2 Years And 345 Posts Later

Monday, June 22, 2015

It's crazy to me to think that two years ago today I was sitting at my desk typing my very first post on this blog. When I wrote those first words and hit publish, I was talking to a quiet audience of no one with no expectations or need to please anyone but myself. I wasn't writing to grow my readership or with any end goal in mind, I was just writing for me. I'd started blogs before and posted a half a dozen posts but they died about as quickly as they started. With a new job on my plate and change in scenery in my life, this time starting this blog was helping me document something other than what we had for dinner the night before.

730 days later, my goals have changed and so has my writing. This whole blogging thing was completely new to me, and I can see that in my writing during those first few months. There are so many things I wish I could go back and tell myself now that I wished I'd known then, but that growth was something that not only helped my blog, it helped me. I've learned so much from not only my own writing, but from the friendships I've built through this blog. I don't know that anyone starts writing on the internet expecting to make friends from all over the country or world for that matter. Texting fellow bloggers experiencing some of the same things I am was definitely not an expectation I had two years ago, but something I am so thankful for in the same breath!

Health, Love and Fire in two years has already documented some of my biggest life events. From loosing my father in-law, to building our new home, and finding out we were pregnant my posts let me look back on what I was going through and how I was feeling during some of the most exciting and emotional times.

So what are my goals for the next two years of this space . . .

I hope to be able to grow even more as a blogger and as a person. And with that growth, I want to help others do that same. 

Continue to post on a frequent basis. While my posts have fluctuated, I've got lots of ideas roaming around in my head and I hope to get posts scheduled and up at least 3 days a week.

To watch my readership grow and increase my participating in other blogs by sponsoring and collaborating.

Make more friends in the blog world.

And lastly, continue to create and be inspired by this little space!

Thanks so those of you who have followed along on this journey, especially those of you who have been around since the beginning! I'm not always perfect and I am definitely always learning and growing and I am extremely thankful for all of you showing up here and joining me on this weird thing called blogging.
