My One Year Blogiversary

I received a notification from WordPress this morning, congratulating me on my one year blogiversary and all I could think was “Really? It’s been that long already?”


I remember when I considered starting a blog and the dread it inspired in the pit of my stomach. Why would anyone want to read my blog? What would I write about? Where would I find the time to draft posts? Why couldn’t I just focus on writing The Sanctum and leave the blogging to the bloggers?

A year later, I have moments where I wish I could crawl into a shell and just focus on The Sanctum and there are days where I still don’t know if anyone wants to read my posts but that’s okay because I’m just having so much fun with this thing. I had no idea blogging could be such a blast and a year later, if someone told me I could become a blogger for a living, I would do so in a heartbeat.

So let’s celebrate this blogiversary in one of my favorite ways to get down – in pictures.
