting more with my blog. I want to post more about my life and try to connect more with my readers and other bloggers. I think I got more comments when I started blogging than I do now. Three years ago we didn't have pinterest so if you liked something you commented on it! Now it's just so easy to pin something to save it for later and never really give a shout back to the blogger to let them know you appreciate them sharing. I want to be better at that this year and maybe it will come full circle :)
As a fun little way to kick off the year and celebrate my past three years of blogging, I've put together a little giveaway of some beading goodies!
In the mix are some charms, pendants, crystals, and a bunch of green beads because I never wear or make anything in green haha. Just one of those colors that is not for me! So another green lover can enjoy them.
The giveaway is open to US only. Enter in the widget below!
THANK YOU for following My Girlish Whims. Here's to a new year of blogging and a new year of being inspired!
