It’s my two-year blogiversary! As is my yearly custom, this is when I publish a special edition series about the “behind the scenes” of blogging.

My Blog Journey Year 1-Design and Streamline

blog journey year 1

Happy Blogiversary to Lovely Little Lives! It’s hard to believe this has been going a whole year already. Possibly because it has come farther than I could have imagined when I first registered my domain name with the only hope being to jump start my writing again, and possibly because it feels like I have barely scratched the surface of blogging, guest posting, newsletter subscribers and all the rest. But here I am, reminiscing about year 1 and looking […]
