Hi guys! Today is a big day! Well November 22nd we’re a few days off that’s okay. But my not so little blog is officially six years old! As I reflect on the past six years of my blogging journey, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible experiences, lessons, and connections that have unfolded. It has been a remarkable ride, filled with self-discovery, challenges, and, above all, a passion for sharing my thoughts and ideas with the world. In celebration of this milestone, I want to share six key things that I have learned durning my blogging adventure.
6 Things I’ve Learned.
1. Authenticity is Key:
In the vast online landscape, authenticity stands out. Over the years, I’ve learned that being genuine and true to myself not only attracts a more engaged audience for the most part but also brings a sense of fulfillment. Whether sharing personal stories, funny tales of motherhood or discussing topics close to my heart, authenticity has been the biggest part of meaningful connections with my readers.
2. Consistency Breeds Success:
Consistency in posting not only keeps your audience engaged but also contributes to the overall growth of your blog and social channels. From the early days of irregular posts to establishing a consistent schedule, I’ve witnessed the positive impact on both readership and the blog’s visibility. Consistency builds trust and reliability, two essential elements for a thriving online presence.
3. Embrace the Learning Curve:
Blogging is a continuous learning process. From honing writing skills that I’m not the best at to navigating the ever-evolving world of SEO and digital marketing, each day brings an opportunity to learn something new. Embracing the learning curve with an open mind has allowed me to adapt to changes, stay relevant, and evolve as a blogger.
4. Community is Huge:
The connections forged within the blogging community are invaluable. Engaging with fellow bloggers, supporting one another, and participating in collaborative projects have not only expanded my network but also enriched my blogging experience. Building a community fosters a sense of belonging and provides a support system during both triumphs and challenges. I love all of the friendships I’ve made along the way.
5. Adapt to Change:
The digital landscape is dynamic, and adaptability is a blogger’s best friend. Over the years, I’ve witnessed shifts in content trends, platform algorithms nearly daily these days, and audience preferences. Adapting to these changes, experimenting with new formats, and staying on top of industry trends have been crucial to maintaining vitality.
6. Celebrate Milestones:
In the hustle of content creation and engagement, it’s essential to pause and celebrate milestones. Whether big or small, each achievement is a testament to dedication and hard work. Taking the time to acknowledge and appreciate these milestones not only provides a sense of accomplishment but also fuels the passion for the journey ahead. Just like today as we celebrate turning 6!
Thank you so much.
As I raise a virtual toast to six years of blogging, I am filled with gratitude for the lessons, friendships, and adventures this platform and all of my platforms has brought into my life.

Here’s to many more years of storytelling, connection, and discovery! From the bottom of my heart thank you guys so much for being here with me.
