Eight years ago today I gave birth. No, not to a baby. A blog was born!
I kind of can’t believe I’ve been blogging here for eight whole years. When I started I knew nothing about the blogging world or social media. All I knew was that I missed writing. I kept journals off and on throughout my life. And this was a way to start that process again. I love to look back and read my thoughts. Some of it is painful. But that’s just life. If you’re gonna live, I mean really live, you’re gonna go through some pain.
I feel like I’ve come so far. I’ve learned so much about writing. And so much about myself.
I never thought that blogging here could lead to a full-time career in writing and social media. But I’m convinced that the work I put in here and on other websites is what got me hired. With the job I have now I write, blog and manage social media for a living. It’s seriously amazing. I love LOVE LOVE my job! And I really feel like I have this blog to thank for starting it all.
I will say that with all the changes in my life over the last few years, I don’t write here as often as I’d like. If there’s one thing I wish it would be that I could plan ahead a little better. Be more strategic. Keep a working calendar. It’s really not my thing to be so organized. But I’d like to try. I don’t ever want to forget this little space that has brought about so many wonderful things in my life, including some amazing and supportive friends.
Because of this blog I have friends all over the world! You’ve supported my writing, my hopes and dreams and my family. You’ve encouraged me when life got hard. I really can’t ask for much more than that. Thank you, today and always.
Happy Birthday, Mollywood.
p.s. Tomorrow I turn 36-years-old. I’m half okay with it and half really scared to keep getting older. The wrinkles, guys. And the white hairs! Just being honest.
