One year ago a girl with a small dream sat down at her computer, logged into Blogspot, wrote a few words and added one (yes, one!) picture, called it 'must love junk' and hit publish.
I had been stalking many decorating blogs for awhile before I had the nerve to start one myself. Although I had many doubts and insecurities, finally my overwhelming desire to share my home, my style, and my life prompted me to ask myself "If they can do it, why can't I?" I had zero computer skills (even now they're marginal at best) but one day I just sat down on a whim, muddled through the mechanics of setting up a blog and jumped right in. It happened so fast that I didn't really have a chance to second guess myself or my decision-I had committed.
I didn't really think many people would find me or care what I had to say; I just hoped that someone might enjoy pictures of my home and 'get' me and my love of junk. And I figured that I would just teach myself along the way and have fun with it.
I have been amazed and overwhelmed by the support of fellow bloggers! I've 'met' so many inspirational women who have been through so many challenges in their lives, yet take the time to stop by my blog and leave a kind word. Some bloggers this past year have even asked me to guest post or have featured my blog and my home, and I am so humbled by this!
Whether you have a blog or not, I am so grateful to you who follow along and keep on coming back to my little corner of the world.
I cannot believe that a whole year has gone by since I first embarked on this blogging journey! It has been such a year of change and growth. I have learned SO much, and continue to learn all the time. Blogging has opened the door to some great opportunities, and more exciting things are on the horizon! I feel incredibly blessed and I hope that you will continue on this journey with me.
Please stay tuned for a fun giveaway and more surprises that I have coming up! :)
