This month marks my first year of blogging!
While I am certainly nowhere near being a pro and there are so many things I still need to learn, I thought I’d share some of the ups and downs I’ve experienced with this little space of mine over the past year.

When a reader begins to comment regularly:
Telling people what my blog is about:
Food…fitness..whatever comes to my brain. Boom.
Figuring out what plugins were:
Trying to remember what I ate in the past week because I forgot to take pictures:
Pretending I’ve got this whole blogging thing down:
Fake it ’til you make it, amiright?
Hitting publish and hope for the best:
Questions: Do you have a blog? How long have you been blogging for? Have you experienced any of these ups/downs? When reading blogs, what makes you keep reading?
