post #1,000......


I can't believe I've done 1,000 posts! When I started my blog back in January of 2011, I had no idea how much enjoyment I would get from blogging. I thought for my 1,000th post, I'd do a little blog review, with some stats on my blog, and do a flashback to see what's been going on over the years.

I have 105 followers, but also have several family members and friends that read my blog. I have debated going private, since there are times when I don't really feel free to write what I'm feeling or thinking, but for now, I'm keeping it public for anyone to read. I have even at times thought about going the opposite route and start promoting my blog to try to get more followers, but I think that would just put more pressure on me and make blogging less "fun".

My blog has been viewed almost 100,000 times! My Freezer Cooking- Round 2 post got 262 page views, and I've had 680 comments made on my posts.

I try to post several times a week, but slack at times, when my life is just too busy. I try very hard to make time for blogging!

One of my favorite things about having a blog is being able to look back and see what was going on here at our house or what our family was doing. I also love having a place to save pictures to go back and look through.

Here's a little flashback from the beginning of my blog until now......

I actually tried blogging in February 2010, but didn't follow through. It wasn't until the next year, on January 6, 2011, that I started this blog. I only posted 6 times that month, all cooking posts, and didn't make another post until April 2011- but have posted faithfully ever since.

2013: This time last year, we had a major life event going on in our family......
Nathan was graduating!!! 
one of my proudest moments as a parent!
I was also busy organizing the house and working on lots of DIY projects. One of my {our} favorite projects from last year was our patio project!!! It has provided hours of enjoyment and we spent a big part of our summer out there relaxing, grilling, eating, and bird watching!
