Three cheers for this blog! Three cheers for THREE years! Three cheers for doing something I love! Hip Hip Hooray! Today is all about the number THREE, in case you couldn’t tell. 😉
Three years ago, I started a blog called Faithful Elephant and never looked back. It has been quite a journey and so much has changed since that very first post. Followers who followed me since the beginning… THANK YOU! Followers who recently stumbled upon me in someway… THANK YOU! I am grateful to each and every one of you who read (and now listen) to things I have to say. Without you all, I would not be inspired to continue this journey.
One thing I have learned as a blogger is that we have to be willing to put ourselves out there. We have to be ready for people to have negative opinions on what we say on a regular basis. Not every person will be a fan of our writing, style, or thoughts. Like any writer, we must do it for ourselves. Sure, we can give the readers what they want from time to time, but we must NEVER lose sight of what we want or why we do what we do.
For me, this blog is an outlet, a passion, a time to be creative, an opportunity to share what I love, and most of all, something to call my own. I may have a long way to go with Faithful Elephant, and I certainly do not have all the means to get it where I want it to be right now, but it is still my baby. I will treasure this blog for a lifetime.
I decided since it was Monday and I am unfortunately suffering from a case of the Monday Blues… I would share some photos that were taken last week during the Blizzard! Although it was cold, David and I were stuck indoors, and we cheated (A LOT) on our diets, we had a blast experiencing 30 inches of snow together. It was also Koa Bear’s first snow, so you can imagine how much fun we had laughing at his first impressions.
Again, I want to thank you all for following Faithful Elephant. I hope you continue to read and listen to my thoughts as time goes on. You are all amazing! Happy Monday and Happy Three Year Anniversary to my baby… FaithfulElephant.com!
