It’s been a year since I started this crazy adventure of blogging. Hooray! Time to pop some bottles and celebrate! I was really excited about starting in on a new adventure but the idea of opening up myself to the world was super nerve-racking. I know that I’ve learned so many things through this process. The greatest thing I’ve learned is just to be myself and most importantly to be comfortable with who I am. I remember being really concerned about how I was being perceived and sometimes letting that take over. I’ve come to realize as long as I’m doing what I love, it really doesn’t matter. And I have loved this past year of Shannon Did What.
When I started to get people requesting that I write certain blog posts, it started to hit me. I felt like I was actually succeeding with this new adventure, like people were valuing my opinions and advice. I love helping other people, so this was huge for me. It was also crazy when my roommate started to refer to me as “her roommate…who’s a blogger”. I never thought that I would think of myself of the “blogger” type, but hey never say never, right?
I’m so grateful for all of the support and love that I have been given over the past year. Really it means so much and has really helped me be me! Can’t wait to see what else is in store!
