Happy Blogiversary to Me {and a mini blog update}

One year ago tonight I sat on my couch and wrote my very first blog post. I posted it for no one to read but Dan...my one and only reader. And now, 12 months later, it's turned into a successful blog that brings me so much joy! I couldn't have asked for more!  So happy blogiverary to me! And did you know that blogiversary is actually a word? If you google it, you'll find it in the dictionary! {Well, it's in the urban dictionary. Does that count?!}

In an effort to produce a blog post that has pictures, I'll point out a few minor updates that Elizabeth at The Mustard Ceiling made to my blog this week.  Because let's face it, a blog post with no pictures is not a fun blog post to read!

Now onto the blog changes.  This is what you see on the right hand side of my page....

1. First, I updated my picture even though I really haven't changed that much. My former picture was taken 2 years ago and I thought maybe it was time for a new one!

2. And did you know you can follow me though many different avenues?

facebook, pinterest, twitter, instagram and feedburner!

Just click on one of those icons and follow the prompts!

3.  Lastly, you can enter your email address here to get an email in your inbox every time I write a new blog post! How handy is that!?!

And now onto the bottom of each of my blog posts. At the end of each daily post, you will see something that resembles the following....

There are my 'follow me' buttons again, in case you missed them on my sidebar.

And have you ever wanted to leave me a comment and can't figure out where in the world to do that?  At the very end of each post, one of the last things you will see is 'leave a comment' hidden in there after my name. I know...it's really a wild goose chase to find it!  But that is how the blog format is set up.

That's it for my blog face lift!

Thanks for reading.  Please continue to follow me as I dive head first into my second year of blogging!
