We don’t celebrate a “blogiversary” around here usually because it’s always been a little hard to tell when this blog started. Or maybe it is just hard to explain when it became the blog it is today? I started this blog five years ago this week. Five years! And while I had no intention of it sprouting into what it has, this year I’m feeling awfully proud of what it has become and the opportunities it has brought our way. We now have an accountant and an LLC and while I hear so many advice-givers (you know) say, “treat your blog like a business from day one!” I didn’t go that route. I nurture it like any other hobby I am passionate about. It has evolved, most definitely. Our most ancient archives consist of cruise recaps and baby Greta stories that generally kept our family and friends updated. Clearly the content has shifted (I keep a private account on Greta elsewhere now)–but after all of these five years, I can honestly say–I still truly like writing on these pages and I like the direction it has taken and where we’re headed. I like sharing our ups and downs and successes and mistakes. I like looking back through our archives and seeing those old, horribly formatted posts and small photos. Seeing how our design sense has changed over the years. Watching the comment counts go up and down. Reading and realizing we’ve gotten so much more confident in our DIY projects. Witnessing space after space evolve as our writing and personalities and family does. And really, we love connecting with you.
I’ve created a little survey so that we can better understand who you are, where you’re coming from and all that jazz. Because while I love blogging and did blog for many years just for me, these days–you keep us motivated and going. Click the link below to take the short survey, will ya?
