Today is a very big day for me and Come Save Away! Today marks the 1-year Anniversary of my First post! It’s Officially my Blogiversary! Woot Woot!
I cannot believe how fast this past year has gone. I remember looking at my husband and saying “I think I want to start a blog” to which his response was “I think that’s great – but do you even know how to do that?” I had absolutely Z-E-R-O idea what I was doing – but I was determined and my fall-forward attitude did not fail me!
It’s crazy for me to think about everything that has happened for Come Save Away this past year. I remember the first time someone I didn’t actually know liked my Facebook Page – I was so excited I ran into the living room yelling “guess what!!” to tell my husband and nearly fell. Or how I made my mom and sister watch every video I posted my First month on YouTube to see what they thought – not to forget that every time I got a new subscriber I had a mini dance party (I still do this!).
This is honestly something I am very proud of. I had no idea how to set up a webpage, organize a blog, or even how to use Twitter (the day I started this blog was the day I joined twitter). Learning how to actually operate a wordpress page or use a widget (which I had to google to figure out what that word even meant) was a task for me in and of itself – mostly because I had zero idea how to write/edit/use any type of code to customize my pages and posts. I remember Google analytics scared me the first time I looked at it and I thought I bit off more than I could chew – but I figured it out. I’m telling you it’s the Fall-Forward attitude I have to thank for this.
Over the past year I have had an amazing time. I have met some great bloggers, vloggers, brands and fans. The support from readers I have received never ceases to amaze me. I absolutely love it when I get an e-mail asking when my next Video will be posted, or just an e-mail asking me to never skip a deal week again ( so keep them coming!). I love that my readers care like that! Thank you all so much for following my blog because it’s success is greatly thanks to you! Without you – I’m just a person rambling away to no one – so from the bottom of my heart thank you!
I can’t wait to see what this next year holds!
