happy blogiversary!

Exactly one year ago today, I typed up my first little blog post. A very simple little post about living a blog-worthy lifestyle...

And only a year later... I am astonished at the life lessons I have learned from Blogland...

I have learned to take risks.
The importance of setting lofty goals... things I never thought I would do.

I have learned the importance of accountability.
The simple act of following through... completing those lofty goals mentioned above.

I have learned how to be a better writer.
By no means am I great... I know my blog posts contain spelling and grammatical errors... but I am writing. And that is good.

I have learned to be real.
This one is a work-in-progress. It is so tempting to only post the "good," the "clean," and the "perfect." But that is not real... and that is not me.

So, now... one year later... I re-commit to living a blog-worthy lifestyle... (kind of like renewing your vows... only with Blogland.)
