Stephanie recently gave me the task of looking back on a few of my old posts.
It turns out, I’ve been at this blog for almost 2 years and a whopping (for me) 320 posts! This blog started out as a way for me to document my life, but it has turned into so much more than that. I’ve found the start of my voice, I’ve made friends, and I look forward to blogging *almost* every week.
So, here goes…a look back at a few of my most notable posts:
The one where I shout my love for Jonathan from the rooftops. I could add a million reasons why I love him to this post, but 25 is enough for now. Gotta keep him guessing, right?
The one where I reveal the truth about wedding dress shopping. This is probably the biggest wedding secret that was never revealed to me, but every woman should know about.
The one where I got real about plagiarism. I feel very strongly about stealing content, but I sometimes forget that those principles apply to the internet too. This post reminds me that the internet isn’t a free-for-all and that you still need to cite your sources.
The one where I discover the life of pugs. Pretty much any post about Josie receives way more traffic than posts where I talk about human beings. This is probably my favorite Josie post and the pictures still crack me up.
The one where I confront the validity of Sandra Lee’s “cooking” show. I felt like there could have been quite extensive and hilarious banter on this, but I settled for the hilarity that ensued on Twitter. Bless multiple social-media outlets.
Most Surprisingly Successful:
The one where I make pecan pie. I get several hits weekly for this post, mainly the hits are from people looking for When Harry Met Sally quotes. Sadly, I doubt any of them made the incredible pie that this post actually features.
Most Pride Worthy:
The one where I quit my job, moved across the country, and started acting like a grown up. I often forget how huge of a leap I took, but it makes me incredibly happy and proud that I am capable of changing the course of my life.
I would love to take a tour of these blog histories:
