Because I Said So Turns TWO!



Today is the two year blogiversary of Because I Said So! I still can't believe it's been that long. 

When I started this blogging journey, I literally had no idea what I was doing (evidence from my first post--y'all it's embarrassing) The only blog I read was The College Prepster (still my blogging idol) and I knew nothing about coding or photography. I still don't really, but I did fix something on my blog yesterday, coding wise, and I didn't break the blog! (the Instagram icon NOW actually links to my Instagram--you're welcome)

Most of my posts for the first year were personal diary-like. I didn't really have a vision or a specific direction for this blog. 

In the last year, I've started to get more serious about making Because I Said So the best I can. Before, while I've always had a knack for writing, my only readers were my family members. I now attract more readers than I ever even imagined and that number is growing every month! It's truly flattering and humbling to know that people actually care what I have to say.

I'm so thankful to each and every one of you who reads, comments, and comes back to read more of my posts everyday.

Here's a little bit more of what you can expect from this blog this year (a purpose/mission statement/goal statement mash up if you will):

CREATE

Fresh new content that engages and facilitates discussion--while also inspiring

CONNECT

With y'all daily (through social media)

MOTIVATE

Y'all to be your best self--whatever that may be

TEACH

Life lessons that I've experienced and/or learned the hard way





Here's to making this next year the best yet!
