TWO Year Blog Anniversary


On June 24, 2007, I started my blog off with The Virgin Post. I had no idea on what I was going to blog about, how long I would be blogging for, or if anyone would even read my ramblings.

In my son's early years, I was on several parenting forums or message boards. I was that first time mom with lots of questions, but didn't want to bug my in real life friends. I went on the forums looking for answers and found friendships. I was very active on the forums, the first two years of my son's life.

I found that the "forums" were like anything else online, a popularity contest. I had posts with no comments. These were message boards with 10,000+ members, yet I didn't get responses like everyone else. I was tired of being ignored, and wanted to share all of my thoughts, and general "Julie-ness" with someone.

After two years of blogging, I think I've found my "niche" and my people. I've met a ton of people through my blog and on Twitter. I have found that there are people out there like me, and which makes me smile.

I'm glad I stuck with blogging. I'm able to go through my archives and read all my randomness, about Angry Toddler's events, and everything else.

Since it's my 2 YEAR Blogging Anniversary. I will be giving out some gifts! Stay tuned in the next few days for some giveaways. I will be doing some National Giveaways and some local giveaways for Orange County Peeps! I will be posting more tomorrow!!!

  2. Happy Anniversary! One of my favorite things about blogging has been the people I've met or gotten to know over the years. Most of whom I never would have encountered in real life. Cool that you've found your niche!

  7. Julie,

    I laughed when I checked my rss feeds this morning and saw the post! After talking with you about it, I could just see that you were going to have to go home and get a post up. Great job! Can't wait to see all the giveaway stuff in the next few days. I believe you have definitely found a niche, and a great one at that. 2 years is a phenomenal accomplishment!
