Three years. Three years I’ve been doing this blogging thing. Happy blogiversary to me!
It started with a ‘just do it’-style note to myself, and was followed the next day with an imperfect dictionary experience. And that was it. I was off and running.
Or off and typing. Same same.
I posted daily lessons to begin with (hence the YLSNED name), covering everything from garden gnomes to volleyball, from baboon diets to giraffe noises, from the cocoa content of white chocolate to Keith Urban’s true nationality.
Compelling stuff, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Then I moved on to more personal posts. I (officially) let go of the lesson format this time last year. I started blogging about whatever I wanted, which has fallen into a natural pattern of renovation posts, song rewrites, personal reflection, book reviews (for little people and big people alike) and chocolate.
I’ve even occasionally shared some family pics.
I will be learning about the ins and outs of blogging. SM, SEO, UV, USP, OMG, WTF? I’ll be learning about making my blog heard, making a difference, and maybe making a proper go of this blogging thing. Or at least using this blogging thing to contribute to whatever my future career may be.
What better way to celebrate three years of YLSNEDding? (Yes, I verbed YLSNED. Three years in, I think it’s worth verbing.)
Are you going to ProBlogger? What are you hoping to learn?
