Aside from the fact that it’s two days from Christmas, today is a very significant day to me because it is my blog anniversary.
I can’t believe it has already been a year.
When I first decided to begin writing this blog, I really didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t even sure how long I would keep up with it. Truth be told, I figured I’d get bored with it and give it up a few months into it.
I had certain things that I wanted to accomplish through blogging, but I just didn’t really know if it was something I would enjoy doing long term.
I knew I wanted to make myself more accountable for my fitness journey, but I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to spread out the remainder of my focus. Lord knows, I don’t work out enough to provide sufficent content to keep people interested and coming back to visit me.
When I look back, I definitely think having this blog has helped keep me accountable and on track when it comes to my training and healthy living, but I’ve also transformed my initial plan to ONLY focus on running. Over the year, I’ve begun opening up into other areas of my personal life as well. I’ve been able to capture and present a view into my everyday life, including my family and other passions, despite the fact that I’m a somewhat private person. (at least when it comes to the emotional side)
After a few months into blogging, I tried to let go of the reigns even more and peel back my reservations.
Don’t most individuals begin a blog to share more? Well, I finally feel ready to do so. It only took me a year.
So, with that being said, there will be lots more in depth/personal posts to look forward to in the upcoming year. I hope you’re ready for it. =)
