What I've Learned in Nine Months of Blogging

Wow, nine months have flown by since sitting down and pressing that "new blog" button. Blessed is She has taken on a whole new meaning since the original idea and is still growing into what it is meant to be. I wanted to reflect on the 5 best things I've learned about blogging!

1. Stay true to yourself. There is no point setting yourself unrealistic goals or trying to blog about things you aren't passionate about. To love blogging, you have to love what you're blogging about!
2. Networking is amazing. Don't be afraid to contact some business's like Etsy shops. They love when you do, because they in return get free publicity. I have gained so many incredible contacts and key people in so many places. I feel incredibly blessed.
3. Bloggers are the nicest people you will ever meet. They are unbelievably supportive of one another! These are just some of the lovely bloggers Abbey, Mariah, Gabby, & Grace.
4. Being a blogger isn't 'easy'. Bloggers do not live a glamorous life and become internet sensations over night. There is an incredible amount of hard work that goes into every single post and picture. But I love it!
5. A little bit of kindness goes a long way. Ask any blogger... It can really make your day when someone takes just a little bit of time to acknowledge what you are writing about and leaves a lovely comment on your blog. I am so grateful to every single person who reads and comments on my blog.
