A Year in Blogging: What I learned and what’s ahead

What an insane year it’s been. And with the craziness of the upcoming holidays over the next couple of weeks, this will most likely be my last blog post of 2017.

Wow, that’s bittersweet.

I started this blog in February of this year. At the time I was just looking for an outlet for my feelings. I was newly diagnosed with anxiety disorder, and after having trouble finding a place where I could read stories I could relate to, I decided to create one.

I’ve published 77 blog posts (here’s #78), made videos, and gained followers and friends – both here on WordPress and across my social media platforms. I’ve connected with other amazing bloggers, business women and bosses, who motivate and inspire me.

I’ve heard from people who told me that in sharing my struggles, I’ve given them the strength to deal with their own.

And to think, when I launched this blog, I never even expected anyone to read it except those closest to me.

This has been a year of major growth. I’ve grown more confident and comfortable in myself. And I can say that I’m truly in a different mind space than I was in the beginning of the year.

I just want to thank all of you! Thank you for every post you read or shared. Every comment you left. Thank you for ever like on Facebook or double tap on Instagram.

And most of all, thank you for allowing me to do what I love in sharing with you.

I’m looking forward to getting a little rest over the next couple of weeks and gearing up for the new year.

I’m looking forward to new projects and collaborations. And to bringing all of you some great content.

Happy Holidays, friends! And see you in the New Year!

    Hi Paulette, I’m happy to hear the blog has served multiple purposes for you and others. Most importantly, having a safe place to discuss and process your feelings is essential to addressing your anxiety. Sometimes I feel so awkward too hahah Then again, most people do 🙂
