On this day...one year ago

On this day one year ago I wrote my very first blog post on this blog.  I had been reading blogs for years and I finally bit the bullet and started one for myself. My original blog was 100% anonymous. After deciding that wasn't the direction I wanted to go with my blog I deleted it and The Life of Emily was created on February 10! 

My first blog post was so nerve-wracking, exhilarating, exciting and scary all at once! I didn't have a damn clue what I was doing. I wrote it for me. I had no followers. I used blogging as my virtual diary outlet and I really needed it at the time. I remember being so excited to receive my first comments and even have one follower! Never in my life would I have imagined what my blog would be just one year later. And honestly, I wasn't even sure if I would keep up with it!

Blogging has opened so many doors for me over the past year and I look forward to many many many more years of blogging! Through blogging I have been able me to meet some of my best friends, I've been introduced to some great products and places, and even have won some pretty cool stuff! ;-)  I am so glad that I finally bit the bullet and started a blog when I did and I wouldn't change that for the world!
