Happy [blog] Birthday To Me!




HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY TO BLOG WITH THE BROWNS!

It's crazy to think that I have been "seriously" blogging for a full year now.  This started off as a follow-up blog to the traveling lifestyle I was living when I worked for Alpha Sigma Tau.  I also blogged about our wedding but didn't get super committed until around Christmas time.  I am so incredbly grateful for the friendships I have made, people I have met in real life, and the outlet to share my crazy life with everyone that cares to know! Today I want to take a look back at the blog's first year and share some of my posts!

FIRST GUEST BLOG POST: Believe in the Sparks
PROUD DOG MOM POST: Stryker's First Award


TWO LESSONS LEARNED- 

1. I think one of the biggest things I have learned is this is a creative outlet, and is a way for me to explore my gifts, passions, and thoughts in a unique way...it is not something that should consume me, or something I should look to in order to define me by how many pageviews, followers, or unique visitors I have each month...it is to share my passions. This is a place to inspire others to be Godly women by using their gifts.

2. Reach out. Always ask questions, and step out in faith. I found that 9 times out of ten when I asked a blogger a question about coding or sponsorships they almost never ignored me, and almost always helped me with my question. I have had great success and encouragement from just simply being willing to reach out to others and not be prideful in my ignorance or uncertainty. 

TWO GOALS FOR YEAR 2- 

1. I want to start blogging more about food.  I need a reason to try new recipes with my husband so I feel like being able to blog about them would help me actually try the new recipes out. They always say you have to practice cooking and fail a few times before something good starts to happen! 

2. Continue to guest blog and have others on the blog as well.  I truly believe that I have the followers I do because of all the guest posts and social media sharing we do for one another!

I hope this next year at Blog With The Browns continues to entice my readers with fun and exciting new from our little family! I want to continue to make improvements on the house, do more DIY projects, and of course, continue the love of baseball through #baseballwifelife!
