This week I celebrate 3 years in the blogging world, my blogiversary. Three years, I can’t believe it! In a good way of course. It’s been quite a journey.
Celebrating my Blogiversary
I started out with a site called Real Life For Mom that was hosted on blogger. Then I decided that if I wanted to be taken seriously as a blogger, I would need to have a self-hosted site. I thought long and hard for the right name (that wasn’t already taken, which is pretty hard to do.)
The Write Balance seemed to sum it up so well. I was a mom, on a journey to find balance as a mother and a woman and I was doing it through writing, something I loved but had forgotten about for some time.
Four years later, thanks to all of you, The Write Balance is still going strong. I write five times a week. I have encouragement from family, friends and even those I have never met IRL, but through the wide scope of the internet and the blogosphere. I am able to keep in touch and share not only here, but also through my favourite social media channels, FB, Instagram and Twitter.
When I realized my blogiversary was coming up, I thought, how can I celebrate? I decided that this year, it would be by refreshing my much loved header. It was made by a very talented mother and graphic artist. The I told her her I want to update the banner, since we were all a few years older (and of course wiser,) And she knew exactly what to do.
I love it and I’m so excited to see what this next year of blogging holds in store.
