As I reflect over the past year, I am reminded that 2018 has been full of highs and lows. For me, one of my highs has definitely been this blog. However, I’m going to be honest with you, building a blog from the ground up in a saturated market is an uphill battle. I have definitely thought about throwing in the towel more than once, but then a little victory turns up and I’m back in the game!
The bottom line is, I love creating content for readers, and all of the components that surround running a blog.
I remember lying in bed when the idea of starting a blog first settled into my brain. I was going over all of the things I would have to learn. From DSLR photography, to how to build a website, to social media marketing. I literally thought WTF, there is no way!
But then a voice popped in and said, “Just keep going.” So I did! It took a lot of time, but I did it, and I launched BlissMakes in September 2017. From that point on, when things get tough or disappointing, I always use the mantra “just keep going.”
I know one thing for sure: I still have so much to learn!
One of my 2019 intentions is to take a few courses related to blogging. Another intention is to primarily blog about crafts and design. This decision was a tough one as I love to cook! However, I don’t like measuring and testing. I’m more of a freestyle sort of girl. So as of right now, I’ll primarily focus on two things I’m truly passionate about: DIYs and home décor.
Here is a list of the most visited blog posts of 2018!
I for one am really looking forward to the new year! I have lots of exciting plans to look forward to and I can’t wait to share them with you! What are some of your intentions for the new year?
