I started this blog August 1, 2017 and I have been met with nothing more than love and support from the blogging and social media community! This meant so much to me because when I started out four months ago, I KNEW NOTHING about blogging. I had one follower (*cough* My number one Fan *cough* AKA my husband 😉 ) and didn’t even know how to resize a photo! LOL! I heard before that bloggers can be really “cut throat” to newbies. BUT I personally, NEVER EXPERIENCED ANY OF THAT. In fact I had quite the opposite! I’ve made so many friends since starting my blog and they’ve all lent so much advice and support to me!
I never want to be someone who forgets where they came from and who helped along the way so in honor of the New Year for this blog, I’m sharing my first blog post, the top three viewed posts and I want to mention a few ladies who helped me get my blog up and running in 2017!
My First Blog Post
Like I mentioned, my blog went live on August 1, 2017 with this post! . And LITERALLY THAT DAY, I was on my instagram account and came across a photo from my now-friend Rebekah who mentioned she was looking for bloggers to join her team and guest blog on her site over the 2017 holidays, which she does every year!! I figured, “sure I’m ONE day old, so I have zero blogging experience, but what they hey?!” The worst she could say is “no” or “nothing” right?!
Long story short, She messaged me back! Of everyone that I’m sure contacted her, she chose ME and just four other lovely ladies to join her Holiday Team who I will mention below!
Not gonna lie……It was SO intimidating at first. Everyone she chose was already so successful I was definitely feeling like a little fish out of water LOL! BUT Rebekah IS SO SWEET, she became my very first blogger friend! 🙂 Then everyone on the team became my second, third, fourth and fifth!
I could write a post about every single one of these ladies individually but I’ll just direct you to their sites here so you can find out for yourselves how amazing they all are!
