2015 Year In Review

One Year Anniversary :: 2015's Most Popular Posts :: BCI Link Party #21

In December I offically completed one year of blogging and what a year it has been.  The learning curve is STEEP when you are new to blogging and the volume of information can seem insurmountable.  I can't recall too many other areas in my life where I had to not only learn on the job, but teach myself the job and produce at the same time across so many platforms and subject matter.  However, no matter how mind boggling the journey has been it has proven to be satisfying.

Join me as Iook back on 2015 Year In Review and pick out my favorite posts.

There you have it.  The most read post of a 2015.  There were some other noteworthy posts that meant a lot to me like Dear Body, A Love Letter, My Toddler's Race Recap and I'm So Tired Of Counting Calories.

Blogging has given me a voice to share my journey of self discovery as I work toward creating a healthier lifestyle for myself and my family.  As you can see from my experiences the road from point A to point B is not always straight line and life has curve balls but I believe that if our intentions and our efforts are consistent, we will achieve our goals. 

Thank you to a new category of friends - my online community.  A unique group of friends comprised of fellow bloggers, blog readers and #teamMirrorWatching who are all sharing this journey with me. Thanks for hanging in there with me and making 2015 amazing!

I hope you have enjoyed the posts as much as I have enjoyed sharing them.

  1. Congrats on a year of blogging. I know you said that the first year is quite a learning curve, but trust me, sister, it never ends. With the constant introductions to new social media channels, a blogger's game is constantly changing. I feel like I'm always behind catching up with how to keep subscribers, learn about Periscope, and keep up regular posting. It keeps you on your toes, that's for sure! Enjoy your next year!

  2. Yeah I agree with Jelli, I've been doing this for 6 years and I am finding I am just as clueless as day one.

  3. Congratulations on your anniversary. Blogging is a real job, as I am sure you have figured out. As a fellow blogger, I am constantly peddling trying to keep up with so many things that sometimes I find it overwhelming. But, then I find out that I am not alone in this journey. Looks like you had a busy year.

  10. Learning to blog is indeed a steep curve. The greatest part is the community, learning from and building bonds with like minded people. Blogging is one of the best things that happened to me.
