Four Year Blogiversary

On August 4th I will have been blogging for four years. This is my first post.

In many ways I feel as if I have been blogging forever. Only four years??? And the more I think of it the more I'm amazed, because I've lived so much life in these last four years.

It was soon after starting my blog that I first traveled away from home, alone and during the years since I have traveled more times than I can remember, making tons of friends and learning so much about life and people

In some ways I feel like the person that started this blog four years ago is a distant memory. At least outwardly. But I'm also the same. It wasn't long after starting this blog that I wrote my first opinionated piece.

Since starting this blog I've wrote all my best works, finishing tons of short stories and some novels.

In many ways this blog is exactly the same as when I first started it. It's still pink and green. Still random, mostly designed to share my thoughts and connect with others. This blog is still so me, even as I've developed into a new me.

Even as the blog is the same, I hope it's better. I'm still learning, but I think overall the blog is looking cleaner and is easier on the eyes? I hope that my opinions are starting to make more sense and that there are less typos and errors in my posts and that my writing has become more experienced even as I am.

In honor of my blogiversary I asked you all to ask me questions and here is a video answering all of those questions. I'm sorry it's a bit long - but if I do say so myself, it should still be interesting. I really loved your guys' questions :)



Gray asked what my favorite blog post is, so here are links to my answer: Hard Things Are Often Times Really Fun and Love at First Sight: A Myth

Also, Rakayle asked how many shoes I have. I answered that in the video, then realized I had another pair of shoes for dancing that were hiding away in a bag . . . I have what I say in the video + a pair ;) Wow, why do I have so many shoes???

Thanks so much for being a part of my blog! Enjoy the video, and here's to many more years of blogging together! 

And if you make it all the way through the video, let me know ;D

    1. haha! I'm talkative at church, too. I just have to have something to say and someone to talk to (and I actually thought I was super nervous with the camera). In Sunday School I'm usually silent because I let everyone older speak first. And I find when I do I don't have much left to say. Thanks for watching!

  5. Super great video!
    That's cool that you make your own jewelry! I have played around with making essential oil bracelets. :D
    Your favorite country songs are two of my favorites too!

  6. HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!!! I'll watch the video later; I'm sure your answers will be very entertaining.

    I know what you mean; it seems a blog almost grows with you, especially if you're doing it consistently. Because you start to understand what your style is and what you like to write/talk about, etc. In a lot of ways, it can almost become an expression of your personality, which, of course, grows as you do.

    Hope you have many more years in the blogospphere!

    1. Let me know what you think of it when you watch it ;)

      Yes, that's EXACTLY how my blog feels to me :)

      Thanks so much Alexa :)

    2. Okay, I watched it the other day, and that jewelry you made is gorgeous!! Have you ever considered making some to sell?

      Your graduation dress is lovely! I adore the pink and embroidery; it's super cool that you know how to do that. It looks professional!

      I think that reminder that obedience is better than sacrifice is super important; we can often focus on how big the sacrifice is rather than simply bowing to His Will and being obedient to what He said. So, yeah, I can see liking that verse.

      I love your quote: "Boring things can make interesting things." That's really good.

      Loved the whole video! It made me smile. :D

    3. OH, yay!
      I have thought about watching it, but the thing is each piece is unique and I have a hard time finding time to create more than my collection - and to find a place to sell it ;/

      Thanks so much! For awhile I thought about selling those dresses. But I would have had to sell them for about a $1000 to make anything ;p

      Yeah, it's a great verse. I'm glad you see that haha ;D

      Oh, wow! I forgot I said that and it was totally a spur of the moment quote (I should write it down now . . . )

      Thanks so much for making ME SMILE with your reply ;)

    4. I meant to say "selling them" not "watching it" ;p
