TWO Year Blog Anniversary


On June 24, 2007, I started my blog off with The Virgin Post. I had no idea on what I was going to blog about, how long I would be blogging for, or if anyone would even read my ramblings.

In my son’s early years, I was on several parenting forums or message boards. I was that first time mom with lots of questions, but didn’t want to bug my in real life friends. I went on the forums looking for answers and found friendships. I was very active on the forums, the first two years of my son’s life.

I found that the “forums” were like anything else online, a popularity contest. I had posts with no comments. These were message boards with 10,000+ members, yet I didn’t get responses like everyone else. I was tired of being ignored, and wanted to share all of my thoughts, and general “Julie-ness” with someone.

After two years of blogging, I think I’ve found my “niche” and my people. I’ve met a ton of people through my blog and on Twitter. I have found that there are people out there like me, and which makes me smile.

I’m glad I stuck with blogging. I’m able to go through my archives and read all my randomness, about Angry Toddler’s events, and everything else.

Since it’s my 2 YEAR Blogging Anniversary. I will be giving out some gifts! Stay tuned in the next few days for some giveaways. I will be doing some National Giveaways and some local giveaways for Orange County Peeps! I will be posting more tomorrow!!!

Julie,I laughed when I checked my rss feeds this morning and saw the post! After talking with you about it, I could just see that you were going to have to go home and get a post up. Great job! Can't wait to see all the giveaway stuff in the next few days. I believe you have definitely found a niche, and a great one at that. 2 years is a phenomenal accomplishment!

Happy Anniversary! One of my favorite things about blogging has been the people I've met or gotten to know over the years. Most of whom I never would have encountered in real life. Cool that you've found your niche!
