Happy 4th Birthday!

Guess what?! It’s my blog’s birthday! My little blog turns 4 today! I’m so excited! I started this blog in September of 2011 as a space for me to release some creative energy outside of work, and it stuck. I can’t imagine what life would be like if I didn’t have this little corner of the internet to get some of these thoughts out of my head. (My friends already tell me I overthink things.)

To the people that have been around for the whole adventure, thank you so much for being a part of it. To the people who have just recently found me, hello! Feel free to check out my About Page. I hope you decide to stick around, we have a lot of fun in this little space (or at least I do).

In honor of four years I’m recapping my top 6 posts from the past year and my 6 favorite posts from the last year. To celebrate I’m hosting a few giveaways this week of gift cards to my favorite places in Philadelphia, so absolutely stick around this week for a chance to win.

In case you were wondering how this happened, Chocolate Fondue dippers hit it pretty big on Pinterest. 6 Gift Ideas for Bakers gets a decent number of hits off of Joy the Baker’s cookbook page (her page shows pingbacks). As for the rest of them, I’m not sure where the traffic is coming from, but I guess I should probably look into it, huh?

What have I learned from this? My favorite posts to write are always the ones where I get to tell a story and/or analyze a situation. I guess it’s the engineer in me. I’m absolutely okay with that.

Were any of these your favorite as well? I’d love to hear from you, and about what you’d like to see next. And don’t forget to come back later this week to win some really cool Philadelphia gift cards.

Happy 4th Birthday, little blog!

  • my 4 year blogging anniversary is 8/21! how did we just find each other??

    • Good question! Actually, funny story. So, I met Katie McCauley at TXSC13. I didn’t know anybody there are all and she made me feel super at home and included me in things as she was walking around prom. But there was a moment when she said, “I really need to go in search of this girl, I got her book” – and then she ran off to go introduce herself to you. So close to meeting back in 2013. I was replaying that moment as you guys talked about it on BFD. Yay for finding each other now though 🙂
