It’s My Blogiversary!!!!!
Can y’all believe that it has been one full year since I launched positivelytonine.com? I can and it’s exciting to know that I was able to build something out of nothing and sustain it all on my own for 365 days.
Let’s Look Back
Positivelytonine was created out of my love for writing, my desire to learn all about and share God with others, and my longing for a community of like-minded, well rounded, and funny Christian women that I could connect with weekly, learn from, and possibly teach or encourage in spite of our being stuck indoors.
Here are a few highlights from year one:
On May 16, 2020, I published my very first blog post.
I started off writing about how I was able to learn valuable lessons through my classroom experiences.
I thought it would be helpful to write educational posts geared towards helping parents with at-home learning.
I had my niece for the summer, so I’d say that it was totally worth it.
I was blessed to see another year and I felt it post worthy given the current state of the world, so I shared my 32nd year.
The posts were consistently faith, education, lifestyle with a few sprinkles of writing in varying orders.
I published my debut children’s book ” School Supplies for Sale ” and revamped pages on the blog to include the new edition.
Don’t forget to grab your copy.
The writing continued, but as I neared one year, I started thinking about my brand and my blog as a business. I added ads to the site and I am currently continuing my weekly posts until the end of the school year. I’ll use the summer to learn, make changes and grow.
I still have a ton to learn about partnerships, SEO, newsletters, and growing this community, but I am so excited for the journey.
