Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! I hope that everyone is having a blessed day celebrating! While there are so many things that I’m thankful for – God, family, friends, my relationship, sweet Franny girl, my sorority sisters, a comfortable lifestyle, freedom, my job, an education – today I wanted to discuss something that’s a little more off the wall: how thankful that I am for blogging!
I started blogging because I wanted a creative outlet. My relationship was long distance at the time, and I really didn’t have much of a social life outside of work events and yoga classes. Winter is dreary, and I love writing, so it seemed like the perfect hobby (especially since it could be done while laying in bed. Haha. #lazy) Since I started blogging, I’ve gotten much more confident in my writing skills. (And I also have seen my fashion sense improve because of all of the other blogs that I read!)
When people ask me how I feel about my job, I tell them that I love it, because it is something new every day. That’s also how I feel about my blog! I love that it’s a learning experience! (Like when I tried to navigate through Google Analytics before 9 am this morning… Yikes!) I’ve become proficient in Hootsuite, learned which companies I will say, “never again!” to, and I become slightly less nauseous every time that I create a giveaway using a widget.
Without a doubt, though, my favorite thing about blogging is getting to connect with such outstanding women! Most days I am amazed that people actually read what I have to say, much less comment on it or send me encouraging feedback. I am so blessed to know y’all, and so thankful for your friendship! If we aren’t already connected on social media, feel free to leave your twitter name in the comments. (I’m @seersuckersass.)
I hope that you enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving, and please be careful if you go Black Friday shopping! (PS – I’m nosy so I’d love to know your Black Friday finds! Hehe.)
What are YOU thankful for today?
