Somehow my blogging anniversary came and went without much notice! Oops! ;p I wrote my first blog post on Girl Gone Veggie on September 11,
2011. My site did not look pretty, I had no clue what I was doing, and I didn’t really have any readers, but I sure had a blast.
Blogging has only gotten better since then. I started off as a new vegetarian, eager to try and make that lifestyle work for me. A year later I am a confident vegetarian, that knows I am fueling my body in the best way possible for me. I’ve been slowly but surely finding my writing voice, I’ve been able to work with so many incredible companies, and most importantly, I’ve gotten to know so many awesome readers.
One of the best things about blogging is the support and encouragement everyone shares with each other. Getting comments from you guys on my posts makes my day, getting to talk and chat on Twitter makes me so happy, and getting virtual cheers when I work out seriously makes me run faster. I have gotten to know so many amazing women through this blog and I am so thankful for that. Communities like FitFluential, Sweat Pink, and Girls Gone Sporty only help to enhance that bond. I’m so proud to be able to represent them, and so proud to be able to work towards a life of health and fitness. If I can share that love for healthy living with even one person I’ll be happy.
For this upcoming year I have a few blog goals I’d like to achieve:
1. Learn proper SEO and implement it on my blog
2. Increase my blog readership by 50%
3. Attend my first blog conference
4. Keep meeting and getting to know awesome folks like you!
In honor of my blog’s birthday I thought I’d share with you some of the posts I wrote throughout this past year that were some of my favorites. I hope you enjoy!
