My First Blogiversary!

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Today marks one year since my first blog post on this little place known as Young & Southern! AND this is also my 100th post! Big day! For old time's sake, you can read my very first post here.

I've said before that I started blogging as a New Year Resolution to keep a record of the little things in life, and celebrate the big things, too. I've always been a scrapbooker and a picture person, but journaling is something that I always seemed to slack on even though I love to write. Blogging was a natural choice to combine words and pictures and record-keeping.

I am so thankful for all my readers: I didn't set out to get any followers at all, since this blog was really just for me. But knowing that I have readers and followers makes writing and keeping up with this so much more fun! Your comments mean the world to me. Thank you for following along!

This year I have some fun plans for the blog that I think you'll enjoy. The idea is that every month will bring a new challenge for me. I have some ideas already - for instance, I know we will be doing another Essentials Only Month - but if you have any ideas, please share! After all, I will need 12 challenges in all. January's challenge is still TBD, but I have an idea. I'll share soon!

Thank you again for reading about our little life in Greenville, SC. It means more than you know!
