It’s our third blog birthday! Or is it an anniversary? A blogaversary? How every you want to say it, this site is THREE years old today!
Yes, friends, it has been three years to the day that I posted my first post on Every Little Thing She Does! Since then I’ve hit publish on another 285 posts (including this one) and shared recipes, book reviews, baby stuff and everything in between.
Some of you know that this isn’t my first blog. I started my first site, The Pastry Posts, in October 2011 and posted my last entry in December 2013. That blog started when I was working my marketing job post grad school and needed something more in my life that would challenge me. I had always toyed with the idea of quitting that job and going to culinary school, but timing and finances kept me from doing it. As you may have been able to tell from the title, that site was all about desserts and was a way to have my foot in the door to the food world I wanted so badly to be a part of. It was around the time I started that blog, that I began assisting at the cooking school near my house. Over the next few months my position there evolved from volunteer class assistant to part-time teacher to full-time teacher and manager of the school in October 2012. Blog posts became a little more erratic then because I prepped and cooked all day long at work and just wanted to relax when I came home and not be constantly developing recipes like I was before. Since my job was very solitary (until classes started in the evening), I needed an outlet to talk about my other interests and started sprinkle in more personal posts on my site. I didn’t want to shift to a more lifestyle blog under the title and guise of a dessert site, so Every Little Thing She Does was born from there.
Since I started this site in March 2014, my life has changed completely. I got pregnant in May of that year, had Cecilia in January 2015, became a stay-at-home mom and bought our first house. And those are just the major changes that have happened over the last three years! I love that this site has easily grown along with me and that the topics covered here continue to grow as new things happen in our home and to our family and I take on new interests.
I’ve also been so lucky to work with amazing companies over the last three years. I hope to continue to grow this site and that you continue to come back with every new post. If I logged in everyday and saw that no one was visiting, I probably would have gotten discouraged a long time ago. You, the readers, keep me going, so THANK YOU for visiting here and for your follows/likes/comments on social media. YOU ROCK!
I have so many goals for the blog for this year and I’m excited for everything that that hard work will bring. I hope you continue to keep visiting and sharing along with me!
