Here I am, wrapping up my first year of blogging! My first post went live on August 13, 2017, and I’ll have posted 61 times by the end of the year. It has been an exciting and daunting task, and I still have a lot to learn about blogging, writing, and serving my readers. I’m thankful for each of you who has been reading along, encouraging me, and giving me suggestions. You all are the best.
I’m full of ideas and plans for the blog as we move into next year. I’m going to have a word of the year that will be the 2018 blog theme: I’ll be announcing that on Tuesday, January 2, so make sure you don’t miss it! I’m planning some fun book giveaways and have other secrets up my sleeve. I’m excited to see what’s in store for 2018. Want to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun?
