It's pretty amazing to think that I've been steadily blogging for a year now. Looking back at the beginning, I can't believe how far it's come. In May 2011, I had a total of 106 views (I'm pretty sure about 40 of them were from me). This month, I've gotten over 1,200 and still rising. I never imagined that this blog would turn into what it has.
My initial intention was to do video blogs about once a week about what different loops the Army sent me though. Have I made a video yet? Nope. I do talk about the different things I've gone through with the Army, but a lot of this has just been about my life as a wife and college student in general. I love reading through my old posts and seeing how much everything has developed in the past year.
It's incredible for me to realize that I was still in high school, unmarried, and not pregnant when I started this. My, how times change. My general knowledge for all things "military" has grown so much in the past year, just by being surrounded by it. I feel so blessed with the life I have. My husband is so good to me, our life is better than I ever imagined it could be. I hope that this blog really shows how happy I am with the military lifestyle. Sure, sometimes this life throws some pretty crazy curve balls at us, but we've learned to swing as they come. We haven't come across something we can't handle yet.
I would like to know where my followers would like this blog to go in the next year. I have changed the structure (and appearance) several times in the past year, but I'd like to get more of a set purpose for this. Do you all like it when I talk about my life in general (baby updates, puppy updates, husband updates, school, crafts, family, etc...)? Or should I try to focus on the military aspect more? I have strayed away from it more than I expected to, but I feel like this blog is still successful. I'm hoping to do more military-related posts in the months to come, but sometimes we just fall into the same ol' routine... Nothing really new to post or rant about. What do you all think? I'd really like feedback! Thank you to all of my followers for making this first year great. Let's make next year even better!
Have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend!
